Blu Ray Review: Justice League vs Teen Titans 

It’s an interesting question that I feel most comic nerds can answer: who are your Teen Titans? While generationally for me it should’ve been the Cartoon Network Teen Titans, it was a series I largely skipped, as it just didn’t appeal to me. My first true introduction was Geoff Johns’ Teen Titans Vol 1.

While the vs titles are getting a little tired with DC Animated / Movies, I couldn’t help being a little excited about a Justice League vs Teen Titans, until I learned what story they planned to tell.

Comic Issues #243 – Batman’s Inferno

This week the Tag Team Champions Anthony and Elizabeth step into the podcasting ring to bring to you some comic book recaps and reviews from the top rope!  Before they get there though Elizabeth talks about her review of Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven and interview with writer Brandon Easton (out tomorrow), and Anthony brings the disappointing news that Michael Bay’s Transformers is looking to go for four more films or more.

In this week’s news Zach Snyder and rumored to be talking to HBO about a Watchmen project, which feels more like a recipe for disappointment than it does a chance to explore more themes and stories.  In the other camp word is at ABC that a Damage Control half hour comedy is being considered, which may be exactly what comic book television needs.

On this week’s pull list is Inferno #5, Justice League #44, Ghost Racers #4, and Batman Annual #4.

Review – Justice League: Gods and Monsters

Review – Justice League: Gods and Monsters

To say DC Animation has and continues to have a huge impact on my life would be a bit of an understatement. While I may have made a bit of departure from the DC Comics Universe during its New 52 tenure, the TV and Animation departments have certainly picked up the slack. That’s not saying that the last couple of DC Animated films (Suicide Squad: Assault on Arkam and Batman Vs Robin) didn’t have their flaws.

I was more than relieved to see a departure from the New 52 and a focus on what really for me made the DC Animated universe what it is today: Bruce Timm. When I heard that he was working on an animated film, which would be something of an Else World’s tale, I was more than excited. Is DC Animation back in full force? Or is this just another diamond in the rough.

Movie Issues: No Justice Yet

Now that Man of Steel has been seen by many of our readers, I felt it was time to address one of the most common questions: where were the DC Universe tie-ins? Is Man of Steel supposed to be the start of Warner Brothers’ attempt at a DC cinematic universe? It could be argued that they did; everyone saw that Wayne Enterprise logo on the satellite Zod and Superman destroyed, right?

No, most didn’t spot a blink-and-you-miss-it Easter egg. If you’re not going to make such shout-outs clearly visible for all to see, why bother? Maybe Warner Brothers didn’t make bigger efforts towards showing a DC Universe for a simple reason: they are not ready, and they know it.
