Justice League: Origin, the Worst Way to Introduce the Justice League

7 November 2014 5:15 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justice League #1-6

Written by Geoff Johns

Pencils by Jim Lee; Inks by Scott Williams; Colors by Alex Sinclair

Published by DC Comics

Created as the flagship title of the New 52 and the opening arc for this new era of comics, Justice League “Origin” is a cringe-worthy retelling of the League’s beginnings. Despite having the talented Geoff Johns handling story and drawn by Jim Lee, Justice League “Origin” is a boring and underwhelming tale.

The story follows the expected Leaguers: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, and new regular Cyborg as they join together to form the Justice League. Unfortunately, all of these heroes present have been reduced to early to mid-twenty somethings in an effort to make them younger and more relatable. But this only serves to make the world’s greatest heroes a bunch of bickering idiots. Superman is a short-sighted brute, Batman talks down to everyone, »

Batman #686 and Detective Comics #853

Written by Neil Gaiman

Pencilled by Andy Kubert

Inked by Scott Williams

Colors by Alex Sinclair

Published by DC Comics

After Bruce Wayne’s death in Final Crisis, DC Comics gave legendary comics creator and novelist Neil Gaiman the chance to pen one “last” Batman story in the vein of Alan Moore’s Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?, which was the last Superman story before Crisis on Infinite Earths. Equal parts love letter and thesis statement, Gaiman and artist Andy Kubert open the comic showing the usual Gotham City skyline, but with the names of important Batman creators, like Bill Finger and Jim Aparo in the background. They attempt to cram in 70 years of Batman’s history in a two part comics story and succeed in showing what makes Batman tick and endure as a character and pop culture figure. Like Gaiman’s “The World’s End” arc, »

Graphic Review: Justice League: Trinity War

3 April 2014 1:56 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

DC Comics brings their latest event which unified its universe to the graphic novel format with Justice League: Trinity War. The cataclysmic battle crossed the pages of Justice League, Justice League of America, Justice League Dark, Trinity of Sin: Pandora, Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, Constantine, and the New 52 Free Comic Book Day Special for 2012. It was a colossal endeavor that brought together almost every character from every corner of the DC world.

Pandora has stolen her box back and is scouring the world in search of the perfect or imperfect soul to open it. She believes her actions will put an end to the evil she accidently released on humanity. The members of the three different Justice Leagues are at odds over whether or not Pandora can be trusted or knows what she's doing. Is she misled in her endeavors or can she really wipe the face of evil off the Earth? »
