Gotham High

Hey everybody! We have a huge treat in store for you this week from the Jeff and Celeste vault of awesomeness. Batman is both mine and Celeste's favorite superhero and some time about a year and a half ago, we were approached to create a spec series based off of an old drawing of mine that we then sent to DC. Unfortunately, the project got lost in the sea of all the other Batman related projects in the works. But hey, it was still fun to make.

The Story Synopsis:
We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you’re Bruce Wayne.
As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn’t tough enough, Bruce’s insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?

Coming back to this. The thinking these days tends to assume that kids today don't want to watch cartoons about adults. That's boring. So that's why a lot of shows tend to center on kids or early early early 20-somethings because that makes it easier for kids to see themselves in the characters.

If this conventional wisdom isn't true, TV stations are run by morons.

If this conventional wisdom is true, it's fucking sad.

But either way, it does tend to explain why Batman skews younger in the more recent animated shows (The Batman and this proposal) and why Spider-Man has umpteen billion cartoon shows because he's already in high school.

It also at least partially explains why Superman has been absent from animated shows for years now. Don't want to get too close to Superboy's legal entanglements, now do we?
