I’m back to provide more doses of insightful commentary on the world of comics. Today, I look into where we stand with the comic book movies of the year so far. No shortage of great material as continues to be the case with these films.

I also dive into the world of DC digital, where the plethora of great content continues to amaze me. How can you go wrong with a new book each day for 99 cents each? Whether it’s Injustice Year Two, Batman Beyond, or Infinite Crisis – DC is letting the storytelling shine in the digital realm.

Let me know your thoughts!
