Deviant Art is one of the best places to find really breath-taking fan art these days. One user, Von Toten has recently posted up a piece of art that showcases all the villains in The Batman Universe titled, "We're All Batsy in the Belfry". Pretty cool right? The image is pretty astounding and really seems to take some inspiration from The Batman television series, but remains a little more classical to the character designs. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Big thank you to Dustin, and everyone at TheBatmanUniverse.net for two tickets to see Batman: Live at my chosen venue, The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow on August the 3rd of this year, which was the opening night, for Batman: Live here in Glasgow.
Batman: Live is the retelling of the origin of Dick Grayson, from boyhood acrobat, to the boy wonder. A classic story that anyone who has seen the movie “Batman Forever” can tell you about, so it was certainly a mighty task…

As you may or may not know (I'm going to punt for the latter here as the series was publicized to no one), Batman: The Brave and the Bold returned to torment us (unless your my 6 year-old cousin then its the best thing ever) on TV. So here is my brief review of the first four episodes of the new season. I have tried to keep away from spoilers so these do not cover any real plot points, but I have chosen some points that I like or dislike.
Battle of the Superheroes!

"Ch-ch-ch-changes!" What do I think about the Batgirl from 'The Batman' series? In what areas does Stephanie need growth? What are my favorite Batgirl moments? I answer these questions and more on the latest episode. I also review Detective Comics #400 and #401, Batgirl #12, and Birds of Prey #3. Plus, I give my literary recommendation and share some personal news. Thanks to Steve J. Rogers for getting the Denny O'Neil tag at the beginning!

So another Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode has aired. Wait. Did it? No, you are not looking at your screen and thinking you missed it. Actually, if you live in the UK, a frequent internet user, or went to San Diego Comic Con, you probably have already saw the episode. But nonetheless, the episode officially airs tonight at 7:30 PM EST. Warner Bros. sent us over a clean version of the episode to review ahead of time so that we could get you hyped about it. We mentioned during the podcast after SDCC that the episode was…
