For many fans, Kevin Conroy has been the definitive voice of Batman for over two decades, and it’s not hard to see why. From the first episode of Batman: The Animated Series to the recent success of the Arkham games, Conroy has shown us all sides of the Dark Knight, diving deep within the soul of Bruce Wayne and revealing an unprecedented level of depth and emotion within the character.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read SUPERGIRL #28 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
You may have already seen Kara Zor-El as a new Red Lantern if you caught the flip-book GREEN LANTERN/RED LANTERNS #28 earlier this month, but what you wouldn’t have seen is how a red ring found Supergirl in the first place, or how it chose her to wield the red light. “Red Daughter of Krypton” starts here!

One of the many great things about Batman: The Animated Series is the influence it’s had on an entire generation of comic book creators, some of whom would later go on to work on Batman themselves. Knowing that so many of our current Batman writers and artists were fans of the show, we thought it would be fun to reach out to a few of them to see if they could recommend a favorite episode. Here are three must-see eps, as recommended by some fine folks who know a few things about the Dark Knight!
All this week on DCComics.com we've been celebrating one of the greatest shows in the history of television. No, not Breaking Bad, but we totally get that. Not The Wire either, although, again, good guess. No, we're talking about the Emmy Award-winning, insanely awesome, genre-defining Batman: The Animated Series, a.k.a. the series that set a benchmark for animated programming and that also introduced an entire generation of fans to the Dark Knight, serving as the defining interpretation of the character.
