The 'Batman vs. Robin' Trailer Arrives

Silas Lesnick,

Check out the Batman vs. Robin trailer, previewing the upcoming animated feature film, the 23rd overall direct-to-DVD film from DC Comics.

One of my favorite storylines in the Batman comics, The Court Of Owls, has being adapted into an animated film. Jay Oliva, who directed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Pt. I and II, returns to helm this feature.

“Weird Al” Yankovic is also credited as The Dollmaker. That should be interesting. Jason O'Mara will be playing The Bat, but Kevin Conroy will be featured in the movie as well as the voice of Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s dad.

An Illustrator Drawing A New 'Star Wars' Cartoon Every Day This Year

Colin Campbell, Polygon:

[Gerard] Folz says he plans to draw and release a cartoon-panel illustration based on the original Star Wars movie, every day this year. “In anticipation of #StarWarsEpisodeVII I’m going to turn one #StarWars scene a day into a comic panel,” he tweeted.

I love projects like these. You can follow Folz on Twitter here.

Dark Horse Star Wars Farewell Mega Bundle

Dark Horse comics:

The end of an era closes. We say a fond farewell to Star Wars. The wookies will be missed and bounty hunters will be sad. But take heart young jedi, for these last few days you can seal in carbonite the entire Dark Horse digital library of Star Wars. Get every comic, every panel, every battle in perfect digital format in your collection. Access via the cloud city when ever you want. Many of these comics may never see the force again, or print. Get 20 years of Star Wars comic history at a once in a lifetime price.

After two decades of claim to the Star Wars name, Dark Horse has relinquished the Disney brand to Marvel, another Disney brand. To celebrate Star Wars’ life there and to say a proper goodbye, Dark Horse is selling the ENTIRE Star Wars digital comic collection for $300.

The collection spans 20 years and contains 568 titles. Any titles purchased before the new year will remain available in buyers’ collections.

If there are just a few Star Wars comics that strike your fancy, Dark Horse is also offering 50% off all titles in the series.

BATMAN vs DARTH VADER - Super Power Beat Down

Batman travels to the Death Star in the most epic episode of Super Power Beat Down of all time!

I’m a big fan of fan-based film. At least, I love the well produced labors of love that reference or include characters within the DC, Marvel, or Star Wars universes. This falls into the most impressive category along with Batman: Dead End by Sandy Collora and Phil Joanou’s Dirty Laundry.
