Happy Baturday!

In celebration of International Bat Night and the 75th anniversary of Batman,
I've invited my Batman fanatic friend Jason Ghoulscout here for a Bat chat!
(Perhaps the first of many!)

Hi, my name's Jason....and I'm a Bataholic.
Holly wanted me to talk a little about myself, 
so I hope I don't put everyone asleep by my rambling. 
First I have to start off by saying I am a huge fan of Batman, 
and even though the official day of his 75th Anniversary has passed, 
I'm too much of a geek to not celebrate for the rest of the year...
so lucky you, it's show and tell day. lol.
I buy A LOT of batcrap, things like figures, deco, mugs, 
and of course, too many t-shirts.

Batmom and I. As you can see, it runs in the family.

One of my most recent purchases was an ebay listing of some goodies
they were making available at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con;
a swag bag with an image of Adam West and Burt Ward on it from the 1960's Batman TV show, the Jim Lee produced Batman cover souvenir book, Batman car decal,
one of the Ryan Sook designed paper bat masks (still need to buy the other three),
and what has to be one of my favorite items in the package,
a 75th Anniversary poster made up of Batman comic book covers over the years.

Hey! Do I hear snoring?
Most of the exposure to my favorite detective has been through TV and movies, 
so it was inevitable it would lead me to getting involved in some field of entertainment.
I ended up creating "The Velvet Coffin", which went through a few incarnations - 
everything from a webseries, to a movie, and now to a web-comic.
It's genre can be described as a "dark horror comedy".
Not exactly a superhero kind of story, but I'm sure we will have some bats show up. ;)
Moving in that particular direction of making it a web-comic,
lead me to creating a Facebook group called "The Bat-Lantern RV" 
where I post anything and everything comic book character related
(yea, usually about Batman), but it's also a place for other members to share
their interests or info on their favorite characters.
Because everyone should have a place to get their geek on.
So I invite you all to join me there, well here!
