Officially, Batman: Assault on Arkham is an animated sequel to the video game Batman: Arkham Origins, building directly on the events of the game's ending, in which Amanda Waller starts up an Arkham universe version of the Suicide Squad.
Unofficially, it's a Batman: The Animated Series/Justice League reunion between voice director Andrea Romano and actor Kevin Conroy, who has been playing Batman off and on since 1992. The last time they worked together on a Batman project was 2009's Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. The movie also brings back CCH Pounder, who has been playing Amanda Waller since Justice League.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

With that being the case, now seems like a good time to look back on what might just end up being my favorite take on the DC Universe of all time, full of team-ups, ruthless villains, and, perhaps most importantly, Batman's laser sword.
I talked to producers James Tucker and Michael Jelenic and director Ben Jones to get their thoughts looking back on the show, what they felt they'd accomplished, and how well it holds up.
Bruce Timm, the Warner Bros. Animation legend who has been the guiding force behind nearly every DC Comics-based series and movie since co-founding what would become an animation powerhouse with Batman: The Animated Series nearly 20 years ago, is stepping down from his position as Supervising Producer to work on projects of his own, according to Voices From Krypton.
At least an old hand will be taking his place. James Tucker, a longtime director and producer on DC titles including Batman: The Brave
