Fans got to hear behind-the-scenes secrets about the influential show Batman: The Animated Series first-hand from Bruce Timm and Kevin Conroy. Plus Conroy also discussed how he continues to bring the legend of Batman to life in the blockbuster game Batman: Arkham Knight. Timm shed some light on his stunning new animated short Batman: Strange Days, created specifically for the Caped Crusader’s 75th anniversary.
