Behind the Bat: An Interview with Kevin Conroy

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

Batman: The Animated Series: Picks from the Pros...

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. Knowing that so many of our current Batman writers and artists were fans of the show, we thought it would be fun to reach out to a few of them to see if they could recommend a favorite episode.
