With the lead strip itself, it took me a while to hit my stride, which I'm only just starting to do in these last two or three stories. -- Alan Moore

August marks the 75th anniversary of Two-Face's first appearance (Detective Comics #66). To celebrate I figured I'd post a few Two-Face comics throughout the month.

First up is Bruce Timm's 'Two of a Kind' from Batman: Black and White.

"When we originally plotted this story, Bullock and Montoya were supposed to be the main protagonists, but after Paul turned in his script, I decided I wanted to put Batgirl in it, too (I love to draw pretty girls, in case you didn't know). As I recall, Paul's reaction was 'WHAT!!??!!' I explained how I thought we could do it and subsequently wrote most, if not all, of her dialogue myself directly on the boards. I think Paul was ultimately happy with the final result, but you'd have to ask him." --Bruce Timm, Afterword, Batman: Mad Love and Other Stories

"When we were originally developing the character, instead of making her the daughter of Hippolyta and blessed by Hera, we were going to make her the daughter of Zeus. She would actually be the daughter of a god! Then the next day, the next day after our meeting, that was the new version of the character in the comics! (laughs) Damn you, Brian Azzarello!" - Bruce Timm

'Back in the old days of “Batman: The Animated Series,” several times I tried to do “Batman as a vampire” stories, and every time got shot down. The world was not ready for it. This was in pre-Buffy days. Vampires were not allowed on children’s television back then. I remembered that and thought "Batman as a vampire would be kind of cool."' - Bruce Timm

'So I was thinking, a different version of the Justice League, what do you do that’s different? And around that same time, DC Comics was doing the New 52 reboot and when I first heard about that I thought, wow, that’s really intriguing, I wonder what they’re going to do with the characters. That made me start to think about the silver age versions of The Flash and Green Lantern, and how when they brought them back they kept the name and the gimmick of the golden age versions of those characters and threw everything else out. They had new costumes, their powers worked differently, they had new alter egos, and I thought that was the most successful reboots in the history of comics and I thought wouldn’t it be exciting if they did that with the entire line of DC Comics. I knew they weren’t going to do that because you can’t, that’s just too huge a financial gamble. It made me start thinking though, if I was going to “reimagine Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman,” the three biggest, most important characters in the DC Universe, what would they be?' - Bruce Timm

"It becomes hard to do something fresh and new – even with action sequences; every story you tell, Batman’s gotta do something, Superman’s gotta do something, and you go, well what hasn’t he done already? We’ve done hundreds of hours of content with these characters! So with this Gods and Monsters version of it, it does open up all kinds of new possibilities, and not just for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, but for all these other DC characters. It’s kicking over the table, coming up with different ideas for the characters." - Bruce Timm

Sure, it's not perfect. It's so Batman and Superman centered that others got a bit shafted. For that matter, things didn't go so well for some Batman characters (Just ask Tim Drake). Still, it's positives far outweigh it's negatives, and aspects of it would find their way into the main DCU.

Ladies and gentlemen, the DCAU.
