Holy Collectible Close-Up, Batman!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and hopefully by now you have your plans in place. We know what we’re doing over here. Brunch at Mom’s favorite restaurant, followed by an afternoon at the pool.

Regardless of where you live in this fine country, we hope you’re prepared to spend some serious time in Gotham. As reported earlier today, Fox has officially given Gotham, their Batman prequel series, the green light, ensuring we’ll be treated to at least one season of the eagerly awaited show.
All month long, we’ve been talking to the creative team behind our brand new weekly Batman comic, Batman Eternal.

You’re not going to want to miss it, in part because you’ll be missing the contributions of writer Tim Seeley.
By now, most fans of Batman and exciting animation have seen the two era-spanning shorts produced by Bruce Timm and WB Animation in celebration of the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary.

Only, in staying true to the spirit of the shorts, we're keeping the interview brief. Three questions—one for each minute of animation!
