This Saturday's DC Nation block on Cartoon Network sees the first in a series of Metal Men animated shorts devised by cartoonists and animation veterans Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer. I confess the allure of Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru's intelligent robots whose personalities reflect the properties of their designated metals and their eccentric creator Dr. Will Magnus has long eluded me (with some notable exceptions like 52 and the gorgeous work of José Luis García-López and Kevin Nowlan in Wednesday Comics). However,  Dorkin & Dyer's creative partnership has produced stellar results in the past, including classic episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and the creation of Superman: The Animated Series' enduringly popular vision of Supergirl. If anyone can sell me on these comics pro favorites, it's them.
