One of the perks of working on DC All Access is that we’re occasionally able to read comics before they hit stands (it helps if we’re doing a feature on one of them…or in lieu of that, if you bribe the editors with cronuts), and such was the case with the first issue of The Royals: Masters of War. Knowing this, the editor of the Vertigo site asked if I’d mind writing a few words about it for their blog.
This week, the eagerly awaited Justice League: War hit stores nationwide. The latest in Warner Bros.’ successful and highly regarded series of animated movies set within the DC Universe, Justice League: War is an adaptation of Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. It’s an appropriate choice for a movie meant to lay the groundwork for a bigger universe of films. After all, Justice League: Origin did much the same thing to all of DC Comics.
