Not the Mutants, not The Joker, not even the Man of Steel. Of course if he did, say because of a bum knee or bad back, Carrie Kelley would be waiting in the wings.

That makes them the perfect Dynamic Duo to grace this (ahem) Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Dynamic Duo Wallet, featuring artwork by Miller and Klaus Janson. Of course, it would be weird if the wallet featured anyone other than them ….

lego-social

Kids aren’t the only ones who enjoy LEGO, so why should they get all of the LEGO shirts?

That’s apparently the thinking of Japanese casual wear label Uniqlo, which has expanded its collection of licensed LEGO T-shirts to include designs for adults. (Well, for men; so far, there are no women’s tees in the collection. What’s up with that, Uniqlo?)
