Hal Jordon and his ragtag team of Lanterns battle to save the universe in the unfortunately short-lived CG-animated series.
As Hal continues trying to readjust himself to normal life, a crazed alien species bearing a pink ring finds Carol and picks her as the ring’s new host. The ring seeks to mate with Hal and soon finds that Carol is no longer the object of his affection, it is a new woman by the name of Jillian Pearlman, otherwise known as Cowgirl. Now, with Carol’s help, Hal must save Jillian and stop the Star Sapphires from furthering their plots, but little does he now that this is just the start of a far greater story that will change the fate of the universe itself.
Cartoon Network has released a few shorts online that have been a part of their DC Nation programming block. The shorts, called “Bat Man of Shanghai” is a three-part series with each segment focusing on a different character. Set in what seems to be China circa 1930, we follow a chase scene involving Catwoman, Bane, and of course, Batman himself. The art style is rather striking with sharp yet sketchy lines and fluid motion. There have been different attempts at “anime-fying” the Dark Knight (that’s a word, you can friggin’ look it up!), but this one seems the most eye-popping and yet the most natural. It’s not generic like most anime and the fight scenes are so stylized that it draws you in immediately.
But, you gotta check it out yourself to see what I mean. Honestly, I hope we see more animation in this style from DC Nation. It may fit the most with Batman’s style, but it would be awesome to see other DC heroes brought on screen with this art style. Maybe the Justice League? Green Lantern? Ohh! Green Arrow!!! Okay, maybe Batman is the one that makes the most sense with this. But still! It would be cool to see more of anything animated like this. It’s pretty awesome.

Way back when the New 52 first launched, the first comic I picked up was Justice League, mostly because it was the first one to be released. I read the first issue and enjoyed it but I never followed up on it for one reason or another. My comic reading comes and goes in spurts, which I think works for something that’s monthly. Today, I’ve finally finished reading the first story arc in the series, titled Origins. This first story arc is comprised of the first six issues in the series and makes up the entirety of volume 1.
With the second half of season 2 of Young Justice a couple of months away, we get a sneak peak at what’s to come in the teaser trailer linked below. In it, we see the last couple of minutes of the previous episode, followed by some scenes that will start airing in September. Some noteworthy additions to the roster are Deathstroke, Static, and Black Beetle. You guys have no idea how hyped we are for this!
We’ve got another episode for y’all! This time we review one of the best animated shows in recent years, Young Justice. Here’s a disclaimer though: We recorded this a little while back, just before the Season 2 premiere. So you get to hear our horribly inaccurate predictions of what was coming up. Enjoy!
Also, look out for our next podcast where we have 2 special guests!

So, I’ve been out of the comic reviewing scene for a bit but I am back now and I’m not gonna let Kurenai take over this shit. So let’s do this! There are bats, owls, and kids trapped in attics. Shit’s getting crazy.
The team has escaped Invictus with the promise that they’ll find and destroy Larfleze, the Orange Lantern. At the same time it seems as if the team begins to fall apart when three Lanterns go their own ways. What’s in store for the team? Read on to find out!
