Marc Alan Fishman’s Top 10 Batman Cartoons of All Time*

19 March 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

As we near the debut of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Sepia Tones my mind races towards those pure gems of the Dark Knight that already exist in the ether of Animatia. Animatia is, of course, the fictitious country where all cartoons come from. Paul Dini is the dictator there – as he should be – and he rules with a dynamically drawn fist. And here, on this wonderful island, sit the tomes that built a generation of Bat-fans. Some (me) would say these tomes were truly the best generation of adaptations and explorations of Batman. I’d like to pontificate, ruminate, and extrapolate to you those episodes of Batman: The Animated Series (and The New Batman Adventures) that truly defined a cartoon legacy.

1 and 2. Two-Face (Parts 1 and 2)

Of all the designs Bruce Timm would bring to light for the Dark Night, it was Two-Face who took the prize in my mind for the most striking. »

National Geographic Channel plans to transform its “Explorer” franchise into a weekly series that blends magazine and talk show elements, hosted by British journalist Richard Bacon.

The ambitious slate of programming for Nat Geo Channel and Nat Geo Wild underscores the resources available to Nat Geo following 21st Century Fox’s $725 million infusion into the venture after the restructuring last September of its joint venture with the National Geographic Society.

“By harnessing an unparalleled portfolio of media assets through National Geographic Partners, we’re going to offer true 360-degree experiences, extending our storytelling for both viewers and advertisers across an unrivaled number of platforms,” said National Geographic Global Networks CEO Courteney Monroe.

The new-model “Explorer” is described as a weekly “docu-talk” series that will feature magazine-style field reporting, »
