You may have caught the promo for DC Nation during the Green Lantern premiere last week or all over the internets. If not, here:
This is a pretty exciting little thing because, not only does it feature and impressively varied array of DC Universe animated shorts, but it also ventures to put the comics out there a lot more publicly by featuring comic news and interviews with creators and the like. That's cool you guys.
And the shorts are already blowing me away. Aardman does a Creature Comforts-style Batman short? Doom Patrol gets animated, the Teen Titans return (in chibi form), some crazy dude puts a Batman sticker on his car, and--WAIT, WHAT? AMETHYST???
There is a freaking Amethyst short coming to DC Nation.
You can check out more at the animator's blog.
What I don't see a preview of is the Super Best Friends Forever shorts from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic creator Lauren Faust. (she's also co-creator of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, if that carries more weight with you)
I'm crazy excited for all of this. I love that they're willing to be weird and obscure with these. Well done, DC. Well done.
Now if only I felt like I could recommend more of their comics to the kids who'll be watching these.
