Adam West/William Shatner Batman/Two-Face Animated Movie Announced

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, the original animated movie featuring Adam West voicing the 1960s version of the hero, has a follow-up coming, and it’s got an astounding guest star. William Shatner will be playing the other title character in Batman vs. Two-Face, out in October. West and Shatner previously worked together in a pilot for a 1963 TV show, Alexander the Great, that wasn’t picked up. This is one of West’s last roles, as he passed away in […]

Giant Days Special Tackling Holiday, London Cliches

Boom! Studios has announced that they will be releasing in November the Giant Days 2017 Special. Creator/writer John Allison is putting together, in his words, “a tribute to the films of Richard Curtis, and the Bridget Jones movies, by someone who has seen those movies perhaps once, and maybe not all the way through.” Artist Jenn St-Onge (Jem: The Misfits) chimes in: “Readers can expect some holiday hijinx from our main ladies (with only the best intentions, of course), some […]

Titan Comics Seizes on Current Events to Promote Fighting American Launch

On July 4, Titan Comics (a British company, interestingly) released the following teaser poster to promote the October launch of Fighting American, a property created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1954.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun because volume 6 wasn’t quite as funny as I hoped, but I’m glad to see that these recent installments bring back the balance and comedy I was looking for. The series is a collection of four-koma (panel) strips, grouped into chapters of 12 or so pages around the same subject. The premise is a high schooler, Nozaki, who is a professional manga-ka, and most of his friends either help […]

A reminder that the newest original DCU animated film, Batman and Harley Quinn, is showing in selected movie theaters tomorrow (Monday) night. This will be the first of the 30 (!) films I’ve seen on the big screen, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve previously written about the release details, including the trailer, but here’s a new clip of the voice talent being interviewed about the movie. I like what I heard about tone and approach. The classic animated […]
