The Unofficial Batman: The Animated Interviews by W.R. Miller

The history of Gotham City’s mysterious crime fighter known as Batman is a long and varied one. The Caped Crusader or Dark Knight has been featured in virtually all media, from the early days of comic books to serials, television, and movies. These offerings range from the campy to the downright serious.

The ongoing popularity inevitably led to Batman becoming animated, with the character first appearing in his own cartoon series “The Adventures of Batman” and later joining the “Super Friends”. Similar to the Adam West/Burt Ward television program, these were intended as simple, light Saturday morning children’s fare.

However, in 1992, inspired by the Tim Burton “Batman,” a darker form emerged, both in content and style. The four-time Emmy Award-winning “Batman: The Animated Series” proved revolutionary in its approach, and its success both with viewers and critics spawned the DC Animated Universe. The darker-edged, hard-hitting storylines were no longer kiddie fodder but more adult-oriented, as episodes did not shy away from suspense and physical violence, including the graphic use of firearms. The Rogues Gallery of Villains, both old and new, lost their cartoonish charm and became more sinister and sophisticated, while Batman himself developed into a more complex character. Even Dick Grayson, aka Robin, The Boy Wonder, took on a more adult representation.

Author W.R. Miller has been involved in animation for two decades. In his five-volume series, he provides in-depth interviews with many of the creative talents involved in the production of Batman: The Animated Series. The result is an informative and entertaining look into a character who has evolved from page to screen and who has remained a cultural icon for generations.
