Product Spotlight: Batman: The Animated Series Volume 3 CD



LIMITED EDITION OF 3000 UNITS


Music by Shirley Walker, Carlos Rodriguez, Peter Tomashek, Todd Hayen, Harvey R. Cohen, Michael McCuistion, Lars Clutterham, Stuart Balcomb, Mark Koval, Lolita Ritmanis, Richard Bronskill, Tamara Kline, Carl Johnson, Steve Chesne and James Stemple

About the CD: La-La Land Records, Warner Bros., Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics proudly present BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES: VOLUME 3, a limited edition 4-CD SET of unforgettable musical moments from the acclaimed BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES. These remarkable scores are game-changers in the world of television animation music, packing supercharged thrills, chills, action and drama within an emotional, musical whirlwind that rivals most blockbuster film scores. Music from such notable episodes as ROBIN’S RECKONING, ETERNAL YOUTH, DAY OF THE SAMURAI, MUDSLIDE, THE CLOCK KING and more are presented here in a knockout compilation with a combined running time of more than five hours! Produced by John Takis and Neil S. Bulk, and mastered by James Nelson, this limited edition of 3000 units features a 36-Page booklet bursting with amazing images and in-depth liner notes and analysis by John Takis. The heroic art design by Dan Goldwasser compliments this impressive volume with gothic flair.


Our Take: This is the third volume in the La-La Land Records series of Batman: The Animated Series show scores!  I cannot believe we're lucky enough to have gotten this far!  The music is as much of a part of Batman: TAS as the animation or script and the cinematic score is brought to us even more in-depth in this third volume.  This one is a super limited edition and is well worth the money!  This absolute must have for any serious Bat-fan!

The package also includes a Behind the Scenes featurette.
 
“Young Justice: Invasion” finds our heroes five years into the future – and a lot can change in five years, as our super heroes are about to find out. First, there’s some new residents to be found at Mount Justice: new team leader Nightwing, Wondergirl, Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Bumblebee and Beast Boy. And Young Justice will need all the help it can get as an alien presence has infiltrated Earth, while certain members of the Justice League are forced to stand trial at the criminal hearing off-world. Watch as The Reach, spearheaded by the quick-talking Ambassador and backed by the muscle of Black Beetle, manipulates a trusting public while maintaining its shadowy maneuvering with The Light. This is a grand 20-episode adventure as the risks have never been greater and the conflicts never so far-reaching – and the epic finale will shatter everything you know!

The most seasoned animation fan can find plenty of WAC and WAI offerings to their liking, running the gamut from Blu-ray releases of recent super hero favorites like “Young Justice,” “Beware the Batman” and “Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” to classic 1950s and 1960s cartoons like Hanna-Barbera’s “Loopy Da Loop” and the landmark anime series “Marine Boy,” to the playful silliness of the 1980s with “Shirt Tales” and “Gilligan’s Planet.” All of these titles can be found at wbshop.com.

Product Spotlight: Batman: Assault On Arkham CD

LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 UNITS

About the CD: La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics present the original motion picture score to the DC Universe Animated Movie, BATMAN: ASSUALT ON ARKHAM, directed by Jay Oliva and Ethan Spaulding. Acclaimed composer Robert J. Kral (GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, DUCK DODGERS, ANGEL) returns again to the DC Universe with a dynamite action/thriller score that is the perfect compliment to this action-packed tale, based on the hit video game series, in which Batman infiltrates The Suicide Squad, who have been tasked with killing The Riddler. Scored like a contemporary, urban crime thriller by way of the Batman universe, this is a great listen! Produced by Robert J. Kral and MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson, this is a special limited edition of 1500 Units features four exclusive tracks not available on the digital download version and liner notes from co-director Jay Oliva. Bat-riffic art design is courtesy of Dan Goldwasser.

