WBTVG will be parked in the convention center at a 2,400 square foot, multi-level must-see booth and will be sharing updates in the run-up to CCI and live during the show on Twitter (@warnerbrostv, #WBSDCC) and on a dedicated website (comiccon.thewb.com).

  1. I Hope TTG can end right now, because it’s not funny and it’s just an insult to the original show, and why do everyone think TTG’s our new favorite show NO! NO IT’S NOT CN YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!

    • >”It’s just an insult to the original show”
      It’s a deep, deep, DEEP parody of the original show that simply uses the characters. You people really need to stop thinking that it ‘insults the original’. You’re in the same position as the people who felt that Teen Titans insulted the original comics. Good job repeating the cycle.

      >”Why does everyone think TTG is our new favorite show”
      Obviously because the younger kids love it, and it was bringing in really good ratings. You DO realize that little kids are also a demographic, yes? You DO realize that TTG is marketed towards young kids, yes?

      But regardless, the series should be towards the end of its final third season by now. 39 of the requested 52 Season three episodes have aired so far, and the series hasn’t been renewed for a fourth series yet

      • And I hope it won’t be renewed for a 4th Season despite good ratings for younger kids and good voice acting.
