"The Laughing Bat" episode of Kids' WB!'s The Batman will have its network premiere on Saturday.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Donning the costume of his greatest rival, The Batman, Joker terrorizes all of Gotham. When the real Batman tries to stop him, Joker injects him with a poison that will cause him to laugh to death, unless he can come up with an antidote.

The episode was written by Michael Jelenic and directed by Seung Eun Kim.

Heroic Publishing has announced a January release date for the first issue of Roy Thomas's new alternate-reality World War II adventure comic book, Anthem.

Here's how Heroic describes the book:

"Anthem, by Roy Thomas and artists Daniel Acuna and Jorge Santamaria Garcia, is a darker saga of an alternate Earth, and of the super-heroes who were created to save it. In this world, Pearl Harbor wasn't just an attack by Japanese planes on a sleepy Hawaiian base. It was a full-blown assault on the US West Coast by Imperial Japanese forces spearheaded by a towering monster that could mop up the ocean with Godzilla, and on the East Coast by Nazi shock troops . . . and ray-firing flying saucers!

"Driven back into the American interior, the desperate US survivors spawned Project Anthem, creating a handful of young superheroes, some of whose powers and names reflected the words of "The Star-Spangled Banner": Dawns Earlylight, Amerindian super-archeress; Stars & Stripes, two twins with very special abilities; "Rockets" Redglare, a flaming human rocket; BombBurst, a very explosive warrior; Liberty, a living incarnation of the proud statue the enemy destroyed in New York Harbor; and Stonewall Jackson, a living being of rock from south of the Mason-Dixon line. Led by the mysterious Agent 76, they battle the forces that have conquered Europe and Asia and now mean to trample America as the last hold-out of freedom. And they've got the power to do it!

"Only thing is, the Axis forces have been devoping super-beings of their own, and they have an ace up their sleeve that will give even Agent 76 and the young heroes of Anthem a run for their money."
