What items could be in store for us? Hard to say right now. We’ve heard a few things about a few things. But nothing we can confirm, or show right now. We’ll all have to be content with conjecture, custom, concept, and wishlist stuff for the time being.

    Now if only Fox, WB, DC, and Dozier’s estate could come to some sort of agreement to release the series on home video. Of course, there’s all sorts of legal snares with the actor cameos ( particularly showing up in character ) and even the music. I’d rather not see it on DVD/bluray at all if it’ll end up being heavily edited crap.

    I think we’re going to be pleasantly surprised on this front pretty soon.
