Picture Window Books Announces Super-Pet Contest Winner

Picture Window Books Announces Super-Pet Contest Winner
Winning Characters to be Illustrated by Eisner Award-Winner Art Baltazar in Upcoming DC Super-Pets Book

Check out the winning entry:

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – April 18, 2011 – Picture Window Books, an imprint of Capstone, the leading publisher of children’s books and digital products and services, announces the winner of its nationwide student writing contest “My Pet is Super!” The contest asked children to write an article for an imaginary newspaper, The Daily Planet, about why their own pet is super. It was inspired by the publisher’s DC Super-Pets adventure book series featuring the crime-fighting pets of everyone’s favorite super heroes.

Cloey Nyberg, a third grader at Pyrtle Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., is the first-place winner selected from more than 450 entries. Cloey’s fictional characters, Luna Moon (a Beagle with super-sniffing talents) and Sprightly Steve (a Pomeranian/Chihuahua with lightning speed), will be featured characters illustrated by Eisner award-winning comic book artist Art Baltazar in a DC Super-Pets book. Cloey will receive the original illustration of her characters as well as copies of the book, available Jan. 1, 2012 in hardcover and paperback formats.

Cloey’s imaginary newspaper article was set in Metropolis Park where Luna and Steve used their combined super powers to save a group of third graders from a brush fire. The city mayor rewarded the canine duo for their heroic deeds with medals and a year’s supply of dog treats. To see the winning entry, visit

“Students took us on adventures from Los Angeles to Maine and we learned about the heroic deeds of all kinds of super-pets – from dogs, cats, rabbits, and gerbils, to pigs, goldfish, and even a vanishing chicken. We’re impressed with the incredibly talented kids who brought us such fun and well-written stories, and we can’t wait to begin working on the DC Super-Pets title with our two new characters Luna and Steve!” said Michael Dahl, Editorial Director of Capstone Fiction.

In addition to selecting a first place winner, Picture Window Books also selected the top 50 contest entries to receive two free DC Super-Pets books, one for the student and one for the school library.

The DC Super-Pets series launched in January 2011, through a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, with more titles to be published in August 2011 and January 2012. The series illustrator is Art Baltazar who won the comic industry’s top award, the Eisner, for his work on the kid-friendly Tiny Titans series. The DC Super-Pets series features the crime-fighting adventures of the pets of favorite super heroes from beloved DC Comics: Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. These intrepid Super-Pets—Krypto the Super-Dog, Ace the Bat-Hound, Streaky the Super-Cat, Beppo the Super-Monkey, Jumpa the Super-Kangaroo, and their friends—save the day and foil the evil plans of the universe’s most dastardly super villains (and their pets!).

DC Super-Pets is the second project Capstone and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, have collaborated on in recent history. The publishers launched a successful partnership in 2008 under Capstone’s Stone Arch Books imprint to publish DC Super Heroes, an original book series based around DC Comics’ iconic characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and the Flash.

Batman Live Revealed! OMG.

Yeah, well I've been waiting anxiously to see how Batman Live would look.  I know many of you have too.  We finally get ahold of some pics from their recent press unveiling.  Apprently its still 1997.  We'd love to hear your thoughts bat-fans!  The set looks cool...right?

Here is a press release from the event

Batman fans were able to get a glimpse at the sheer magnitude and scale of the BATMAN LIVE world arena tour today, as Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), DC Entertainment and Nick Grace of Water Lane Productions Ltd (WLP) unveiled key characters in a spectacular theatrical event in central London.

The Joker introduced his Arkham Asylum super-villains The Penguin, The Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, but they were all outshined by the world’s most loved crime fighting duo; Batman and Robin.

BATMAN LIVE is based on the story of young Dick Grayson (Robin), a circus performer who loses his parents to organised crime. Faithfully adapted from the DC Comics characters and stories, BATMAN LIVE focuses on Robin’s quest for justice, which leads him to follow in the footsteps of his hero, the mysterious vigilante known as the Batman – much to the dismay
of his protective guardian, millionaire Bruce Wayne – who secretly happens to be Batman.
This triangle resolves itself in a non-stop thrill-ride across Gotham City that transforms Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson into the legendary crime-fighters Batman and Robin and transports the audience from the Big Top of Haly's Circus to the lower depths of Arkham Asylum – from the glittering peaks of the Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge to the subterranean wonders that await inside the Batcave, which features a revolutionary, all-new Batmobile designed exclusively for BATMAN LIVE by legendary car designer Professor Gordon Murray.

A dazzling celebration of storytelling and stagecraft, BATMAN LIVE is at its heart an affecting coming of age story. Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson – both orphaned at an early age – must first learn to overcome their own fears and forge their own family – along with Police Commissioner James Gordon and Bruce’s trusted butler, Alfred Pennyworth – if they’re going
to survive the combined forces of Batman’s larger-than-life rogues gallery: The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.  BATMAN LIVE will tour arenas for the first time ever across the UK and Europe, beginning in summer 2011 and arriving in North America in August 2012. Opening in Manchester on 19th July 2011 and visiting Newcastle, Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Nottingham, Dublin and Belfast, tickets for BATMAN LIVE are on sale now.

BATMAN LIVE, a unique and innovative theatrical experience, is an arena spectacular that combines acrobatics, daredevil stunt work, illusions, and cutting-edge design to bring the adventures of Batman and Robin to life on stage for the first time in the characters’ history. BATMAN LIVE is written by Allan Heinberg, with the original story by Stan Berkowitz & Alan
Burnett, and Allan Heinberg. 

