JUSTICE LEAGUE HEROES Interview

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

This time it’s me:

“I set out to be as true to the comic book versions of the characters as I could,” explained the acclaimed writer. “This meant leaving some of my well developed ‘Justice League Unlimited’ chops behind and going back to the source material, the comic books. What I hope we’ve achieved is to recreate the experience of reading a Justice League comic, with the extra-added pleasure of allowing the player to control the action. ‘Justice League Heroes’ is a comic book you can play.”

I’ve just been talked into going to next week’s San Diego Comicon International. I literally just decided today, so my schedule is loose. I’ve been added to the following panel on Friday:

3:00-4:00 The Black PanelíńÓ Featuring Reggie Hudlin (president, BET), RZA (Wu Tang Clan), Jeffery Wright (CEO, Urban Ministries), Denys Cowan (senior VP, BET Animation), Mike Davis and Mark Davis (Blokhedz), and Axel Alonso (editor, Marvel Comics). This is the definitive panel for what's up in black content, and black content is hip content. Moderated by Michael Davis. Room 6A

NEW INVITEES ON THE PANEL:

DWAYNE MCDUFFIE – co-founder, Milestone, story editor and then some, JUSTICE LEAGUE, writer, BEYOND!

JOHN DOKES – head of marketing, Marvel Comics

also, Axel is EXECUTIVE EDITOR at Marvel

Apparently, “black content is hip content.” Reet!

I’ll keep adding to this thread as I learn more about my schedule. Hope to see some of you there.

“Justice League – Time To Go Unlimited!! First Season Set Of JLU Comes To DVD!

Posted by David Lambert

7/12/2006

Power up! The Justice League gets lots more power as they go unlimited! In it’s 3rd season, Cartoon Network’s Justice League series morphed into Justice League Unlimited, adding many more of the superheroes from the DC Comics universe. The first season of this version of the show is coming to DVD on October 24th, as a 4-disc set. $44.98 SRP includes 26 episodes with over 10 hours of DC Comics legendary superheroes, and these special features:

* And Justice for All: The Process of Revamping the Series with New Characters and a New Creative Direction.

* Themes of Justice: Choose Your Favorite JLU Musical Theme Audio Tracks.

* Creators’ Commentary on “This Little Piggy” and ‘The Return”.

Stay tuned for box art. For now, here is Warner’s description of the set:

Too much power, some think. From their Watchtower in space, the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and J’onn J’onzz – floats above Earth, with countless new members including Green Arrow, Supergirl and Captain Atom. Their combined powers are awesome. And although these superheroes fight crime, eradicate evil and save the world over and over again, a conspiracy against them is growing. Led by the government, funded by Lex Luthor and fueled by a hidden enemy, Cadmus is born. The mission: to take down the Justice League. It’s 26 episodes of action, intrigue and excitement in a 4-disc collection that any superhero fan should own! Plus, don’t miss the shocking Epilogue that reveals the legacy of Batman!

So it looks like seasons one and two in a single release. And look, John Stewart finally made the cover of a season set!
