Batman: Gotham by Gaslight ~ Sneak Peek

   When DC’s Elseworlds concept was first introduced, it felt like an upscale version of Marvel’s What-If comics. I was all aboard for anything that took my favorite heroes and put them in different settings. THIS next DC animated release has me very excited and I will be pre-ordering it ASAP.

Batman: Ascending Knight

One:12 Collective’s Batman: Ascending Knight by Mezco Toys

   This Batman is gorgeous. It updates his original 1939 look, perfectly. At only $80 (US) it seems pretty affordable for what you get. Will I pick one up? Probably not. I don’t usually go in for higher end collectibles. Vintage is where my money usually ends up 😉  As they say, never say never, though.

Spot On Animation: Justice League Action

   So I was looking for something new to try on Google Play on Thursday night, I found Justice League Action. I was interested when I saw some of the previews before it came out, but not having cable I forgot about it. The price tag was a bit steep for what I thought were 2 – 3 minute episodes. I was surprised to find that the first episode was 43 minutes in length and it was AWESOME. The episode was full of action and fun, and it only cost 99¢!

   Needless to say, with Mrs. Multiverse’s fan-girl permission, I purchased the rest of the episodes on Friday and have been watching them, in between some Boomerang content all weekend. The rest of the episodes run about 11 minutes long, and are just as entertaining as the first. So if you want to give yourself the gift of fun, pick these up for $29.99 on Google Play… it’s worth it.

Legend of the Bright Knight: History of the Adam West Batman TV Show

   The Nerdsync team has outdone themselves on this tribute video. If you watch, and rewatch, only one Adam West tribute then it needs to be this one.

   This issue of DC Special Series is a treat. Head over to “A Superman Collector in Hawaii” to read his entry on the issue.

   When I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of Superhero Secret Lairs, and among my favorites were Batman’s Batcave and Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Other than the Cool factor of the X-Men’s Danger Room, I cannot think of any other hideouts that I would rather visit.
