The UNUSED Batman: The Animated Series Concept Art (Unused Character Designs)

Batman: The Animated Series is a classic, but have you seen what the iconic characters COULD have looked like? Join us as we dive into the original designs and unused concept art for B:TAS, including very different takes on villains like an all black suited Catwoman, a Golden Age style Two-Face, and a far scarier Man-Bat.
