Batmobile Cutaways: The Movie Vehicles 1989-2012

Ever since his modern cinematic debut in 1989’s Batman, the Caped Crusader’s one constant companion has been – no, not Robin the Boy Wonder – his iconic Batmobile! Part assault vehicle, part pursuit and rescue transport, part mobile crime lab and part the screen’s coolest  looking car, the Batmobile has always been the most technologically advanced crime-fighting asset in Batman’s arsenal.

Like the Dark Knight himself, everybody has a favorite Batmobile and now all of the cars, from Tim Burton’s 1989 classic to the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy in 2012, have been brought together in one comprehensive, fully illustrated, 72-page volume from Eaglemoss Hero Collector, designers, manufacturers and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the many worlds of pop culture.

Written by Alan Cowsill, James Hill, and Richard Jackson – with original illustrations contributed by Ed Giddings and Mojo – Batmobile Cutaways: The Movie Vehicles 1989-2012 is a one-of-a-kind visual reference guide featuring original cutaway artwork approved by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, as well as lavish illustrations and photos highlighting every vehicle from Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997), Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

What’s more, the book comes packaged with a 1/43 scale die-cast metal replica of the iconic Anton Furst designed Batmobile featured in 1989’s Batman. Now you can discover what lies inside this and many other machines with extraordinary cutaway art. Take a deep look under the hoods and behind the controls as weapons systems and construction secrets are revealed.

They’ve made news lately as people have discovered the vast amount of DOS games now available. Two comic related are X-Men: Madness in Murderworld and Batman Returns.

BATMANCreated by Paragon Software Corporation X-Men: Madness in Murderworld features the X-Men and their mission in the Murderworld amusement arcade. Magneto and Arcade have kidnapped Professor X, and the loyal X-Men must rescue him. If the X-Men are to save the day, the player must combine action and adventuring skills.

Created by Sega, the Genesis title based on Batman Returns is a platform game in which the Dark Knight must traverse five action-filled levels on his way to confront the Penguin. Areas include the msdos_Batman_Returns_1993rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck’s department store, the Red Triangle Circus and the sewers. Besides run-and-jump action, there’s also a lot of combat in the game, as many of the Penguin’s henchmen stand in Batman’s way. He can knock them out with punches and kicks and a number of extra weapons stored in his utility belt. These include batarangs, which come in standard and self-seeking varieties, and smoke bombs that stun enemies for a while. In addition, Batman can shoot from his grappling gun and unleash a deadly swarm of bats towards enemies. All of these weapons have limited ammo, however, that must be collected. Other special tools Batman can use include the grappling hook to reach high places or swing across chasms, and his cape, which can be used to slow falls. Each of the five levels features several boss battles against Catwoman, the Penguin and others.

There’s 1000s of games available to play for free. And, when you’ve got through them all, the site also has classic comics and graphic novels for you to read too.
