Batman: Strange Days
Interview with Bruce Timm on "Strange Days"
Back when he produced "Batman: The Animated Series", Bruce Timm had
always wanted to set the series in 1939, using retro-technology, old
fashioned automobiles, hard-boiled film noir characters, vintage
clothing etc. While he did get to do that on his series, and give it a
timeless quality, in this short, he has quite possibly, got to make his
definitive Batman story set in 1939 (after over 20 years of working on
the character in various mediums).
The hulking zombie that obeys Professor Hugo Strange, is speculated to
be Solomon Grundy, a very popular villain in Dc Comics history.
