Before the advent of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, mainstream media largely associated the Dark Knight with Adam West’s zany ‘60s portrayal, so it’s not that surprising to see these Steve Seeley illustrations depicting the Caped Crusader in bizarre situations. Of course Batman would be trying to surf a dear in the wild or taking a family portrait with a couple of dogs and a bear in the background; it just seems like something Batman would do.

But putting Batman aside, Steve Seeley gives this absurd animal interaction treatment to a myriad of other characters to produce a series that’s surprisingly engaging. It’s nearly impossible to take your eyes off the Japanese costumed hero standing dynamically while a bear’s hovering behind him or the masked avenger performing a yoga-like pose on top of a bear’s head.
