Animated LSH news 63: new designer, DVD cover

In good news, Warners has released the box art for Volume 1 of the LSH cartoon DVD. TV Shows on DVD has the artwork and text solicitation. The DVD comes out in August.

Kids WB! brings you a new series inspired by the DC Comics legend Superman. In LEGION OF SUPER HEROES, a team of superheroes from the 31st century head back in time to enlist Superman's help in battling their nemeses, the Fatal Five. But when they arrive in the Man of Steel's hometown, Smallville, they discover that they've miscalculated a bit. Instead of a powerful, confident Superman, they find the introverted, insecure young adult Clark Kent, whose abilities need fine-tuning. The legion itself is a group of well-meaning, undisciplined and unpredictable, super powered young adults who just happen to be the Universe's only hope. The Legionnaires are still light-years away from becoming the seasoned (and cynical) pros of the Justice League.

Meanwhile, character designer Derrick J. Wyatt mentioned on his blog today that he's moving from the Legion to another show for next season. You've seen his work on the background characters such as these guys:
