Bruce Timm In Person

Those of you living near Los Angeles want to check this out, Bruce Timm Live at the Egyptian Theatre:




Sunday, January 29 – 6:00 PM

ANIMATION A-GO GO: A NIGHT WITH BRUCE TIMM.

From Buster Bunny to The Dark Knight, this one-night tribute spans Timm’s gallant career in animation, comprised of his favorite episodes and clips from "Batman: The Animated Series", "Justice League", and other personal picks. Complete with never-before-seen rarities that you won’t find on any DVD, as well as some other very special guests, think of this as a Comic-Con education in the comfort of an air-conditioned theater (minus the blood, sweat, and crowds). Bruce Timm will appear for discussions in-between clips and an extended Q&A after the program, moderated by animation writer Jon M. Gibson.



The Egyptian Theatre is at 6712 Hollywood Boulevard in HOLLYWOOD


DIRECTIONS: The address of the Egyptian Theatre is 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, between Las Palmas and McCadden, just east of Highland Avenue in Hollywood. Selma Avenue is just south of the theatre.

Dwayne McDuffie.com Under Reconstruction

Be patient with me, folks. I've begun the process of sprucing things up around here. I'm implementing a slightly modified, but much simplified look that you'll see everywhere except on the news page, mainly because I haven't figured out how to swap it out yet. Meantime, let me know about broken links, missing images and the like as you run across them. I'm still transferring a lot of pages over to the new format, so some pages are placeholders, some haven't been reformatted yet and some are completely missing (like the "Search" function). But I'm working on all of it...

Here's a link, in case you came here first...

JLU News



Courtesy Comics Continuum:

The Legion of Super-Heroes will be featured along with Supergirl in an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited. In the episode, Supergirl is kidnapped to the 31st century for what the history books say was her last adventure. The Fatal Five appears, as do more than 20 Legionaires. Among the Legion members in the episode are Brainiac 5 and Bouncing Boy.

The Legion's appearance has nothing to do with the Legion show in development at Warner Bros. Animation.

In other Justice League news,

* Toonami UK has provided a hint at upcoming events in a recent release promoting its January programming. It mentions "a two-part series finale" that "reveal the real reason behind all the super-villain's recent attacks and lead to the most unexpected team-up in Justice League history."

* Mark Hamill, who returns to the role of the Trickster 14 years after playing him in The Flash TV series in the "Flash and Substance" episode, will have a "meaty role" in that episode, The Continuum has learned.
