ROBERT VALLEY'S WONDER WOMAN

The DC Nation block on Cartoon Network this Saturday includes a Wonder Woman short that comic sites are saying is the coolest take on the character in many years. The film was animated by Robert Valley, a Canadian artist who put his creative stamp on modern classics like Tron: Uprising, Aeon Flux, and the Beatles Rock Band promo film. Valley creates stylish cartoon worlds populated by tall and lanky characters who exude youthful attitude and energy. His Wonder Woman is a young baddass with a tricked-out Hot Rod that really puts a new spin on the classic (see clip below). This Saturday will also see the debut of the new cgi series, Beware the Batman, with designs by Shane Glines. DC Nation starts at 10 a.m. (eastern). Enjoy your Saturday morning cartoons! Interview with Shane Glines here.
