So Infinity (w. Jonathan Hickman a. Jim Cheung, Dustin Weaver) concluded what’s been an interesting if not exactly mind-blowing run. The Avengers return to earth to sort out Thanos and his nasty mates, Maximus of the Inhumans cracks wise and saves the world and Rocket Raccoon makes an all-too brief (like, one panel appearance). The main point of the event seems to have been to launch the Inhumanity series – which to be fair, does look kind of interesting – but beyond that, I’m not sure what we’ve learnt. None of the characters seem to have radically changed from what I, as a pretty casual Marvel reader, understand to be their default personality setting to be. What happens to Thanos (and I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that yes, something happens to the primary antagonist in the last issue of a comic book series) is cool, »

Well, it seems after some initial confusion the New 52 universe is starting to come into its’ own. Zero Year is redefining the Bat myth and we finally have a comic featuring Harley Quinn that doesn’t make us apathetic, angry or squirm. In fact what we do get is a clever, self aware and generally quite fun comic. The narrative isn’t really important as nothing really happens until the last few pages. What is important is what happens that seems surreal or unreal and breaks the fourth wall.
To surmise; Harley is bored sat inside a storage unit. She’s chilling out, eating candy, drinking soda pop, reading comics and listening to disembodied voices. The fun really starts when she starts hearing the voices of her new writing team; Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Cue a riotous adventure, or adventures, as Harley is whisked from one hypothetical adventure to »

At 75, Superman remains the archetypal superhero and still relevant to comic books and the American people. When created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, he was an amalgam of the myths and pulps both boys devoured, a bit of wish fulfillment given how crappy their lives in Cleveland were. Little did they suspect their hero would become an icon for generations and become one of the most recognized figures around the world.
Zack Snyder attempted to bring that sense of gravitas to the is interpretation of Superman in this summer’s Man of Steel. The problem is, he made such a somber film that he totally drained it of the gosh wow feeling he was always intended to convey. He and screenwriter David Goyer made an interesting decision to make this a first contact story but both men should have remembered the sense of exhalation we got from the four-color comics, »

Yesterday, we heard from director Jay Oliva on Justice League: War and future animated feature film projects and today we have a few words from the man that's currently filling the shoes of Bruce Timm, James Tucker. On future animated films, specifically Wonder Woman, Tucker shared, "[WB would]have to have a movie out and it’d have to do really, really, really, really Really well for them to go back [and ask us for another animated Wonder Woman film]. You just never know. It hasn’t happened yet. But I would be all for it. As far as what we’re doing, we’ll probably do a Wonder Woman-centered Justice League movie. We’ll use the Justice League as an umbrella to focus on characters who might not be able to support DVDs of their own. That’s not my judgment, that’s based on sales. But yeah, we’ll handle Wonder Woman in our own way, regardless »
The Rocketeer/The Spirit: Pulp Friction #2
Writer: Mark Waid
Penciller: Loston Wallace
Inker: Bob Wiacek
Action. Adventure. Beautiful women with dimples on their cheeks. Rocketeer/Spirit #2 is stuffed full of nostalgia and clearly draws from the comics and film serials of the 1930s while adding deeper characterization and an interesting, if highly unlikely plot. Mark Waid loves pulp heroes and Golden Age crime fighters as evidenced by his work on Idw’s Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom and Dynamite’s Green Hornet so his dialogue and characterization are sharp. Loston Wallace’s art boasts clean lines courtesy of veteran inker Bob Wiacek (Uncanny X-Men, Iron Man), and his figure drawings are emotive and beautiful. His action scenes pack a punch too and are better choreographed versions of the Republic’s action serial movies.
Rocketeer/Spirit #2 begins and ends with nostalgia. The miniseries follows the Spirit as he »

> 'Man of Steel' Blu-ray, DVD release announced
Having premiered at the New York Comic-Con this past weekend, Warner Bros. Animation has now officially released Zack Snyder and Bruce Timm's animated Superman 75th Anniversary short, and you can watch it right here...
In honor of the hero's 75th anniversary, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and DC animated universe maestro Bruce Timm have crafted this two-minute animated short, which blasts through the highlights of the character's many incarnations, from comics, to movies, video games, and even pop art.
The short, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, begins with an extreme close-up of that classic car-lifting cover from Action Comics #1, which Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created in 1938, while the familiar build-up to John William's triumphant theme from the 1978 movie thrums on the soundtrack. The music eventually merges with Hans Zimmer's theme from this summer's Man of Steel, with Zimmer scoring and orchestrating the combination himself, using an 80-piece orchestra. »

