Batman’s….Trunks

Now normally this site is purely dedicated to Military History and the like, but given how popular last year’s homage to Batman and history was, I’ve decided those of you who have a keen interest in all things Bat-related, deserve a treat!

The publishing house, Tor, has commissioned Mr. Jim Beard to write the following brief history of….you guessed it, Batman’s trunks! Yes Bat-fans, you heard it right the first time, Beard has gone throughout history and has returned to the reader with a chronological look at the Caped Crusader’s undies drawer down through the ages. From the very beginning Batman needed a loin covering, just iike Superman and Tarzan, the enemy of crime chose to pull on what were effectively black hot-pants….who likes short shorts??

As time progressed, Bats settled into a fetching blue number and went through a number of style changes also. But I won’t give too much away! Suffice to say scroll down and prepare to be horrified! Be sure to check this story out with the morning coffee, well worth a read! Though you may never look at the Batman quite the same again! 

Keep scrolling!

All there

All there

*cough, cough*, nice look Bruce….
