Vintage Magazine Article:
"Starlog Yearbook"
Vol. 10, September 1992

This article from the '92 Starlog Yearbook focuses on the man behind the music- Danny Elfman. Give it a read to find out how Elfman was convinced to return to Gotham City for the caped crusader's second film outing, how Batman Returns differed from Batman musically, and the composer's thoughts on some of his other famous film scores.

Special Feature:
Warner Brothers Batman '89
Licensing Concept Art

In order to maintain a consistent look across different forms of merchandising, a company will often create art internally for licensees to use on their products. Today's post showcases many of the licensing concepts Warner explored for Batman. These images would have been used on things like T-shirts, notebooks, trading cards, and stickers.

A quick note about the watermarks- As you can see, I went a bit heavier with the watermarking on these images than I usually do here at the site. Unfortunately, the theft of exclusively shared images, removal of watermarks, and unauthorized re-posting that is occurring at places like the Batman Anthology Wiki has forced this. If the same thing happens with these images, it will mean less and less sharing here at the page. I urge you as fans to please be considerate of the deals in place that allow me to host these images here, and to take a stand against the places that ignore it. Stealing doesn't help any of us.
