Hopefully a Volume 2 is in the works b/c I didn't see "Volume 1" marked on this set. And even though the tracklisting looks wonderful it's still missing some great scores e.g."Speed Demons" and that two part Lobo ep.,the Live Wire and Parasite ep. etc. With that said this set has the three part "Last Son Of Krypton" and "World's Finest" scores, as well as "In Brightest Day", the scores for the two part Supergirl ep, and the scores to all the eps featuring Darkseid as well.

More info on the release...

In the mid 90’s, as a companion piece to the wildly successful BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES, producers Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett and Paul Dini brought to life another DC Comic’s favorite SUPERMAN. Faster than speeding bullet, renowned composer Shirley Walker and her composing family hoped aboard the man of steel’s cape and gave a musical identity to Metropolis’ favorite boy-scout. This 4 cd set includes:

* More than 5 hours of music on 4 CDs.

* 20 full episode scores, including the epic 3-part Batman crossover "World's Finest”.

* Includes the Emmy-nominated score to "Little Girl Lost" by Lolita Ritmanis.

* Features Shirley Walker's original, unused ending for the series finale, "Legacy."

Big, bold orchestral scores were one of the highlights of this magnificent animated series. Liner notes by John Takis take the listener inside the great city of Metropolis with exclusive interviews with some of the composers. Art direction by Jim Titus is nothing short of SUPER!

As an added bonus Michael, Lolita and Kris have agreed to sign the first 300 units purchased directly through the La-La Land website at no extra charge. Quantities are limited and you are not guaranteed a signed copy.

It's a pity "Speed Demons" didn't make the cut on this volume, but hopefully it will on Vol.2.

As for future Batman titles, New Batman Adventures and The Adventures of Batman and Robin are in the works. Batman SubZero is also in the works. Batman Beyond, including Revenge of the Joker, might be coming but we are not 100% convinced there is enough of a market for it.

Not sure if Superman and JL would have done better starting as 2 CD sets and then jumping into larger sets.

I know that Superman TAS has nowhere near the fan base compared to Batman TAS though.

Batman volume 1 2 cd set was an interesting case because that's all that warner would allow us to do at the time. It took us years to to convince them to let us produce additional volumes due to changes in the legal department.

You people still do not get it. Batman the Animated Series is beloved by many more people than Superman or Justice League or Teen Titans. Batman the character outsells every other comic book character, with maybe the exception of Spider-Man, 2 to 1 in any product line.

The only possible way of doing another volume of Superman is to release it at a very limited edition of let's say 500 units and charge a premium for a multiple disc set that would complete the series but even then that's risky.
