Something NEW has been Added!
Time for something different!
I'm a big fan of the various DC animated series developed by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini.
Here you have one great episode from "Batman the Animated Series". The animation here is not good as it actually used to be during the series, and even in that case is nothing spectacular but, ehy, this is from the 90s.
The story is terrific, the main character is a riot, and there are a lot of memorable lines.
Gentlemen, here you have "The Man who killed Batman", in three parts.
Please let me know if you liked this particular out-of-the Golden Age trip,

Big Bad Week- Act VII
I know this' not from the "Golden Age" but it's a classic nevertheless!
Written by my friend David Gerstein and drawn by "cumpa' from Italy too" Massimo Fecchi, this one celebrates the birthday of Zeke...which does happen to be on the same day of a certain trio of pigs (no wonder, all characters made their debut in "The Three Little Pigs". So we have one of them in-jokes/references only aficionados can understand and that are a beloved trademark in Gerstein's stories).
I'd be delighted if he would want to say something about this story.
Wit this story we end our marathon. Hope you liked it. In the future I may highlight other classic cartoon characters, so....stay tooned!

Big Bad Week- Act VI
This is another one I have always liked. When I was a child I couldn't believe Zeke's reaction when his son told him that he returned a lost wallet.
How can't you like Turner's graphic style? Just look, for example, at Zeke's avid look in the first page when he'd want the wallet from Li'l Bad Wolf.

Big Bad Week- Act V
Again another Buettner story (admiring these beautiful pages don't you think that it is a colossal shame that this author is not celebrated as he would deserve?). This has always been one of my favorite Disney stories.
No celebration of BB would be complete without posting this one.
BONUS: "Three Little Wolves", the best short starring BB in my opinion.

Big Bad Week- Act IV
This one is from Carl Buettner, an underrated artist who was behind several awesome looking Disney stories in the early 40s. He was also the first artist to draw the Big Bad Wolf for comicbooks too. Notice in fact how the Li'l Bad Wolf looks very much like the three sons Zeke had in the cartoons and sunday pages, still showing a certain, and out of character, villainesque look in his face. Love this detail anyway!
