Batman: Black & White Collection 2 Motion Comic
The second series of Warner Premiere Motion Comics slate, “Batman: Black & White” is taken from three award-winning collections of short stories starring the Caped Crusader.  The Motion Comics reflect the original and diverse visions of various artists and writers as they tell stories in the now-infamous world of Gotham City.

The “Batman: Black & White” stories are told from the perspective of Batman and range in theme from the unsettling drama of solving a brutal murder to the light comedy of fighting bad guys with a broken nose.  These short episodes also touch on elements of romance, mystery and even the supernatural.  And like any exciting Batman story, classic villains such as The Joker, Harley Quinn and Two-Face make heralded appearances.  It’s Batman as seen through the prism of some of today’s most eloquent graphic artists and writers.
