DC Nation Ad

DC Nation is an upcoming TV series that will air on Cartoon Network in 2012. This new ad shows cut scenes from the Lego Batman game, and the upcoming Gotham City Imposters, as well as Green Lantern and Young Justice, and behind the scenes stuff. It looks good and should serve to get the DC brand out there and entice new readers.

The Big Bang Theory and DC Comics Team Up

This is my 1800th post. Wow. That went fast.

My podcast co-host Mladen and I disagree on the entertainment value of The Big Bang Theory. I actually quite like it, but maybe that’s just because I like to see comics being discussed during prime time. It would be good to see fanboys and girls portrayed as something other than uber-nerds though.

Well, the show is now being syndicated, ie, repeatable daily, and DC Comics is teaming up to celebrate by offering Big Bang themed backing boards and more goodies.

Further details here, in which you can also see the below excerpt featuring the BBT boys, which after some searching I discovered is from Power Girl #4 from 2009. Read more pages of that ish here.

 

Wonder Woman TV Series Logo

I have a feeling this new TV series starring the Amazonian superhero (from David E. Kelley) will receive more criticism than the Spider-Man Broadway show. Here’s the logo and here’s a brief look at a day’s shooting, with Elizabeth Hurley, and no she’s not the titular heroine.
