Boxtrolls-Movie-Posters-Comic-Con-Bug-Eating

So, as much as I have always loved comics, cartoons and everything related to the world of being a nerd, generally, I have never attended or paid much attention to the many, varying comic conventions that are so popular these days. Maybe because I haven’t lived in SOCAL that long, but I now realize how incredibly out of the loop I am. In researching what, in relation to animation, this year’s Comic-Con has to offer, I have been bowled over by all the cool exhibits, guests and products available to the 130,000 fans that managed to get tickets to this exclusive event.

batman-beyond

In addition to the cool short from Bruce Timm, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have produced another animated tribute to Batman honoring the Caped Crusaders 75th anniversary. This new animated short is set in the Batman Beyond world with the semi-retired Bruce Wayne (voiced again by Kevin Conroy) and his young pal Terry (voiced by Will Friedle) taking up the mantle of Batman. The duo is being attacked by robotic Bat-droids that look like all of the different incarnations of the Batman character and the Bat-suit over the years. It’s really a cool tribute.
