Later this week a little movie called Justice League opens, and I was curious what might be waiting at the comic shop should anyone wander in after seeing the movie. I hate to say, there’s not much new, and what there is might be confusing. So here’s where this special Road to Justice League edition of Heroes and Villains comes into play. Meet me after the jump so I can let you know what is out right now, and what you should be reading when it comes to Justice League.

Clonsters: Fun For All Ages

If you’ve been following my work here at Biff Bam Pop! you’ll know that I’m on something of a journey to discover comics that are beyond the limited spectrum of mainstream super hero books. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a weekly reader of my favorite heroes and escapist adolescent power fantasies. In fact, I’m the first to argue that there’s some really great work being done by the Big Two publishers right now if you’re willing to look for it. However, I’m always left wanting more.

That’s where’s Clonsters from Amy Shand, Pat Shand, and Vanessa Cardinali and comes in.

Road to Justice League with DK’s Wonder Woman and JL Ultimate Guides

This Friday sees the release of the long-awaited Justice League film.

Casinos Look To Comic Books For Inspiration

Comic books have been the inspiration for many things over the years. They have been developed into blockbuster movies, video games and merchandise over the years thanks to their popularity with a huge number of people and it’s no surprise that slot developers have also used them as a source of inspiration when it comes to theming their games. These sort of slot games aren’t just sought after by comic book fans either, they’re appealing to the wider market due to them offering more than the more traditional and generic sorts.

Slot developers these days are always on the lookout for ways to attract new players as well as being able to keep people playing for longer. With slot games generally being based on luck, it’s important to keep players interested and to make the games more immersive. By theming slots it makes them instantly more appealing and by using comic books for inspiration it adds sort of an adventure and superhero element to the games.

Justice-League-2So far we’ve seen the likes of Justice League, The Flash, Superman and Batman turned into slot games. In fact, you’d be hard pushed not to find a Marvel or DC character based slot game in every online casino around today. Marvel heroes have statistically proven themselves to be very successful in the slot world with many people loving playing alongside their favourite character in an attempt at winning big. Comic book based slots look great too as developers really take the time to produce eye catching visuals as well as authentic audio throughout. Read the rest of this entry
