For many people the golden standard of bringing Gotham City and its legendary protector to the world of animation remains Batman: The Animated Series which was able to stylishly combine darkness with a wink of humour. Many incarnations have followed with the Warner Archive Collection recently releasing on Blu-ray two Cartoon Network shows with one targeting your funny bone while the other strikes at the knees.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold: The Complete First Season includes 26 independent episodes which have a production design pallet that is as colourful as the characters. Each show begins with an action sequence that usually has nothing to do with the subsequent storyline. The majority of the action happens in the daylight with a wide spectrum of »
The Warner Animation series of direct-to-disc features has apparently said farewell to the past as this week’s release of Justice League: War and May’s Son of Batman are both from the New 52 era. A pity given how many cool stories remain unadapted. Readers who picked up Justice League #1 in August 2011 were treated to a brand new take on the tried and true characters from DC Comics, but it was clearly early in their collective careers. It was the first time many were meeting one another and dealing with the threat of Darkseid from Apokolips.
A fresh start but far from a clean one but discussions of that title and the entire New 52 belong elsewhere. Right now, we’re examining the latest feature from director Jay Oliva to see how well it stands up on its own. He’s working from a script by Heath Corson, making his DC »

Over the holidays I purchased for myself the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game. While I freely admit I have little to no real prowess with fighting games, I am invariably drawn to them. Compared to other types of video games, fighters allow users to enjoy a gaming session that’s like a great one-night stand; get in, get your business done, reap the rewards, and leave before it gets complicated.
The game is built on the Elseworlds principle wherein we explore the mighty Dcu through the lens of yet-another alternative dimension where a slight change in the continuity results in a completely new world to explore. In Injustice, Superman is duped into killing Lois by the Joker, who adds a delightfully evil icing to his cake of cacophony by nuking Metropolis. Dead girlfriend (carrying his super scion to boot) plus nuked hometown equals Superman deciding he’s done being a reactionary hero. »
