Holy Reach-Around, Batman!

New York painter Mark Chamberlain is getting some guff from DC Comics over his series of "gay Batman" watercolors. The paintings were shown by art dealer Kathleen Cullen, and DC wants to confiscate the unsold paintings, not to mention get the invoices for the ones that were already sold (probably to track them down and take them back from the owners).

If you've ever seen the Adam West Batman TV series from the 70s, you are likely as surprised as we are that a few watercolor paintings could possibly be considered even gayer than that. Then again, maybe we're just being closed minded. In fact, we've just decided that wearing underpants on top of leggings, with a cape, mask and an underage same-sex companion is as hetero as it gets. Just ask Michael Jackson.
