‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’ Producer Giancarlo Volpe Explains Focus Groups In New Comic

Art by Giancarlo Volpe, http://giancarlovolpe.tumblr.com

In his time working in animation, Giancarlo Volpe has worked on some of my all-time favorite cartoons. As a writer, director and animator, he worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender (including directing the pretty phenomenal series finale), King of the Hill, and most recently as the director of the JLA Adventures: Trapped In Time movie. As a result, you'd think he'd know a little something about how to make an exciting and enjoyable animated series, right? But it seems that even he can learn a lot from a focus group!

At least, that was the opinion of the studio during Volpe's time as the showrunner for Green Lantern: The Animated Series, when he attended his first focus group run by the studio. On his tumblr, Volpe recounted the experience in the form of a comic featuring an appearance by Bruce Timm, and to say the least, it does not sound like a fun time. Read a few pages below!

Animal Man Returns to ‘DC Nation’ This Weekend in a New Short [Video]

animalmanshortclip

The shorts in this weekend's DC Nation on Cartoon Network are all about the education: When Aquaman is out of town, who better to deal with the dangers of the aquatic Black Manta than a hero who swims with the fishes (literally)? And just what kind of sports does Superman like?

Alongside another installment of the Aardman Animation vox populi series DC's World's Funnest -- Although, judging from this clip, isn't this a re-run of the first episode? -- this Saturday will see a second episode of the ridiculously fun Animal Man shorts, this time seeing him face-off against Aquaman's arch-nemesis in a showdown to reveal who the true hero of the beach really is:

As well as these two shorts, there'll also be full length episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series (including the origin of a new Red Lantern) and Young Justice, with the latter seeing the one thing standing between the Earth and an alien invasion being Beast Boy. Yeah, we're probably all going to be in trouble come Sunday...

DC Nation airs at 10am every Saturday on Cartoon
