Toonzone Presents: An Interview/Tribute to Dwayne McDuffie

Back in 2006, I briefly flirted with the notion of writing a book about superhero animation, its history and trajectory. It never came to fruition, partially because real life got in the way, and partially because I decided to refocus my energies on my biggest passion, which is voice acting.

"Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths": One Plus One Equals Two-and-a-Half

Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is a nifty little gem of a movie, an unpretentious but thoroughly entertaining story that, probably, would have more appropriately been titled Justice League: When Archetypes Collide. It takes the old sci-fi trope about parallel worlds populated by moral mirror-images, and— Well, it doesn’t really do anything new or […]

The Arc of the DC Universe Is Long, But It Bends Toward "Justice"

Justice League is the crowning spire on the grand cathedral that is the DC Animated Universe, one of the greatest achievements of American television animation. And yet Bruce Timm, genius loci of the DCAU, initially abhorred the idea of making it. It would be hard enough to craft a suitably epic story for a half-dozen […]

Toons of the 2000s: The End of DCAU - A Retrospective

 Go back to the Toons of the 2000s Intro.   It begins under a full moon. Gotham is enjoying a rare, crime-free night. The cops in their patrol zeppelin are alone with the clouds and their boredom. Then, from nowhere, a swift, shadowy creature soars through the sky. “You see that?” one of the cops cries. Yes, we do. […]

"Justice League: The New Frontier": The Brave and the Bold and the Little Bit Bonkers

Justice League: The New Frontier opens with two of the loveliest animated sequences ever glimpsed outside a Brad Bird film. In the prologue an unseen artist paints and narrates a spooky tale about the rise and incipient return of the monstrous “Centre.” The colors are bold but perhaps slightly divergent from the usual primaries; the […]
