JLU Season 2 on DVD June 20

Courtesy World's Finest:

Hot off the heels of the Teen Titans and The Batman Second Season announcement, WHV has revealed to The World's Finest the release date for two more upcoming sets: Superman the Animated Series: Volume 3 and Justice League: The Complete Second Season. These two releases will hit simultaneously on June 20th, 2006 and will finish up the respective series on DVD.

This will certainly be welcome news for fans who didn't want to wait too long to purchase the second season of Justice League, which will be released in it's original widescreen aspect ratio.

Stay tuned for further details on these sets in the coming months.

Dwayne At Wondercon

I'll be at Wondercon San Francisco Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11.

On Saturday, February 11th, 1:30 to 3pm at the Moscone Center, room 2018, I'll be doing the Animation Writing panel advertised as featuring Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Mark Evanier, Adam Beechen and Stan Berkowitz. It looks like Mark Evanier won't be able to make it, and I'm a feeble, last minute replacement (by the way, if you haven't visited Mak's incredible blog, you're missing out big time).

In any case, Justice League Story Editor Stan Berkowitz promises "lots of news of upcoming projects as well as a lengthy Q and A session."

See some of you there?

I'm Quoted in ABC News Black History Month Article

I'm briefly quoted in an article over at ABC News about Black history month.

Black History Month: Does It Fuel Racism?

Black History Month has its roots in 1926, when historian and scholar Carter G. Woodson launched Negro History Week to bring attention to the contributions of black people to American history.

He chose the second week of February to recognize black history because it marked the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Negro History Week ultimately became Black History Month. Woodson had hoped, however, that one day the need to have a special recognition of black history would be eliminated and that black history would be fully recognized as fundamental to American history.

Just a heads-up.
