Not much in the way of writing this week (might have some more hopefully Sunday, but I work all weekend), but Zul and the guys at Outland sent me the inks to Video/Radio/Star, so here! After this stage (maybe colors?) I’ll probably ease off on updates, but people seemed interested, so I figured I’d give another glimpse of what we’re putting together to pitch to companies.
The Batman that cares about the inmates is my favorite. He doesn’t put up with their shit, but he does try to reach out here and there and he’s as human as he can be to them.
When Harley was re-institutionalized, he got her that dress she wanted.
In the comics based on B:tAS, there was a time during Christmas that there was snow and it was Mr. Freeze’s fault, and he was making it snow because Christmas was his anniversary with Nora and she LOVED it when it snowed on Christmas, so Batman let him finish mourning before calmly taking him back to Arkham.
He never, ever gives up on Harvey possibly recovering.
Sure, Batman is going to throw punches and do what it takes to take these guys down when they’re hurting or threatening people. And he’s not going be a complete bleeding heart; he has to protect the innocent. He’s going to take them down and take them back to Arkham, but it doesn’t mean he’s incapable of being a bit human to the ones who deserve it.
One of my favorite episodes is called Lockup and it’s about a cruel worker at the Asylum who yells at the “inmates” and punishes them and pushes them around and restricts them and they are terrified and Batman stands up for them and Lockup says a great quote (I won’t ruin it) basically questioning why Batman does what he does the way that he does. Anyway, it’s a great episode of a great show.
