Always with an eye towards the artistic, tee, poster, and action figure-makers Mondo have a fresh Batman: The Animated Series book out.
Batman: The Animated Series is pretty easily one of the most celebrated superhero cartoons of all time. And honestly, you could probably take out “superhero”, and that above statement would still be true.
The 90s show has all but become the definitive take on DC’s Dark Knight, even taking the place of the actual comic book version for some fans. There are reasons for that of course, many of them. The animated series had incredible casting, shockingly grown-up writing, and some of the best art direction seen anywhere. Heck, it was so good it spawned an animated universe, complete with Superman, the Justice League, and more.
Now the masters of pop culture over at Mondo are celebrating the greatness of B:TAS with Batman: The Animated Series: Phantom City Creative. What’s the subtitle mean? Well…
Over the years, Mondo has received global recognition for their astonishing artisanal posters, and their creations for Batman: The Animated Series are no exception. The studio has partnered exclusively with the award-winning artist at Phantom City Creative, Inc., Justin Erickson, in order to bring this show to life in a striking and unparalleled way. Paul Dini, longtime writer and producer of the Animated Series (and co-creator of Harley Quinn), delivers a wonderful introduction. Filled with Erikson’s slick graphic design as well as beautifully rendered illustrations, this Batman: The Animated Series art book is a one-of-a-kind tribute to one of the greatest animated shows of all time.Insight Editions press release
