THE 25th ANNIVERSARY OF BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the debut of animator Bruce Timm’s groundbreaking BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES! Since its debut in ’92, when Timm’s canny combination of multiple versions of the character’s comic incarnations took the animation, comic book and pop culture worlds by storm, the series has only grown in stature, influencing all superhero animation since, and respected as perhaps the greatest translation of not only Batman, but any comic book character, to any medium. Join comic book art historian and illustrator Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) for an overview of the “greatest hits” of the series!
