                 Justice League:
Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part 2
                                       review by Bobby Blakey

For years Warner Bros and DC Comics have been churning out some great animated features including Batman: Killing Joke, The Death of Superman, Batman: Soul of the Dragon and more recently Batman: Doom Comes To Gotham. With their film Superman: Man of Tomorrow they kicked off what they refer to as the Tomorrowverse that has currently spanned five other films and recently kicked off a new trilogy with Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths-Part One. Now the next chapter is on its way with the aptly titled Justice League Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part Two featuring the returning voices of Jensen Ackles, Darren Criss, Meg Donnelly and Stana Katic with Jeff Wamester returning to direct.  

Justice League Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part Two follows an endless army of Shadow Demons bent on the destruction of all reality swarms over our world and all parallel Earths! The only thing opposing them is the mightiest team of metahumans ever assembled. But not even the combined power of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and all their fellow superheroes can slow down the onslaught of this invincible horde. What mysterious force is driving them? And how do the long-buried secrets of the Monitor and Supergirl threaten to crush our last defense?


With this recent stream of DCU films in the Tomorrowverse it took me a while before I was really digging the thicker line art style. At this point I am kind of used to it and it’s grown on me. With this latest big endeavor, they have once again managed to kick off something pretty great. It continues to veer away from some elements of the source material, but the core of it is still intact. With everything 

that transpired in the first film I wasn’t sure where they were going to kick things off. I loved that it just dived right into a new place and direction that is pushing the story forward, but almost moving past the precious entry while still keeping it on the back burner to get back to.


The best thing about these stories is the chance to continue to offer up so many characters and variations of them. They have jam packed this second outing with tons of both as well as enough action to make you almost wonder how they squeezed a story in there. They keep it pretty tight, but still manage to bring plenty of heart into the mix to make you care about these characters and what Supergirl is going through.


The artwork is pretty much on par with the previous films in this series and looks great. It’s more standout with the bold lines as opposed to the thinner look we are used to, but I think it has found its groove and looks great. The voice actors all do a great job with their characters and getting to focus more on some different characters this time around continued the epic story, but makes it feel like something new. Hardcore fans will likely have some issues with the liberties, but if you just let it play out the way it does with this cast of icons then I think you will have a great time especially getting to see so many great characters that didn’t make it or not around during the original run of the comic.  


This release will not only include the next chapter of the new trilogy, but also bonus content including featurettes and a sneak peek at Justice League Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part Three.
