Since 1940, Batman's been haunting the streets of Gotham, busting perps in ways only he can manage, but his logo, well that's changed quite a bit over the years. From the classic oval-shaped Batman Returns, to the pointy, sharp-looking Dark Knight, complete with lethal ninja death stars, here's the evolution of the iconic bat.

You can buy massive limited edition prints of these beauties for £37 a pop, plus shipping. Although, it's a bit late to get em in time for Christmas I guess; maybe you could just print off the image with an IOU under the tree? [Calm the Ham via Design You Trust via io9]
