Darwynian theory.

Harry Knowles shows a lotta love to the straight-to DVD animated version of Darwyn Cooke's THE NEW FRONTIER. But is Harry a reliable critic these days? Hmm.

I saw Bruce Timm's adaptation of the whole DEATH OF SUPERMAN chimichanga DOOMSDAY last week - it was pretty good, it held my interest, and should definitely be seen by any fans of Kevin Smith's SUPERMAN LIVES script (very similar in places and overall tone). But I admit I'm expecting more from the Cooke cartoon. For starters, the source material is much better - always a good start.
