The second installment of the animated film version of Frank Miller’s famed graphic novel picks up right where we left off and hits the ground running.

The animators have clearly kept it in the ‘80’s as Reagan is President, as he is the graphic novel. Superman’s role is incredibly similar to the way in which Nixon uses Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen. Funnily enough, both…

This is the first in a series to catch up on what else can be found in the DC Digital Store, besides the weekly dosage of TBU related titles, through the end of 2011.
Because of the sheer amount of stuff that is available now, I’ve decided to break this up into various character families and eventually I’ll get to the other DC owned imprints you can find either in the DC store, or over at the Comixology.com store.
And we shall begin with the Big…

DC has been releasing new animated features on a consistent basis since Gotham Knight. In fact, DC has always striven to provide material straight from the DCU and make it accessible to fans who do not read comics or TPB’s. Their attempt at a Green Lantern story that does not center around one particular Lantern is worth consideration. A warning to all, spoilers below!!!!
Emerald Knights is more of a compilation of experiences from several Lanterns, as…
