    Ok, this is a review I mostly agree with. It actually felt a lot like All Star Batman And Robin...



    What was your take on Defendor, JD? I just DVR'ed it.
    It was decent, dvr'ing it for free is probably the best way to go. Nothing spectacular and, like Super, it leaves a weird taste in your head. Neither are real easy movies to 'enjoy', but both are worth watching.

    We'll see how it plays out but so far I'm not terribly impressed.... and issue two is supposed to feature a fight between Superman and Batman..... where did I see that before.............

    It's entirely possible that this is the first Geoff Johns comic I've ever actually read (maybe), so I can't say anything about him, but after reading JLA the first time, I thought it was relatively fun. After a second and third read, though, all I can think is that this is a HORRIBLE way to try and bring new readers in, and if a new person does want to read it, they should be smart and wait for the trade.

    Seriously, if the idea is to bring new people in to the fold, or bring back people who have left, self-contained short stories are probably the way to go. And none of the 4 or 5 new DC books I've read have been that. All of them (JLA, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Stormwatch, Action Comics) felt like they were just setting stuff up, which is great if you're waiting for a trade or have the patience to wait for a story to develop, but might not work so well on the previously mentioned. coveted new audience members.

    The only book that seemed to have anything of a beginning and ending was Action Comics.

    Though I do think a lot of these books are going to be great.

    Well everything I'm hearing is that most of the books are selling really well. We'll see if that translates into prolonged sales down the road....

    Of all the New #1s that I've read I just felt like Justice League was the "dumbest". Oh and Hawk and Dove... jesus that sucked.

    Maybe that's what a book like Justice League should be. A huge Michael Bay-ian story that doesn't have time to focus on character because it's chalk full of "icons" and "epic stories" etc etc...

    It could just be "Event burnout" too. Recent DCU history has been one gigantic event after another and they all sucked and they all came with the implication that "NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!!!!!" so to launch this new status quo (that is supposedly going to remain "Event Free" for a few years) with a book where the brand new Justice League of Cocky Talking *******s faces off against Darkseid seems counter intuitive.

    Whatever. I'm sick.

    Also I don't read comic books.

    R.I.P.D. Set Photos

    Is it just me or did this develop really fast? Seems like they just announced Bridges being involved and boom, they were shooting. Worries me because I think Reynolds needs hisself a box office HIT right now. Overexposure and middling choices have dimmed his buzz considerably. Then again, Jennifer Aniston keeps making movies, so who knows.

    New Info, Images From The Animated Batman: Year One Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    The film’s co-director Sam Liu has been speaking with Animation Magazine (via Animatie) about some of the alterations he found necessary. Here’s an excerpt from their resulting article:

    One sequence that exemplified the difficulties was one in which Batman makes one of his first attempts at fighting crime. He attacks a trio of burglars on a fire escape and the entire battle takes as long as it does for a dropped television to hit the ground. It worked well in the medium of comics, where time is flexible, but took some effort to make work in animation.

    “Once you have something in motion, once it starts dropping, you’re on a clock, this kind of intuitive kind of clock,” says Liu.
    Pretty excited about this.

    How The DC New 52 First Prints Are Faring On eBay Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    This is insane. $22 for Animal Man #1? Really?

    At my local shop, any issues still on the stands that you didn't pre-order are now selling for these types of prices. I went in last Thursday and they were selling their last copy of Batgirl #1 for $12! Even though it had just come out the day before!

    Who in their right ****ing mind would pay that?

    So I don't really read X-Men comics anymore (except for X-Force), but I was looking at one of the comic art blogs I read just now and came across this:

    ComicsOdissey

    It's some preview pages from X-Men: Schism #5. Schism is the current event going through the X books (except X-Force) that will see the team split up into two separate teams, one led by Wolverine and the other by Cyclops. And everyone in the X-Universe is picking sides. Anyway, apparently Wolverine and Cyclops fight for a while over whatever the issue is, as detailed in these preview pages.

    It's a pretty awesome fight.

    Sheighm on you.

    Secondly....

    It's the Transitive Property of DC Media. Frankly I'm surprised they waited this long.

    New Green Arrow = Smallville Green Arrow
