One door closes and another opens, as they say. With the ending of the critically acclaimed of The Batman cartoon, Warner Bros. has announced the next animated series, The Brave and The Bold.
Started in 1955 and run until 1983 as a team-up series, the formula of Brave and the Bold cemented into place as a Batman and Guest comic. With writer Bob Haney and artist Jim Aparo, the series was a more light-hearted and bizarre take on Batman than had been seen previously. Stories ran the gamut of demonic possession to premonitions of Batman‘s death by Adam Strange. A cult favorite, Brave and the Bold teamed Batman up with Green Arrow, Metamorpho, Sgt. Rock and many many more.
From the preview image, it looks like this new animated series looks to embrace this lighter tone of the classic comic book series.
The new series premieres on Cartoon Network March 2009.
