Movie Review: Justice League vs. The Fatal Five

Details: More information can be found at https://www.dccomics.com/videos/justice-league-vs-the-fatal-five-official-trailer and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8752474/

Score: 7/10

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is an animated movie that takes place in the same universe as Batman: The Animated Series, Superman (the Bruce Timm cartoon), Justice League (the Bruce Timm cartoon), Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited. This movie is essentially an hour and a half long new episode of the Justice League Unlimited cartoon, which sound great to me. I loved those old cartoons and an opportunity to revisit that world again with all the old voice actors is fantastic to me.

Reign of the Supermen is the next movie that’s come out of DC Comics animated division and continues the story of their animated movie universe. It’s an okay movie. I mostly watched it because I want something at the same quality and level of Batman: The Animated Series and this is about as close as I can get. I do like the continuity between movies.

Details: The first issue of this twelve issues series was first published in 2017. Official site for the trade paper back is https://www.dccomics.com/graphic-novels/mister-miracle-2017/mister-miracle

Score: 7.5/10

There are a lot of whispers on the internet that this book is nominated for an Eisner award, the Oscars of the comic book world. Which isn’t really surprising. This book offered me something that I always look for, but rarely get: it showed me something new and relatively original. Mr. Miracle combines the fantastic and mundane, creating a trippy book where you question whether any of it actually happens or is a hallucination of the protagonist.
