FINAL UPDATE: A Big Thank you to Reddit!.

I was Producer and Creative Director of The Batman. I draw things. I started a new mobile games company. This explains everything: AMA and I'll respond with a drawing. Will do as many as I can today. Shameless self-promo, we launched an iPhone game: it's what we'd like to think a Rock Paper Scissors game would be like if Michael Bay made it. We also did a press release, I think it turned out well:

UPDATE: WOW! Front page! Thank you guys! Keep the requests coming. I'll do as many as I can get to. Please upvote ones you guys like so I can like, harness the power of the crowd to help me be lazy, I mean, prioritize which ones I work on.

UPDATE 2: Overwhelming response people. Thank you for all the kind words. Will draw until my hand falls off.

UPDATE 3: Sorry folks, so many good requests. Will try to knock out a few more.

UPDATE 4: OK, redditors, this has been insanely fun. You guys are the weirdest, geekiest, awesomest people on the internet. Thanks for all the kind words. If you'll have me back hopefully we'll do this again sometime. In the meantime, more shameless self promotion - download our iPhone app: and follow us on Facebook!

Thanks again Reddit, you guys are the best!!!!

Hey Mr. Matsuda!

I'm also in the animation industry, a character designer at Cartoon Network! It's awesome to see more artists here.

I would love to see a drawing of my favorite pairing Harley-Quinn and Poison Ivy.

Edit: Decided to give it a go after lunch.

poopeater22213 karma

massivejoe580 karma

andersoncoopersboner135 karma

I was/am a huge fan of your show. I loved the reinvention of all the old characters. If you have the time, would you draw me as a villain in The Batman's World?

fenney135 karma

If you draw me Batman riding a T-Rex then I will draw you any picture back.

massivejoe148 karma

i have no idea what seth looks like. my version of seth can be either white or asian, but if he's neither, then maybe find a kid named seth to give this to? HAPPY BIRTHDAY SETH!!!

fazdogg108 karma

massivejoe123 karma

Alfred, what does AMA mean?

Yazim100 karma

Dang, any chance for an Android version in the near future?

If so (or if not) can you draw me a Batman Android?

massivejoe396 karma

massivejoe55 karma

for those of you wondering what it looks like to see me drawing in action (and i know you do!!), wonder no more! should we cross post this picture in /r/gonewild?

wInt3rgr33n53 karma

What is your favorite thing you have drawn?

massivejoe156 karma

this was one that comes to mind that i had the most fun with. was for cover of Play magazine:

also, the spock and batman high five that kerblo requested coming up is going to be up there as well.

n0xi341 karma

any chance of some pics from your sketch book? or maybe model sheets? I love looking at that stuff. I am an aspiring storyboard artist

massivejoe91 karma

here's some sketches from a while back. i do everything on computer now, so harder to dig up recent stuff:

strike0541 karma

Who do YOU think would win in a fight honestly: Batman or Superman?

massivejoe189 karma

that's a tough one. batman has no fatal flaw like kryptonite. but superman could just like toss a bulldozer from like a mile away and hit him before he could get within range of kryptonite. so i'd have to go with superman, even though batman paid my bills for a while.

gogoshanny36 karma
