Japan’s Toho Studios Will Release an Animated ‘Godzilla’ Movie in 2017

Godzilla the Series
Toho Co., Ltd.

While I’ve never really been a big fan of the Godzilla movies, I find the culture of fandom that surrounds the movies absolutely fascinating. There have been so many Godzilla movies over the years  —  so many creatures vanquished by the King of the Monsters  —  that it would seem nearly impossible to keep it all straight. And yet, I know many fans of the Godzilla movies who speak to the various incarnations of the character and his rogue’s gallery of enemies with absolute ease.

Adam West, Burt Ward, And Julie Newmar Return For Animated ‘Batman’ Movie; There May Be Hope For This Fallen World

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader

If there's one thing that has made the nightmare of existence worth it over the past few years, it's been the revival of and new appreciation for the classic Batman television show. Between the long-awaited release of the series on DVD and the new adventures that have been running in the Batman '66 comic book, it's been a good time to be a fan of what is unquestionably the greatest mass-media incarnation of the Dynamic Duo.

otto_featured

Otto Messmer will be forever associated with one character, and it's a character he didn't even get credit for creating until years after the fact.

Messmer was born in Union City, New Jersey (then called West Hoboken) on August 16, 1892. As a student at the Thomas School of Art in New York City from 1911–1913, he provided illustrations for fashion catalogs as part of a work-study program with the Acme Agency. But what he really wanted to do was get into the relatively new artform of animation. He was fascinated by early cartoons like Winsor McCay's How a Mosquito Operates, and was already drawing his own comics for local papers by the age of 20.

Pint-Sized-Heroes

Funko is pretty much the ruler of the vinyl collectible game at this point, with lines such as Mystery Minis, Dorbz, and of course the ever-present and rapidly expanding line of Funko Pops that everyone has at least two of.
