Comic Issues: Green Lantern Review

Despite lackluster romantic chemistry and self-depreciating special effects, an attractive cast, excellent writing, and just the right amount of cheese shines together in time to save Green Lantern from it’s greatest fear: bombing the box-office. The film is a refreshing change from the usual cynicism of contemporary film, a rarely enjoyable experience due uniquely to its goodness in nature, something most filmmakers have been out of touch with for quite a while. The central plot revolves around the fight between light and dark, represented by the power of “will” and “fear,” a perspective rarely done in film.

In general, Green Lantern presents itself well. Although some performances leave little to the imagination, the movie’s casting for look-a-like talent is spot-on, and its volley between immaturity and seriousness are clear triumphs. However, the real victory of Green Lantern is in its humor — this movie is never lacking in clever one-liners that keep an audience chuckling. Add that to a proven winner of a story plot and who could go wrong?

Green Lantern Movie – Fans’ Reactions

After attending a very special screening of the Green Lantern movie in 3D, our heroes grabbed their rings and made their way to talk with the fans. If that wasn’t enough fun, we had a chance encounter with some DC Artists, including Jeff Martinez, who gave me my Green Lantern Ring at AnimeConji. We also met Randy Mayor, colorist for Green Lantern Secret Origin. Prepare for some ring slinging fun, Poozers!

DC adds Bat-Books and GL to Rebooted Titles

Since DC’s huge announcement of the rebooting of 52 of its books, eleven books have been released.  However, as we all know, the hunger of comic readers around the world cannot be satisfied with such a small offering!  As of June 6, DC has announced fifteen additional titles that will be released in the month of September along with all the others.  Among these new titles are the much discussed Bat-books and, although it seems that not everyone’s represented as of yet, the talent is looking pretty spectacular.

DC announces Universe Reboot and same day digital delivery

DC announces Universe Reboot and same day digital delivery

In what will probably be the biggest comic book news this year, DC Comics announced today (via USA Today article) that beginning August 31st over 50 of their biggest titles will be renumbered back to #1.

Although renumbering a title isn’t new, or even that uncommon, each title will also be getting a fresh reboot.  DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee has been involved with many character costume redesigns, all in an attempt to make characters in the DCU (DC Universe) more recognizable and more appealing to a contemporary audience.

The DCU reboot will begin Aug. 31st with Justice League #1, written by DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns with long time comic book legend (and previously mentioned Co-Publisher for DC Comics) Jim Lee.  Justice League #1 will include the classic cast : Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Aquaman.

The two comic book industry heavyweights will lead the charge on DC’s Flagship book as the following rebooted / renumbered books will come out in September.  While rebooting a huge portion of the 76 year old comic universe is big news by itself, DC also announced a move that may finally put the company ahead of it’s long time rival Marvel Comics in the comic book industry.

The New and Improved Wonder Woman Costume

The internet has spoken and it looks like NBC was listening. Earlier today new pictures of Adrianne Palicki in action as Wonder Woman emerged. The Costume seems to be an altered from the original one we saw almost 2 weeks ago (See photo’s below). It looks as if NBC has taken a couple hints from the many upset forum posts across the internet as the plastic look of the costume has mostly been changed to a more matted spandex look. The boots have also been changed from a blue that matched the pants to a more traditional red.

The Ultimate Showdown: Batman vs Superman

As mentioned on the Comic Issues Podcast, I’m a bit of a fan of the Batman Brave and the Bold TV series. I really appreciate the blend of both campy Batman and the Dark Knight. Well the ultimate showdown is almost upon us, as Batman squares off against Superman. Of course that pesky Red Kryptonite is to blame but this should be a pretty epicsode. (see what i did there)

This time around things are going to be a little different. First with the great news that our “Captain” Nathan Fillion will be doing the voice work of character Hal Jordan. Also this time it appears the film will be from the perspective of other Lanterns aside from just Jordan.
