"The Real Batman" Is back...and he's BIGGER!

So, if you like larger things that get shot at by my amazing shrink ray and were lucky enough to attend the APE expo in San Francisco last november, you may have already blessed your wall with a tiny version of my portrait of "The Real Batman" (shown above).
However, now, because of popular demand, we shot that mutherfather with a growth bullet and its all back to normal size, and ready to be unleashed on the world of fine art prints.

Zerofriends & Alex Pardee are proud to announce the release of Alex Pardee's print, inspired by the little-known truth about Batman's origin (which you can read about below).

Here is my little-known recount of the mythical batman:
"Not many people know this, but BATMAN (yah, your favorite masked detective) was based off of an ancient mythical cult icon whose story was basically about a bat hunter who, in a fit of symbiotic revenge rage, captured the bat that killed his wife and, since he couldnt live without his wife, he wanted to show the bat what it was like to depend on someone else for life and love. So the hunter shoved the Bat onto his head like a mask and forced the bat to remain a part of him. Shortly after, the tables turned and the hunter's foolish attempt at revenge backfired when he suffocated and died. The bat then took over the hunter's body and used his new found appendages and abilities to lead warriors to kill weak people because it was fun. True story."
