One of the many great things about Batman: The Animated Series is the influence it’s had on an entire generation of comic book creators, some of whom would later go on to work on Batman themselves.
Who’s that stopping by the DC office? Why, it’s none other than Paul Dini, and he’s just in time for Batman: An Animated Celebration! He’s here to discuss the new Batman: The Animated Series action figures, and he’s far from our only guest.
All this week on DCComics.com we've been celebrating one of the greatest shows in the history of television. No, not Breaking Bad, but we totally get that.

Ask a Batman fan of a certain age what their favorite Batman movie is and there’s a good chance their answer is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

While it’s not unusual for iterations of a long-beloved character like Batman to resonate most strongly with the generation they first appeared, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm seems to be a particularly unique case.
DC Collectibles has returned from Toy Fair, where their new line of action figures based on Batman: The Animated Series was a smashing success!

(In short, plenty of articulation and accessories!)

That of gangster Fish Mooney.
