Cartoon Network Unleashes The DC Nation

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Rumblings have been felt regarding new DC projects coming to Cartoon Network in 2012 beyond what we have so far with Young Justice and the recent premiere of the Green Lantern animated series. Now we find out that it’s one big project called “DC Nation” and it has a lot of content to show:

The return of Teen Titans? Plastic Man drawn in the same vain as Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack?? Kevin Conroy as Lego Batman??????? Sign me up now!

But seriously, it’s great to see DC going full throttle with its media push back into television. With their comics re-launch showing more of an adult side, it’s good to see that the kids have not been left hanging high and dry in other mediums.

CBF Quick Picks #60 : Justice League Generation Lost #21

Sunday, March 13th, 2011


NOTE: We’re re-doing the intro song for our shows. Until then, enjoy my voice upon hitting play (if you’re ok with that, of course)

There’s not enough words any more to describe how awesome Judd Winick has been on Justice League Generation Lost. Issue 21 continues that trend with bringing things down a notch and showing us the team’s reaction to losing one of their own. This was great characterization that had been lacking at times in this series what with the focus being on JLI’s never-ending chase of Maxwell Lord. With the big cliffhanger at the end, the last three issues are looking promising.

Zatanna #10 supposedly ends the battle between the titular magician and the magically cursed puppet she finds out to be quite the bad guy her dad thought him to be. I say “supposedly” because anybody who read the last couple of pages knows things didn’t exactly go Zatanna’s way. Nevertheless, it’s enjoyable reading because of Paul Dini’s passion for the character.

I had been hesitant for a bit to get into Venom #1 until I learned that Rick Remender (of Uncanny X-Force and Fear Agent writing fame) was writing and Flash Thompson was taking on the symbiote suit. The first issue gave us a taste of what the Army’s plans are for Flash and the suit and how Flash will react to constantly being taken away from the suit. Those of you who know what Flash’s current physical state outside of the suit know what I’m talking about. There’s a lot of story ideas to come out of this next volume in the Venom series and I for one will enjoy this ride.

CBF Quick Picks #56 : Justice League Generation Lost #19

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

You guys still want to talk about last week’s books, right? Right? …………anybody?

DC must really like packing everything in for one week. There easily could have been a number of their books from last week to hit the top 3, but ultimately, I’m running with Justice League Generation Lost #19, Flash #9, and Batgirl #18. Whether you wanted more quirky one-off charming stories from Stephanie Brown, a good lead-up to the Flashpoint event, or an homage (or re-hash?) to a shocking death during the Infinite Crisis event – you’re plate was full this week. Enjoy the show and let me know your thoughts.
