As a lifelong Batman fan its been a poignant year for me and no doubt many other bat fans.
I suppose the new Bat year started for me with the huge movie that was Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice. I loved its epic scale as the two Kings of DC slugged it out like caped titans. It was a real thrill. I know not everyone agreed.
Twelve months later I received a rather crusadingly good Easter gift from little Miss Moonbase, her man and Baby Base: a wonderful Bat Signal Projector pictured here taken out of its nifty box with classic graphics.
My next bat chapter came when just last Sunday little Miss Moonbase gave me this Waynetastic Father's Day card, again with a classic Bats pose showing off his six pack and bulging utility belt.
This obviously followed the very sad news of the original Batman's death, Adam West, beloved by bat fans world-wide.
It is to Adam and all his fans like me that this Baturday is dedicated.
Like the citizens of Gotham City, we shall shine our Moonbase bat-signal for one more day of Kapows, Kerrangs and Caped Crusading.
