INSIGHT EDITIONS AND MONDO PRESENT:
BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES
THE PHANTOM CITY CREATIVE COLLECTION
Art by Justin Erikson
Introduction by Paul Dini
Mondo and Insight Editions are proud to present Batman: The Animated Series: The Phantom City Creative Collection [Sept 15, 2020; $60.00] a visually breathtaking celebration of the Emmy Award–winning series.
Known for their limitless passion and incredible ingenuity for film and television posters, Mondo turns their attention to the highly acclaimed DC show Batman: The Animated Series. The show first aired in 1992 and was instantly met with critical praise for its sophisticated writing, bold storytelling and distinctive, noir-influenced art style, generating an intense following that thrives to this day.
Over the years, Mondo has received global recognition for their astonishing artisanal posters, and their creations for Batman: The Animated Series are no exception. The studio has partnered exclusively with the award-winning artist at Phantom City Creative, Inc., Justin Erickson, in order to bring this show to life in a striking and unparalleled way. Paul Dini, longtime writer and co-producer of the Animated Series (and co-creator of Harley Quinn), contributes a wonderful introduction.
Filled with Erikson’s slick graphic design as well as beautifully rendered illustrations, Batman: The Animated Series: The Phantom City Creative Collection is a one-of-a-kind tribute to one of the greatest animated shows of all time.
I cannot wait for this book! As a Batman fan, and a huge aficionado of The Animated Series, this volume just ticks all the boxes. I cannot wait to add it to my Insight Editions collection.
