Tweet If you’re going to wander around exhausted and bewildered at The Con, you might as well have a reason. That’s where this year’s Adventure Time ConQuest comes in, an actual quest for treasure among the licensees! If I didn’t have to cover the damn thing, this is all I would do at the show. […]
Tweet 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 […]
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!
Tweet 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 […]
Tweet I could pretend that I wasn’t slightly baffled by this comic, and try to be objective about its visually appealing art and its rather nuanced storytelling, separating it surgically from the fact that I grew up with the cartoon and played endlessly with the He-Man figures with my siblings. But the more entrenched those […]
Tweet 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 […]
TweetBut 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 […]
After a long, lonely world without the seminal webcomic Achewood, creator Chris Onstad busted out a big rainbow of hope yesterday with the epic news that he’s been working on an animated series. He even gave us a clip of his efforts, above. And from there, to the big show:
The people at IDW are no slackards. After taking a look at the sales of their My Little Pony comics — their best selling comics EVER — and the current 90s cartoon nostalgia trend, they’ve pacted with Cartoon Network to bring out a bunch of old favorites—and current hits —in comics form, in a deal announced at last week’s ComicsPRO meeting in Atlanta. Titles include The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Johnny Bravo and Generator Rex.
TweetHello and welcome! We are starting a weekly art thingy and have -rather thoughtfully- set it for Friday, that interminable day where the weekend is within touching distance and yet you still have to be at work. Hence, pretty and cool stuff that will help tide you over- forget words, just feast your eyes. This […]
The other day the New York Times interviewed South Park’s Matt Stone which you should be able to read unfirewalled here, and Stone delivers a confirmation of Content as King:
Adventure Time comics have been a huge hit for Boom Studios, with variant covers by a who’s who of indie ad animation stars as eagerly sought after as the latest Alex Roos variant. And the franchise has shown enough legs to warrant a stand alone original graphic novel by Danielle Corsetto and Zack Sterling. The cover is by Stephanie Gonzaga.
Tweet Wow, come crazy nutters spent four months and 4000 photos to make this action figure stop motion recreation of the 1992 X-men cartoon’s opening. That bit where Logan morphs in Wolverine– TOTALLY BOSS. It’s the work of Kyle Roberts and Nathan Poppe, who have made several other stop motion intro sequences which you can […]
