Topic: The Return of the Bat-Man!
In 1939, exactly 80 years ago, the character of Batman was first introduced in Detective Comics issue #27. However, the character was very different from the incarnations we are most familiar with today. In 1939, Bat-Man had long, horn-like ears, drove a red jalopy, and wielded a gun!
The stories were more akin to other pulp detective stories of the era. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading them over the past few years - and have even grown to appreciate this, original version, more than any other Batman. I wish the stories had gone beyond those first 11 issues...
Thus, my Bat-Man series was born. 2 years in the making; I've just about finished the first episode, and am already underway with creating an entire seasons-worth of Bat-Man episodes. Heavily inspired by Film Noir and German Expressionism, this series will explore the character's roots - staying true to the character originally created by Bob Kane.
Here's a teaser: https://youtu.be/PVjRC_5X2F8
Expect the first episode by the end of the month!
