New Bruce Timm DC Cartoon Is Alright, I Suppose

I dunno. Everybody’s making a big deal out of this Bruce Timm-designed new cartoon series, but I don’t think it looks all that interesting. It’s called Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and it’s a dark re-imagining that’s going to focus on evil versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Along with the DVD movie, they’ve also produced a few mini-webisodes, and here’s the first one now. It’s the new Batman vs. a very scantily dressed Harley Quinn. Somehow, Timm came up with a way to make Harley’s outfit even skimpier than it has been in recent years.

Maybe the movie will be better, but then I haven’t been impressed by one of DC’s animated movies in a long time. Here’s an interview with Timm if you’re interested, but for me, I think this whole thing is going to be a pass. Adding heads in jars and skimpy underwear on Harley Quinn does not a good show make.

  1. Ho hum. Another ‘dark reimagining’ from DC Comics, because we haven’t seen them do that all over the place. I love Timm’s art style, but this is just dreadful.
