The Joker is back! At the end of last month’s issue, Jason had found the unconscious body of Isabel, GCPD was about to break down the door and the Joker was on the TV screen letting Jason know just how screwed he was.
The story continues from there in issue #15. Jason “deals” with the police, led by Bullock and leaves Isabel in their caring arms. He is fleeing to the Batcave to warn the rest of the family when he is gassed by the Joker. We get…

PAX Prime was this weekend and NetherRealm was in attendance promoting Injustice: Gods Among Us. There was a number of outlets that posted videos from the event, but IGN seemed to have the most diversity when it came to the characters. Hector Sanchez is talking through the game play. He is a producer at NetherRealm. You can see a lot more of the details of Harley, Nightwing and the Batcave arena in the videos below.

We have reached the "epic" conclusion to the "Court of the Owls series in the issue of Batman #11by Scott Snyder that was released just recently. With it, we are presented with some equally epic artwork by Greg Capullo.
As with all things connected with this "Iconic" series I'll examine the drawings associated with Batman and see what imagery, symbolism, or metaphor they might represent. I find the most striking image to issue #11 is the cover itself. The pencils were by Capullo with inks by Jonathan Glapion and colors…

Warner Bros. has updated the official site for The Dark Knight Rises again with the addition of the film's production notes. Forty-nine pages lay out the vents of the preparation of filming. Some of the highlights mentioned in the documents are as follows:
On the Batcave:
With Wayne Manor—and therefore the original Batcave—destroyed in the first film, Bruce Wayne had temporarily moved his base of operations to the Bat-Bunker. However, the mansion was rebuilt with the inclusion of a new…

Episode 05: Pretty Poison
Written By: Tom Ruegger
Directed By: Boyd Kirkland
Original Air Date: 09/14/92
Poison Ivy holds the title of being the first female villain to appear in Batman: The Animated Series, and she makes her debut in the fifth episode of the series titled, "Pretty Poison." Poison Ivy has never really been one of my favorite Batman villains, nor has she been one that I hate. She falls somewhere in the middle between the great Batman villains, and the…

Episode 04: The Last Laugh
Written by: Carl Swenson
Directed by: Kevin Altieri
Original Air Date: 09/22/92
After what was in my opinion a lackluster way to introduce an iconic character like the Joker in the episode “Christmas With The Joker", he actually makes his second appearance in "Batman: The Animated Series" rather quickly, in the fourth episode titled “The Last Laugh.” To me, this is a much stronger episode than “Christmas With The Joker.” It is an episode that has a lot of action,…
