DVD Preview: Justice League: The New Frontier

A new Justice League DVD is coming this February and it's definitely an epic! Justice League: The New Frontier is the new title from Warner Premiere and DC Universe that tells the origin of the justice league from a fresh perspective.

From the words of the producers:
Inspired by the best-selling graphic novel by Darwyn Cooke and produced by the multiple Emmy® award winning animation legend, Bruce Timm, The New Frontier is the epic tale of the founding of the Justice League. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are all here of course, and so are Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Flash - whose incredible origins will be told for the very first time. Strangers at first, these very different heroes must overcome fear and suspicion to forge an alliance against a monster so formidable, even the mighty Superman can not stop it. If they fail, our entire planet will be “cleansed” of humanity.
The animation of this movie has a distinct style which reminds me of the old Batman animated series, but with a more "old school" production design. Here's a look at the animation:

The series does look interesting, with the Justice League featuring throwback versions of the Green Lantern and the Flash.

Another thing to take note of is the special features included in the 2-disc edition of The Frontier. It contains three select episodes of Justice League Unlimited, a sneak peek of the anime-style series Batman: Gotham Knight, a documentary on the Golden Age to the Silver Age of the DC Universe and features on the Justice League and its rival, the Legion of Doom.

The DVD is obviously feature-rich and a nice addition to not just any DVD collection, but also a worthy collectible in your comic book keepers.
