The Roundup: Lois Lane Gets a Scoop... And Standalone Comic

No matter the news, if it’s big and it’s breaking, you know that Lois Lane will have the scoop. But what about when Lois is the news? That’s certainly the case this week, as everyone’s favorite investigative reporter gets a special standalone comic devoted entirely to her.

For many fans, Kevin Conroy has been the definitive voice of Batman for over two decades, and it’s not hard to see why.

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. Not The Wire either, although, again, good guess. No, we're talking about the Emmy Award-winning, insanely awesome, genre-defining Batman: The Animated Series, a.k.a. the series that set a benchmark for animated programming and that also introduced an entire generation of fans to the Dark Knight, serving as the defining interpretation of the character.

Batman's Feature Length Phantasm

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. However, move down the age spectrum a bit and ask a younger Batman fan about the film and you may find that they haven’t even heard of it.
