An Interview with the Former Weekly World News Editor Who Created Bat Boy


It looks like it's made of clippings of an adult in a costume, plus animal parts and a baby head. Am I right?

Dick Kulpa:The image is all baby.
We enlarged the eyes and did wonders in these computer programs. Even then, in 1992, there were no add-ons. I worked in concert with the retouch department and designed this character. In this specific case, it was absolute and they followed my detailed instructions to the letter. So that’s where Bat Boy was born, but it wasn’t called Bat Boy originally.
