Holy Flashback, Batman! Fan Made Nightwing YouTube Series

The era of fan made media has allowed talented but amateur artists to express their love for certain characters, unfettered by studio restrictions. The only limitations these creators face are their own imaginations.  Not surprisingly, the Batman family is a huge topic to tackle in this world. Thus, we bring you a fun web series from last year.

Series Synopsis: “Grayson: Earth One’ is the re-imagined origin story of the hero known as Nightwing/ Richard Grayson. The series takes place in a new continuity on a new Earth separate from the DC Universe, freeing it from continuity restraints.

“Grayson: Earth One” season one is a non profit six episode season dedicated to exploring the origin story of the DC character known as Nightwing — but with a twist. The twist being that Richard Grayson has never had the good fortune of being adopted as a child by Bruce Wayne, thus never becoming the boy wonder. Instead, we have a Richard Grayson that had to fend for himself on the unforgiving streets of Gotham and, even worse, the streets of Bludhaven. A character that has to overcome years of dog eat dog mentality to become a selfless and kind individual. To ultimately fulfill his destiny and become a HERO.

Of course, changing that single event within Richard Grayson’s life sends a ripple across the entire DC universe. It changes the history of characters such as Bruce Wayne, Barbara Gordon, Helena Bertinelli and their adversaries too.

Why is change a good thing? Simply put, we wanted to tell a story that involves characters that are beloved, but also wanted a story that the audience could not predict based its iconic source material. We would also love to attract people that had no previous interest in the comic book world by grounding these characters into situations that they could relate to. We look forward to creating a new fan base following these awesome comic book characters that we grew up with.
