Here's a promising teaser for the upcoming webseries The Batman Chronicles, starring Anthony Misiano, the cosplayer known as Harley's Joker, as the Clown Prince of Crime. If you'd like to help this team of Bat-fans get their vision off the ground, you can send some crowdfunding dollars their way.

Here's the pitch for The Batman Chronicles:

Our Bruce Wayne is young, and doesn't have all the answers to his past. He is still struggling with the inner guilt that stems from the night his parents were murdered. His choice to become "The Batman" was to be his atonement. Our series begins with Batman not far along in his crime-fighting career. He's not perfect, he's naive, and he has a lot learn.

Now, a new crime syndicate has taken over the streets of Gotham: The Red Hood Gang. Batman must figure out who the leader of this gang is, and take them down. But he can't do it alone. He will need the help of Commissioner James Gordon and other allies. When he comes to face the leader of the Red Hood Gang, it marks the start of a never ending tango.... (HA HA HA HA). He will have to go to the farthest reaches of his skill to take down this criminal mastermind and save what is left of the city's heart.

In addition to Misiano, the series will star Daniel Petruccio as Bruce Wayne and Bob Keiffer as Jim Gordon. Artist and television editor Joe Petruccio will direct and the script is being written by Michael Lupia, a film and television student at Boston University who is currently cutting his teeth as a writer and director on BU's long-running soap opera Bay State.

The team is currently running an IndieGoGo campaign. If you'd like to help them out, they're offering a digital download of the first set of episodes for a $25 pledge, plus a thank you in the credits.
