New Warner Product?

As I related a couple of days ago, Warner Bros. Animation has surged back to life after a lengthy hibernation. New series. New direct-to-video projects. The offices and cubicles at the studio are filled with artists busy at work.

I know that among the new works-in-progress at WBA are a number of super-hero projects (like around seven), but frankly, I pay minimal attention to specific new titles (I'm a union guy; sue me.) But now Comic Continuum reports on a new character being added to the roster:

DC Comics' Jonah Hex -- already featured in a live-action movie starring Josh Brolin next year -- will be the subject of an animated project as well, The Continuum has learned.

Jonah Hex will be featured in a short from Warner Bros. Animation, written by Joe R. Lansdale.

And chimes in about old Jonah:

The character of Jonah Hex has appeared in animated projects in the past, including “Batman: The Animated Series,” “Justice League Unlimited” and “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” This time, however, Hex will ride solo without help from others in the DC Universe, following the lead of the self-contained films released thus far from the WB. Additionally, the “Hex” short will follow the PG-13 mold demonstrated by the other DC Universe animated projects.

I should really pay more attention to what's going on at each and every studio. But some weeks you just get overloaded, you know?

Wait, Warner Bros. is actually doing some television animation NOT related to Scooby-Doo or Batman!? Pinch me, I must be dreaming.
