COMIC WAR ON 'SUPER QUEEROES' By C.J. SULLIVAN
NYPost, Sat Aug 20, 6:00 AM ET

Holy Homophobia, Batman.

A Manhattan art gallery was threatened with legal action if it didn't take down a display of some risqu watercolor paintings of Batman and Robin in several — er — compromising positions.

DC Comics has asked the Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts gallery on West 26th Street to cease and desist from showcasing artist Mark Chamberlain's work of the Dynamic Duo in flagrante.

The comic company has also demanded that an art Web site — Artnet — remove Chamberlain's portraits of the duo's dirty doings — some of which have found buyers, with a starting price of $200.

The Caped Crusader is shown in one painting entitled "Pin Up" without his bat shirt, lounging like a gay-porn magazine model. Another, "Robin's Baby Pictures," has the Boy Wonder lying on his stomach baring his buttocks. An untitled portrait has Batman and Robin sharing a passionate tongue kiss.

"DC Comics wants me to hand over all unsold work and the invoices for the sold work," Cullen told Artnet News. There was no answer at her gallery yesterday.

DC Comics has also demanded they remove Chamberlain's work depicting the stripped-down superheroes.

There was no answer at DC Comics yesterday.

Chamberlain, whose work was still displayed on the Artnet site yesterday, did not immediately return a call for comment.

Sounds more like nambla art to me. Isn't robin a teenager in the comics?

Might actually be one of the actual artists.

DC made a big effort to appear "Friendly to alternative lifestyles" by placing gays in prominant positions, and I know that most of the Batoffice is gay as a result.

Good. Ya cant steal other peoples property. Period. An artist should know this.

That reminds me of SNL's Ambiguously Gay Duo. Although they're not being so ambiguous in those pictures.

Shit like that is why people hate gays...taking widely known characters and then superimposing gay attributes upon them makes people angry. Its insulting, its suggestive, and its that kind of thinking that get gays labeled as they are. Being gay isnt the problem....flaunting the fact as though it were a badge of honor IS the problem.

Im not proud that I am straight....its like saying "I am proud that I woke up this morning"...its not like it was an accomplishment. People like this person showing this 'art' are interested in shock value only. Their 'art' isnt capable of immediately impacting or captivating onlookers, so they make it absurd (half naked pictures of cartoon superheros? WTF is wrong with people)

What makes this whole thing worse is, people like me will get called closed minded for not wanting to have that filth put on display, yet the agenda of the people behind it go unexamined.

People have no damn shame anymore.

It's not homosexuals, particularly. Turn on the Disney Channel some time, and take a look at what they're trying to normalize for pre-adolescent heterosexual children. It disgusts me, but apparently I'm the only person who notices it.

It's also the toy companies.

The 'Bratz' toys are done up like whores.

I refuse to let my daughter play with that kind of crap.

I am a Bible believing Christian.

And I don't hate gay people.

I don't agree with the lifestyle, but I bear no personal animosity against anyone who practices it.

Along those same lines, I was going to post this last week in someone's thread as a joke.*

The funny thing about all this... put aside the dynamic duo for a moment. The artist just plain sucks. He's trying to compensate for his lack of ability with contraversial subject matter.

It seems like all artists do this these days. Compare today's art to the Roman and Greek sculptures that were crafted thousands of years ago.

Pretty much.

Sadly though, there is no such thing as bad press.

I'm guessing that wouldn't be a big problem for Mr. Chamberlain.

Mmmmmmm.... weren't Batman and Robin ALWAYS gay?

Think about it:a mid 30s, wealthy, never married, man who wears tights and a fake muscle suit, living in an undereground health spa with a teen age run away in shorts and a mask?

Gay, very gay.
