The last time Batman appeared in a Warner Bros. animated production in the Bruce Timm “style,” it was in the Justice League Unlimited series, which ended in 2004.
Now, the big-eared, Timm-designed version of Batman is back in a new short for Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block, titled Batman Strange Days, which finds the Dark Knight taking on Hugo Strange and a mysterious, Solomon Grundy-like giant. It looks dark –virtually black and white or sepia — and features Batman firing a huge gun evocative of Gundam Wing‘s Twin Buster Rifle marked “tear gas.”
I’ve been biting my tongue about this one for a while! Go Bruce!
Favourite animators: Shinya Ohira (大平晋也)
- Strongly influenced by early Disney, Ohira is a living contradiction: a full animator in a country of limited animation. He is the most iconoclastic incarnation of the new realism in anime, creating a gritty, sensual realism as opposed to the clean and restrained realism of Omohide Poroporo or Jin-Roh.
- Ohira focuses on creating fluid and realistic movement full of superfluous action to the point of relegating shape and character design to jagged, wildly undulating lines. (anipages)

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how diverse all the female body types are?
Up until recently it seemed like there was just a stock body shape for shows, and now I’m seeing so many different ones and it makes me happy. It’s just really lovely.
Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors both created by pen ward. Natasha Allegri is the creator of bee and puppycat, Rebecca Sugar is the creator of Steven Universe. Both have worked on Adventure Time as well.
10 times Billy Kaplan was a sarcastic little shit (alternatively, 10 times Billy Kaplan couldn’t keep his commentary to himself)
