Legendary #BATMAN Comic Book Artist 'Norm Breyfogle' Medical Stroke Fund

Yes, we have some sad news to report here at the BAT-BLOG and also some good news.  Norm Breyfogle, the legendary “Batman” Comic Book Artist, recently suffered a stroke. As far as I have been able to tell he is doing OK, or is stable, I guess. I don’t have much info except that he is being crushed by medical bills. So, his family started a “You Caring” page to accept donations. They have collected around $51,000 so far but need much much more as his medical bill will probably be around $200,00 or so, if not more.

Anyways, here’s a LINK to the DONATE PAGE and please do what you can. norm’s a great guy and he should be important to all you Comic Book Collectors out there. Hey, I also know that Batman Fans are some of the best, most kind-hearted, people on the planet and many of you will step-up, so THANK YOU in advance!!

Whoops, also forgot to mention that even if you can’t donate, then at lease please PLEASE share this post in your social media (Facebook, twitter, etc…) so that other people can see it. Thanks again.

The Amazing Comic Book Graphic Art of Jerry Bennett! #Batman #Joker

I recently went to an awesome Comic Book Convention here where I live, in Oklahoma, where I got to see the wonderful artwork of an Artist named Jerry Bennett. He’s a very popular local artist and it was fun to see his art in-person. I mean, I have seen it many times online, but the photos just don’t do it justice.

Jerry does freelance work for an Indy Comic Book and Graphic Novel Publishing Company called ENIGMA ENDEAVORS. There, he teams-up with a Writer named Jackson Compton and they have created a line of books titled, NADIR’S ZENITH.

Nadir’s Zenith is a compelling Science Fiction-type story where you, the reader, get to follow the adventures of Captain John Nadir, Space Marshal of the Intergalactic Peace Corps (IPC)! Yes, Nadir’s Zenith is Space Opera 100 years in the making. 

Right now they are working on issue number 4 and the first three issues have done really well. Speaking of Issue number 4, they have started a KICKSTARTER page where you can donate and help them get this book completed, plus you can also receive some exclusive material.

You can purchase these books online in a Digital Format (for Kindle, Apple iPad, Smart Phones and more) at COMIXOLOGY and INDY PLANET. But I prefer actual printed paper books and you can get them at Indy Planet as well. Here’s a link for the REAL BOOKS.

OK, Jerry also sells Art Prints of his favorite TV/Comic/Movie characters. The 2 images at the very top of this post show some of his BATMAN and JOKER ones he has done. These prints measure 11″ X 17″ and are very high quality. He sells them for $16.00 each and that price includes shipping! The cool thing is that you can order them online, which is perfect for people who don’t live near here. For orders outside the USA you’ll need to contact him for a special price.

You can get these BATMAN and JOKER Art Prints by contacting him directly at his personal e-mail address: 


One last thing, if you are a Facebook member then please be sure to visit their Official NADIR’S ZENITH page and/or the ENIGMA ENDEAVORS page. Jerry Bennett is also on TWITTER.

Is it time to Pop! open the Jungle Book? And, um, something Robin Hood

Funko has released some official images of its upcoming Pop! figures from two classic Disney films. The Jungle Book‘s Mowgli, Shere Khan, and Kaa as well as Robin Hood‘s Robin Hood, Prince John, and Sir Hiss (no relation to King Hiss) are slated for release this month.

While I can’t say that I was a fan of either film as a kid, Prince John, Kaa, Shere Khan, and Sir Hiss (see gallery) are adorable. I’m somewhat less found of the titular Robin Hood, but he still looks pretty neat.

Expect to see these guys on shelves near you in the near future, if they aren’t there already. (Especially if you’ve already bought them. Then you’d just need to look over to see them on the shelves.)
