DC UPDATE: I Am Personally Going to Assassinate Geoff Johns

Ok, not really. But that was a great headline, right? Right?! Anyway... Yesterday marked the beginning of DC Comics' "Zero Month", in which all of DC's titles would be numbered 0 for the month of September, marking the end of the first year of DC's The New 52 relaunch. I went on record last year saying this wouldn't last a year. I stand corrected, because there are as yet no signs that DC will revert back to the pre-Flashpoint continuity. The tagline for Zero Month is "New Characters Introduced. Secret Origins Told. Mysteries Revieled". It is about one of the new characters introduced that I would like to rant and rave about, and why I spent three hours last night praying that Geoff Johns would be smited with gross boils all over his pretty boy face.

EPISODE REVIEW: SMALLVILLE: "Absolute Justice" (Season 9, Episode 11)

Tonight, a grand experiment.  Could Smallville portray comic book superheroes in a way that was faithful to their comic book roots?  Could a visually outlandish character like Hawkman be translated on a small screen budget?  Could Geoff Johns bring the Justice Society to Smallville without making it a laughing stock?  Well,  what are you waiting for?  Make the leap below!

TV REVIEW: Smallville: Legion

According to the schedule, they are re-running this episode opposite Dollhouse and Caprica over on the WB CW.  It's notable for a couple of reasons:

  1. It's a really good episode
  2. It's written by Geoff Johns, who wrote the Smallville "Movie" Total Justice that is airing next week.

So I'm rerunning the review I wrote of it last year.  Don't sweat it, I'll also have Batman and a new Smallville review up tonight as well.

Okay. This is going to be a quick one. Impressive. Geoff Johns, noted comic writer, wrote this episode of Smallville and in doing so, he managed to address Smallville's noted departure from the Superman mythos, throw easter eggs and metacommentary in while maintaining and extending the Smallville universe. RECAP (minor spoilers)

TEASER: Smallville:Total Justice

Below the jump, we have the teaser for the Total Justice Smallville movie that has now been moved to the beginning of November Sweeps.

This is becoming even more interesting as it approaches: It started as one episode, got expanded to two, made into a TV movie and now moved from January to February. This sort of move indicates that the CW execs are very excited about this Smallville project and might indicate some sort of new life for this series. If it does well, I'd anticipate an early renewal announcement and/or a continuation or spinoff series.
