Over the Garden Wall Soundtrack To Be Released On Vinyl (Also Digitally)
Mondo Music will be releasing the soundtrack of Over The Garden Wall on Vinyl on Wednesday this week (21/09/2016), the album was originally released exclusively at San Diego Comic Con. The album features 32 tracks from the Cartoon Network’s Emmy award winning miniseries composed by The Blasting Company, the album also includes a 20 page song lyrics booklet, artwork by Sam Wolfe Connelly, as well as sheet music so you too can learn to play the songs from the mini-series.
A vinyl release is highly appropriate because of the late 19th century/early 20th century era the show was set in, also to quote Elijah Wood (the voice of Wirt) “If this show were a record, it would be played on a phonograph”.
For those who don’t want a vinyl copy of the soundtrack, Mondo Music will also be releasing the music digitally this Friday (23/09/2016) on iTunes, Amazon and Mondo Music’s brand new BandCamp page.

Justice League Action producers Butch Lukic, Alan Burnett and Jim Krieg spoke with comic book news website Comic Book Resources (and other members of the press) in a round-table interview at San Diego Comic Con 2016 two weeks ago. In the interview, Lukic, Burnett and Jim Krieg spoke about the upcoming DC Comics animated show, they mentioned that in the first season there will be a total of 152 characters (sixty superheroes, forty villians and the rest are supporting characters) and each episode will feature at least one of the main superheroes in the DC Comics franchise, either Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman.
The new show will be an action show combined with elements of comedy and will have an appeal to kids, mostly boys. Some of the episodes will be based upon existing comic book storylines, including a potential original Apokalips/Darkseid storyline which was mentioned in the interview, some of episodes will be based upon the producers’ favourite DC comic book issues.