Superman! For seventy-five years now he's confused birdwatchers and air traffic controllers alike as he's zoomed around battling evil and falling in love with women who have alliterative names starting with 'L'. Like Lois Lane, Lana Lang, Lori Lemaris... Llllovely.
Yes, it's been a busy three quarters of a century for the Last Son of Krypton, and to celebrate it Zach Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: Tas) produced a two-minute flypast of Superman's history. It went down rather well when it premiered at New York Comic Con last week and no wonder. It's a beautiful salute to Supes, but also to the artists and actors who've brought him to life across the decades, as the animation style seamlessly »

Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short
- Justin Vactor
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel, Warner Bros. has put together a rather snazzy animated short that incorporates basically all of Superman’s most memorable incarnations over the years — yes, including that time when they killed the Big Blue to sell a lot of comics shake things up. And when you’re Superman and you have 75 years of history, that’s a Lot of memorable visuals, from his early days in comics to Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” with Henry Cavill to choose from. The short itself is from Warner Bros. Animation, and is apparently the combined work of Zack Snyder and D.C. animated mainstay Bruce Timm (of “Batman: The Animated Series” fame, among many others). Obviously the treat here is to pick up all of the homages, though I didn’t know Superman used to be a pretty crappy side-scrolling game. Wow, what was that, »

"Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder and DC Animated Universe mastermind Bruce Timm teamed up to create this short looking at 75 years of Superman across comics, television, film, and games all the way from the character's first appearance in print to his most recent cinematic outing and reinvention in the New 52.
The short made its debut over at Entertainment Weekly, who spoke with Snyder and Timm about the origins of the project, the brainchild of Snyder, according to Timm. “We had approached [Snyder] about maybe doing a short for the DC Nation program on Cartoon Network. He said, ‘I’ll think about it,’ and then he had this idea to do basically the entire history of Superman in, like, a minute. We said, ‘Okay … whoooo.’ We started working and quickly realized there was no way to do it, even in a minute.”
The two-minute length means Timm and »

For those who don't know, it's Superman's 75th anniversary, and to commemorate The Big Blue Boy Scout, Warner Bros. Animation teamed up with Man of Steel director Zack Snyder for a cool little animated short that quickly and cleverly covers the expansive pop culture history of Superman. With help from "Superman: The Animated Series" creator Bruce Timm, this short starts with the hero's debut in Action Comics #1 and moves through things like "Super Friends," the big screen adventure in Richard Donner's 1978 film Superman, the popular series "Smallville" and, of course, this year's Man of Steel. Here's the Superman 75th Anniversary animated short from DC Comics: Even though this is only two minutes, it's packed full of Superman goodies, and that animation is just spectacular. Of course, not all of Superman's history gets the spotlight, as Timm points out, "There was just too much stuff. So we »

To celebrate Superman turning 75 (!), Warner Bros. Animation has teamed up with "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder and "Superman: The Animated Series" co-creator Bruce Timm to create a nifty piece of animation that, in the span of just two minutes, covers a whole lot of that 75 years, mixing both traditional hand-drawn and computer generated animation, and making your heart leap out of your chest in the process. Prepare to feel like a little kid again (for two minutes). The short, of course, begins with Superman's first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 (way back in June 1938), this dazzling short chronicles the character's evolution, and not just in comic book form, although there is a lot of that. You get to see the character take on the animated guise of George Reeves, who portrayed the character for nearly a decade, as well as the character's appearance on the Saturday morning cartoon "Super-Friends, »

Whenever we first talked about Man of Steel director Zack Snyder producing a short retrospective for Superman.s 75th anniversary, it was a couple of weeks before the film was released and Metropolis got utterly destroyed. Then all the news about Superman and Batman coming together for Man of Steel 2 came out, and then we found out Ben Affleck was going to play Batman, and all of a sudden this 2-minute animation was the farthest thing from my mind. But now the clip is here, and it is, in a word, super. Snyder worked with Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and Warner Bros. to create this fascinating and fluid trip through each style changing iteration and form of media of Superman.s evolution. Beginning with the iconic first appearance in the 1938 debut issue of Action Comics, we follow Supes into the Fleishman cartoons of the 1940s, which were »
