Memories of the fantastic movies, TV shows, books and comics of my youth. Lots of clippings from my scrapbooks and articles from my magazine collection, as well as some vintage advertisements just for fun!

1989 Family Channel Batman ad
(Click on image to view larger.)
This full-page ad, published in a fall 1989 cable trade magazine, is a very nice rendition of Adam West's campy Caped Crusader.
Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
