Everything returns in DC’s DC Nation animation block this Saturday morning, complete with new Green Lantern, new Young Justice, and a new Super Best Friends Forever short! Each of these are pretty awesome and have preview clips, so shall we?
? Green Lantern introduces Guy Gardner, voiced by Diedrich Baker, who is instantly and immediately a huge dick to Hal. It’s great.
? If you recall, Clone Speedy found the original Speedy in the last new Young Justice episode, and it looks like original Speedy is a touch worse for wear. I really, really hope a crippling heroin addiction is in his future.
? Lauren Faust’s fantastic SBF4E returns in short #4, in which Solomon Grundy refuses to fight the trip because they’re girls OH NO HE DIDNT. Incidentally, the new season of Clone Wars premieres too, for the record, having been moved to Saturday morning. You might want to stock up on some heavily sweetened cereal, because Saturday morning is gonna be pretty awesome. (Via ToyNewsI)
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.
