Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful

Justice League isn’t a terrible movie, and that in itself is a major achievement. Director Zack Snyder’s past two superhero outings were dour, unwieldy affairs that fundamentally misunderstood almost every character who appeared in them. Justice League is a much more conventional movie, leaner and even fun at times. It’s not great by any means.Continue reading “Justice League Review: It Was Fine, I Guess? Not Good, But Not Awful”

A Wonder Woman-Centric Review Of Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis

DC Animation’s new direct to DVD movie, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, focuses primarily on Aquaman discovering his heritage and joining the Justice League, but let’s face it: Nobody cares about Aquaman. His storyline was fine, albeit rather grim and grumpy. It was definitely odd to see DC Comics turning a corner in their comicsContinue reading “A Wonder Woman-Centric Review Of Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis”

Aquaman Annual #2 Review OR The Wonder Woman And Mera Team Up Steals The Show

Wonder Woman not only co-starred in yesterday’s Aquaman Annual #2, she was actually in the book more than Aquaman himself. The issue began with Diana and Arthur investigating a castle in France to track down the giant-born, a group of powerful monsters disguised as humans. The story was fine, but somewhat underwhelming. There were aContinue reading “Aquaman Annual #2 Review OR The Wonder Woman And Mera Team Up Steals The Show”

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Review OR Good, But Very Dark

I’ve been looking forward to Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox since it was announced.  While the Flashpoint comics didn’t do much for me, it was largely because they were broken up into so many mini-series that it was hard to see the whole story all at once.  A movie solves that problem, weaving all theContinue reading “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Review OR Good, But Very Dark”

The Winners And Losers In DC Comics’ Zero Month

When I write up my Wonder Woman sales report each month, I track a lot of DC’s other books so I can get a sense of how Wonder Woman is doing comparatively.  This month, DC put out #0 issues for most of their series as a one year anniversary of the New 52 celebration, andContinue reading “The Winners And Losers In DC Comics’ Zero Month”
