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. He posted a comic on his Tumblr recently that sheds light on how television networks evaluate the impact of shows on their audience and distill a crowd of children’s reactions down to several data points for showrunners.

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.”

Questions! Questions That Need Answering

Cartoon Network Puts DC Nation on Unexplained 3 Month Haitus With No Notice to Fans or Creators

Cartoon Network viewers, fans of Young Justice, Green Lantern, and lots of people anticipating the premiere of the first Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, and Black Lightning shorts were confused, Friday night, when they checked their television listings to find that in the hour when DC Nation normally aired, something else entirely was listed.

Many people assumed it was just a mistake, since even the creator of the Gemworld shorts, Brianne Drouhard, was under the impression that her work would begin airing tomorrow.

After all, DC Nation couldn’t go on hiatus again: it had only been two weeks since it returned with a new season of Young Justice and Green Lantern after a four month break. Could it?
