Beginning in the early 1990s, DC Comics started producing a series of cartoons all done in a cohesive style, based on the art of Bruce Timm. Naturally, they also published comics based on them. I got most of the comics. I didn't watch most of the shows. (I rarely watch TV that's not sports) They did build up their own continuity although it was rarely referenced. I eventually stopped getting the comics, but I can't remember now if that is because I lost interest or if they stopped publishing them.
