Just finished writing an article for consideration in the upcoming Comic-Con souvenir book. I’m not attending, but I like being a part of it. This year, they’re celebrating one of my favorite cartoon series – Batman: The Animated Series. It took Batman: TAS for pop culture and Hollywood to realize that cartoons were a serious storytelling medium. It wasn’t enough for Scooby and the Gang to rip the mask off the villain by the end of the show. Batman: TAS showed us that when you rip the cover off, there’s still a world of pain and joyful anarchy underneath.
I love that show and it brought back a lot of happy memories to write “Dark Deco and Neo-Noir for Kids – Batman: The Animated Series at Twenty-Five.” I look forward with fingers crossed to see if it shows up in the Comic Con Souvenir Book – I’ll keep you posted! 😀
