Review: "Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem" - Ten Tons of Fun

by Ed Liuon August 21, 2015
There’s a scene late in Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem where I envision Heath Corson pitching it at a story meeting, followed by numerous games of one-upmanship by animators, producers, and director Butch Lukic, ultimately yielding a scene of divinely inspired ridiculousness that left me cackling with laughter at the sheer audacity on display.
