In terms of overall tone and style, this series is principally based on the very-late '60s and 1970s Batman comics, which returned to the "grim avenger of the night" approach. This era most notably took off from contributions by writer Denny O'Neil and artist Neal Adams, who brought back the style from the first year of Detective Comics Batman stories with a more realistic approach. Robin's role was significantly reduced, with Dick Grayson attending college, just like this animated series. In fact, a number of episodes in this series are direct adaptations of acclaimed Batman comics from the 1970s, and one episode was actually written by O'Neil. See more »
