Silent Shadow of the Bat

Silent Shadow of the Bat

How about some cool comic related video? These three come to us by way of a pointer from the very talented Lexington, KY based comic creator and writer RD Hall. Here’s how the original creator of this video series explains the creation…

Parts one and two are halves of a 12 minute short depicting the origin of “The Bat-Man” and introducing his amazing skills and abilities. Bob Kane and Bill Finger drew on a lot of silent films to create Batman, and I’ve always wanted to give the story a try using silent film techniques. What with that whole copyright/waste of time thing, you’ll have to settle for this collage. Here are the original influences re-arranged to tell Bruce Wayne’s story and his crusade against crime. A bit of fun not intended for sale or commercial exploitation… what with the huge commercial value of silent films and everything.
