If you are looking for Batman Checks look no further as I have found the perfect place to get them at a great price.
Read on to see how I solved the high costs of personalized bank checks and how easy it is to get your checks with images of the Caped Crusader fast, safe and cheap…
When it’s time once again to order personalized checks don’t waste your hard-earned money reordering checks from your bank. They are typically very expensive as opposed to ordering checks online and most of the time they are limited to the plain old green, yellow or blue checks.
When I buy personalized checks I always get them from Checks Unlimited because they’ve been in business since 1986 and have super prices and a super selection of check designs covering just about every theme you can think of.
From sports teams to your favorite cartoon characters and everything in between Checks Unlimited has a cheap designer check that you will love.
A couple of weeks ago I had to order checks again and it was so fast and easy with Checks Unlimited because they save my bank account info so I don’t have to try and read those funny account and routing numbers on my checks.
My personalized checks arrived a few days later in an unmarked envelope made of plastic so nobody would ever know there were bank checks inside and they were well protected from dirt and rain. As usual, they were perfect and I also got some free address labels with my order!
I have used Checks Unlimited for many years and have never had any problems with them and highly recommend them when it comes time to reorder bank checks. Yes, there are other places you could order Batman checks from but for my money Checks Unlimited is the best.
Batman’s First Appearance
Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in May 1939 and has been popular ever since.
Created by writer Bill Finger and artist Bob Kane he was originally referred to as The Bat-Man and is also known as The Batman, The World’s greatest Detective, The Dark Knight and of course The Caped Crusader.
Batman’s secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a rich playboy that witnessed the murder of his parents as a child and took an oath to seek revenge.
He trained himself as a crime fighter and is known for his physical prowess when he wears the bat-themed costume he designed.
Living in Gotham City he fights crime with assistance from his ward Robin and butler Alfred Pennyworth who has been with Wayne since childhood.
Occasionally Batgirl will assist the Dynamic Duo and Police Commissioner Jim Gordon is always on-hand to offer assistance.
What makes Batman unique from other superheroes is the fact that he does not have any special powers. He relies on his keen mind, detective skills, physical strength, technology and conviction to fight crime.
Batman gained popularity very quickly and got his own comic in 1940 and he has been ranked second in two lists of the greatest comic book heroes of all time.
The First Batman Story
The first Batman story, “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate,” was published in Detective Comics #27. Finger said, “Batman was originally written in the style of the pulps,” and this influence was evident with Batman showing little remorse over killing or maiming criminals. Batman proved a hit character, and he received his own solo title in 1940, while continuing to star in Detective Comics. By that time, National was the top-selling and most influential publisher in the industry; Batman and the company’s other major hero, Superman, were the cornerstones of the company’s success. The two characters were featured side-by-side as the stars of World’s Finest Comics, which was originally titled World’s Best Comics when it debuted in fall 1940. Creators including Jerry Robinson and Dick Sprang also worked on the strips during this period.
Over the course of the first few Batman strips elements were added to the character and the artistic depiction of Batman evolved. Kane noted that within six issues he drew the character’s jawline more pronounced, and lengthened the ears on the costume. “About a year later he was almost the full figure, my mature Batman,” Kane said. Batman’s characteristic utility belt was introduced in Detective Comics #29 (July 1939), followed by the boomerang-like batarang and the first bat-themed vehicle, the Batplane, in #31 (September 1939). The character’s origin was revealed in #33 (November 1939), unfolding in a two-page story that establishes the brooding persona of Batman, a character driven by the death of his parents. Written by Finger, it depicts a young Bruce Wayne witnessing his parents’ murder at the hands of a mugger. Days later, at their grave, the child vows that “by the spirits of my parents [I will] avenge their deaths by spending the rest of my life warring on all criminals.”
The early, pulp-inflected portrayal of Batman started to soften in Detective Comics #38 (April 1940) with the introduction of Robin, Batman’s kid sidekick. Robin was introduced, based on Finger’s suggestion Batman needed a “Watson” with whom Batman could talk. Sales nearly doubled, despite Kane’s preference for a solo Batman, and it sparked a proliferation of “kid sidekicks.” The first issue of the solo spin-off series Batman was notable not only for introducing two of his most persistent antagonists, the Joker and Catwoman, but for a story in which Batman shoots some monstrous giants to death. That story prompted editor Whitney Ellsworth to decree that the character could no longer kill or use a gun.
By 1942, the writers and artists behind the Batman comics had established most of the basic elements of the Batman mythos. In the years following World War II, DC Comics “adopted a postwar editorial direction that increasingly de-emphasized social commentary in favor of lighthearted juvenile fantasy.” The impact of this editorial approach was evident in Batman comics of the postwar period; removed from the “bleak and menacing world” of the strips of the early 1940s, Batman was instead portrayed as a respectable citizen and paternal figure that inhabited a “bright and colorful” environment.

Some Handy Batman Links
The Joker, an insane arch-criminal, is Batman’s greatest enemy, on a diabolical quest to drive all of society as cacklingly mad–as laughingly insane–as he himself is; unfortunately for these evil plans of the Joker’s, however, Batman repeatedly refuses to acknowledge any sense of humor within himself and sees himself as a guardian of not only logic and reason, but also sanity and seriousness.
