Comic by Green Lantern The Animated Series Creator Exposes Strange, Gendered World of Focus Testing

Giancarlo Volpe was one of the producers of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, cancelled after one season due to poor toy sales (which may or may not have been unfortunately fueled by the poor performance of the live action Green Lantern movie) and Cartoon Network’s desire to refocus its DC Comics based offerings into DC Nation despite cult popularity.

Bruce Timm Celebrates Batman’s 75th Anniversary With A New Animated Short

Since Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series were cancelled by Cartoon Network, I stopped paying attention to the DC Nation shorts which were continuing on Wednesdays during Teen Titans Go! But I did not miss the news of Bruce Timm returning to his Batman: The Animated Series animation style for a special anniversary short (he also helped with the celebration of Superman’s 75th). It’s described as, “a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange.”

They created a world where imaginary friends exist on an unimagined plane before they make it to us. The results are adorable.
