    I'm pretty sure these GNs from DCSHG proved to DC that content for children was worth investing in and as a result we have them diversifying formally with DC Ink for elementary and DC Zoom for middle school ages. I forget which GN but I think total sales rivaled Killing Joke in historical sales or something amazing crazy like that.

    The "Teen Titans Crew?" Huh. I wonder if it'll be made up of the Titans members who are already prominent in the cast (Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg, maybe Raven) and we'll see their origin in a webisode or other characters :)?

    I was wondering when Brainiac would be making a comeback :eek:.

    I guess this is the kind of franchise where you have to re-learn "the true meaning of friendship" every now and then, but it still seems kind of weird to think that Bumblebee would be the one who has to do it :sweat:.

    2/8: Yeah, that threw me off when I saw 'Teen Titans' in the synopsis. But considering how Birds of Prey was just Black Canary's band before she went solo, stay wary, imo.

    2 new characters in the next one, presumably Search for, I'd bet on them being Aquaman Family characters but with Brainiac in the mix, could be some prior prisoners of his that get released in the course of the story.

    2/10: Fontana confirmed Raven is returning this year.

    Kubina also posted the cover for Search for Atlantis and revealed she did two versions, not knowing which one they picked until now.

    The PR blast should come late February/late March and should reveal a few.

    Shea Fontana interviewed about Date with Disaster but at the end she reveals Aquaman appears in Search for Atlantis. He's indeed the king and gets rescued by the girls.

    I wonder if he'll be around Mera's age...

    Hopefully... like Wonder Woman and Steve are and not like Lois and Superman.

    DC posted the entire DC Zoom/DC Ink panel from the American Library Association Midwinter Denver panel from the 9th. Shea Fontana talks about DCSHG at around 16:40 to 18:18.


    Search for Atlantis
    • Introduces Mera (or I guess now continues unless this is the origin story of how she joined SHH)
    • The story is from Bumblebee's POV
    • Is about the dynamics of a circle of friends and accepting change when new people come in
    • Your best friend forever isn't so unless you work on it
    Fontana also recalled there is almost 80 DC characters in the show bible.

    I'm curious if Mera joining SHH will be in either this or the movie, as you alluded to in the Webisode thread o_O.
    It'll be nice to see Bumblebee in the spotlight :).
    Probably something a lot of people can relate too ;).
    I'm curious what they have down for all the characters who never get any speaking appearance.

    Like, is there a whole character descriptions and background for cameo-wonders Mary Marvel and Dove :p?

    There are couple of them in the SHH Yearbook that released some time ago, including Mary but she's actually Shazam in this continuity.

    When I heard about this movie, I thought that it would involve the villains of the show's Lego world opening a school for them. Instead, it's about the more morally ambiguous Heroes of Super Hero High being unwitting pawns. This still holds promise though.

    It's nice to see Jessica in a major role alongside the female Trinity in this :).

    I wonder who that redhead in black is? I feel like she'll probably be one of the actual villains, but I can't place her...
    And who are traditionally villains outside this franchise, for double the irony :p.

    I could see that being her, though you'd think that they'd have her in green if it was...
