Superman Unbound (Animated film)
While Hollywood studios adapt comic books with changes to what their essences are, Warner Bros. animation (DCAU) chooses to adapt stories straight from the comic books. After the impressive two-part adaptation …
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns- Part Two
Frank Miller’s critically acclaimed mini-series/graphic novel “The Dark Knight Returns” had arguably re-defined the Batman mythos. It was such a monumental undertaking that for its storyline …
Superman: Earth One- Volume 2

Justice League: Doom
DC Animated Universe’s many adaptations of different comic book storylines have resulted with both good and disappointing results. I wasn’t that excited upon hearing about this creation and …
Green Lantern: The New 52 (Issue # 1 and 2)
Let’s face it, the “New 52” is a marketing ploy and meant to sell more comics. I wonder how and why the majority of DC’s titles are sporting “issue # 1’s” when …
Justice League: The New 52 (Issues 1 and 2)
The new “52” Justice League is part of a reboot of all the DC titles. This title in particular takes DC’s flagship super-hero team and tries to re-interpret the origins of the so-called …

Action Comics 454: Superman's Energy Crisis
Every now and then I go through my collection to see some issues that just make me dumbfounded as to why I would own such an issue. I know that I began as a DC nut when I was a kid in the 70’s until …

Superman: Earth One
Superman reboots and re-tellings. God, seems like DC just keeps on going on and on with this as they find reason after reason (Zero Hour, Crisis, Elseworlds etc.) to do this. After John Byrne’s …

SUPERMAN: DAY OF DOOM
Back in 1992 (or was it 1993?), DC published the “Death of Superman” story arc in an attempt to generate more sales for the man of steel. It was a great gimmick that did generate huge sales …

Batman: Under the Red Hood
I’ve never been such a big fan of producer Bruce Timm’s animated movies that feature characters from the DC universe. I always looked at them as the way Michael Bay or J.J. Abrams would take …

IDENTITY CRISIS
   Back in 2004, DC Comics came out with a 7-issue mini-series that they promoted as the “comic event of the year”. I know from experience that claims of this kind often …
Batman: The Last Arkham
Those who have read about the recent events in Batman (# 697) would know that the identity of the Black Mask have indeed been revealed as Jeremiah Arkham. So the question is: did DC really set the groundwork …

Rarely has a film left me speechless, much less a comic book inspired film. Christopher Nolan's rendition of the DC comic character has. "THE DARK KNIGHT" may well be the best comic book …
