Hi Bob, Gary and Cory,

How about doing a bi-monthly or monthly fan-based comic strip called 'Bat Toon'? You'll need someone to do the illustrations and perhaps all of us can contribute story ideas from time to time.

This is an idea I had sometime back. I'm not sure if its workable in the long-run but it will definitely be a great addition to the site. What do you guys think?

As far as I know I'm pretty much the only one of us that regularly checks the forums here (although I plan to work on getting more people on here this weekend), and I am totally for it! I can only speak for me as far as the team is concerned, but I dunno if I could illustrate it very well lol. But yeah, if we could find an interested party for the drawing it wouldn't be too hard. And it'd make a great addition to the GKO Chronicles!

I just had a GREAT IDEA; we could do it like Twisted Toyfare Theatre, or the "I'm a Marvel and I'm a DC" shorts in comic strip form. If you don't know what I'm talking about, they basically use action figures to do a comedic comic strip. Of course, ours would largely feature Batman, but we could have side-characters (based upon what action figures we could get our hands on). And really, we don't even need the figures; we could just use screen-caps and pictures of the characters and put speech bubbles around them. I really think we could make this work!

This is a fantastic idea. I was toying with the idea of posting the 1940 original strips each day, but if we had some specific to the site that would be great. Just a three to four panel strip each week. I wouldn't mind helping with that as well.

We could attack this two ways. We could either post on the site asking for a budding artist to step forward or like Gary said, do a twisted toyfare type strip.

If we did a drawn comic I wouldn't mind that being a more serious spin, but the twisted toyfare photo's could be the comical one?

Well, I don't mind having something humorous and funny. Something that even kids can enjoy. I think we have enough of serious stuff in all the Batman titles already.

Now that I've seen your scripts for the strip, I'm happy to go with the funny. They are brilliant... I'm going to post for an artist some time today.

We'll give Gary's idea of using the action figures a go. At the meantime, there's no harm in trying to look for an artist as well. What do you guys think?

Sounds good to me. All I have to do is get some action figures, if I can.
