A few weeks ago, we covered the announcement that Warner Bros. Animation and Bruce Timm were working on creating a virtual reality Batcave (and, to a lesser extent, the announcement that I would be moving to the Matrix in order to live in it full time), but what we didn't know then was that it was part of a larger project in the works at WB. Today, that project has a name: Blue Ribbon Content, a "short-form digital division, which will develop and produce live-action and animated series for digital platforms."
Along with creators like Akiva Goldsman (the writer of Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, among other things) and Reginald Hudlin (of Marvel's Black Panther), Blue Ribbon has already announced that they'll be focusing on DC comics properties, most notably the VR Batcave and a live-action version of Static, the Milestone Media/DC Comics superhero created by Dwayne McDuffie, Robert L. Washington III and John Paul Leon.
The comic book community was distressed to learn last week that the late Robert Washington III, best known as for co-writing the original appearances of the pioneering teen superhero Static for Milestone Media and DC Comics, faced the possibility of being buried in an unmarked grave site for indigent New Yorkers -- a consequence of the very dire financial circumstances he found himself in at the time of his death earlier in June.

Numerous sources have confirmed the sad news that comics writer Robert L. Washington III has passed away after suffering multiple heart attacks. Washington's resume includes numerous credits from DC Comics and other publishers, but he was best known for co-writing the original appearances of the pioneering teen superhero Static at Milestone Media, where he collaborated with the character's co-creator Dwayne McDuffie and series artist John Paul Leon. Washington was just 47-years-old

Attention, everyone with fond memories of watching Static Shock on Saturday mornings: You might find yourself experiencing deja vu in upcoming months, if a tease about the second season of Cartoon Network's Young Justice series turns out to mean what many fans and commentators have suggested: that Static may be joining the animated sidekick team.During an interview with the World Finest blog about gett
What do you do when DC Comics produces a Static Shock comic book that is not to your liking and then cancels it outright? If you're writer/director/actor Stefan Dezil, you make a Static Shock movie. Just ahead of what would have been the late Static co-creator Dwayne McDuffie's 50th birthday, Dezil and his crew of filmmakers have releas
Static Shock co-writer John Rozum spoke out recently about what he said was "really going on behind the scenes" of the cancelled DC Comics title, which besides being one of the first New 52 series to be discontinued was also one of the very few superhero comics starring an African American hero in the leading role and. Fans were disappointed not just by the loss of a spotlight for the beloved character, created by Dwayne McDuffie and John Paul Leon, but
We've known for a while that Static would be starring in a new ongoing series, the question was just when and by whom. Thanks to a post at DC Comics' The Source, we now know that the Teen Titan's return to solo adventures will be handled by writer Felicia Henderson (Teen Titans) and artist Scott McDaniel (Nightwing, Green Arrow) with covers by Keron Grant (New Mutants).
