Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2: With Gotham City back under his watchful eye, and accompanied by able sidekick Robin, Batman continues to battle crime – but his resurgence awakens a far worse evil at Arkham Asylum: The Joker. In the meantime, Superman has been dispatched by the President to halt Batman’s unsanctioned reign by whatever means necessary. Between the Joker’s diabolical scheme to drag Batman to the darkest levels of insanity, and the Man of Steel’s seemingly invincible physical presence, the Dark Knight must confront adversaries and allies simultaneously while maintaining the peace in Gotham City.
Primetime television stars Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost) and Mark Valley (Human Target, Fringe) join the voice cast of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 as The Joker and Superman, respectively, and popular talk show host Conan O’Brien gives voice to animated talk show host Dave Endochrine. Fanboy favorite Peter Weller (RoboCop, Dexter) continues as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and he is once again accompanied by David Selby (The Social Network, Dark Shadows) as Commissioner Gordon, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Carrie/Robin, and Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap) as Dr. Bartholomew Wolper. Also featured in the voice cast is Maria Canals-Barrrera (Wizards of Waverly Place) as new Commissioner Yindel, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lana Lang, and Radio Hall of Fame member Michael Jackson as Alfred.
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on January 29, 2013.

FoxTrot creator Bill Amend appears at Barnes & Noble to discuss and sign copies of his work on Saturday January 19, 2013 at 2:00 PM. Come to see him demonstrate his technique and pick up a copy of his newest collection!
FoxTrot is a comic strip centered around the chaotic Fox family with its three kids, two parents and a perpetually hungry pet iguana. While just about any topic is possible fodder, the humor in FoxTrot tends toward the geeky, with occasional forays into the super geeky. FoxTrot began its published life April 10, 1988 as a seven-day-a-week newspaper strip. It started with about 70 client papers and creeped up to about 1000 at its peak.
