Batman '89 Write up and Thoughts




Editor's Note: 

As a devoted fan of comics, I've Personally found myself gravitating towards graphic novels rather than the traditional "floppies" due to rising costs and the direction in content that doesn't align with my preferences anymore.

But an intriguing idea sparked in my mind. Why not delve into the captivating world of Tim Burton's Batman? From his iconic movies to the comic series Batman '89, there's an opportunity to explore the untapped potential of Burton's vision. Imagining what could have been if he had continued his Batman saga with Batman Continues instead of what we got, Batman Forever?

Batman is everywhere and his best run was the '90s?


In the past I've talked a lot (elsewhere not really here) about how awesome the Batman comics were in the 1990s. They were like pure gold! The editor, Dennis O'Neil, did a fantastic job bringing together all the different Batman stories happening in Gotham City. It was like a big puzzle that fit perfectly.

These stories didn't just focus on Batman and his superhero pals, but also on the regular people who lived in Gotham. It made everything feel so real, even though there were some really wacky bad guys running around in crazy costumes.

Being a part of that world was incredible. It felt like I was entering a different reality where anything could happen. The writers made sure to keep things grounded, but they also let their imaginations run wild. Batman comics were all about having fun and going on crazy adventures with these larger-than-life heroes and the weird criminals they faced.
