Announcing "The Ultimate Super Friends Companion"

Mr. Will Rodgers, who's been a part of BRBTV for a few years now, has always loved the Super Friends. He used to have his own website dedicated to the classic cartoon, which ran from 1973 through the rest of the '70s and well into the '80s. Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Wendy and Marvin and Wonder Dog, the Wonder Twins ... They are an indelible part of our pop culture. Even the younger kids these days can understand the phrase "Wonder Twin powers -- activate!!!" right?

Now Will has blessed the BRBTV family of products with all of his expertise in print form (well, electronic form right now -- print edition to come later). It's the fifth big book in the main BRBTV fact book series. It's "The Ultimate Super Friends Companion," and it's an amazing, meticulous and very thorough analysis of all incarnations of this Saturday morning TV show. In this mammoth Kindle book, you'll find lengthy synopses and commentary to each and every one of the 208 episodes and lots of other goodies:

• A character profile of each hero and villain
• A guide to each one of the 47 Super Friends comic books
• A look at the toy lines associated with the series
• Biographies of the voice cast
• An index of the episode appearances for each hero and villain
• Retrospectives of superhero teamups over the years and the history of DC and Warner Bros. classic animation

You may recall that Will's moniker is "The Voice Man," and for good reason. "Dukes of Hazzard" cast members have even called him "The Voice of Hazzard" because of his extremely talented renditions of the "Dukes" characters. Will works as a radio host by day, but in his off-hours you can hear all kinds of cool TV-related characters coming out of his vocal cords. He's geeky-cool, and we're glad to welcome his "Super Friends" guide to the BRBTV family!
