Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup are back! The proto riot-grrls of Saturday morning were created by Craig McCracken for the Cartoon Network back in 1998, and created an immediate sensation. While the show hasn’t been on the air in a while, IDW is bringing them back in a new comic written and drawn by Troy Little […]
Cartoonist Michael Kupperman is, as we all know one of the world’s funniest humans. Tales Designed to Thrizzle proves that. He’s also obsessed with Mark Twain, something also proved by Thrizzle. And now, he’s made a cartoon about Twain’s wacky adventures aboard a raft made of garbage, now available on Adult Swim. If you poke […]
Although it only aired Sunday night, in a Flash (heh heh get it????) Vulture hired Matt Czap to animate the proposed Star Trek episode pitched in a stoned haze by supprting character Badger. The story involves pie and a transporter, may possibly be a sequel to Stand By Me, and was actually debated for years on the Breaking Bad set.
Well. when he isn’t talking about how to deal with rejection, it turns out Evan Dorkin and partner Sarah Dyer have been writing some Metal Men shorts for DC Nation. This is a particularly nice circle to come full since year’s ago he had a Metal Men mini series stopped mid-stream. Dorkin also worked on […]
by Matt O”Keefe IDW recently announced that in October it will be publishing a Samurai Jack as a comic book series that picks up the story where the animated series left off. I spoke with writer Jim Zub about what to expect from the book. We also discussed the headline-grabbing fourth arc of Skullkickers. We can […]
THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK is one of my favorite SF films of the last decade, even though it’s a mad jumble of elements: wanted criminal Riddick, last of the Furyons, necromongers, scheming for a throne, a strange underworld, and ethereal sprites played by Judi Dench. As I wrote in my original review, it was confusing, […]
The best superhero stories are all about inspiring people, and the first trailer for Burka Avenger, the first-ever animated series produced in Pakistan, certainly does that. Created by Haroon – one of the bigger pop stars in the country – the series will be about a burkha-wearing superhero called Jiya.
Hub, a cable channel for kids owned by Discovery and Hasbro, is hoping its new cartoon “SheZow” can turn the channel’s fortunes around. Hub has struggled to gain viewers since its debut in 2010, but it’s betting a 12-year-old boy named “Guy” who transforms into a female superhero, complete with a purple skirt and cape, […]
Phone time! Earlier today our lovely old antique phone started ringing from somewhere in Stately Beat Mansion’s attic, so I braved the cabinets and cobwebs to pick up the receiver and see what was going on. It turned out Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, VP of Animation Cort Lane and Executive Producer, Man Of Action Studio’s Joe Kelly were on the line, to discuss the new Marvel cartoon series Avengers Assemble which’ll be airing on Disney XD!
With Disney owning Marvel and all their characters, it was expected that they’d eventually set their film-makers to work on a Marvel Universe project – however, I doubt anybody would have expected that project to be Big Hero 6. And yet here we are, with a release date set for next year and footage already […]
Coinciding with all of the big C2E2 announcements from just about every comics publisher, IDW released some information about more than one upcoming series bringing the characters created by Jay Ward to comics. The two big titles will include MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN, leading up to a March 2014 film release from DreamWorks Animation in […]
Kyle Baker has posted a very short animation test for what appears to be an animated version of Cowboy Wally, a strong contender for funniest graphic novel of all time. (Man, it took some real detective work to figure that one out, right?) Those of you predisposed to get excited about this, now is the […]
But it’s the Rugburn-produced motion comic AXE COP—not the yet-to-premiere animated version that will debut in July as part of Fox’s ADHD adult animation block. Whoa, are you confused yet? Perhaps. But the bottom line is…there can not be too much AXE COP. You’ll recall that the webcomic is written by 5-year-old Malachi Nicolle and […]
