New Skool & Old Skool: Beware the Batman vs. Batman The Animated Series

DC Nation is keeping up with the Batman revamp in releasing a new cartoon series: "Beware the Batman"The new CGI series premieres July 13 10 a.m. ET/PT as part of Cartoon Network's DC Nation programming block. 

The show is mixing modern and classic; Batman's loyal butler Alfred is an ex-secret agent (I know we'll see about that one), and the superheroine Katana is retooled as swordswoman and Alfred's goddaughter. Instead of battling villains like The Joker and Catwoman, Batman faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie.

I'll be honest I was skeptical at first as I see the cartoons my nephews watch now that have CGI, they are fooled at times by the visuals ha ha. I hold my tongue in wanting to tell them: "In my day there was storytelling in cartoons!"

The visuals for the new show look great, I hope the storytelling is compelling as my beloved Batman The Animated Series. I remember I would rush home from school to watch it by 4pm lol. Here are a few of my favorite images from the show and the opening:
