Justice League: Gods and Monsters Blu-Ray Back Cover
Justice League: Gods and Monsters DVD Back Cover

    Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you've never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod's blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods. This ain't your daddy's Justice League. They are as likely the world's saviors as Earth's despotic rulers. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely "accidents," a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League - and into a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law? The star-laden voice cast includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones), as Wonder Woman; Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), as Lois Lane; C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland), as Dr. Will Magnus; Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor, Richard Chamberlain (Dr. Kildare, The Thorn Birds) as Highfather, and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Steve Trevor.

The feature-length animated thriller will have its World Premiere on Friday, July 10 at 7:00pm in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Tamara Taylor (Wonder Woman) and Paget Brewster (Lois Lane) have already been confirmed to attend the World Premiere at Comic-Con.

The film will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital HD on July 14, and as a Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on July 28.

June 29, 2015: Supergirl Amongst Warner Bros. Television SDCC BagsPrint

Supergirl Bag Warner Bros. Television will once again promote its most popular TV shows with a series of official bags for those attending Comic-Con International in San Diego next month... and there's a Supergirl bag amongst the collection.

The bags - which double as backpacks - also include "Arrow," "The Flash," "The 100," "Gotham," "Lucifer," "The Originals," "Supernatural," "The Vampire Diaries," and Warner Bros. Animation's "Teen Titans Go!" and digital series "Vixen," along with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's "Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem." "Gotham" will boast two bags of differing designs: one featuring Gotham City's heroes, the other, its villains.

    More than 130,000 bags have been produced and will be provided to Comic-Con attendees throughout the event.

    Designed by Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing, each bag features double-sided artwork, with the Comic-Con 2015 official design on one side and the other side touting titles from the studio's TV lineup.

    Warner Bros. Television will also highlight their comic book shows on themed hotel keycards around San Diego during the convention.

June 29, 2015: Moving the DC Comics Archive Library from NY to LAPrint

Action Comics #1 The Hollywood Reporter filed a video report on the interesting items held within the Archive Library within the offices of DC Comics, and some of the rarer and more interesting items that are housed there... including a copy of Superman's debut issue - "Action Comics #1".

    The move west didn't merely uproot the staff; it also meant a cross-country trip for DC's celebrated library on Broadway, which was stored in a vault and included nearly every comic the company has published as well as a collection of licensed merchandise and oddities. (Collectively, DC's copies of the first appearances of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are worth more than $2 million.)

    Special movers, working with Warner Bros. Archives, packed nearly 100,000 comics and 8,000 hardcover books into 600 boxes, and a security team escorted them to a giant truck in mid-March. DC executives tracked the vehicle via GPS, and another security team oversaw the collection's unloading.

"Before Truth" - Part 1

Writer: Gene Luen Yang
Penciller: John Romita Jr.
Inker: Klaus Janson
Cover: John Romita Jr.
Joker Variant Cover: Karl Kerschl

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    The burning question is why 'Truth' started mid story, it honestly has ruined the strength of the story by grandstanding the changes made for no apparent reason, polarizing fans deliberately with an eye for sales rather than story. Why this issue didn't kick the arc off I have no idea. There is enough intrigue to keep you hooked, a lead in for a new starter, some decent characterization and dialogue. This is despite the fact Lois was wildly unprofessional and a meddling, annoying witch. The 3D printing was laughable of course, as was, even in haste, the use of cellphones when superior compact cameras exist and yes I spotted that the Daily Planet - formerly The Planet Global Network the most advanced media outlet on Earth (when the New 52 began) is using USB VGA webcams. Also - Superman who is just about above human power levels is not completely crushed sitting against a planes tail wing? Perhaps I'm being finicky here?

"Rogue Targets" - Part 1

Writer: Will Pfeifer
Penciller: Kenneth Rocafort
Inker: Kenneth Rocafort
Cover: Bengal
Variant Cover: Scott McDaniel

Reviewed by: Keith Samra

    Let me state from the start here, there is only two reasons I came back to this book.

    First Steve Younis kindly asked me to.

    And secondly, because Kenneth Rocafort was drawing it (more on that in the art section).

    This is me jumping back into current comics. A couple years back, I dropped buying all new comics, as I felt that they weren't for me anymore (also I had some heavy stuff happening in my life that I had to deal with). I'm not going to bash on the New 52, but it's not my thing, so I quietly left, leaving it to those that enjoy it. Did I miss buying and collecting current comics, of course I did, but I couldn't shell out so much money for something that I didn't enjoy that much anymore.

    With that said and done, I must say, I enjoyed this issue a fair bit. So much so, that I went back and bought all the issues from when this series was relaunched last year. Pfeifer and Rocafort have done a good job so far, and the Annual heralded the return of Superboy to this team. So they managed to suck me back in and buy the back issues. Quite frankly, I'm happy to come back to it. I really did enjoy this book.
