However, with Cartoon Network’s Pokemon Black and White, you get aspects that happen last week in Emolga the Irresistible, and ...

Batman Black and White Motion Comics

15 years ago, back in 1996, DC Comics published a limited comic book series dedicated to Batman. Nothing unusual there, right? Well, this particular book series not only required authors to tell a short, punchy story in an 8 page sequence, but artists were reduced to a pallet of nothing but blacks and whites.
