Trivia

  • Timm is a comics "purist", and refers to himself and his associates (including Paul Dini, Eric Radomski, Dan Riba and Alan Burnett) as "geeks".
  • Timm's minimalist, angular style is heavily based in his love of 1950's and 1960's-era comics and art deco architecture style. He is also completely self-taught, having never received any formal art schooling.
  • Lists his artistic influences as Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Jim Steranko, John Buscema, Wally Wood, Frank Frazetta, Dan DeCarlo, and Alex Toth.
  • Although he shared character designer duties on Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League with James Tucker, Timm did virtually all the original character designs for Batman: The Animated Series himself (with the exceptions of Mr. Freeze, who was designed by Mike Mignola and the characters Man Bat & the Mad Hatter, who were designed by Kevin Nowlan).
  • DC universe animated series, including Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, and other DC-set works associated with Timm (and his collaborators') art styles are often referred to by fans as "The Timmverse" of DC comics, relating to those series' distillation of popular storylines from the comic book versions or the outright introduction of new characters or relationships (such as Harley Quinn, alterations to The Question's personality and background, or Batman and Wonder Woman's romantic fling).
  • On the commentary for the Justice League Unlimited episode "This Little Piggy", Timm stated an interest in the WB teen dramas Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Several Buffy and Angel cast members provide their voices for the Timmverse shows including Alexis Denisof (Mirror Master and Zander in Justice League Unlimited and Batman Beyond respectively) Amy Acker (Huntress) Juliet Landau (Tala and Plastique) Adam Baldwin (Hal Jordan) Gina Torres (Vixen) and Daniel Dae Kim (Metron)

Bruce Timm on the Justice League's New Attitude (3194 words)
TIMM: That was the thing, we literally made a conscious effort in the first year to see if we could make the show entertaining and maybe not as dark as some shows we've done in the past.
TIMM: Without giving too much away because there are some interesting plot twists, in the first season we made a conscious effort to say we've got so much going on in the show we don't have time to spend with the characters in their off hours - and we still really don't.
TIMM: We just really made sure that anytime he got knocked down that he got back up and whoever it was that knocked him down, Superman was eventually going to clean his clock, and not have somebody else come in and clean his clock for him.
