[Review] Green Lantern: The Animated Series

I just saw the first two episodes of DC’s latest TV series, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and it was pure awesomeness! It did not have a boring origin story of Hal Jordan (and that’s exactly what I was hoping for), it actually had a brilliant take on the Green lantern storyline. I really enjoyed watching the first episode and when it ended, I wanted more and more! I always enjoy a Green lantern story that focuses on the battle between different color lanterns or corps. And I hope they continue with this storyline and bring on other lanterns.

This series is a must watch if your a Green lantern fan, it has everything you want, plus, the CGI affects are just great!

I’m gonna give it 9/10 and I can’t wait for the next episodes.

Review: Justice League #1


I’ve been reading comics now for three years and I have to be honest, I’m liking it so far. I can truly say that I’m not only a comic book reader, but also a fan. Being a fan/reader is basically reading comic books, exploring the process of these comics, and following the NEWS! The last aspect is the most important thing in being more than a comic book reader.

You probably know by now that I’m a DC comics fan, I just love their characters and continue on reading them and their story lines. Mainly, Batman story lines, but I usually read Superman’s legendary stories once in a while.

One of the biggest news of 2011 is the DC comics relaunch and with it comes 52 new titles. But that’s not what made me the happiest man alive. It was the fact that they will have a day-to-date digital form for these 52 titles. SO, now I can read and download these new comics on a monthly basis.

The first comic book to come out is the new Justice league, written by @GeoffJons and art by @JimLee.

First of all, the art ia amazing. Lee simply knows how to draw both Batman and Hal Jorden. There were many splash picture and Lee serve them justice (pun not intended).

As for the story, it’s normally a slow base in many of Geoff’s stories and that’s exactly what we got here. Although to be fair, this comic book is a jumping point for all of us and the starting element for the whole DC universe, so it had to be slow.

All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and have high hopes for the upcoming issues.

Justice League #1: 8.5/10


Review: Green Lantern

Being the comic book fan and reader (nerd) that I am, I could not resist not going to this movie. I’ve been a huge fan of the Green Lantern’s comics and read most of the famous storylines. So basically I came prepared and excited to see this new incarnation of the character.

Just Truth and I, have different tastes when it comes to movies, I love any comic book related superhero movie, and he doesn’t! And the Green Lantern movie wasn’t an exception! Truth did not like the movie and the awful VIP chairs did not help(360 mall)! ON THE OTHER HAND, I loved the movie and gave it a full, fat score! I’m a comic book reader so obviously I’m gona love and enjoy this movie, and I did!

Loved the story and the customs.. They chose their characters wisely and stuck with a lot of the comic book elements! Although they did change many things that were in the original GL origin story, they kept many things the way they are in the comics.

I might even buy more GL comics this summer just because how awesome this movie turned out to be! An amazing incarnation of this famous character! This movie deserves a full 10.. And ya b’cuz I’m a DC fan 🙂 ..

Next superhero movie: Captain America.. can’t wait!
