Pow! Zowie! Braaak! It’s (Still) Batman!

As an addition to the Batman trailer, here is the American poster for the 1960’s re-release of the 1943 Batman and Robin serial, taken from Tony Nourmand and Graham Marsh’s book Science Fiction Poster Art published by Aurum.

Nourmand and Marsh have compiled a remarkable number of these poster books over the years, including the decade series of books running from the 1930s up to the 1990s, as well as Science Fiction Poster Art and Horror Poster Art. All are well worth a look.
