Bruce Timm’s contribution to Batman’s legacy is huge. I rank his work as high as Neal Adams. He was able to take a huge body of work and mythology and tie it together in a half hour format. When I first saw it I was 22 and, honestly, wasn’t impressed. Needless to say the stories kept me coming back and then the retro design began to grow on me and soon became another reason why I loved the show. It even impressed my parents at the time.
