The concept art from the 1966 "Batman" series was absolutely beautiful.
There's a darker vibe to these preproduction paintings. The bold style
of Batman is part of its enduring appeal. Splashes of bright colors and
surreal, dollhouse-like sets amped up the campiness. The pioneering
1966 superhero series is pure eye candy, if not outright museum-worthy
pop art. It's no wonder Andy Warhol was a major fan, who even made
his own homage film.
