Giancarlo Volpe recently released a comic strip explaining animation focus groups on Tumblr. Initially, Volpe's comic shows he was optimistic about the information he would glean from the group, despite misgivings from executive producer Bruce Timm. The participating kids provided some interesting information, but the way the moderators interpreted their reactions and feedback was ultimately a source of frustration.
You can see Volpe's story below, including a conclusion inspired by the recent home video release of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
The series focuses on the adventures of Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern of Sector 2814, and his partner Kilowog. Hal Jordan travels to "Frontier Space" the region of space at the edge of the Guardians' territory, where Green Lanterns are being picked off by the Red Lanterns. Atrocitus, their leader, wants revenge for the destruction of his world by the Manhunters, the now-decommissioned android enforcers of the Guardians. After defeating Atrocitus, Hal and Kilowog adopt Razer, a maverick Red Lantern into their fold. Their next great threat is the Anti-Monitor, who seeks to literally consume the Universe.
