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.
LIGHT MAKES RIGHT DEPT.
THIS JEST IN DEPT.
DC Collectibles has returned from Toy Fair, where their new line of action figures based on Batman: The Animated Series was a smashing success! While the figures won't be in stores until November, the Collectibles crew provided us with an in-depth look at the figures and what you can expect from them. (In short, plenty of articulation and accessories!)
Ask a Batman fan of a certain age what their favorite Batman movie is and there’s a good chance their answer is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. However, move down the age spectrum a bit and ask a younger Batman fan about the film and you may find that they haven’t even heard of it. While it’s not unusual for iterations of a long-beloved character like Batman to resonate most strongly with the generation they first appeared, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm seems to be a particularly unique case.
Welcome to Gothtopia! Die happy!
Meet the heroes of Gothtopia: Bluebelle, Eagle, Artemis and Warbler. Together, they form the Wings of Truth! Nothing makes a community happier than an acrobatic team tumbling through the air in a fun-filled children’s charity circus. But is everything really as clean, neat and tidy as it appears?
And what happens when Ra’s al Ghul gives Warbler, aka Black Canary, temporary immunity and makes her an offer she can’t refuse?
Gotham, the upcoming new Fox drama set early in the life of James Gordon and the young Bruce Wayne, has cast Matrix Reloaded and Madagascar star Jada Pinkett Smith in a surprising role.
That of gangster Fish Mooney.
A collection like no other!
