Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #3Print

Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #3

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #3

Released Digitally: May 19, 2015

"Vengeance is Mine"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Matt Haley
Inker: Matt Haley
Cover: Art Thibert and Thomas Mason

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    In terms of the Regime Superman/Montoya donnybrook, that was actually entertaining, though it might be the aftereffect of having seen Mad Max: Fury Road after breaking night. Montoya's despondency comes across very well, and does go some distances towards justifying her actions and excusing the nonsensical decision that she makes. It's questionable that she would be able to relapse on alcohol, as taking the super-pill should make her immune to the effects. Here is where a good writer can go deeper, explaining that the pill intensified her dependency, just as it exacerbated Jim Gordon's cancer, or, perhaps, Montoya isn't a relapse case at all, it's just her depression that allows her to believe such is the case. Her decision seems rash even with the caveats applied, as it comes suddenly and from nowhere. The Insurgency is at it's lowest ebb since Injustice has been offered, but it's far from a nadir. However, as we've been given a great amount of time and space since the Insurgency's last defeat, it's on the reader to fill in the chasms that are left in storytelling, which Injustice readers seem to be ready and raring to do. Still, Montoya's desperation comes across as genuine, and her fall will definitely be worthy of emoting for some readers, and in that it's a step up from the last two installments.

May 25, 2015: Documentary on Failed "Justice League: Mortal" Movie is ComingPrint

Justice League: Mortal It seems that the story behind failed DC Comics movie projects is a popular theme for documentary makers, with a feature-length documentary on the never-made "Justice League: Mortal" film by "Mad Max: Fury Road" director George Miller currently being planned.

    Short film director Ryan Unicomb is teaming with producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell and Sydney-based writer/author Maria Lewis to develop the documentary which will reportedly be an unbiased account of the superhero ensemble project's gestation, development and ultimate disintegration.

    Currently going by the working title of "Miller's Justice League Mortal," Unicomb is said to already have private investors lined up though he may augment that however with a crowd-funding campaign. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have been a part of the film along with showcasing some never-before-seen artwork and costumes.

Source: DarkHorizons.com.

With George Miller directing, "Justice League: Mortal" was set to star D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, rapper/actor Common as Green Lantern, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, and Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul. The Writer's strike in 2007 as well as a change in tax break advantages in Australia resulted in the project being cancelled.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence: Adventures of Superman #2Print

Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence: Adventures of Superman #2

Scheduled to arrive in stores: May 20, 2015

Cover date: July 2015

Writer: Marv Wolfman
Penciller: Roberto Viacava
Inker: Andy Owens
Cover: Mikel Janin

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    It's a pity we don't see Marv Wolfman's name in more superhero comic books. I've always enjoyed his work in general, and this book is well written. The only major flaw is that the series overall seems to be trying to cram four issues of story into half that amount. I don't want to blame Wolfman for that as it could have been an editorial decision for the entire crossover to be tied up in the main Convergence comic. This chapter is still one of the better ones in that event, and I'd recommend it to anyone.
