Vintage Magazine Article:
"Starburst" Issue #168
August 1992

Another Batman Returns article from Britain's Premier Science Fiction Magazine for you today! Things start off a little rocky with a negative take on the film from writer Michael Courtland (I of course disagree with his assessment, just as I did with his opinion of Batman '89). Once you plow through that, we get into the real reason to buy this issue... The "Batman Returns Role-Call" feature continues the in-depth look at the film started in issue #167. This time around, we git bits on Batman's weaponry, Penguin's Penguins, and interviews with some of the supporting cast! Enjoy!

Special Feature:
The Batman Returns Production Still Gallery
Part 6- "The Penguin"

Fellow fan Thorsten Lehmann and I recently acquired a rather large collection of fantastic imagery created during the filming of Batman '89 & Batman Returns. Much of this imagery consists of still photography created for publicizing the film. These images appeared in trade articles, merchandise like the Topps card set & movie souvenir magazine, and in video packages like the Warner Preview video. Some images from the collection you may have seen before (perhaps not with such clarity), while others appear to be unpublished up to this point. :)

Since there are a LARGE number of images, I thought it best to break them down into related sections. For this final installment, we finish off the film's tagline trio with some great behind-the-scenes shots of Penguin and his winged warriors. Enjoy!
