Love That Joker - Animated Dark Knight Returns Pt 2, Harley's Joker Web Series, Killing Joke Statue & Sideshow 12'" Figure

Part 2 of DC's animated adaptation of Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns is available today on DVD/Blu-ray. Joker is the featured villain of the second half of the story and he's voiced by Michael Emerson this time. Which is a pretty cool choice - even if I can never help feeling the Joker's voice is just not right in these animated offerings when it's not not Mark Hamill's.

Here are a couple of Joker-centric clips via

Meanwhile In Other Joker Related News...

The incredible (an yes - I'll say it - THE BEST) Joker cosplay artist Harley's Joker will be playing
the Clown Prince of Crime in The Batman Chronicles - a web series seeking fan support at Indiegogo.
Check out the teaser and give the project your support if you can.

 ...and lastly here are a couple of upcoming must have Joker collectibles.

I saw this impressive Kotobukiya statue based on The Killing Joke on display at NYCC back in October.
It was large and highly detailed - but I had no idea it also includes awesome light & sound features.

And the 1/6th DC Comics likeness Joker Action Figure from Sideshow...
... just looks incredible.

The pilot began shooting this week! With cryptic photos being shared by the freshly launched Official Facebook Page, Official Twitter, Marvel's Agent M, and random civilian truck spotters as well.

So now might be a good time to stock up on S.H.I.E.L.D. gear before the rest of the world catches on.
We Love Fine really has the best selection - with some epic designs by Timothy Lim, Heather Hezaa,
and Erebus Odora, as well as a sweet logo messenger bag with bonus pins.

Hartter's Star Wars/Trek Retro BG Card Tribute to THE NEWS

This is the epic piece Sean Hartter did for Entertainment's fan art tribute
to the big official announcement of J.J. Abrams getting the Star Wars Sequel directing gig.
I'm always a huge fan of Sean's rad art anyway - but the Bubble Gum Card style really
speaks to me - as the Topps Cards were my very first Star Wars collection back in the day.

And just because it's cool - here's some more groovy Star Wars art from the Hartter Blog
