Hey Mr. Matsuda! it's so cool to see you posting on these boards. i'm a huuuuge fan of The Batman, and all your work on this (and other) show(s). The Batman vs Dracula project looks amazing (as well as the comic, which i will ALSO be picking up as soon as i see a copy! ;D), and i can't WAIT to buy it as soon as it's released. i was wondering, just because i'm curious, just how violent IS this movie going to be? if you can reveal any slight details as examples, i'd love to know. so far, we know it's got some blood in it (as well as a blood-bank scene ) ..i know it might seem a weird question to ask, it's just that i'm thrilled about the new, more mature, tone this movie takes. would you say, perhaps, that it is the "darkest" (most violent) animated Batman movie ever?

That's a great cover. Mr. Manning's an incredibly talented writer too, and this issue is definitely a "must have" for me. I always enjoy stories that "fill in" certain events -- "Shadows of the Empire," for example, is a great Star Wars story (set between Empire and Jedi). This one sounds interesting, set during a "missing week" of the DTV.
Should be a fun comic, and it'll be nice when DC gives Mr. Manning a book in the core DCU -- look at what Dan Slott's done with "Arkham Asylum" and now his work at Marvel. As good as his current work is, I'd be most interested in seeing Mr. Manning tackle a book outside the "animated" universe.

Hope you like what we did with the issue. Thanks for hooking Nachie up with all the info on the movie, too. We had a couple challenges creating this tie-in and trying to make it mesh with what you guys had made, and every little bit helped. If you have a minute once the issue is released, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
Thanks for the kind words. Now hurry up and get a job as an editor at DC so you can give me some of that coveted DCU work.
[how come there are rarely any or no cars around chase scenes? it's like an empty gotham city.
budget / time thing mostly. The cars that are moving are animated in 3D and toon shaded, but whatever is standing still is hand drawn. Sometimes Korea dosen't always follow our guides and dosen't draw every detail we put in either. but its mostly a time issue......... this is after all done on a TV budget and time frame.
Regarding the violence of the dtv. It's more than the regular episodes just cause we can do more on a dtv. Saturday morning programming is different than a direct to video release. That being said it's nothin crazy, but does add to your viewing pleasure. I'm looking forward to the bat vs drac dtv, there are some really cool things going on in that movie. I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks. Who knows, if it does well, hopefully we can do many more!
majorhoy: Where is everybody?
