My Childhood Show
When I was little, I watched this cartoon on Kids!WB every Saturday Morning and enjoyed it. It was a cartoon that wasn't like all the other cartoons and exposed us to a new superhero like Static. People who grew up with it will agree, this was a great superhero for a new generation and too bad Dwayne McDuffie is no longer here with us to see it up on ITunes. Check it out if you haven't and hopefully you'll enjoy it like I have. I'm 18 and still love it like I did so many years ago and it doesn't even feel that long ago. Plus a really cool theme song:)
I'm really hoping you guys release the entire series. This is an awesome, original, and shear-genius show that was created by an awesome person (Dwayne McDuffie), and it would be very disappointing to not see the rest of it released.
