Debuting Saturday morning on Cartoon Network'sDC Nation block, "Deadman" is the latest superhero short from Warner Bros. Animation. Based on the character created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, the Deadman short comes courtesy of cartoonist C.H. Greenblatt, probably best known to ComicsAlliance readers as the creator of Chowder and to animation buffs as a storyboard artist for SpongeBob Squarepants. Also known as Boston Brand, Deadman is given voice by actor Matt Jones (Breaking Bad's Badger, Beware The Batman's Humpty Dumpty).
Cartoon Network's version of the Teen Titans is coming back to DC Comics this December, and the new digital-first series will share the same comedic backbone as the Teen Titans Go! cartoon, according to the writers.
Like the cartoon, the comic will be about "the interaction between the characters," said writer Merrill Hagan, who will alternate arcs with Sholly Fisch.
Regular Show's super strong immortal sage (who just so happens to be voiced by Mark Hamill) is about to step into the comic book spotlight. This November Boom! Studios will roll out Regular Show: Skips #1, written and illustrated by Mad Rupert (Saskana, Adventure Time). Set to show the RS world from Skips' point of view, the story sees Pops reward Mordecai, Rigby and the rest of the crew with a mini-vacation for all their hard work at the park. Thanks to the antics of his coworkers, though, Skips probably won't quite get the rest and relaxation he deserves for bailing his buds out of trouble time and time again. ComicsAlliance got in touch with Rupert to learn more about what readers can expect in the issue, how the artist got into Regular Show, and just how much she loves pugs.
Famed turntablist and DJ Mix Master Mike is known for his solo work, his long career as a contributing member of the Beastie Boys and collaborator with musicians like Travis Barker... to most teens and adults. To younger kids? Well, he may just wind up being known as the musician who made Puffy AmiYumi's 2002-2006 Teen Titans theme song a little easier to dance to for Cartoon Network's new Teen Titans Go!animated series on DC Nation. Taking the stage during the show's Sunday morning panel at Comic-Con last weekend, Mix Master Mike performed the show's new jam while on stage with producer Aaron Horvath and voice actors Scott Menville (Robin), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Tara Strong (Raven) and Khary Payton (Cyborg). As the moderator of the panel, CA's own Andy Khouri was on stage to capture Mix Master Mike's performance up close and catch the audience's enjoyment as the cast danced in celebration. You can watch the master at work, after the jump.
Following on the heels of last weekend's highly anticipated debut of Beware The Batman, another addition to the voice cast has been revealed, and it's news DC animation fans will likely enjoy: this morning, Tara Strongannounced that she'll be reprising her role as Batgirl in this Saturday's episode.
You've seen the screen shots, read the interviews and watched its stylized opening, but there's two more videos to watch before Cartoon Network's CG animated Beware the Batmandebuts. Posted on the official BtB Facebook page, the final promo vid sees Batman face down Professor Pyg and Toad, cruise around in the show's new Batmobile and narrowly escape rooftop explosions...
If you've cocked an eyebrow at the preview material that's been floating around the Internet in advance of Beware the Batman's premiere this Saturday at 10 a.m. ET on Cartoon Network, thinking it doesn't match your conception of what a Batman cartoon typically looks like, then Warner Bros. Animation producers Glen Murakami and Mitch Watson have got you right where they want you. The look, the music, the fact that very few villains who have appeared on Batman TV shows before now, it's all intentional.
With that in mind, ComicsAlliance spent some time talking with the two producers over the phone about how they conceived the show, their influences, and what the benefits are to taking some big risks.
It's been a long wait since DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation officially announced the new animated series Beware the Batman back in March 2012, but the show is finally debuting July 13 at 10 a.m., and Cartoon Network has released a slew of promotional material to coincide with the premiere.
