Believe it or not, Batman: The Animated Series debuted 25 years ago. The fine folks at New York Comic Con are celebrating that fact with a special panel and some fan-favorite guests. One of the best animated series ever, which has also inspired quite a few follow-up series and even made its influence known on the live-action DC universe, Batman: The Animated Series remains a seminal work. The show introduced fans to such characters as Harley Quinn and the lesser-known Gray Ghost, Lock-Up, Phantasm, Red Claw, and Baby Doll. It also cemented Kevin Conroy as the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman and gave Mark Hamill a second iconic role as the voice of the manic, barely restrained Joker. If you’re a fan of Batman at all, this is a can’t-miss panel.
