I've been getting into the p0ulp heroes lately, reading some of The Spider books and just recently got the Black Bat Omnibus for my Kindle. I decided to make three heads for this figure, an unmasked version, the original complete face mask, and the cowl, which became his more famous look. I used the Owl for the base, Bronze Tiger lower legs, and Starman forearms, Yellow Lantern Batman cape.

Awesome..
But one question.
How do you prevent the cape from being sticky

Never had a problem with it, but I'll tell you make sure you aren't using enamel paint of soft plastic, it will never dry and will stay tacky, maybe that's what you experienced?

He's one of the old pulp heroes, similar to The Shadow, The Spider, The Phantom, etc... Honestly, I just discovered him myself, and got the books for my Kindle, but haven't read them yet. He came out around the same time as Batman, there was a lawsuit actually, but it was settled out of court.

From wikipedia:

In the first issue, DA Tony Quinn is blinded by acid and believes his career is over until Carol Baldwin arrives. She tells him that her father is a small town policeman who is dying from a gangster's bullet and that a surgeon is willing to perform an operation to graft his corneas onto Tony Quinn's eyes so that he can see again. The operation is done in secret and when the bandages are removed, Quinn finds that he can not only see normally but can even see perfectly in darkness too. While blind, Quinn had developed the necessary skills of the blind; sharper hearing, more sensitive touch, a better sense of smell, etc.

From that we see he definitely had an influence on the creation of both Daredevil and Two-Face.
