Paul Dini Discusses Dark Night: A True Batman Story

Kevin Smith released a new episode of his podcast Fatman on Batman in which he discusses the new book Dark Night: A True Batman Story for Vertigo Comics with the author Paul Dini.

Paul Dini has been involved in many projects such as He-Man & the Masters of the Universe and being a co-creator of the DC Animated Universe with Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski. Paul Dini was also a co-creator for Harley Quinn, in which Kevin Smith named his daughter after. In the video Paul discusses when he decided to write the story and how he was looking at Batman’s presence to the overall universe.

He also reveals that the incident happened during the writing process of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and almost left the project, which to many is one of the best films to feature Batman.

Kevin Smith does make a brief mention that Batman has never been featured in a Vertigo tile before.

Dark Night: A True Batman Story releases on June 21 and is available in hardcover on Amazon.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
