JL8: A Refreshing Re-Imagining


In honor of the long overdue Sci-5ive lunch that I’m going to attend today, sharing a little gold nugget of a comic strip that a friend posted on my Facebook wall a couple of weeks ago. If you like/love the Justice League, especially Batman, and GOOD comic strips, check this one out. It starts out a little slow, but really starts getting good around strip 10-12. There are a lot of cameos and inside jokes for the well-versed superhero fan and the continuous story keeps you coming back for more.

Here’s a little tease with one of my faves from JL8 (I think it stands for Justice League 8 y/o).

JL8_23If you watched JL/JLU animated, this strip is like a full series based upon one of my fave episodes, Child’s Play!!

Check out JL8 from the very beginning here. You can thank me later ;).

(p.s. There are currently 103 strips and, from what I understand, new strips are added twice a week.)



The Daly Show


No, that’s not a typo in “Daly.” So, if you don’t already know, I’m a big comic books, cartoons, sci-fi nerd. Although Tim Daly currently stars in ABC’s Private Practice, he provided the voice of Superman/Clark Kent on the animated series for about a decade and occasionally revisits the role. Well, I just discovered this weekend that he is also staring in his very own YouTube series, The Daly Show, with his son Sam Daly.

Nathan Fillion currently stars in ABC’s Castle, but is beloved by Joss Whedon fans everywhere as the hero, Mal, on Firefly and the antagonist, Captain Hammer, in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog. He’s also taken a few stints voice acting in DC (Detective Comics, not deep conditioner … *lol*) animated flicks. In this episode, The Daly Superheroes, Nathan Fillion guest stars.

Anywho, if you know anything about any of the things I referenced above, you may find this just as hilarious as I do. If you find superheroes ridiculous or don’t have a clue who Tim Daly and Nathan Fillion are, you should probably take a pass on this one ;). *lol*

“Fly my cape! Fly my cape!”

(p.s. There are seven episodes in the series and the hilarity is cumulative. So, if you like what you see, you should definitely check out the others.) 

A Count or a Bat?


The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite movies. When I saw it, I just knew that Jim Caviezel should be Batman.  I thought that the young Albert would have made a worthy Robin as well. Alas, it was not meant to be. I found Bale suitable for the role and Albert is now Superman. We’ll see how that works out for him (the movie is looking a little suspect from what I’ve seen before … I just can’t do the trunkless Supes.  Just can’t.).

Did you SEE him walking down the stairs in the robe?!?! What?! If you haven’t seen this movie and you like a good revenge story, with action, romance, and heart, you should really check this one out.
