Little to add to what Arc said about Gotham Knight.  The backgrounds were absolutely gorgeous, and each artist had a unique depiction of Gotham.

And yes, Working Through the Pain is definitely the best segment.

I still prefer New Frontier, but this wasn't bad at all.

Nrama interview with Timm.  Most notable is his pining for TV.  (And he says on the Wonder Woman first look that he's always felt that the DCAU seemed incomplete with a Batman toon and a Superman toon but no Wonder Woman solo series...hmmmm.)

The Joker's Asylum mini just launched it's first issue, featuring The Penguin. The premise for the series has the Joker telling tales about his various fellow rogues from within Arkham, and if this first issue is any indication, this is really one to watch.  The writing is superb, but it's the art that really steals the show here. The penguin is rendered variously as the downtrodden nerd, the gentleman criminal, and the genuinely monstrous killer he's been portrayed as over the years, and each seems to fit perfectly as part of the whole. Highly recommending this one.

The next issue is Poison Ivy, and I can't wait.

A sticker on the Gotham Knight DVD (at Wal Mart) claimed it was the "First PG-13 Animated Batman Movie::(:

Lastly, NY IMAX tickets scalping for more than concert tickets. :profit:

Q&A: What it takes to be the Batman.  A professor of kinesiology and neuroscience at the University of Victoria in British Columbia analyzes what it'd take to become and maintain being Batman.  You can tell the guy loves Batman when he starts describing the premise of Batman Beyond.

... Coming in September. ::(:

It's been in development longer than the Indiana Jones cash-in, so I'm expecting the highest quality of cashing-in from this one!

People are already coming up with their wishlists for villains in sequels.  The LA Times has a list that's pretty good (though its omission of Clayface is absolutely criminal).  Ventriloquist could be tons of fun, and I could see Tennant as Riddler.

How about a Knightfall movie arc, with a Bane that doesn't totally suck?


(We could edit out the entire 'I am CRAAAAZZYYY mecha-batman' part.)

I'd honestly love to see Robin Williams as the Ventriloquist.  The One Hour Photo broken down creepy Robin Williams, specifically.

I just saw it.

Movie of the year, and I thought Wall-E was utterly fantastic.
