From Youtube: “A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange.”

I’m not as enamored with Batman The Animated Series as some of my friends seem to be, but I think this is pretty cool.

Shawn Taylor over at Nerds of Color has an excerpt from his upcoming book. The excerpt is mainly about Storm, but there are two really great non-Storm portions.

This makes a lot of sense to me. Comic book fans are used to seeing things like Blue Beetle getting his brains shot out through his face, Captain America hitting someone in their face with his shield, or Wolverine snikting people all over the place, non comic book fans aren’t necessarily immune to this type of violent imagery. I’m glad they made the cuts needed because they opened the film to a much larger audience.