“The passion the creative team behind BATMAN LIVE shares for the character can be seen throughout every aspect of this production,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment. “And the storyline, the origin of Robin, is something that is going to create a truly unforgettable live show.”

Christopher Jones takes over art duties on Young Justice Comic!

 The Dc Comics solicits are out today, so we're beyond pleased to be able to now reveal some news we've been holding onto...our old pal Christopher Jones (artsist on the beloved Batman Strikes comic) has scored the gig as ongoing artist for the comic based on the Young Justice cartoon.  This comic, much like Strikes, will have its own story arcs and maybe even some character reveals.  There is more HUGE news with this comic to come, but that will have to wait.  In the meanwhile, please join us in congratulating our friend Chris and welcoming him into the Young Justice fan fold!


Campfire bonding continues as the members of the team share their background stories as well as their hopes and fears. But when do these team-building exchanges cross over into TMI territory? How about when Superboy tells everyone how he’s thinking of taking out Superman?

About The Films

Superman: The Original Theatrical Movie (1978) and Expanded Edition (2001)
A box-office smash, an Academy AwardĂ’ winner and a fan favorite since it first flew into theatres in December 1978, Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. At its heart (just as in three sequels) is Christopher Reeve’s intelligent, affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel.

Variety called Superman “a wonderful, chuckling, preposterously exciting fantasy.”
The movie’s legacy soared even higher when director Richard Donner revisited this beloved adventure 22 years later and integrated eight additional minutes into the film. Enjoy more footage of the Krypton Council, a glimpse of stars of prior Superman incarnations, more of Jor-El underscoring his son’s purpose on Earth and an extended sequence inside Lex Luthor’s gauntlet of doom. Reeve, Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give indelible performances that fuel the film’s aura of legend.

Superman II (1980 and The Richard Donner Cut)
“I thought the original Superman was terrific entertainment,” the Chicago Sun-Times’ Roger Ebert wrote, “and so I was a little startled to discover that I liked Superman II even more.” Unwittingly released from Phantom Zone imprisonment, three super-powered Kryptonian criminals (Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglas and Jack O’Halloran) plan to enslave Earth – just when Superman (Christopher Reeve) decides to show a more romantic side to Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). Gene Hackman (as Lex Luthor) also returns from the first film and with a top supporting cast, witty Richard Lester direction and visuals that astound and delight.

Superman II -The Richard Donner Cut delighted fans who, for years, had been imploring Warner Home Video to release the Donner cut. In fact, the director had already shot most of the Superman II footage during Superman: The Movie. But as production on the sequel continued, creative differences between the director and the film’s producers became irreconcilable and Donner left the project. Although Richard Lester was hired to finish production, he chose to make major changes to the film, leaving only vestiges of Donner’s original vision and concepts in the version of Superman II that was ultimately released to theaters.

Nearly thirty years later, Warner Home Video was delighted to grant the wishes of countless Superman fans. With this DVD release, Richard Donner had become the first director in history to be able to complete a film he left during production with nearly all his footage “in the can.” Adding back a substantial amount of that unused footage, the director has seen his original vision restored and brought to fruition.

Most notably, the “Donner cut” restores the Marlon Brando role, filmed for, but not included in the final theatrical release version of Superman II. The legendary Brando’s performance as Jor-El has finally been restored in key scenes that amplify the Superman lore and deepen the profound relationship between father and son.

With so many other changes, large and small, including a variety of Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman, this Superman II proved to be an eye-opening experience and an important addition to film history.

Superman III Theatrical Version (1983)
After Superman: The Movie’s epic storytelling and Superman II’s awesome battles, how could the first two hits be topped? In Superman III, meet Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor), a half-witted computer programming natural. For him a keyboard is a weapon – and Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his life. Christopher Reeve reprises his most beloved role, deepening his character’s human side as Clark Kent reunites with old flame Lana Lang (Annette O’Toole) at a Smallville High class reunion. And when Superman becomes his own worst enemy after Kryptonite exposure, Reeve pulls off both roles with dazzling skill. Incredible visual effects abound – but above all it has heart, heroism and high-flying humor. All in superabundance.

Superman IV The Quest For Peace Theatrical Version (1987)
Christopher Reeve not only dons the cape for the fourth time but also helped develop the movie’s provocative theme: nuclear disarmament. “For me, it’s the most personal of the entire series,” Reeve said. “It directly reflects what Superman should be, and should be doing.” Superman does a lot this time around. To make the world safe for nuclear arms merchants, Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) creates a new being to challenge the Man of Steel: the radiation-charged Nuclear Man (Mark Pillow). The two foes clash in an explosive extravaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, plug a volcanic eruption of Mount Etna and rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China.

Superman Returns (2006)
He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiancé and a Pulitzer for "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman." And Lex Luthor has a plan that will destroy millions - no, billions - of lives.

Filmmaker Bryan Singer (X-Men) gives the world the Superman it needs, honoring the legend everyone loves while taking it in a powerful new direction. Brandon Routh proves a perfect choice to wear the hero's cape, leading a top cast that includes Kate Bosworth as Lois and Kevin Spacey as Lex. And the thrills - from a sky-grapple with a tumbling jumbo jet to a continent-convulsing showdown - redefine Wow.
