Superman/Shazam!: The Return Of Black Adam: A Good One #20

A collection of animated shorts with a anime feel, the first is an updated Captain Marvel origin story where Supes and the Big Red Cheese spend about 20 minutes whomping on Black Adam. The second is an eerie although slight Spectre story in a Grindhouse style. The third is an average Green Arrow story. I don't care for the new Green Arrow costume, and if Black Canary's not wearing the fishnet tights then it really isn't Black Canary now is it? She's worn them for nearly 70 years, so why the hell should she stop now? And the fourth is a grim Jonah Hex story. I never much cared for Jonah Hex, but this one was ok. An average attempt overall (Justice League: A New Frontier is very good and you should check it out for it's Silver Age look), but it's nice to see animated adventures of lesser seen characters. Not recommended for small children due to violence, some racy language, a little blood, and some corpses. But then again, comic books really haven't been for children since the early 1970's. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
