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.
After hearing about Joss Whedon’s being brought onboard by Warner Bros. for finishing the JLA movie. Jessica Chobot, of Nerdist News, reported that Scott Snyder had called in Whedon to help with something on the production way before his needed exit.
Over on the site’s FaceBook page, I posted a Comic Book Cover Cavalcade of Holiday themed back issues in a photo gallery. Check it out here: Four Color Holiday Celebration. I post graphic heavy content on FaceBook to save space for blog-specific items. Anyhow, head over to the gallery, and check it out. There are a few magazine covers too, due to extra christmasy content.
A great, and in depth video, by Nerdsync. Scott’s ability to break things down is concise and informative. Often he goes through historical events of the day that affected the way comics were made and presented. I’ve been a reader-collector for most of my life, since I was eight in 1978, and he will drop something that I didn’t even know.
Jack Kirby. Jack KING Kirby. It’s important to note that he was one of the MOST influential artists in the comic book industry. If not one of than THE most. His style is the most recognisable and elements of it can be found in many of my favorite artists of my youth and even today. Continue reading “Happy 99th Birthday Jack Kirby”→
Like many, today, I was treated to an excellent tale. Future Quest has been a book that I’ve been waiting for ever since it was announced. Today was the payoff. Not since I stopped collecting physical comic books in 2006 have I wanted to go to my local shop and pick this book up. I purchased my copy from Comixology, this evening, and finally got around to reading it. It grabbed my attention and never let go. When I was finished, I was begging for more! This book was so good that I plan on picking up a physical copy this week.
