A few weeks ago, I spoke briefly about Batman: Shadow of Sin Tzu, the companion comic to the 2003 video game Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu. Well, that wasn’t the only game to see a comic book tie in.
Justice League Heroes: Falling Star is a three-part video podcast available on iTunes, serving as a largely self-contained prequel for 2006’s Justice League Heroes video game. Well, less a video and more of a panel by panel slideshow with voice acting… the craft of motion comics was very new at the time and DC would be the first major company to adopt it in 2008, two years after this podcast hit the net. (This podcast is based on a promo issue tie in which you could theoretically find in print if you desired – Ian)
But as primitive as it may be, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern John Stewart, Martian Manhunter, and Zatanna’s battle against Brainiac with the backdrop of Gotham City beats ten minutes of advertisements. I’ll admit, seeing this even made me want to play the game a little… and seeing how it’s a PS2 and Xbox release, you could probably pick it up cheap if you could find it at all.
But hey, if we had any money we’d be buying comic books.
So enjoy this freebie and I’ll see you soon with some more stuff!
