Robert Valley Wonder Woman Statue is Fiercest Of Them All


Remember the great DC Nation Shorts that used to run Saturday mornings alongside Teen Titans Go!, Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series? Remember how one time DC and Warner Bros. got Robert Valley to do an absolutely, ridiculously awesome and stylish take on Wonder Woman for a few of those shorts? DC Collectibles remembers.

I Want To Go To There: Mari Hosaka’s ‘Amethyst’ Animation Backgrounds Are Beautiful


Brianne Drouhard's Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld animation shorts are easily one of our favorite DC Comics media projects of the past few years. The serial is exciting, it's got great action, and it's an incredibly interesting spin on Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and Ernie Colon's original idea, sending Amy Winston into a video game fantasy world where she has to level up and fight the bad guys to get home. And it's also an incredibly beautiful series.

The character and monster designs are fantastic, but the backgrounds are breathtaking, which is why I was excited to see that background painter Mari Hosaka had posted a bunch of them at her Tumblr. Check 'em out below to take a trip through Gemworld's forests, volcanoes and caves -- and, if you're me, get frustrated that you can't actually take a vacation there.

Live-Action ‘Static Shock’ Will Be Part Of Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content Digital Studio

Static, by Scott McDaniel

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.

FINALLY: ‘Beware The Batman’ And The Complete ‘Young Justice’ Season 1 Coming To Blu-Ray


Beware the Batman and Young Justice are two examples of animated shows that haven't exactly been treated well. Both Warner Bros. series were unceremoniously pulled from Cartoon Network, only to return to burn off episodes, sometimes in the middle of the night.

Treatment like that would seemingly indicated little commitment to release the series on home video, but never fear, fans. Warner Archive announced this week that it will release the second part of Beware the Batman's first season and the complete first season of Young Justice on Blu-Ray. Along with those, the company will also offer the full second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and the classic 1960s Aquaman animated series will be available through Warner Archive's streaming service.

‘The Noble Approach’ Documents The Life And Legacy Of Animation Artist Maurice Noble [Review]


This is something of a golden age for pop culture-themed art books. It seems like every week, a new volume comes on the market that illuminates some aspect of the history of popular art. In fact, there's so many great titles out there right now that it can be tough to figure out which are worth your time -- so we figured it would be a good idea to shine the ComicsAlliance spotlight on a few of the best things we've recently read.

The Noble Approach: Maurice Noble And The Zen Of Animation Design is a sweeping retrospective of Maurice Noble's art and legacy. It also offers a thought-provoking treatise on principles of animation design, compiled by author Tod Polson from Noble's notes.

‘Teen Titans GO!’ Returns With Live-Action Marionettes And Deals With The Sock-Devil In ‘Puppets Whaaaat?’ [VIDEO]


A superhero sitcom inspired by the characters created and/or popularized by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Teen Titans Go! is one of the best ever DC Comics series to come out of Warner Bros. Animation, which is saying something considering the prestigious history of that association. The series has been characterized by a virtually flawless balance of character-based superhero situation comedy and hilarious absurdism, with multiple episodes dedicated to dance parties, romantic rivalries, food-based melodrama, characters actually dying (only to be resurrected inexplicably in the next), and now, selling their souls to the Devil.

FINALLY: ‘Superman: The Animated Series’ And ‘Batman: Brave And The Bold’ Soundtrack Albums Released


Over the past 20 years, the music of Batman: The Animated Series, composed by a team led by the amazing Shirley Walker, has been praised to the high heavens. There's a good reason for that, too, since it's basically amazing, but one of the side effects is that it's overshadowed the music of Warner Bros Animation's other shows based on the DC Comics supheroes. Now, two of them are finally getting their due in the form of a special edition release from La-La Land Records.

Released this week, the four-disc soundtrack album for the classic 1990s Superman: The Animated Series and a two-disc set for contemporary favorite Batman: The Brave and the Bold are now shipping from La-La Land, with selections from the best episodes of each series, comprising hours of audio alongside in-depth liner notes.

Warner Bros. Animation Announces ‘Batman And Son’ Feature [Video]

Son of Batman WB Animation
Warner Bros. Animation

Like it or not, Grant Morrison's run on Batman was one of the longest and most definitive runs on a character in the past decade. So it makes perfect sense that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment would look to it as inspiration for one of its animated features.

The new Son of Batman movie appears to loosely adapt Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert's "Batman and Son," the first arc of Morrison's seven-year Batman run. It introduces Damian, but also throws Deathstroke into the mix, something that was never part of the story in the comics. Check out the first trailer for the movie after the jump.
