Superman’s Red Trunks Return in Action Comics #1000

The countdown as on as the momentous Action Comics #1000 draws nearer and DC Comics is pulling out all of the stops with a jam-packed, star-studded comic.

The Jim Lee-drawn cover features a new costume that integrates a variety of classic and new elements. One thing that’s immediately noticeable is the return of the Man of Steel’s iconic red trunks which have been missing since DC’s 2011 New 52 reboot. Since Rebirth, DC has been slowly moving the “new” look to the old one bit by bit.

Action Comics #1000 will feature multiple stories and creators including the DC debut of Brian Michael Bendis, his first since switching over from Marvel in an exclusive deal. Marv Wolfman will pen a story based on unpublished art by Curt Swan. Richard Donner and Geoff Johns are teaming up with artist Olivier Coipel. Other contributors include Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, Paul Dini with José Luis García-López, Tom King with Clay Mann and Jordie Bellaire; Brad Meltzer with John Cassaday and Laura Martin; Louise Simonson with Jerry Ordway; Scott Snyder with Tim Sale and more to be announced.

Action Comics #1000 hits stores on April 18.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract coming April 18 to Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD

teentitans-3dWarner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment bring one of the most momentous Teen Titans plotlines in comics history to animated life with the all-new, feature-length film Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. Inspired by the 1984 DC story arc from Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on April 18, 2017.

The landmark Teen Titans story will be available on Blu-ray™ Deluxe Giftset ($39.99 SRP), Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP) starting April 18, 2017.  The Blu-rayTM Combo Pack includes the movie in high definition on Blu-ray Disc, a DVD, and a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet*.

Led by Starfire, the Teen Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin and the just-returned Nightwing – have built a cohesive team in their never-ending battle against evil; but their newest teammate, the mysterious and powerful Terra, may be altering that dynamic. Meanwhile, an ancient evil, Brother Blood, has awakened, and familiar foe Deathstroke is lurking in the shadows – both waiting to pounce. Ultimately, the Teen Titans will need to battle their enemies and their own doubts to unite and overcome the malicious forces around them in this twisting tale of intrigue, adventure and deception.

Christina Ricci (Zelda, Sleepy Hollow, The Addams Family) and the late Miguel Ferrer (NCIS: Los Angeles, RoboCop, Crossing Jordan) join the already established Teen Titans voice cast as Terra and Deathstroke, respectively. Returning Titans actors include Sean Maher (Firefly/Serenity, Batman: Bad Blood) as Nightwing, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Raven, Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place, The Fosters) as Blue Beetle, Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series) as Beast Boy, Kari Wahlgren (Phineas and Ferb, Legion of Superheroes) as Starfire, and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood) as Robin/Damian. Gregg Henry (Scandal, The Killing, Payback) voices the villainous Brother Blood.

The voice cast also includes Maria Canals-Barrera (Wizards of Waverly Place) as Jaime’s mother, Meg Foster (They Live) as Mother Mayhem, Crispin Freeman (Justice League Action, Batman: Arkham games) as Speedy,  Masasa Moyo (Young Justice) as Bumblebee, David Zayas (Gotham, Dexter) as Jaime’s father, Jason Spisak (Young Justice) as Kid Flash, and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Geeking Out) as … himself.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is directed by Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) from a screenplay by Ernie Altbacker (Justice League Dark). Sam Register is Executive Producer; James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) is Supervising Producer; and Alan Burnett (Justice League vs. Teen Titans) is co-Producer.

Review: Bullseye #1

bullseye__1Bullseye #1 finds one of our favorite bad guy assassins presumed dead and free from a SHIELD prison with a little help from The Hand, taking out a house full of Feds to get to an accountant turned snitch. Bullseye’s more than a little restless from trying to keep a low profile and his shady AF booking agent has some pretty unscrupulous assignments up for grabs to keep him occupied and covered in blood.

We get treated to two stories for the price of one. Both of them are to be continued in second issue and both storylines are thought out and intriguing enough to stand on their own, even with their briefness.

The first part of this two-fer issue has Bullseye on a search for maximum carnage and money leading him on a mission to Columbia to rescue the leader of a cartel head’s kid from an even more dangerous sadistic mobster. There’s more going on in the first half but you’ll have to read it to find out and yes, it is worth buying. “The Columbian Connection Part 1 is written with all the gritty old school Marvel style that made you love the dark side of Marvel to begin with. Writer Ed Brisson gives selfishness, realness and swag that we’ve grown to love on this underrated character. He writes him as a cocky, brash, sadistic bad ass and gives him a foe that’s just as equal. Guillermo Sanna gives the first story in this issue that old school Marvel flare we crave. His art has the same style that we fell in love with when we started reading back in day where NYC was a scary place and good and evil both lurked in the shadows. The nostalgia was on point and Morgan manages to give the pages hixbisn flare.

The second half of the issue, “If I Tell You… finds Bullseye at the tail end of the hunt for some stolen and erased data , while being chased by goons who want it back for their boss. The Marv Wolfman story is short, “sweet” and to the point. It’s a nice little side story that complements the main one and gives the readers a nice little bit of character nuances that will get even the newest Bullseye reader a decent primer (Which is pretty damn dope considering Wolfman is one of Bullseye’s original co-creators). Alec Morgan manages to convey the same nostalgic, old school 80s vibe that the first story gave us but, he adds some sleek modern touches to it. The difference is nice and not too jarring especially sine even there is a nice little ad to separate the stories giving your eyes a second to adjust.

Overall this issue as a whole was a solid read. The stories match up nicely and seem to complement each other. The two separate storylines also seem like if at some point they wanted to combine the two stories into one story, it would work well and it’s quite feasible that the storylines could interconnect. The first issue of Bullseye gave us two really good stand alone stories that prove that Bullseye doesn’t need the Devil of Hells Kitchen to be interesting or relevant.
