Dan Greenfield, a Reporter over at the always amazing 13th DIMENSION website, recently interviewed Chip Kidd about his obsession with collecting Batman toys and memorabilia. This “sickness” started at age 2 and has followed him his whole life.

Chip has actually written a few Batman-related books with some of them having a major focus on toy collecting, “Batman Collected” and “Bat-Manga: The Secret History of Batman in Japan”.  He also co-wrote a book on “BATMAN: The Animated Series” with Paul Dini which features a giant assortment of toy photos as well.

Dan and Chip talk extensively about the character and all the fun artifacts that have revolved around the Caped Crusader. The article is also loaded with a lot of wonderful photos that were shot at Chip’s NYC apartment (We didn’t have space to share them all here). Some of these toys are so extremely cool and rare that they will totally make you cry, ha! Please CLICK HERE to check ’em out! Also, thanks Dan for a wonderful interview, well done Sir!

Here’s a wacky-fun  post to share this amusing photo taken at the recent New World Comics’ SUPERHERO SCHOOL in Oklahoma City, OK. This is a bi-weekly event that occurs at a local comic book store where costumed Cosplayers teach little kids about superheroes. It’s a clever idea and the costumes are always extremely creative. The kids love it!

Anyways, shown here is our friend Kit Compton, a.k.a. Foxxikitten, dressed-up as the SHE-HULK and she is showing off her new most super-favorite book, BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN (DC Comics) written by Chip Kidd and illustrated by Dave Taylor!

Oh yeah, we should mention that our other friend, Ondry Dre Braggs (Marvel’s Iron Man War Machine) made a sneaky cameo appearance in this picture, ha ha!
