Hi, I'm Taz! I've been a fan of Batman for as long as I can remember, and watching The Batman for the first time was a dream come true. I love Batman and this adaptation with all my heart and I'm excited to see what wonderful work we all create together!

> TOBY - GRAPHICS || twitter || instagram

Hi, I'm Toby! I got fan premiere tickets to The Batman and have watched it 4 more times since then (people keep asking me to watch with them and I can't say no). One of my favorite live action adaptations of Batman and will continue to be until the sequel comes out! Super excited for this project and looking forward to see everyone's work 😈

> LOLO - PRODUCTION || twitter || carrd

Hello! I'm Lolo aka Missdoodlesalot and I'm a SoCal designer/illustrator obsessed with DC Comics! I was introduced to Batman since I was young (shout out to Batman: The Animated Series) and have been an avid enjoyer of the Dark Knight! The Batman was such a fresh look at Bruce's younger years and I'm so excited to be a part of a project I'm so passionate about!

> KYE - SOCIAL MEDIA || twitter || carrd

Hi, I'm Kye! Lifelong Stephanie Brown fan and avid batfamily enthusiast. I've seen many Batman films in my time (former 1992 Batman Returns truther here), but none that I've walked away from feeling like I'd actually watched something lifted from the comics until The Batman. I'm SO stoked to be here and watch this project come to life!
