DC Collectibles has returned from Toy Fair, where their new line of action figures based on Batman: The Animated Series was a smashing success! While the figures won't be in stores until November, the Collectibles crew provided us with an in-depth look at the figures and what you can expect from them. (In short, plenty of articulation and accessories!)
Ask a Batman fan of a certain age what their favorite Batman movie is and there’s a good chance their answer is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. However, move down the age spectrum a bit and ask a younger Batman fan about the film and you may find that they haven’t even heard of it. While it’s not unusual for iterations of a long-beloved character like Batman to resonate most strongly with the generation they first appeared, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm seems to be a particularly unique case.
Welcome to Gothtopia! Die happy!
Meet the heroes of Gothtopia: Bluebelle, Eagle, Artemis and Warbler. Together, they form the Wings of Truth! Nothing makes a community happier than an acrobatic team tumbling through the air in a fun-filled children’s charity circus. But is everything really as clean, neat and tidy as it appears?
And what happens when Ra’s al Ghul gives Warbler, aka Black Canary, temporary immunity and makes her an offer she can’t refuse?
Gotham, the upcoming new Fox drama set early in the life of James Gordon and the young Bruce Wayne, has cast Matrix Reloaded and Madagascar star Jada Pinkett Smith in a surprising role.
That of gangster Fish Mooney.
A collection like no other!

Who’s that stopping by the DC office? Why, it’s none other than Paul Dini, and he’s just in time for Batman: An Animated Celebration! He’s here to discuss the new Batman: The Animated Series action figures, and he’s far from our only guest. Hart of Dixie’s Scott Porter shows off his awesome mobile mancave, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado discuss this week’s can’t-miss issue of Justice League, and we look at what happens when a Kryptonian gets her hands on a red power ring (let’s just say it ain’t good). Plus, Tiffany visits some of the DC landmarks on the Warner Bros.
