It's nice to finally see Dick, and him and Babs getting along so well :).
A bit too well. lol.

But at least in this preview, one question is answered. Hill had two sons and this was the older son, Junior, who was comforting his mother. In the comics, he was Deputy Mayor to Mayor Akins in Detective Comics around 2018-ish.

Seeing as we have to wait for the new B:TAC ''Season Two'' thread to be published, I may as well put this here for now.

I was just charged £3.19 ($4.52) for a chopped up, 10 page DIGITAL comic. Frankly, that's even too expensive for a complete digital issue. In the UK, we can buy two full physical comics for under £3.00. Who's charging these prices, DC or Comixology?

The release schedule for this thing is also sloppy and unprofessional. Dates gets changed at last minute. Solicitations are never properly updated. One day they want to release it in split chapters, the next it's the full issue, then back again.

Look, I want to support this comic, but I've just cancelled my digital subscription. This was the first comic I ever bought digitally and will no doubt be the last.

In an interview from this past Monday, J.M. DeMatteis spoke briefly about Justice League Infinity (1:01:50-1:05:47). He confirmed the main 7 appear, other characters you don't expect to see, there's new characters, very packed with characters, continuing threads from JLU i.e. certain relationships carrying on, set "maybe a couple years later". Additionally, at 1:00:35-1:00:40, he hints "The Return" feeds directly into the story.

Sounds like everything you could want from a continuation :).

DC Comics has released September solicitation details for Batman: The Adventures Continue, Justice League Infinity, and the new animated Harley Quinn mini-series. Head over to WF for the details!
I wonder if that cover with a flashback to the Wayne deaths will tie-in to the Court of Owls at all...

DCAU going Multiversity :p.

That HQ cover is perfect :p.

So I guess the Batgirl/Huntress story is a single-issue then. Interesting to see Montoya again after being basically a cameo for most of the book. I'm wondering if the Gray Ghost-themed cover will tie in to the story at all.

More multiverse fun! Kind of neat that we'll be seeing a more "traditional" Hawkman, plus Calvin Ellis.

I like the art style for the Harley Quinn series. Looks like Livewire might have a bigger role than usual.

Also, Devil Ray, who was invented for Justice League Unlimited to substitute for Black Manta, will be brought into the mainstream comics for BM's mini-series in September.

These are the titles DC needs More of.

We could certainly use more DC animation comics. I still think DC should've done at least a six-issue mini series to promote Young Justice Outsiders instead of a one-shot. They could still do something for Phantoms, at least.

Calvin Ellis! Interesting. And looks like Nubia and Ion, too!

Hmm, Gray Ghost. Wonder if that ties into the story. But a Renee Montoya story is welcomed.

During an interview, around 36:44 to 47:20, James Tucker talks a little about Justice League Infinity - he was first called about it well into the home quarantine of the pandemic, he wasn't sure about doing it at first - is it right to do it without McDuffie and Timm, what would the show have done, he recommended bringing in DeMatteis, DeMatteis did/does the lion's share of the writing, he describes his duties more like what he did as a producer on JLU - a consultant suggesting ideas, talking about the threads left hanging, this is how this can tie in, tweaking a line - rather than as a co-writer, watching JL vs. Fatal Five helped convince him to agree to do the comic, a bit of the paranoia from the pandemic translated into the comic.

Sounds interesting! And nice way to channel dealing with the pandemic :p.

I'm currently watching Alex Bale's video about Goofy Goober, and it definitely goes into strange places, but it's quite interesting to watch.
I'm currently watching the livestream for DC Kids Fandome on YouTube. Batwheels comes out next year, and apparently, Batman: Caped Crusader and My Adventures With Superman come out in 2023. There's also a scene from DC Superhero Girls 2019 of Diana asking Barbara to not be friends with Harleen, and we see the Joker. Hopefully, there's an article that talks more about this.



The winner of this matchup is Mickey's Tale Of Two Witches, which got 4 votes. The Book Of Life got 3 votes. Now we move to round 4, the final round. The matchup is between Scooby Doo On Zombie Island and Mickey's Tale Of Two Witche
