DRINKY CROW

Comics2Film has an interview with creator Tony Millionaire about the new Adult Swim series. "When I started on the comic strip I realized the further I would go the less editing I would get," Millionaire said. "When it got to Adult Swim, we started making the show. We were like, 'OK, we're gonna have to tone it down a little because it's for TV.' And they said, 'No! Tone it up!'"

THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD

Speaking of animated adventures, CBR News has an interview with story editor Michael Jelenic. "Because we've seen Batman so often, we made a concerted effort to say, 'We don't need to see him in Gotham. We've already seen hundreds of episodes in Gotham, and we've already seen hundreds of episodes of Alfred coming into the Batcave to deliver some food or Commissioner Gordon turning on the signal.' We decided not to focus on those aspects of the character, and it allows us to bring in different characters to fill those roles."

Series premiere: this weekend
