We’ve got one of those weird, outlier, DC-only weeks again! I will gladly admit that I prefer Marvel Comics, but in an effort to be in any way impartial, I do keep trying to read more DC for these reviews! And this week is all DC Comics (with one non-Marvel exception).
We’ve got really fun issues of Detective Comics and Harley Quinn, but the real winner this week is the new issue of Batgirl. It had a lot of great moments, earning it Comic Book of the Week!
Normally this is where I would review the latest issue of the Big Event, but I’ve decided to shake things up and actually review the individual Doomsday Clock issues. It’s a sequel to Watchmen, so I figure I owe it to…I dunno, the comic book gods? Either way, look below for my review of Doomsday Clock!
Comic Reviews: Batgirl #17, Detective Comics #969, Doomsday Clock #1, Harley Quinn #32 and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #21.
I loved it when I saw it in theaters, I loved it when I got the Extended Cut on DVD, and I still love it. I don’t get what everybody doesn’t like about this movie. It’s great! Honestly!
But we can always count on Screen Junkies to tell it like they see it, I suppose.
I really liked the Watchmen movie. It’s exciting and fun, and a great adaptation. But hey, it’s not perfect.
Cinema Sins does a pretty good job on the movie, but they once again get pinched by their choice not to consider the source material. I don’t think you can consider Doctor Manhattan’s crazy cool temporal existence powers to be a sin.
Oh Internet, how I love you. You deliver us joyous videos like this Star Wars/Age of Ultron mash-up.
This bit of greatness comes courtesy The Unusual Suspect, the genius that delivered the previous Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy mash-up. This man is doing the Internet Lord’s work, and we are all better for it. This Ultron video was especially good.
But wait, there’s more! How about this mash-up of The Avengers and Watchmen?
Considering Disney owns both Age of Ultron and Star Wars, they should hire this guy and make these videos legit marketing for both movies! General audiences would eat this stuff up! And The Unusual Suspect needs to become more famous.
