Justice League: Doom Review

 

Justice League DoomThe next DC animated feature to be released will be Justice League: Doom and is it a doozie!  While doing all the things that you would expect from a story line about a good super hero team colliding with its own evil counter parts, JL:D does so much more.  We see an exploration of the inner strengths and weakness that make each individual member of the Justice League both super and human.  

 

Man from SpaceSpace...the final frontier. The galaxy far, far away. The Black. The place where the Alien came from. Space is an old friend of both the comic book and science-fiction genres. Still, cartoonist Marc Jackson manages to bring something completely new and original to the starry beyond: a snarky, foul-mouthed, intergalactic-traveling goldfish! If this is enough to bring a smile your face, comic book sniffers, then jump on board for the absurd and hilarious rocket trip that is the comic book Man from Space!

Bachelorette-2012Leslye Headland wrote and directed Bachelorette, a film adaptation of a play that she also penned. The play of the same name is one part of a series based on the seven deadly sins, with Bachelorette assigned Gluttony. The film unapologetically dives into its characters’ vices: meanness, drug abuse, casual sex, and self-loathing, to name a few. Bachelorette, however, manages to entertain and indulge its audience while presenting characters in crisis. This dark comedy is razor sharp both in wit and pain; although, Headland’s desensitized characters may not feel the full sting of their words or actions, by the end, the audience sure does.

Flash I6Fanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

Flash #6
by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato

The second arc of the Flash starts here as Buccellato and Manapul reintroduce Captain Cold, one of Flash’s oldest enemies who gets a new 52 update…and he’s deadlier than ever. I have to admit, I never used to be a Flash fan. I figured he was a dude who ran fast, and his bad guys always seemed dorky. Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul have proven me wrong with every issue of this book, and, nowadays, Flash is one of the books I’m most excited to read each week. The Flash possesses an amazing super power: he can tap into the speed force and run faster, punch faster, and even think faster, but the writers have introduced a very interesting limitation for the Flash. The use of his powers could possibly be ripping time and space apart at the seams. Before Flash can even figure out what to do about this problem, his old nemesis Captain Cold returns with a vengeance. The most interesting thing about this series is that both creators serve as artists and writers in this book. No other creative team has ever had such amazing synergy between the art and the story. Every image in Flash is full of vibrant color and a sense of movement, and the layouts are beautiful and always unique. If you missed the first five issues, this is a great jumping on point, so go pick it up because obviously it’s going to go very fast.

Swamp Thing With Review52 Catch Up is a series devoted to looking at issues from DC's New 52 and seeing how they're faring now that they're underway, why they're worth reading (or not), and places we hope they will go in time.

 

Concept:

 

Dr. Alec Holland was a botanist working on the bio-restorative formula when an accident occurred in his lab and he was killed.  Now, he's come back from the dead years later, with memories of being some kind of monster, a Swamp Thing, but before he can make sense of all of this, the plants start to speak to him again, telling him of his destiny as the Protector of the Green.
