Firstly, if you’re reading Batman’s dialogue and it’s not in the voice of the late Kevin Conroy, you’re doing it wrong.

For yours truly, the art literally makes or breaks these Adventures Continue stories. If you venture too far away from that Bruce Timm style, it kills the vibe. Thankfully, Jordan Gibson has mastered it. In terms of both the art and the writing, his felt like an episode of The New Batman Adventures. And when it comes to these issues, that’s the best you can hope for. It’s a tremendous trip down memory lane.

Astonishing Art: Kevin Conroy by Dustin Lee Massey

Yup. It’s another Kevin Conroy/Batman tribute. I have no regrets.

Conroy did actually get to lend his face to a live action version of Bruce Wayne in a 2019 episode of Batwoman. But that was an older, broken down, more Kingdom Come-ish version of the character. But this piece by Dustin Lee Massey depicts Conroy as a prime years version of Batman. And perhaps a more classical version of the character, given the blue and gray outfit, yellow utility belt, and large bat symbol on the chest. It’s a fitting tribute to Conroy, as he embodied the character of Batman as well as any live action actor ever has.

And just for reference, here’s a clip of Conroy playing Bruce Wayne in the previously mentioned Batwoman episode. Hearing that classic Kevin Conroy Batman baritone in a live action setting is surreal and chilling in the best way possible.

Toy Chest Theater: Kevin Conroy Tribute by kneelbeforezod

I’m normally not a huge fan of toy photographers processing grief or sorrow at someone passing away via their work. Simply put: It often comes off tacky to me. For instance, we saw a lot of that when Stan Lee died.

But once in awhile, you get a shot like this one. On paper, the idea of various versions of Batman saying goodbye to the Kevin Conroy animated Batman as he journeys into heaven sounds like a recipe for a tacky, tone-deaf disaster. But kneelbeforezod (who has appeared in this space with Batman before) managed to do it in a classy way. Not to mention visually appealing, with the contrast between the darkness of the cave and the brightness of the heavenly clouds.

Having the Adam West Batman in the background with the ’66 Batmobile is a great little touch too. It provides a nice sense that the Conroy Batman isn’t going to be alone on his next great adventure…
