Julie promotes the BATMAN DVD-Set at Comic-Con July 24th!

Yes, citizens, "Batman" 1966 is coming to DVD-Blu Ray in Novemeber.

To whet your appetite, Julie, Adam and Burt will be at Comic-Con in San Diego to appear on a panel and discuss this...ZAP! POW! news.

The Bat Time is 6-7pm and the Bat Place is "Hall H" at Comic-Con.

New Icons of the Icon

Julie might be modest about the term "icon," as related to her personally, but lately, there's been a lot of iconography on the '66 Catwoman!

There are a half-dozen statuette/action figures on eBay, and a new, authorized big of Catwoman art from Ken Taylor. Some fans were wondering about this item (no Batman, no Robin, no other villain as yet...no hologram in the corner or on the back as authorized art or signed pictures often have...no neatly printed "licensed by Warners/DC Comics"..) but it IS another icon.

Icon means: "a religious work of art," and really, is there that much difference between a plastic statue of Jesus on the dashboard, and a dashing Catwoman-in-Action statue perched on the night stand? In essence, the goal is the same: to celebrate and draw comfort. Mr. Lennon got into trouble for saying The Beatles were bigger than Jesus, but at the time, young fans were indeed viewing the Fab Four as rock gods, and finding in the lyrics some useful advice on how to get along in this world and the importance of love.

So here we have Catwoman icons to put on the wall, stick on a shelf...reminders of fun, free spirit, and ideal beauty. Many love the Catwoman costume no matter who is in it, but the important thing is to fit into it, so this particular part of the icon is a totem for exercise. While Julie's proportions are special, most any woman can at least fit into the suit for Halloween if the Catwoman icon is on display...perhaps a poster on the fridge door!

The Ken Taylor poster, by the way, is 24x36 and as is typical with comic-con type collectibles, available in some "variants," and there's a limited edition signed (by Taylor) version.

THE BIG ISSUE in the UK: IS JULIE NEWMAR

Julie's on the cover of THE BIG ISSUE...

The British magazine asked Julie to write an article based on her standing room only lecture, "How to Be a Great Beauty," which she's performed in California to great acclaim.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, what do you do? Poke someone in the eye before you're introduced? No, maximize your gifts by accentuating the positive. Drop the negative clean out of your awareness. Why? It's boring! Let's remember that many who are born beautiful…often bore..."

And off she goes, with tips on poise, hairstyle, make-up, positive attitude, and much much more. The mag is so pleased they want MORE MORE MORE...from our purrfect combination of brains, beauty and humor!

$4600 for a JULIE NEWMAR Photo

The average 11x14 photo of a beautiful star...might go for $20 on eBay. If it's an original, and a superstar, maybe $50 or $100. But just recently the combination of JULIE NEWMAR photographed by PETER BASCH set a bidding frenzy that ended with a winning bid of $4,600.

Go ahead...type in Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Brigitte Bardot or any other icons, add "original photo," and see what happens. Not quite the "ka-ching" of this auction, that's for sure!

Want a closer look at the photo?
