Ever since Batman:The Animated Series first aired, I've always wondered how they did their drawings and what inspired them to draw Batman or Joker like they did. This book gives you all the details with VERY nice pictures and storyboard pictures of some episode parts. This book has it all, every single villan and hero from the series is in this book. From information, to crazy prototype drawings. Also it includes info about The new Batman/Superman adventures and how come they changed how everyone looked. The 2 Batman movies Subzero and Mask of the Phantasm are in there too! Why they chose their story and other interesting stuff. This is definitely a must buy for fans of the show and the Dark Knight
