Before The Dark Knight came out, Batman: The Animated Series was the only perfect adaptation of Batman. It was the only adaptation that accurately portrayed Batman as who he was in the comics. Batman wasn’t just some psycho in a suit that fought crime. Batman was a detective, he was intelligent and dedicated to his work. But at the same time he was also a dark and tortured soul.
Everything about this animated series was perfect, from the look, the tones of the story, the animation and the voice acting, they were all first rate and on point. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill’s voice acting in the animated series is legendary and remains as one of the most iconic portrayals of any comic book character ever done.
What makes this series one of the best comic book adaptions ever is the wide range of audience that it can appeal to. With Batman: The Animated Series, we have a “cartoon” that is written for adults and can be enjoyed by kids as well. This series was released in 1992 but to this day it still stands to be just as good as any other animated series out right now.
