Warner Hom Video has announced a March 1 release date for Wonder Woman: The Complete Second Season on DVD.
Here's how the collection is described:
"What's Wonder Woman up to now? Flash forward 35 years from her stirring Season-One adventures defending America in World War II. Without missing a beat, Wonder Woman leaps from the big-band era to the disco decade, still miraculously young and still using wits, wiles and astonishing powers to fight evil. Season Two (21 episodes following a feature-length season premiere) introduces Wonder Woman to a new America of nuclear power and computers. Teamed with Steve Trevor, son of the dashing major she worked with during World War II, she takes the name Diana Prince - and takes on all kinds of danger from terrorists, mad geniuses, crooks and even a diabolical rock star while working for America's Inter-Agency Defense Command."

DARKSTALKERS SELLS OUT
Less than a week after the launch of the Darkstalkers series on Nov. 24, UDON and Devil's Due have completely sold out of the first issue.
UDON has announced that the new Capcom-inspired series will be rushed back to press with Darkstalkers #1 Second Printing, shipping with a new cover on Dec. 8 at the regular price of $2.95.
"We are delighted that there is such a demand for a project that has been a true labor of love for the whole team," says UDON's Erik Ko. "Considering that Darkstalkers's strong appeal is not limited to Street Fighter and videogame fans, but anime and horror fans as well, we knew that the new series would garner a lot of interest.
"We were, however, caught off-guard with how much of an impact the cross promotion with the new game and store/print ads would have. Along with the new printing, we are encouraging retailers to increase their orders for upcoming issues, and hope to make them comfortable doing so by going back to press and keeping the first issue in print to capitalize on new readers both from inside and outside the comics industry.
"The Capcom titles will be very heavily promoted. We are planning on much more cross promotion with Capcom, and with the 10th Anniversary of Darkstalkers coming next year, the hype is on and this title will be one of those that will draw more fans back to the comic stores!"
IDW Publishing has announced it will be publishing Swallow: Book One. Swallow is a magazine from Ashley Wood devoted to modern illustration and the artists that produce it.
The debut issue of Swallow features some of the biggest names in modern illustration, as well as amazing new illustrators. The first issue features work by Ash himself, along with George Pratt, Celia Calle, Jeremy Geddes, Phil Hale, Team Kitten, Mike Huddleston and many more.
"This is the magazine I always want to find when I hit the racks, but don't," Wood said. "Great modern illustrators, extended folios‹no single illustrations here! Lots of pictures, that's what Swallow is about, period!"
Swallow: Book One is a full-color, 120-page magazine on sale in February.
