September 18, 2014: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 172nd episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

This time out Mike and Jeff finish up their look at the Elseworlds Annuals from 1994. The boys kick things off with SUPERBOY ANNUAL #1, which concludes the "Super Seven" story from ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN ANNUAL #6. Will the heroes defeat the alien invaders? Will everyone make it out alive? Well, yes and no, but you've have to listen to the episode to figure out the hows and whys of those answers. Then events go back to the Revolutionary War in the pages of ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #6 and we learn what would happen if one of Superman's ancestors came to Earth and was a huge jerk. Finally there's another period piece in STEEL ANNUAL #1 where John Henry was born before the American Civil War and there's armor (as you would imagine) and Arthurian references and a heaping, helping dose of racism.

Next time: Four words...SUPERMAN...DOOMSDAY...HUNTER...PREY!

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.


September 17, 2014: Justice League Animated Miniseries Set for 2015Print

Justice League MACHINIMA PARTNERS WITH WARNER BROS. AND DC ENTERTAINMENT FOR ORIGINAL SERIES JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES THREE-PART ANIMATED SHORTFORM SERIES FROM BRUCE TIMM AND ALAN BURNETT FEATURES BATMAN, WONDER WOMAN AND SUPERMAN IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

In the first programming collaboration since Warner Bros.' investment in Machinima earlier this year, the global many 2 many programming service for fanboys and videogamers announced today that it has greenlit the new animated shortform series JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES, from Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett (both producers of the legendary Batman: The Animated Series). The digital series is based on Justice League: Gods & Monsters, an original animated film executive produced by Timm and co-produced by Burnett that will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment later in 2015. Chronicles will focus on alternate versions of DC Comics' iconic Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

"Ever since we announced the Warner Bros. strategic investment, we have been looking for a new and exciting way to tap into the company's unmatched content. With JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES, Machinima will be the very first place fans can experience a new vision for DC Comics' beloved Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman characters. In addition, we have built a first-of-its-kind package for brands to engage with these characters to reach Machinima's elusive audience," stated Chad Gutstein, Machinma's CEO.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES marks the first project from Warner Bros.' newly formed digital content production unit, headed up by Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series.

Sam Register said: "We couldn't be happier to be announcing our first new digital series today, and we're even more excited that it's a collaboration with such accomplished storytellers as Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett, who have been responsible for some of the most innovative and creative DC Universe projects. We can't wait for fans to have a chance to see the world they have created when JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES debuts on Machinima next year."

"We are committed to delivering DC Entertainment's extensive line-up of world-class characters and stories to audiences across all platforms and formats," stated DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson. "JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES is an exciting opportunity to bring alternate versions of DC Comics' iconic Justice League characters to Machinima, and we look forward to bringing this new animated shortform series to life with our partners across Warner Bros."

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES explores a newly conceived reality in the DC Universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the Super Heroes that people think they know. The episodes are expected to debut on Machinima in spring 2015, weeks before the launch of the film. More details on each episode of JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS CHRONICLES will be released in the upcoming months.


September 17, 2014: Tom Taylor Talks "Injustice: Year Three"Print

Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #24 With the digital release of "Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #24" out this week, writer Tom Taylor wraps up the second year of "Injustice: Gods Among Us", but will push right in to Year Three with no delay, with Chapter 1 of the new volume kicking off September 30.

IGN.com caught up with Tom to find out where things are at with the comic book series, and what fans can expect from "Regime Superman". Here's part of the interview...

    We saw Superman avoid defeat by accepting a Sinestro Corps ring. Will he continue to wield that ring in Year Three? Does its influence play a part in his continual evolution from hero to the tyrant we saw in the game?

    Taylor: I can't say too much on this but yes, he will be wearing the Yellow Ring when you see him next, and its power and Sinestro's influence will still be warping him. But someone is coming to change all of this...

    Batman's forces didn't defeat Superman's regime, but they did at least score a moral victory in terms of exposing Superman's actions to the world. How will that play out during Year Three? Is there a growing sense of unrest in the world?

    Taylor: Absolutely. Thanks to Black Canary, the world has seen the truth. The Man of Steel is someone to be feared now.

    Batman tried to defeat Superman through sheer force and failed. Is that why he turns to John Constantine and the magical realm for help in Year Three?

    Taylor: Batman and his team did pull off a lot of victories in Year Two. They dealt some pretty big blows to Superman's regime. But Superman is still standing. John Constantine knows that, short of a swift kick to the bollocks with big, sturdy Kryptonite boots, Superman's main vulnerability is magic.
