Lion Forge Comics' new all-ages imprint ROAR Comics released the first issues of two new digital series today on formats such as the Kindle, based on some of the most iconic kids' shows of the 1980s and 1990s. The new Saved by the Bell series goes back to Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, Jesse Spano, A.C. Slater, Lisa Turtle and Screech's freshman year at Bayside High. Punky Brewster likewise takes its title character back to the beginning of her TV story, as she looks for a new home.
Welcome, fellow traveller, to the ComicsAlliance recap of the February episode of Agents of SHIELD. Yes, we're only getting one episode this month. Weep or cheer, depending on your established bias.
The title of this month's episode is T.R.A.C.K.S., which doesn't appear to stand for anything, and if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything, which reminds me, maybe this is the episode when everything turns around? Spoilers follow!
The actor, whose role as Agent Coulston in various films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has led to him starring in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD series on ABC, is aware that many critics and fans are frustrated with the show so far, with some stating that they have all but given up on it, while others are forced to watch it for our amusement. Well, if you're one of the people who has quit on SHIELD., Gregg has a message for you. Speaking with The Salt Lake Tribune on the set of the show, Gregg had the following to say about fans, or Marvel "geeks," who have given up on the show due to the lack of appearances by more characters from the Marvel Universe: "Those aren’t geeks. Those are losers."
Fans who were hoping that Grant Gustin's Barry Allen and Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak would cement their budding Arrow romance on The CW's upcoming spinoff Flash series should take note, because Smoak's got some competition now.
The series has cast actress Candice Patton, who viewers may know from the BET sitcom The Game or from a few episodes of Heroes, to play Iris West, the woman that Barry married in the comics (before that all got erased in Flashpoint).
The competition was brutal during last weekend's Annie Awards, the International Animated Film Society's celebration of an uncommonly strong year in animation for film, television, commercials and games. For example, it stung to see our beloved Teen Titans Go! lose the award for Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production For Children’s Audience, but that the winner was the similarly excellent Adventure Time made the pill easier to swallow. But easier still was the master Katsuhiro Otomo taking home the Winsor McCay Award for lifetime achievement in animation. That pill is good for health.
The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animatedseries. This week: We head back to the Savage Land, and no, I'm not any happier about it than you are.
The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, there are no Graboids or Kevin Bacon, but there is another earthquake machine and Michael Jai White.
Over the past 20 years, the music of Batman: The Animated Series, composed by a team led by the amazing Shirley Walker, has been praised to the high heavens. There's a good reason for that, too, since it's basically amazing, but one of the side effects is that it's overshadowed the music of Warner Bros Animation's other shows based on the DC Comics supheroes. Now, two of them are finally getting their due in the form of a special edition release from La-La Land Records.
Released this week, the four-disc soundtrack album for the classic 1990s Superman: The Animated Seriesand a two-disc set for contemporary favorite Batman: The Brave and the Bold are now shipping from La-La Land, with selections from the best episodes of each series, comprising hours of audio alongside in-depth liner notes.
Season two of Nickelodeon's CG animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has expanded the show's cast of characters significantly, but for as many hideous new mutants as it's introduced, the show's also welcomed a steady stream of new vehicles. Both figure prominently into the latest batch of Playmates products arriving in toy stores in the near future, as stores welcome new figures of Mutagen Man, Kirby Bat and a Squirrelanoid, plus vehicles like the Shell Flyer, the Grass Kicker and the Turtle Sub.
