Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
This second volume contains the remaining 28 first-season episodes from the brilliantly stylized Emmy-winning animated series. Several episodes rank as series benchmarks, and they benefit from commentaries by producers Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski and Paul Dini, and writer Kevin Altieri. These include "Robin's Reckoning," a two-parter in which the Boy Wonder at last faces his parents' murderer; "Heart of Steel," another two-parter featuring a Marilyn Monroe-esque robot; "Almost Got 'Im," a villain's-night-out treat in which Batman's nemeses each recount how they almost defeated the Dark Knight (and it's got Harley Quinn and Catwoman besides!); and "Harley and Ivy," in which Harley and Poison Ivy team up to become Gotham City's "New Queens of Crime." Another gem here is "The Man Who Killed Batman," in which a Mob underling has seemingly achieved what Gotham's super villains could not -- "off the Bat" -- and the Joker, for one, is not amused. The Animated Series has been justly celebrated for its stunning animation, compelling stories, and smart writing. It's the little touches, such as Two-Face spiking his drink with Half & Half in "Almost Got 'Im," that elevate this series from mere after-school time-filler.
