It’s been 15 years since Superman: The Animated Series wrapped up its three season run on TV. But this week, Mondo is paying tribute to one of the greatest animated superhero shows of all time with a special vinyl release.
Mondo has announced that the Superman: The Animated Series die-cut single will be released this Wednesday, September 9 with music by the late Shirley Walker and artwork by Phantom City Creative. The A-side of the Superman single will feature the following tracks by Walker.
- Superman: The Animated Series – Main Title (1:07)
- Superman: The Animated Series – End Credits (0:35)
- The New Batman / Superman Adventures – Main Title (1:05)
- The New Batman / Superman Adventures – End Credits (0:35)
The B-Side is a large screen-printed Superman “S” logo that will be available in two varieties: Red Vinyl or Kryptonite Green Vinyl. Mondo has also passed along a few photos of the Superman packaging and it is phenomenal.
“I wanted to make this a companion piece to my packaging design for Batman: The Animated Series
,” explained Phantom City Creative’s Justin Erickson. “While Batman is darker and more serious, Superman needed to be bright, colorful and energetic to reflect the tonal differences between the two.”
Walker composed the music for Batman: The Animated Series
before performing the same duties for Superman: The Animated Series
. Walker is widely regarded for setting the musical tone of the DC Animated Universe created by Paul Dini, Bruce Timm, and Alan Burnett. Walker also composed or co-composed the scores for Black Christmas
, The Black Stallion
, Escape From LA
, Mystery Men
, and the first two films in the Final Destination
