I just learned of the news and I am crying. He was my favorite Batman. And, from everyone I know who had met him, he was also an incredibly nice guy. This is just so very sad.

My hero…. MY HERO…
Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved this man. He was the definitive voice of Batman. Everytime I read the comics, it’s his voice that I hear as Batman. May he RIP. :pensive::pensive::pensive:

Tragic news – and only 66, that’s so soon! But he did put a lot of life in those years, becoming one of if not the iconic voices of Batman, inspiring several generations with it between his runs on Batman: The Animated Series, the Arkham games, and more.

This is so ■■■■■■■ sad. I honestly don’t know how to describe how I feel right now. It feels like such a massive loss. And it is. He’s just always been the voice of Batman for me, since even before I considered myself a big DC fan. A celebrity death has never hit me this hard. It just doesn’t feel like it can be real. I don’t want it to be real. This is an incredibly sad day for Batman fans.

Very sad to hear this news. I’m not one thats usually moved to tears from news like this (I usually think "It’s sad, but ai didn’t know them personally…) but I could feel the tears welling in my eyes when I read this. He was my Batman, above all others like I know he was for so many of you. His body is gone, but his voice will echo on until the end of time as THE voice of the Bat. RIP good sir.

I remember meeting him in 2014 at Denver Comic Con. He was such a genuine human being, interacted with all of his fans, have a little small talk with everyone, just a very down to earth kind of guy.

When I finally met him he asked about the book I had him sign, my Batman File book, which is very much a collectors item that any Batman fan should have. He was such a wonderful person to meet, and when we posed together I remember the fans going wild about us. It’s a memory that’ll always stick with me for the rest of my life!

That is such a wonderful story. I’m already tearing up again. One of the things I loved about Mr. Conroy was that he wasn’t just enormously talented, but from everything I have heard he was so very nice and so open to his fans. Also, I love the Golden Age Batman costume!
