Superman: Secret Origin
For our very first weekly recommendation column I thought I would go with something a little different. I recently had the chance to check out Superman: Secret Origin, which was a six issue comic about well Superman’s origin. This can be seen as the definitive Superman Origin story, and while origin’s aren’t really anything new especially when it comes to Superman this story was a great read and it felt fresh. The artwork as well is quite fantastic to look at, and overall this is an amazing effort. The six different parts are as follows: The Boy of Steel, Superboy and the Legion of Super-heroes, Mild-Mannered Reporter, Parasites, Strange Visitor and The End. If you want a good starting point with Superman this is a great way to start, you won’t regret checking this one out.

Batman: Under The Red Hood
After a string of solid and enjoyable straight-to-dvd films (highlights including Superman: Doomsday, Wonder Woman and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths), DC Animated Original Movies deliver, in my opinion, there best one yet with Batman: Under the Red Hood. The film follows Batman five years after the death of Jason Todd, his 2nd Robin, at the hands of the Joker, as he battles a new foe called the Red Hood. A mysterious vigilante who has plans on becoming the biggest crime lord in Gotham City. As Batman tries to find out what the Red Hood is really up to, he discovers the shocking truth of who he really is (I could say more of the plot but I don’t want ruin what happens). Taking clues in both style and tone of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films (Batman Begins & The Dark Knight), this is a dark, complex, compelling and stylishly animated film that features terrific voice work from it’s cast (which includes Bruce Greenwood, Jensen Ackles, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Isaacs and John DiMaggio). If you are a big of the previous DC Animated Original Movies or Batman in general, than this is definitiely worth checking out. It’s pretty damn awesome if I say so myself.
