Robin Storyboard Sequence From ‘Batman '89’ Revealed By Mark Hamill

Image
Article by Steve J. RayMark Hamill, legendary voice of the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and Luke Skywalker from the iconic Star Wars movies, has shared an unseen treasure from the archives on his Twitter feed; a Robin storyboard sequence from Batman ’89. It’s been rumored for many years that Robin was originally intended to appear in Tim Burton’s groundbreaking film, with both Will Smith and Taye Diggs in the running to play Dick Grayson. Hamill’s post shares an animated storyboard sequence featuring the Teen Wonder. This gem of a video features Kevin Conroy as Batman, Hamill as the Joker (of course) and Jason Hillhouse as Robin. It also has full sound effects and features Danny Elfman’s incomparable score. This is an incredible look at what may have been and a really fun scene to watch. It’s great when film-makers take the time and effort to get these little slices of history and present them to the fans.

"The Fall And The Fallen" - Conclusion Writer: Tom King
Artist: Mikel Janín
Color Artist: Jordie Bellaire Letterer: Clayton Cowles

Review by Max Byrne
After the surreal and dreamlike events that dominated issue #73, Tom King has given readers something more visceral and action packed in this new instalment of his magnum opus. With a front cover that teases a "Father vs. Son: Desert Showdown", paired with Mikel Janín's wonderful image of the multi-generational Dark Knights facing off in combat, this issue is very clearly putting all its cards on the table.
