The Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts gallery is being told by DC comics that they have to remove homo-erotic nudes of Batman and Robin from their gallery.  Additionally, art website Artnet was also told to remove several images from the exhibit that were dispayed on their website.

as if Batman & Robin wasnt already homoerotic LOL  reminds me of Ace & Gary

btw,  The Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts gallery (via Artnet) still has the images on-line (as of 08/22/05) so you too can view the watercolors by Mark Chamberlain.

disturbing huh Stephen? I thought the images would have been removed seeing as how it seems there is a court order to do so but they are still on-line.

my favorite has to be the one where a mischievous Robin flirts with the camera as his ass playfully pokes out from under his cape….or possibly the one that allows us a rare portrait of mentor and student in a tender embrace….*sigh* a kiss that will live forever

LOL

Yeah, I figured if you really wanted to see them you could follow the links.  I guess Chuck was ‘just curious’. smile

Admittedly, I checked them out as well.  Very interesting stuff.  My first thought was “What will Maegan say?”

lmao chary….“just curious”  sheesh!  wink  guess i walked right into that one huh?
and yeah, i was wondering what Maegans thoughts would be on this as well…seeing as how the artist was very generous in depicting Batmans/Robins proportions I think she will be pleased.

I wonder what they’d think of the Super Dickery web site.

http://www.superdickery.com/seduction/1.html in particular.

(Of course, the point there is that Batman and Robin are *not* gay lovers, despite all the evidence in the comics to the contrary.

Well, the gay batman is weird, but I think the real point here is that a major corporation is trying to dictate what art can and can’t be.  True, making a profit from using someone else’s mental property should be illegal, and so should stealing credit, but art should be protected (so long as the artist isn’t making it for a profit).

But they are for sale, aren’t they?  I can also see a case against damaging an image and protecting copyrights.  And if DC doesn’t protect their copyrights, they run the risk of losing them.  I know that companies often seem hardheaded and authoritarian about them, but DC doesn’t want to lose control of their characters, which could happen if they don’t fight copyright infringement.
