When Young Justice and Green Lantern: TAS finally return on September 29th, they won’t be alone… and they better watch where they step. The two cartoons will be joined by the Justice League of Animals, including Supermanatee, Wonder Wombat, and AquaMandrill, whose name I can’t even type without giggling uncontrollably, in a series of new DC Nation shorts. Honestly, DC, if you just want to cancel everything and give me the Brave and the Bold Aquaman / AquanMandrill Superhero Awesome Hour, I’d be totally fine with that. (Via Comics Alliance)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
