Word from Comics Continuum is Robin will be joining The Batman family this fall on the Kid’s WB. Voiced by 14 year old Evan Sabara, of Malcom in the Middle and Chasing Amy fame, he will portray the Dick Grayson Robin in the Saturday morning cartoon. This is a change for Warner Bros./DC Comics, who last year at the San Diego Comic Con said Robin wouldn’t appear in The Batman as he had other duties with the Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans. Sabara will join Rino Romano (Batman) and Danielle Judovits (Batgirl) to help craft the stories of Batman’s early years.

Fans of Electric Tiki Design, who for years have created statues and maquettes of some of the most well known cartoon, comicbook, and movie/television celebrities, will not have their own booth at the San Diego Comic Con this year.

San Diego Comic-Con Diary Day 2
Today was a day filled with DVD, movie, and television related panels. We sat through many of them, and got a two for one to boot.The program printed by the comic convention folk is sometimes misleading and sometimes very unclear. Such was the case with this morning’s first panel on the new releases from Anchor Bay Entertainment. If you have followed my articles over the years, many of you know my weird fandom (obsession some may call it) with Charisma Carpenter. When I saw her name listed as appearing to discuss new DVD releases, I knew we had to be…
San Diego Comic-Con Diary: Day 1
Yes, the headline says it all, the husband and wife duo of Stephen and Chada did win big today, but you’ll have to read on to find out how.
New releases and a few surprises
Chada and I went down to the convention center and signed in. Then we waited in line for THREE HOURS to get into preview night. While Chada was bored out of her mind (mainly because I forgot to bring the PSP with us), we were both glad we waited.
and so it begins… Got to San Diego for the motherload of all comicbook conventions, and we’re already tired! Walked about five miles in the SoCal heat and it took its toll on poor Chada. We’re taking off in a few minute to go sign in and check out Preview Night. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the biggest geek fan in the world and 1 being mild mannered Clark Kent, I would say I fall around a 7. Not strange enough to dress up, but goofy enough to get really excited about running around with…
