Back in 2010, WaterTower Music paid tribute to the myriad sounds of DC Comics with The Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection. It featured the iconic, influential work of master composers like John Williams, Shirley Walker or Hans Hammer, the retro kitsch of 1966’s Batman or 1973’s Super Friends or the poppy, irresistible hooks of the recent DC Super Hero Girls.

Now six years later, WaterTower Music has put together a sequel, [easyazon_link identifier=”B01FW8MO4O” locale=”US” tag=”bounintocomi-20″]The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2[/easyazon_link], featuring 29 songs from beloved movies, television shows, games, and radio shows including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,Batman: The Animated Series, Superman, Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Dark Knight Rises, Supergirl, Gotham, and The Flash.
