Has Doomsday Come for Superman Again?

Reviews are coming in from around the net about the newly-released Superman: Doomsday DVD, and they are mixed, at best.  I haven’t seen it yet, but I typically have faith in Bruce Timm and his creative vision of the DC Universe.  Justice League Unlimited was outrageously good, though, admittedly, not everything the Timm/Dini team created was up to that same standard (the first season of Justice League immediately comes to mind).  For some unknown reasons, the creative team decided to ditch the usual voice talent (Tim Daly, Clancy Brown, etc) for what I can only guess are perceived as higher-profile voice talents (though I’m not certain anyone considers Anne Heche or Adam Baldwin to be A-List talent).

Have any readers here seen the DVD? What are your thoughts?

Batman and the Anguish of Guilt!

Some things simply don’t require any further comment.  I never thought of Bruce Wayne as the Raskolnikov type, but maybe there’s something to the idea….

Brian Hughes has a great write-up in Again With the Comics about “Dostoyevsky Comics” by R. Sikoryak, an amazing comic book adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” featuring Batman. It was originally published in 2000 as part of Drawn and Quarterly #3 and here are all the full scans of the comic.
