So, yeah…  that’s like 5 hours of awesome action animation for the evening after Thanksgiving.  Best part is, none of it overlaps.  Of course, to me, G.I. Joe: Renegades is the highlight of it, but Young Justice looks amazing, Avengers has been terrific, and I’m looking forward to Transformers: Prime, too.  Wow there is some great animated series on the air right now.  It’s almost like the comic book-heavy 90’s again!

Here are some videos to wet your whistle…I know I can’t wait!

So, uhh…is it too late to jump on the DC Comics bandwagon?

So, for Joefans, SDCC is already mostly done.  Renegades info flooded in on Thursday, we got IDW stuff yesterday.  Sideshow is doing their thing tomorrow, but by and large, we’re ready to move on.

However, the rest of the comic world is still trucking right along, and while I don’t read a whole lot of comics these days, I still really love the concept of super heroes and I try to catch as much of that stuff as possible in other media.  And holy crap does DC Comics have that covered with two awesome looking events coming up.

First of all, the new animated series Young Justice.  Not being a comic fan, I don’t know who the hell Young Justice is, other than apparently the Teen Titans, only no longer called the Teen Titans.  Didn’t we have a Teen Titans cartoon a few years ago?  Now they want another one?  Well, once I saw this video feature, I want another one, too.  This looks like a whole lot of fun, and I love how connected the Justice League is!  Check the video out below.

But of course the really “holy shit” moment so far of SDCC to me, is the cinematic teaser for the DC Universe Online MMORPG (or however the hell that acronym goes).  Now, not only am I not really a DC fan, but I pretty much can’t stand MMORPG’s so there’s no way in hell I’ll ever play this, but this cinematic teaser makes me regret not having 20 spare hours a week to devote to a video game.  It is…  stunning.  Absolutely stunning.

Is that some crazy stuff or what?  Great googly moogly.  I love SDCC.
