The Evolution of Batman Films Part 5
So we've come to it at last. Batman and Robin. The absolute nadir of not only the Batman franchise, but widely considered one of the worst films ever made. Warner Bros spent a fortune on this film, and tried to cash in on as much merchandising as possible. Unfortunately, the movie was a campy, jokey disaster. Comic fans hated it, the public hated it, and even the stars and director all but apologized for it. The reception was so toxic that it all but killed comic book movies for three years. Batman needed a fresh start, badly. Luckily, help was on its way...
Jeff Victor studied art/design at the University of Kansas and has worked as an illustrator ever since. Some of his clients include Cartoon Network, Nick Jr. Animation, Warner Bros Animation, ABCMouse, BBC/Create Media, National Geographic Kids, East West Animation, Playstation, HBO, DMS Films/Academy Awards, IFC, Bicycle Casino, K&Company, Hallmark Cards, and Universal Studios: Hollywood.
Jeff recently finished a seven year stint as a designer for Nickelodeon Games and is currently working as a freelance illustrator.
