Below is a print that imitates the stained glass style while celebrating Batman and some of his supporting characters. I think this print is remarkable and all you have to do is tape this up to your window, and magic! You have instant stained glass. This print also brings up another question; should there be a church that worships the religion of "The Batman"? Would you practice that religion? Let us know what you think. You can purchase the print over at Etsy.

Bleeding Cool is reporting that they have heard from multiple sources that Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns is set to become an animated film in the DC Universe.
We have heard these rumors before, but nothing has ever materialized in the form of an actual film. Although with Miller's Batman: Year One set to release later this year, it may be the time.
Bleeding Cool says that The Dark Knight Returns is already in the early stages of production, with a number of creators who have worked on various animated versions of Batman in the past.
If this happens, we…

DC Showcase presents Superman/Shazam! Wait, isn't DC Showcase a comic? Well it was, and now it is a series for animated shorts from the DC Universe. The idea behind these shorts is to give a sort of overview of a lesser-known character in the DC Universe. It gives characters that would otherwise not get individual screen time a chance to shine. The first short that was released was The Spectre on the…

If you ask any Bat-fan about Batman The Animated Series, they will most likely have nothing but praise for it. Many claim it is the greatest Batman TV show ever, and is unsurpassed by anything that came before or after it. The show premiered in 1992, and it was certainly something new. The show was much darker and more mature than any previous superhero cartoon. The series showed was large amounts of violence, real firearms used, blood shown on screen and many…

Batman: Under the Red Hood is the next film in the series of DC animated films released by Warner Bros. It marks the first time Batman has a solo film that isn't related to another film project. I don't think fans will be disappointed by this film at all. I was pleasantly surprised by the film as I immediately try not to have high expectations for them.
When Batman: Under the Red Hood was first announced, I had to instantly go back and read…