Our Take:  Assault on Arkham may well be the best DC Universe film to date...its certainly one of the best.  This cool limited edition soundtrack to the film is a great accompanyment to the film.  Its a beautiful time to be a Batman fan, we get soundtracks to all of the Dc Universe films from La-La Land records!  This would've been a pipe dream a decade ago.  The CD also comes with four bonus tracks that you can't get anywhere else.  There are only 1500 copies in the world, so jump on picking this one up.  It'd make a great unique Xmas gift too.

MAD Magazine Presents "How To Read The HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1"

On October 29th, DC Comics is releasing the HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1. But this is like no other annual. This issue stinks! Seriously! 
HARLEY QUINN ANNUAL #1 arrives with “Scent-icular” technology featuring actual, honest-to-gosh real smells. Take a trip through Harley's world in a groundbreaking issue, where the scents — odors like, leather, pizza, suntan lotion and something called Cannibisylocibe 7-A — featured in the issue were chosen in an effort to capture the weird and wonderful world in which Harley lives. 
 
Check out the "Reading Instructions" below, running in DC comic books this week, compliments of the MAD team.  Read, rub and sniff at your own risk!

'Team Batfleck' Shirt Image is a Fake


Don't believe everything you see on the net Bat-Fans.  This pic was take on October 6th of a very bulked up Ben Affleck walking with his lovely wife.  The image with the plain shirt is the real one, the other clearly photoshopped.

NYCC: 1st Look at the Batman: The Animated Series / TNBA 6" Figure Packaging!


We get nice shots of the cardback and the stands for the highly anticipated upcoming Batman: TAS and TNBA figure line!  The stands have great black and white turnaround images of the characters.   Personally, I don't care for the packaging, which I'm happy about, because then I won't have any trouble busting these figures out for display!  Pics courtesy of Figures.com



Product Spotlight: Batman TV Logo Metal Bottle Opener


About the Product: Nananananana BATMAN! After a long day of fighting crime and a long night of doing the Bat-tusi, Batman needs to cool off with a frosty beverage. And now you can party like a superhero with this solid metal bottle opener in the shape of the iconic Batman TV show logo! This 4-inch opener comes packaged in a collector case with a full-color wrap. Designed by Barry Bradfield!

Our Take: The first thin that strikes me about this new bottle opener is the great packaging.  I'm still not used to the 1966 Batman merchandising, and its a lot of fun to see. When this one arrived I was struck immediately by how heavy it was.  I opened up the deluxe packaging and could not believe what a gorgeous and well-sculpted item this bottle opener is!  To be honest, I don't have a huge need for a bottle opener, but this magnetic sculpture of the 1966 Batman logo looks amazing on the fridge!  The pics say it all!  This one retails for around $18.

Product Spotlight: Young Justice Soundtrack CD



About the CD: La-La Land Pictures, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation present the original soundtrack to the Warner Bros. Animated Television Series YOUNG JUSTICE, as aired on Cartoon Network. Composers Kristopher Carter, Michael McCuistion & Lolita Ritmanis (BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN, TEEN TITANS, BATMAN BEYOND) fashion an exhilarating superhero score that is every bit as bold, fresh and exciting as this hit animated series. This compilation brings together must-have musical highlights of the show's first season, as well as the second season, YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION. Produced by the composers and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this is dramatic, action-packed music that makes for a thrilling standalone listen! CD booklet features reversible cover art and in-depth, exclusive liner notes by film music writer John Takis that contain comments from the composers and the animation team!

Our Take: If there is one great superhero cartoon that has captured the imagination of the fans over the past decade its without a doubt Young Justice!  The La-La Land records release of the music from the show covers both the first and second seasons. In fact, fans of the second season, dubbed "Invasion" can even reverse the cover art to reflect the season two cast.  The music on this one is dynamic and a great pleasure to listen to. I like to put this on in the backround while I'm organizing the ol' Batman toys!  The liner notes of this one are also a huge bonus.  It features pages of images and behind the scenes notes from the crew about why they crafted the music in the way they did.  Its a great read and an even better listen!  We highly recommend.
