There’s going to be zords. There’s going to be putty patrollers. There’s SURELY going to be some Bulk and Skull action! NOW we’re finally talking!

This is the future of comics! The old generation of TV show revivals is dead.Bring back Beetleborgs! Bring back Street Sharks! Bring back ALPHA FIVE!

Ai Ai Ai Ai Ai Ai Ai!!
