I’m going to try a little Super Best Friends Forever experiment here. Warner Bros. have put out some fantastic shorts during their DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network. They are evolving one of those into a series - Teen Titans Go! It’s almost a continuation of the old Teen Titans animated series but either way, sounds like fun. I know a lot of folks were hoping SBFF would also move on to a half hour series as well but from what I’ve been hearing, it’s not likely and my question is - why?
Warner Bros. don’t believe a “girls” show has the same selling power as a “boys” show and I’d like to prove them wrong. I’d point them to the huge successes that were Lauren Faust’sPower Puff Girls and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic were, I’d tell them women make almost all the purchasing decisions for their household (specifically entertainment), that they are seriously underestimating how much parents spend on their daughters, and that children aren’t the only consumers of animated TV shows and their related products. I could do that but what I’d like to see right now is all of YOU do that.
Reblog or like this post if you’d not only watch a Super Best Friends Forever television show but buy products based on it. (Money talks, remember?) Add your own commentary or not but let’s see what the numbers say.
A million billion times yes! I would love a longer/regular series of this. I’d love to see what Lauren Faust and team would do with a full episode, not just a short. I love the humor and the interactions between the three heroines and the contrasts shown.
So now that Red Robin is over I’ve been drawing some things here and there on the side and one of these said drawings is a supergirl piece that I did in rough pencils and handed it off to my friend Ian Herring (his blog here http://156thmongoose.blogspot.com/) to digitally paint to practice and to see a different look to my stuff. And here is the final product. Let me know what you guys think about it, I might make it into a print.
I love the light in this - and the cityscape in the background. Gorgeous <3
Ooh, this is the Supergirl I grew up with the long sleeves and short shorts. I’d be afraid how modern artists would draw it though — more emphasis on t&a, I imagine.
It’s also one of the DC’s old digests. I loved those when I was growing. You’d get a bunch of stories in one shot. I think that’s where I was first introduced to the Legion of Super Heroes. It was the closest I came to the older stories before I discovered the mysterious called “comic book store” and “back issues”.
