Thank You!

When I first started this blog, I did it for the sole and selfish purpose of collecting all of the cool retrofuturistic and atom punk things I could find on the internet. I never thought I’d get a single person visiting this site, let alone subscribers. However, after running this blog for the better part of two and a half years I have had a slew of both unique visitors and regular subscribers alike visiting this page everyday. Needless to say, its a great feeling knowing that there are many, many more people out there who love the Atomic Age as much as I do and I never would have known you all had I never started this blog.

So, after much deliberation, a few life-changing events and quite a few cocktails I have decided to stop this blog for the time being and instead move on to something more manageable on tumblr. I hope that you’ll still check out the new Mass Panic, which is now Tomorrow Calling! (tomorrowcalling.tumblr.com) and if you are a tumblr user, follow me and I will do the same. Which leads to another reason why I’m moving to tumblr, there is much more opportunity for interactivity and the sharing of ideas, which I think is the best way to spread the word of atom punk and all things retrofuturistic. So, at the risk of sounding like a band past its prime, Mass Panic Atomic will be going on indefinite hiatus for a while, but I’ll still be posting, hopefully more than once a day.

Atomic Batman.

With the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises I thought it would be interesting to take a look at all of the hits and, mostly, misses of bringing him to the movie screen from the Atomic Age.

The 1943 serial The Batman:

The 1949 serial Batman and Robin:

The 1966 movie (and the TV show) Batman:

and, just for fun:

Retrofuturism in Japan.

I’ve posted some of these myself in the past, but over at Dark Roasted Blend they have a great (and massive) collection of retrofuturistic art from the fifties and sixties.

I’m beginning to realize that this blog would be better off as a tumblr…
