Anime NEXT 2006

Having recently covered Anime Boston, Toon Zone decided to send me off to the very heart of suburbia, the Meadowlands, for Anime NEXT. Staged across two hotels and the Meadowlands Exposition Center, Anime NEXT 2006 was the fifth edition of the event. Having grown from just over one thousand to over five thousand this year, […]

Putting the 'S' in "Super"

If you’re wanting Superman: Brainiac Attacks scrubbed from your mind, you’ll find no better brillo pad than volume three of Superman: The Animated Series (STAS), just out on DVD.

"Justice League: Season Two" - The DCU Strikes Back!

Warner Bros Home Video has once again dipped into its vast animation well and has treated us to a full season set of Justice League: Season Two, mere months after the opening season was released. After an incredibly lack luster initial season, I remember being anxious and I’ll admit, nervous, to see how how/if the […]

"Brainiac Attacks," and the Audience Loses

Superman: Brainiac Attacks is the kind of thing that makes you believe in parallel dimensions: places where Batman is evil, Spock wears a beard, and mullets are thought stylish. This new and appalling direct-to-DVD movie looks like a feature-length spin-off of the much-esteemed Superman: The Animated Series (STAS), but everything in it is creepily “off.” […]

Warner Home Video: "JLU" Season 1 DVD in 16x9, More

TheDigitalBits.com has posted the transcript of an online chat held on June 6 with executives from Warner Home Video. The highlight of the chat is the announcement that the first season boxed set of Justice League Unlimited will be presented in 16×9 widescreen, rather than the “matted” 4×3 full-screen format of earlier Justice League DVD […]
