The Bat Man of Shanghai
I think Canadian viewers can watch it here
Wolf Smoke’s “Bat Man of Shanghai” is one of the best interpretations of the material that I’ve ever seen! Set in the 1930’s, Catwoman, Bane, and Bat Man fight over the Scroll of Destiny. These shorts were broadcast on Cartoon Network’s as part of the DC Nation. The animation is so fiercely raw. Totally feels like one of the classic Shaw Brothers kung fu flicks except with TRON eyes. I’m also loving the redesigns of the costumes, although I think Catwoman’s is the most successful. Bane’s is a bit too close to the original for my taste, and I think more could have been done with Bats. But it’s still fucking aweseome! I need this as a regular series. NEED!
