Letterheads of Bob Kane, Batman's creator. (via Letterheady)
Really cool, wonder if Sergio Aragones’ stationary had little Groo-dudes on the borders, etc? I like to imagine that it did.
Anyone else watching Comic Book Men on AMC? I’m really pissed that I can no longer hate 100% “reality TV”!
Why the past tense? Aragones is still alive and active (though according to Mark Evanier he recently had to go to the hospital with back pain). In addition to Mad and Groo, he’s got a series called Sergio Aragones Funnies where he basically does whatever he wants for 20 pages a month (including gags, activity pages, and my favorite, personal stories). It’s one of my favorite books right now.
Past-tense because: stationary. I know it still exists, it just seems to exist the way coin-op payphones exist.
A smiling Batman? Well, I never.
David, I believe you mean “Batman creator’s BAT-letterheads.”
Now make them spin around!
Sadly if he was using these today he would probably get a C&D from Warner/DC for trademark violation….
No, unlike many comic creators Bob Kane had good lawyers right at the beginning.
Or at least by the time he renegotiated his contract by lying about his age.
Looks more like a range target.
Who do you go shooting with? The Penguin?
Nah. It’s surprisingly difficult to handle a .22 Long Parasol with chitinous claws.
Try walking in a pair of Alexander McQueens.
Just a pair? Wouldn’t a lobster need four?
Speak for yourself.
Nope. Umbrellas aren’t range-legal.
I think the one on the left was Jerry Robinson’s letterhead, Bob Kane just put his name on it.
Damn, you beat me to it.
yeah, I cringe when Bob Kane is listed as sole creator.
Let’s not forget about Bill Finger, either.
