TV star Justin Chambers stars as the Flash with Kevin McKidd voicing the role of Flashpoint Batman. Watch the trailer then read on to find out more about the film.
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman's Atlanteans. »

Check out the official synopsis, followed by the trailer below:
"When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for The Flash and his family, the ripples of the event prove disastrous as a fractured, alternate reality now exists where a Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Teaming with a grittier, more violent Dark Knight and Cyborg, Flash races to restore the continuity of his original timeline while this new world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans. With breath taking action and an all-star voice cast, it's a bold, emotional vision that will forever change the landscape of the DC Universe. »

Picking ten artists out of the vast array of talent working in comics today is an impossible task. These artists were chosen based on the uniqueness of their style compared to the “house” style of Marvel and DC, their ability to create character, setting, and plot through their art, and also on the quality of the covers that they’ve done. All of the artists on this list have regular interior work so artists like J.H. Williams, Bryan Lee O’Malley, and Alex Ross can’t be found here (even though Alex Ross’ Justice League is the cover image). Without further ado (and in honor of the late Wizard magazine), here are the top ten hottest current artists in comics in no particular order.

With 2013 being the 75th anniversary of Superman and Man of Steel scheduled to come out this summer it was a forgone conclusion DC would release their emblematic direct to home media animated feature this year. DC certainly has been more successful than their marvelous competition at translating their classic stories to this format. Superman: Unbound however, ends up being a mediocre entry for this franchise. With a limited scope and a stereotypical plot it adds nothing to the Superman mythos. It feels less like an extended feature and more like a pilot episode of an upcoming television series. The animation and voice acting are both handled with care, but neither is given that much to work with. The »

Trevor Hogg chats with Stephan Franck about an original film idea which transformed into a debut graphic novel series and led to the formation of his own comic book publishing company...
“When I was a kid in France, my parents had a store, which sold a whole bunch of stuff including books, newspapers, comic books,” recalls Stephan Franck, a veteran writer/director/animator who has worked on such as films as Despicable Me (2010) and The Iron Giant (1999). “I loved hanging out there. Early on, I got into the European comics, Tintin, Lucky Luke, and a lot of more obscure but awesome detective series like Tif & Tondu. Then when I was around nine or ten, I discovered the American comics; that was in the late 1970s but there was no real rhyme or reason to how those comics were distributed in France, so you would have Bronze Age Jim Aparo Batman »

Looks like it is just Interview Central around here these days, folks. Because following up on last week’s column, in which I briefly recapped my Awesome Con DC experience and posted my interview with the fantastic Phil Lamarr (go read/listen if you missed it last week! Good stuff!), I now get to share with you my Awesome Con DC interview with the excellent Billy West! Hooray!
Even if you somehow haven’t heard the name Billy West, before, I almost guarantee you’ve heard his voice. Voicing everything from classic cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Woody Woodpecker, and Popeye to four of the main characters on Futurama (Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, and Zapp Brannigan), Billy has voiced characters on a myriad of other shows as well, including title characters for Nickelodeon’s Doug and The Ren & Stimpy Show; and is also »

With the recent announcement of intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo coming to "Injustice" as the first Dlc character, we got to thinking about others who would be a great fit for developer Netherrealm Studios' DC Universe fighting game.
After the jump, we've got a list of ten characters who would be essential picks (and maybe should have been in the game at release), offering Batman, Lex Luthor, and the rest of the "Injustice" heroes and villains some formidable challenges while mining the legacy of the DC Universe.
As a serious fighting game, "Injustice" is light on the quirky, idiosyncratic characters. That doesn't mean there can't be room for a mind-controlling, galaxy-traveling, ultra reproducing starfish. Starro, an early Justice League villain, would make a perfect Shuma Gorath to the rest of the game's more traditional fighters.

Marvel's first Phase Two offering has already pulled in $345 million from international markets by Friday - having topped the debut weekend of The Avengers, dominated the UK box office, and shattered the midnight opening record in the »

Superman is a science fiction story. What else can you say about the sole survivor of a doomed planet coming to live on Earth? As a result, some of the best stories about the Man of Steel have been science fiction in nature so it’s a wonder that it has taken this long before one of his confrontations with fellow alien Brainiac was brought to the screen. The feature films keep reusing Lex Luthor and General Zod, ignoring the computer construct from the distant world of Colu, who has captured specimen cities from countless worlds, including one from Krypton.
Thankfully, the folk at Warner Animation have recognized his incredible potential, first by reimagining him as a closer part of the mythos in their Superman: the Animated Series and now in Superman Unbound. The core story is lifted from Action Comics #866-870 by Geoff Johns and Garry Frank and collected »

Mister X: Eviction #1
Writer: Dean Motter
Artist/Cover: Dean Motter
Inker/Colourist: Hamid Bahrami
Published by Dark Horse Comics
When Mister X first came out of Toronto’s Vortex Comics way back in 1983, who would have dreamed its world could still generate quality stories thirty years later? After all, what dates more quickly than sci-fi depictions of the future? With technology motoring ever forwards, it’s hard for the imagination to keep up, let alone stay ever ahead of it. Yet somehow, with its fifties art deco tones and noir leanings, Eviction #1 manages to feel classic and fresh all at once, the perfect balance of old and new.
Series creator Dean Motter is back in force here, and he reintroduces us to a rich and fascinating world, a distant future as conceived by a bygone era. Rather than delving headlong into the science and technologies of the world, Motter finds truth in its modern, »

Castle star Molly C. Quinn talks about stepping into the role of Supergirl in a three-part video interview for Superman: Unbound, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD May 7th. James Tucker directs this animated adventure where Superman (Matthew Bomer) must stop the evil Brainiac (John Noble) from destroying Supergirl's hometown of Kandor. Take a look at this interview before picking up the Blu-ray and DVD next week.
Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release "Superman: Brainiac," Superman: Unbound finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth's customs and managing Lois Lane's expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton - Brainiac - begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, »
