It looks so good! I can't wait. Smile

Although one of the Batmans looks like Griffith from Berserk... and that's kind of creepy. Shocked

I don't normally "squee", but hearing Kevin Conroy again made me do so.

Great to hear Kevin Conroy as the voice of Bats again. I'm definitely picking this up.

Oh wow...that's awesome. Laughing

I have extremely fond memories of watching the 90s Batman animated series when I was younger, so hearing Kevin Conroy back in action should be extreme win. And the artwork looks absolutely jaw-dropping.

BTW, if ya guys want to know more about Kevin Conroy and the upcoming Gotham Knight OAV, there's a lot of tidbits about it in this podcast interview of voice director Andrea Romano.

Some of the ones I recall are:

-- (Around the 33rd minute) Andrea couldn't name the art style, but yes, at one point, Batman will be SUPER-DEFORMED! Shocked
And the resulting quandary of her having Kevin Conroy (who's about her age ~50) do the SD Batman voice - if you think Batman singing is OOC...! Laughing

-- Why Kevin Conroy is not the voice of Batman in every incarnation, and why the many incarnations of Batman.

-- Many tidbits about who are in the voice cast, including that Ugly Betty actress.

-- Batman is pretty much the only recurring character in all the shorts, so each short has its own surrounding cast.

-- The unusual challenge of doing post-lay (dubbing after animation) instead of their usual pre-lay (voicing before animation).

There're some that I forget; just go ahead and listen to it. It's quite an informative interview about a lot of other stuff too.
