First Look – Injustice 2 Gameplay – Seeing Red?

Were you as skeptical as I was when the first Injustice game came out? Don’t get me wrong, I was excited, I just had vague memories of the DC Comics vs Mortal Kombat game on the Xbox 360. But E3 is right around the corner, and it seems WB Games couldn’t wait to show us Injustice 2.

Now the announcement trailer left a lot to be desired, so let’s take a look at the Gameplay trailer. Oh and did I mention that a certain Red Lantern appears…

Review – Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1

Review – Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1

I remember believing that “wonder” meant “awe.” That the name they gave me spoke of admiration. Perhaps it did, once.
But the story keeps changing.

I’ve been curious about Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 ever since it was announced: Diana has had a tough time reaching the same status as the rest of the DC Trinity, and I’m wondering if Rebirth is where she’ll finally hit her stride. (Warning, spoilers below.)

DC Rebirth #1: Hope vs Despair

DC Rebirth #1: Hope vs Despair 

It’s finally over: the long and at times painful New 52 is no more. We now find DC doing a much needed Rebirth. Now for me the term Rebirth is very special. While I preferred DC to Marvel in the past, I wasn’t a hardcore reader. It wasn’t until a chance encounter with Geoff Johns – who convinced me to read Green Lantern Rebirth – that I really got back into comics. This review will be jam packed with spoilers so read on at your own risk.

RIP Darwyn Cooke: a look at The Twilight Children

RIP Darwyn Cooke: a look at The Twilight Children

I’d already planned on reviewing The Twilight Children this week since the collected volume is now in stores, but the review has turned into a eulogy too: the illustrator Darwyn Cooke passed away this past Saturday of lung cancer at the age of 53.

Anything I say about it now is going to seem a little maudlin, but since this book was a project he’d wanted to do for years, I thought I ought to say something.

(You’ll have to take my word for the fact that this review was going to be a good one even before I learned of his death. But if you read the book I think you’ll believe me.)

Review: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Well it’s been a month and here at Movie Issues HQ the crew has finally digested enough of BVS to be able to sit down and talk about it. So that’s what this week brings. We hit the high notes, which there are some, and all the low notes, which there are countless amounts of. So please listen as we discuss Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeRead On

Binary System Podcast #35 – WTNV #87 “The Trial of Hiram McDaniels”

The long awaited trial of Hiram McDaniels has finally arrived. Aaaand now it’s done. That was fast.

We didn’t get to see much of the trial (Mayor Cardinal took the charge to “Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” a little too seriously, and they had to clear the courtroom), but the results were exactly what we WEREN’T expecting. Justice in Night Vale isn’t for wimps. Or anybody, really.

And weirdly, on the eve of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War we somehow ended up giving a little love to DC and the handful of shows and animations that they’ve done well. This was after we made snarky comments about Batman v Superman and Convergence, but the love got in there eventually.

WonderCon 2016 – DC Rebirth Event Highlights

WonderCon 2016 – DC Rebirth Event Highlights

This weekend DC Comics announced all the details of the upcoming Rebirth event at a highly-anticipated panel at WonderCon 2016.

The atmosphere in the packed-to-capacity room was surprisingly optimistic, despite fans having some serious problems with New 52 and Convergence. The DC higher ups took the right tone: when talking about DC’s recent history Dan Didio even said “sometimes you lose your way a little.” He said “something was missing” from New 52. The direction of Rebirth (on paper anyway, I’m a skeptical person) seems to be one of legacy characters, a re-commitment to fans, twice-monthly titles, and all books dropping to 2.99.

See below for more highlights, photos, artist lineups, and the full video of the panel.
