'Inception' has nothing on my dreams

I know Inception is technically the wrong Christopher Nolan movie to reference here, but I don't care. Anyway, here's a crossover to top crossovers, except probably Scooby Doo Meets Phyllis Diller.

All crossover excitement aside, it actually raises the topic of the divergence from the fantasy of Tim Burton's Batman (and by extension, Joel Schumacher's, but let's pretend that didn't happen, even if it did give the world George Clooney in a silver-tipped, faux-nippled Batsuit) to the technically-explainable-down-to-the-last-detail-ness of Christopher Nolan's Batman, who looks more like an expensive military frivolity than a comic-book hero, which I don't mind as much as Katie Holmes but imagine I could only put up with for one more film. But really, that's just me backpedaling.

Summer Filler

I'm very mindful that as I cram what remains of the holidays with Tomb Raider and Pokémon, all the while there's a blog to be updated. The answer? Yet more old stuff pulled from my college application portfolio. What follows is a storyboard version of a "pitch" for a web-based cartoon partly-based on what my co-workers and I went through when our store went into administration in 2008.

The main characters would have been two kids and an ancient man.

I didn't realise it at the time, but it appears I accidentally ripped off Gary Baseman somewhat. Oh well. (Click 'Read more' for storyboard)
