Another DVD came out a couple weeks back and I wanted to make sure to tell you about. Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics was announced out of nowhere back in July. San Diego Comic Con was right around the corner and the programming was released. Among the normal panels we would cover, I noticed a panel scheduled for Friday night for a screening of a film called Secret…

Boy was I dreading this one. Not the trip to San Diego, although this summer has been quite strange for the usually roasting Southern California coastal city, but the convention itself.
Heard way too many horror stories from various podcasters, bloggers and forum posts about how chaotic the scene was, the bad smells, crowds, and just about how this was the Super Bowl of geekdom. And while never having been in a Super Bowl site city at the same time as the Super Bowl, I do have a sense…

Last Wednesday we held the first ever Bat-Meet in San Diego. It was an opportunity for fans of not only the podcast and website, but also Batman to get together and meet up. Comic Con International happens once a year and when everyone from around the country converges on San Diego, it is an excellent chance to meet fans that you would never meet in person. The event took place a Dick's Last Resort. They had a screen showing movies and you would never guess what they were playing while we were there. The Dark Knight. I don't know…

You may remember the rumor that was floating around that WB was making an animated adaptation of Batman: Year One. Well, those rumors are correct. Bruce Timm confirmed this during an interview with us before the premiere of Batman: Under the Red Hood. After the film was premiere, the news was shared with everyone in attendance. Batman: Year One is slated for late 2011.
