This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and hopefully by now you have your plans in place. We know what we’re doing over here. Brunch at Mom’s favorite restaurant, followed by an afternoon at the pool. Maybe, if the weather stays nice we’ll step out for ice cream before heading home to watch one of Mom’s soon-to-be-favorite movies—Son of Batman.
The Multiverse is at war, and it's our job to recruit, strengthen, and train the soldiers that will fight for its preservation—soldiers that consist of some of the greatest and most notorious heroes and villains from throughout DC Comics history!
All this week on DCComics.com we've been celebrating one of the greatest shows in the history of television. No, not Breaking Bad, but we totally get that. Not The Wire either, although, again, good guess. No, we're talking about the Emmy Award-winning, insanely awesome, genre-defining Batman: The Animated Series, a.k.a. the series that set a benchmark for animated programming and that also introduced an entire generation of fans to the Dark Knight, serving as the defining interpretation of the character.
The Justice League is known for many things: uniting the World's Greatest Super Heroes under the banner of battling evil and upholding truth and justice; multiple incarnations throughout the various years featuring heroes from all across the DC Universe; even amazing animated programs and original animated films worthy of re-watch after re-watch even though you can quote every line by heart.
However, one of the best things the JL is known for: awe-inspiring fights and kick ass throwdowns against some of the biggest and baddest villains in the DC Universe.
Prepare for battle folks because war approaches! In this case specifically, we mean get your popcorn buttered, settle into your favorite couch, gather together your closest and nerdiest friends, and get ready to experience greatness because Justice League: War hits stores on Tuesday, February 4, and is 100 percent filled with sheer animated awesomeness.
Some people look for love in all the wrong places. Other people look for love in an insane Asylum and actually find it. It's a crazy little thing, that thing called love—and when it comes to the insanely popular (and clinically insane) DC Comics character Harley Quinn, well, you'd be crazy not to love her.
Last night marked the return of Arrow, the smash-hit CW television series focusing on the Emerald Archer and starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, and a whole lot of abs.
Season 1 rocked our faces off with a compelling tale, awesome action, and a super badass villain in the form of Malcolm Merlyn (dude caught an arrow one-handed like it was no big deal)—not to mention majorly changing the status quo at the end by killing off a main character and destroying half the Glades.
We're pretty sure the Dark Knight isn't one to celebrate birthdays, but that isn't going to stop us from celebrating it for him anyway! What now, Batman?! Ha!
... please don't hurt us.
Seriously though, this week's release of Detective Comics #27 celebrates the first appearance of the Caped Crusader, who made his dynamic debut in the original Detective Comics #27 75 years ago. And in all that time, he doesn't seem to have aged a da—okay, okay, fine, we're not going to make that joke again. But we will point out that his awesomeness hasn't diminished one single bit.
It's crunch time, folks! The holidays are right upon us and we've been so busy coming up with our own wish list and dreaming about the gifts we'll be getting (almost got your room all set up, future pet monkey Ampersand) that we've totally forgotten to purchase gifts for the two sets of people we value the most.
Firstly: our fans. As such, we dedicate this column to you! Congrats! We love you more than Arrow fans like us love Stephen Amell's abs and the geeky cute way that Felicity blushes when she sees them.
Hear that? That right there, readers, is the sound of Xmas tunes on an endless loop at every retail store in the near vicinity, the gentle "ahhh" that comes from that first drop of hot apple cider touching tongues, the crunch of fresh snow, the sound of sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling, too.
But that other sound, that's the sound of countless people freaking the heck out over trying to figure out what to purchase their loved ones for the holidays.
