Wizard World Chicago will see the debut of Batman: Gotham Knight, the third directed to DVD animated original feature from DC Comics, Warner Premiere, Warner Home Video and Warner Bros. Animation.
Batman Gotham Knight is a fresh and exciting new entry into the Batman mythos, spinning out of a 40-year history in animation including the Emmy(R)-winning Batman: The Animated Series, widely considered a pivotal moment in American animation. A cross section of distinguished creators, award winning producers, and acclaimed writers weave six interlocking stories that reveal Bruce Wayne’s journey to The Dark Knight, each with stylish art from some of the world’s most revered animation visionaries.
If you happen to be in the Windy City on June 28, head over to the event which is scheduled for that evening. Brian Azzarello and Alan Burnett are confirmed to be there, as are other filmmakers and voice talent (Kevin Conroy perhaps?).
For the rest of us poor saps who can’t attend the event, Batman Gotham Knight arrives July 8, 2008 on DVD and Blu-Ray.
