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…

DC Entertainment’s latest animated adventure is arguably their most ambitious project yet. The highly anticipated animated adaptation of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s modern comic book classic, “All Star Superman” arrived with fireworks. The original out of continuity twelve issue comic book series tells the tale of Superman’s final days on Earth before he dies. Like the comic book, the film is just as visionary and enjoyable. An instant DC animated classic.
When DC Entertainment first announced their plans to bring Morrison’s masterpiece to…

The next film from Warner Bros. in the line of DC Animation gives us another Superman/Batman film. Last year around this same time, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies was released and I thought it was a very poor film. So this year when they announced Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, I have to say I did not have high hopes.
Ultimately, this proved to be a little bit of a surprise.
Superman/Batman: Apocalypse takes the origin story of Supergirl from the pages of Superman/Batman and turns it into a film. The story was originally written…

Greetings everyone, and welcome back to Creator Spotlight. In this piece, I take a look at the highly successful and controversial Grant Morrison. You either love him or you hate him, I love him, but what about you? Let’s take a look:
Grant Morrison is one of the most highly creative and respected comic book writers in the medium today. However, while Morrison is considered a true pioneer of the comics’ medium, his works often divide the fan base of characters such as Batman.
