DC Nation on Toon

This morning saw the debut of the weekly DC Nation animation block on Cartoon Network. I liked it!

The computer animation on Green Lantern seems ideal for that series and it is strikingly beautiful. Young Justice featured Witch Boy and his cat Teekl as the antagonists and it's always a pleasure to see the creations of Jack Kirby extend their reach. The minute or two of Plastic Man was a fun trifle, but I could have done without the clay-faced and British-child-voiced superheroes in the other short.

Something had led me to believe that DC Nation was going to be a ninety minute block of cartoons so I was a little disappointed to see it end after just one hour. But enough quibbling. As I said, I liked it!
