Aw yeah! I've been waiting for this! I can finally watch the show from beginning to end. I saw the first few episodes when I was younger and the final episodes on The Death and Return of Superman Blu-ray but not the entire series. I liked what I saw but didn't keep up with it back in 2006. Superman, a bunch of heroes I'd never heard of and a fantastic theme song? So cool!

I'm really happy to be getting the chance to catch up on the DC animation I've missed on Blu-ray (ex. Justice League season two, Young Justice Outsiders) this year. Plus there are actual bonus features! :D

Warner Archive announced that all episodes of the fan-favorite Legion of Super-Heroes animated series will arrive on Blu-ray come Summer 2020, along with a DVD collecting the series’ second season. Legion of Super-Heroes – The Complete Series will be available starting July 14, 2020, and is available for pre-order now through Warner Archive, WB Shop and other select digital retailers. As always, The World's Finest has the press details!

Looks like the animation is by the same studio that did "The Batman". Which quite frankly, I'm not crazy about.
Watchable, absolutely, but hardly cutting edge animation.

But I'll give it a look nonetheless.

I'm not sure how reliable this website/twitter account is, but it claims that Superman: The Animated Series will be coming to Blu-Ray from WB on October 21st. Sounds like it could be a Warner Archive release?


So although WB/DC will be very quiet at this years Comic-Con@Home, we might want to keep an eye out for the following panel:

Warner Archive's Secret Origins of Saturday Morning Cartoons

To be fair, it was a French retail website that uploaded the details prematurely. Just like they did with Batman Beyond last year. Interesting that Warner Archive might be taking the reins for this one... I though for sure the main home video people would tackle this release.
True, I reduce my sarcastic rage by half. :p

But yes, it is odd. But WA has taken on pre-digitally animated series before - some of The Zeta Project and Static Shock were traditionally animated I believe. So they have the experience. Quality of the episodes shouldn't be an issue. Or maybe STAS didn't need extensive work done on restoring episodes that BTAS and BB did? What's also odd is they're choosing to release it this year. If they waited until next year, it would have been the 25th anniversary of the premiere in September. EDIT: I suppose they figured to strike while the iron is hot. 2020 is basically the year of Superman - Red Son in February/March, Legion of Super Heroes this week, Man of Tomorrow in August, and now potentially S:TAS in October.

I'm just holding out hope for a release of "The Batman" this year. That would complete my collection.

Wow someone actually replied to my failed logo thread...
Kat Hudson's Twitter account was hacked. As such, she started a new account (KatHudsonArt).

Matt Vogel's podcast sounds like a lot of fun just from this sound clip.

Marge Simpson is trending on Twitter. I won't say why, though.
I wonder if the mid 30's Fleischer cartoons with the 3d backgrounds with 2d characters was an inspiration for Paper Mario
