Add It To My Want List: Batman - Mask of the Phantasm

How have I never bought this one? I'm a big fan of the movie, and even got the chance to take my son to see it on the big screen at the TIFF Lightbox a couple of years ago. I don't recall ever seeing this comic book on the racks but I was a poor undergrad student at the time so I may have passed on it for budgetary reasons. I've been buying everything touched by the great Mike Parobeck but somehow missed this one. I love his work on the Batman: The Animated Series comics so I have got to think that this one will be great, too. Now the trick is to keep my eyes open. Sometimes you can never find what you're actually looking for in those back issue bins. The search begins.

I don't think I ever realized there was a comic book adaptation of the movie. And speaking of "want lists," I think it's criminal that Mask of the Phantasm still has yet to be released on Blu-ray...especially when they've already gone to the trouble of releasing Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker and Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman!

I bought the VHS back in '93 and a digest sized issue came with it. I still have it.

It has a different cover than the one you show.

There is a painted cover as well, I think.
