Editor's Note: Green Lantern has been out for a week now and despite the critics not enjoying it, their are plenty of reasons to go see the film if you haven't already (or see it again). Comic fans in general have given the movie great reviews, including two of our very own. This is the first of two reviews for the film. Check out the site later today for the other.
It is good to see DC begin to venture out from the usual superheroes…

EDITOR'S NOTE: About a month ago, Nick was able to see this film when it premiered in Europe at Kapow Comic Con. While this still does not release until June 7, we want to start building hype for this film, the live action film and Green Lantern in general. Do be warned though, that the review does contain minor spoilers.
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is the latest offering from Warner Brothers Animation Studios and follows a string of popular and…

What with the recent cancellation of 'Batman: Europa' (again) and the delayed issues of 'Batman Incorporated' #3, 'Batman: The Dark Knight' #2 and 'Batwoman' #1 with no official warning or reason from DC, I felt it was time to do their dirty work.
We have of course been living with this for some time, and not just delayed issues but incorrect solicitations; how many issues of 'Streets of Gotham' that Paul Dini was solicited for did he actually write (forgetting for a moment the half-finished, half-hearted quality of those…

Editor's Note: Dark Knight Dave gives us a bonus review inside this one with not only a review of Superman/Batman #78, but also the recent Brightest Day #15. Enjoy!
Have you ever noticed how often lately that Batman ends up dead in the pages of comic books? It’s an intriguing prospect and one that provides endless opportunities to rewrite the Batman mythos. For one, Batman is seemingly an invincible character. He’s the world’s…

Batman Schools Green Lantern
As most of us know Batman has had an uneven history with the Green Lantern. Certainly they don’t always see eye to eye and sometimes their relationship has come to blows. But they’ve always had a healthy respect for each other. Most of this is true of the relationship between the Bruce Wayne Batman and the Hal Jordan Green Lantern. But what of the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern and his relationship with either Bruce or Dick Grayson?
Recently we got a peek into that rapport in Green Lantern Corps #54. Without going…
