Batman: The Brave and the Bold, The Complete Second Season Out Today!

Bigger, bolder, blu-er! Warner Archive Collection today releases Batman: The Brave and The Bold – The Complete Second Season.

The fearsome fan-addict forces behind the Batman: The Brave and the Bold fired on all bat-cylinders for this fantastic sophomore season that skillfully blends super-heroics, sly satire, and a leviathan scope for an animated concoction embracing the fun of the past with the pow! of the present. Thanks to the series’ first season, Batman: The Brave and The Bold – The Complete Second Season goes even farther beyond the expected grim and grit of the Dark Knight in both its narrative approach AND in the fun.

Across the 26-episode second season – presented in HD and widescreen as it was meant to be seen – you’ll find a vacationing Aquaman, a requiem for a Scarlet Speedster, the legendary Justice Society, the celebrated Justice League International, the Super Batman of Planet X (voiced by Kevin Conroy), Batman’s Strangest Cases featuring a team-up with one snack-loving, mystery solving mutt, and an overarching story arc that climaxes in a stunning battle against Starro the Conqueror!

Joining Diedrich Bader (Batman) in this epic second season are some very special guest voices, including Adam West, Julie Newmar, Paul Reubens, Mark Hamill, Tom Kenny, John DiMaggio, Tara Strong, Stephen Root and many more!

And making this collection even more fab is the fact that the episodes are presented in the producer’s preferred order for the first time anywhere – including the The Mask of Matches Malone! in the correct aspect ratio!
