MAD's 'Goodnight Batcave' wards off all your bad dreams (and criminals)

MAD's latest parody book shows us that even Batman needs to sleep -- at some point.

The comedy mag has put together a "Goodnight Moon" parody book, titled "Goodnight Batman," that follows Batman's rounding up of criminals -- Joker, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze and more villains -- before he (and you) goes to bed.

Releasing this fall for $14.99 USD, the book comes from MAD editor Dave Croatto and illustrator Tom Richmond, and offers a light-hearted take on Batman's pre-bed routine, for both kids and adults alike. Take a look at a couple pages from the book below:


The mashup of Batman and MAD shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since DC Comics is the parent company of the comedy mag. MAD artists previously offered variants for several DC titles that saw Alfred E. Newman team-up with -- and replace -- heroes like Batman, the Flash and Green Arrow.

Batman even homaged "Goodnight Moon" once before in the comics. In Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert's "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader" Part 2, the issue capped off with a recreation of the book to close out the saga of the Dark Knight.

"Goodnight Batman" hits stands on November 2.
