Amazing Killer Moth cosplay!

There are so many great cosplayers out there on the internet and many of them are dressing up as the Killer Moth!

First up is Julie Wilhelm who makes a very fetching Killer Moth, don't you think?

4th Wall designs created this amazing resin Killer Moth helmet. I have to have one for myself!!

Check out his great gallery of photos here

This Killer Moth was spotted at Philly Con! I love all the details including the moth-symbol on the belt!

Another Killer Moth cosplayer (Jelloconcoction) was seen at WizWorld Chicago!

A homemade Killer Moth suit found online

Another great Killer Moth cosplayer seen at Stan Lee's Comikaze!

My Killer Moth helmet is off to all of these great cosplayers and their amazing costuming skills! One day I will have my own Killer Moth costume!



Killer Moth finally coming to Heroclix!

It's been 15 years since Heroclix - the superhero miniatures game - came out and for almost that entire time I campaigned endlessly to get the classic Killer Moth on the character roster.

(My own custom Killer Moth Heroclix)

My pal, Heroclix lead designer Seth Johnson, told me that he had Killer Moth on the "set-list" many times but he was always cut at the last minute.

However... Wiz-Kids recently announced that the classic Killer Moth is a part of their upcoming Joker's Wild set!!

Keep your eyes peeled for these Heroclix minis this November!

Killer Moth Lego Sets now on sale!

It's been 8 years since the Killer Moth showed up in the Batman Lego videogame and we're finally getting a Killer Moth Lego figure!! But not one, but two sets!

Out Now! is the Scarecrow Harvest of Fear set (76054) that comes with Killer Moth, Blue Beetle, Scarecrow, Batman and a terrified farmer as well as a cool batcopter, tractor and evil thresher!

The Killer Moth figure is a perfect representation of the character from the video game (and the silver age comic books!) - especially cool is his recessed red eyes and his "second face" of Cameron Van Cleer getting thwarted by the caped crusader!

Also later this year is coming a Killer Moth vs Batman two pack that comes with some sort of bug-mobile and a new version of Killer Moth. Could this be the Killer Moth as seen in the upcoming Lego Batman movie? Who knows! I just know it's a great time to be a Killer Moth fan!

Rest In Peace Lew Sayre Schwartz

It is with a sad heart that we have to report that golden age Batman artist, Lew Sayre Schwartz, passed away on June 20th at the age of 84 years old.

Schwartz illustrated many of the caped crusader's adventures from 1948 - 1952, including the first appearances of the Killer Moth: Batman 63, 64 and Detective Comics 173.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. You can read more about Schwartz's contributions to comics here and here.

Killer Moth in Batman: Arkham Asylum!

My pal, Scott Collyer, sent me screen shots that show that Killer Moth shows up in the new Batman: Arkham Asylum video game!

I don't know if Killer is a character that you fight or not during the game, but his bio can be found in the bonus material.

Killer Moth customs on the interwebs!

Here's a nifty little lego Killer Moth. I think the detail work on the chest and legs are quite well done!

Another Lego Killer Moth! Clever idea to use stickers for the legging stripes!

One more nicely made Killer Moth Lego. You'd think Lego would get the hint and make a "real" Lego Killer Moth set! A Lego Killer Moth Mobile would be awesome!

And finally, we have Killer Moth made from a Mighty Muggs. I wonder if DC Direct will finally get the hint and make a Killer Moth figure. Georg? I'm waiting...

Killer Moth in "Cry for Justice" #1

James Robinson was one of my favorite writers before he wrote "Justice League: Cry For Justice" (He wrote "Starman" - one of my all time favorite comic series) but he's moved even further up in my book because he included the Killer Moth (wearing his silver age costume no less!) in the first issue!

OK, granted the Atom kicks his butt and tries to pop his brain and it isn't clear whether KM is a resurrected Drury Walker/Cameron Van Cleer or someone new wearing the costume but it's fantastic to see KM in his classic costume again! (I'm sure we have to thank the Mattel figure for that)

Monday, May 18, 2009


Who knew that almost one year ago when I asked James Tucker and company for the Killer Moth to appear in the brilliant Brave and the Bold cartoon, they already had me covered.

Check out these AWESOME screen shots from the upcoming episode featuring Killer Moth! (and Bat-Mite and a whole mess of other classic Batman villains and tons of "in jokes"!)

Killer Moth fan movie!!

"Gotham City is home to many notorious and outlandish super criminals, but there is only one as awesome, as outstanding, as evil as Killer Moth!"

I found this fan film online which features Batman vs. the Killer Moth! In this version, the Killer Moth lives with his little brother, has an overwhelming desire for Batman's mask and can be defeated by mothballs. OK, so the film is a pretty amateurish, but their heart's in the right place!

Watch it here

And you can see additional Killer Moth wackiness including his Vlog over at the creator's (MysteryGuy33) home page here.

Vote for Killer Moth heroclix!!

(Killer Moth heroclix mod by Scott Rogers)

As well as being the world's biggest Killer Moth fan, I am also a big fan of Wizkids' Heroclix game.

For years, I have been trying to convince their design teams to make a 'clix based on the silver age Killer Moth. According to their ex-lead designer, the Killer Moth was on their set lists twice only to be dropped both times.

Well, on Wizkids' blog, they're opening a contest for a fan-voted heroclix figure. I think to myself "this might be my only chance to get a Killer Moth made" - so, if you are a fan of heroclix and a fan of the Killer Moth (if you aren't, what are you doing on this blog??), then please help me out and take part in the democratic process and VOTE for the Killer Moth.

The Killer Moth thanks you.

More Lego Batman images!

Three more great images of the Killer Moth from the upcoming Lego Batman game have surfaced, showing off more of KM's gliding abilities. What? No cocoon gun? Regardless, I can't wait to play this game!

Killer Moth from around the Interwebs

My pal Dean over at his blog has been creating a series of very cool Batman characters done in the Simpson's art style. And guess which bug-themed baddie he recently made?

This jaunty Killer Moth comes from Michael Hutchinson's blog - drawn by Bill Lipski - whose art I'm not familiar with but he draws a nice Killer Moth!
