DKN Rewind: Top Five Stories of 2017

And the winners are…

Happy New Year! And what a year it was! We couldn’t have made it without you, our Batmaniacs! We at Dark Knight News thought it would be a great idea to count down the top five stories from 2017.

5. Jakks Big Figs Justice League Figures Are Coming!

By Kevin Gunn, Editor-in-chief

As an editor, it makes me proud when my writers spark great interest in their work. But as a writer myself, I am truly honored to be included in the top five. Say what you will about the movie Justice League, but the film’s marketing campaign was spot on. I’m sad to say that no one got me one of these for the holidays. It’s a good thing that my birthday is coming up in February!

4. Young Justice Season Has Already Begun Voice Recording

By Eric Lee, Staff Writer

Eric Lee is a phenomenal writer. It doesn’t surprise me that he broke the top five, especially when it comes to a story about Young Justice. Eric writes about actor Nolan North confirming that he started working in the studio on Season Three.

3. Junkie XL and Gary Clark Jr. “Come Together” For Justice League

By Eric Lee, Staff Writer

Another Eric Lee post! I love Gary Clark, Jr.’s rendition of this classic Beatles’ track. It definitely gets you in the mood to take on Parademons!

2. Sonic Drive-In Justice League Action Toys

By Sharna Jahangir, Staff Writer

Sharna Jahangir is also a great writer. She is also our only female staff writer (something I hope changes in 2018). Justice League Action is a great animated show, and Sonic Restaurants had toys based on the series. I wonder if they still have any?

And coming in at number one…

1. The CW Needs The Batman

By Chris Foti, Staff Writer

I challenged Mr. Chris Foti to an opinion post, and he delivered! He offered an in-depth argument on why Batman needs to make an appearance on a CW show. Several of you agreed with him, while some of you didn’t. Either way, Chris’ post made a compelling argument. Nicely done!

So, who will take the top spot for 2018? Did your favorite story (or stories) make the cut for the top five? Post your comments below and on our social media. And thank you for making Dark Knight News your sources for Batman related news! Oh, and again, Happy New Year!
