DC Nation Super Spectacular[edit]

Starting in May 2012, DC Comics released a 64-page monthly magazine called DC Nation Super Spectacular. The featured strips are based on the Young Justice & Green Lantern: The Animated Series television series as well as additional content such as behind the scenes features.[32][33]

Latin America[edit]

Currently, the DC Nation Shorts have been transmitted by Cartoon Network (Latin America) since July 2013. The series are transmitted randomly in commercial breaks and it has broadcast shorts this way for years. The reason is because shorts not transmitted within the DC Nation block since Cartoon Network Latin has not been incorporated into the DC Nation block.

The shorts currently being broadcast are Tokyo/Baby Superman, DC Super Pets, Animal Man, Vibe, and most recently The New Teen Titans.
