Was there a “Mature Readers Only” version that I didn’t see? Remember:
Okay, you had to wait for another month to get this:
Did no-one think about that in 1991?
I have a feeling these will be all over the internet by the time you read this, but what the heck – I’m sharing the love.
It’s a set of wonderfully done jokes in a Golden Age style featuring Superman, the Justice Society, Batman and more, by artist Kerry Callen.

As should be abundantly clear by now (especially in light of recent posts) I’m something of a Lego fan so that, teamed up with a whole bunch of DC characters, should have made this the perfect film for me to watch yesterday afternoon.
Perfect? No. Enjoyable? Yes.
It’s a kids’ film and I’m a bloke in his late forties – definitely not the target audience. The story was simplistic and the moral is, like the original Lego Movie, that everything is awesome when you’re part of a team, rather than struggling along all by yourself. That said, it’s very funny in places – Bane kept cracking me up for some reason – particularly the start and the end, though the middle act plods a little, and the animation is superb. It’s not bad by any means and if you happen to go see it with kids into either Lego and/or Batman, I’m sure you’ll have a great time.
For me, though, three Batman Lego heads out of five.
This version might be more interesting than the original, I thought.
