BOOSH!

Finally, a performance of the revamped Hal Jordan that does justice to the character.

The best part was where half his lines got cut out.

He was probably just being a dick in them.

Damnit, the title is blatant false advertising- it doesn't involve Julian Barratt or Noel Fielding. Your Boosh is weak and feeble!

I like comics and I like justice league. But if you are going to put in the time, why do a half-assed job.

The giggling in the background, the stupid voices, the reading unenergetic, yet phonetically correct reading of the sound effects.

May as well do it with LEGOS.

I thought the batman voice was OK. And the comic book cuts on youtube are good, all it needs are better voices.

BWOOSH! does not at all sound like I expected BWOOSH! to sound like when it's actually spoken.

What's the sound effect for the point completely flying over someone's head?

I assume this is a screencast from a comic book reader program that automatically does frame-by-frame. These guys don't seem disciplined enough to do that masking manually.

Could you explain the point to me? 'Cause I ain't getting it.

I'm pretty sure it's Comixology.

Mocking popular culture? Check.
Snarky? Check.
Intentionally bad performance? Check.

I forced myself to choke down the first five issues of this book out of loyalty to the brand but, jeez, it's so bad. This, however, is quite jolly and I'd happily follow the rest of the "story" in this format.

Wistfully harkens back to a mythical age of MeFi that doesn't exist? Check.

Its WOOSH!. It sounds like a jet engine and it missed me because I ducked. I am not going let myself get hit with a plane full of stupid.

A subtle joke wooshes like a softball or an arrow.

These guys may be able to get themselves a job doing morning radio, but only if they start laughing louder.

Comics Batman is getting rather one dimensional.

"The world's afraid of us...it's necessary."

The Shadow threatens harmless bystanders with handguns -- that's making the world afraid of you. Batman is frightening to criminals; children and police commissioners instinctively trust him. Even Frank Miller's Batman would pause to give children gentle advice on deportment from time to time.

Sorry everyone. I realized I was so annoyed because I had never seen that comic and I was trying to read it for the first time with a bunch of kids loudly mocking it, while reading over my shoulder. Once I realized this was my problem, I muted them. Now I have a decent comic reader for my phone. Nice post.

When I was about eight I did this with an old Dan Dare comic, emoting into a portable tape recorder and doing all the sound effects myself. You can only imagine how awesome it was...

Maybe a similar reading of comic I actually considered good would be just as funny, but part of what make this is hilarious to me is that Justice League #1 is a terrible comic that recasts the entire DC universe as angry teen baiting grimdark. Even Superman. And it's pretentious grimdark as well, all of which adds up to lulz.

I fear that'll sub-vocalise every Green Lantern comic I read in that voice now...

I was really hoping for something more like Wizard People.
