Regardless of your opinion on Fox's Gotham, there's one thing we can all (probably) agree on — the show is a whole lot cooler in the style of Batman: The Animated Series.

Artist Rick Celis has drawn Gotham characters in the style of Batman: TAS, and the result is pretty great. He truly loves The Animated Series, even trying to get the show back with the rallying cry #BringBatmanTASBack. The images are beautiful, capturing the art deco style of TAS while still keeping the Gotham characters recognizable -- and foreshadowing where they might go down the line.

Celis does lots of other pop culture characters in the Batman: The Animated Series style: Friends, MCU characters, Star Wars, and fun hybrids, like crossing Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker with his animated Joker (it works, trust us).
