    Hopefully there will be a catwoman on stage to slink her way through the “Stray Cat Strut” cover.

    • Indeed! The Gotham City Rockers have a Catwoman. And 30-odd other characters, too. We’ve even got a logo for t-shirts to raise money for the Parade. Can you tell I’m a little excited?

        Sounds awesome. Don’t be discouraged by those who have never heard of rockabilly… they’re not only missing out on the concept, they’re missing out on an archetypal cool music genre.

        Got a batmobile for “Greased Lightning”?

        • Working on it. We’ve provoked two new bands to form for a Gothambilly show in October, hoping to rope off some parking spots and have a little motorshow to go with it. Not sure if we can pull that off, though (the Parking Nazis in Portsmouth are nasty), but we’ve got drive.

    Awesome stuff. It amuses me however that Gordon looks basically unchanged.

    The only thing that doesn’t quite work is that Bruce Wayne appears to be an auto mechanic, which doesn’t quite fit in with the ‘rich boy’ Batman backstory.
