Pretty good, but pretty short.

This review is from: Robot Chicken (DC Comics Special) (DVD)
So, it's 23 minutes (+2 hours bonus features) for ten bucks. Have to agree with those people who said that it would be nice if those "bonus features" included all of the previous DC Comics character segments from past seasons of Robot Chicken. As it is, the bonus features are two different audio commentaries, a "pop-up" fun-facts version of the special, a behind the scenes feature, and some deleted sketches (not actually filmed; audio with storyboards). So, it depends on how much of a hardcore Robot Chicken and/or DC fan you are whether this will be worth it to you. It's about the same as the RC Star Wars specials in terms of content, so be forewarned.
The one really odd thing I found (as a toy collector and DC fan) in watching this special was the odd mix of classic Mego-style action figures with the regular larger size "DC Universe Classic" (Mattel) figures and "DC Direct" action figures. I wish they had gone either all Mego-style or all modern-style, because mixing the two types together in one sketch gives the viewer a strange feeling of incongruity. Other than that, the material is pretty funny.
