Marc Maron Teams With Tony Moore For One-Panel ‘Maron’ Recap Comics

Maron-Tony-Moore-main

Comedian Marc Maron has a super-popular podcast, WTF, and a television show about his life and named for him on IFC. The next step had to be comics, didn't it?

According to a post on the IFC Tumblr, Maron is teaming up with original The Walking Dead artist and Fear Agent co-creator Tony Moore to craft weekly, one-panel recaps of each episode of the Maron TV series. There are two so far, and they are a bit Mad magazine-like, in that they feature celebrity caricatures directly facing the reader. But hey, they look good.

‘Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends’ Could’ve Had The Greatest Action Figure Line Of All Time

Fosters Bloo Superdude main

Despite the popularity of Craig McCracken's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends on Cartoon Network, the show has only been adapted a few times in comic form as part of DC's Cartoon Network 2-in-1 in 2010 and as part of IDW's upcoming massive CN Super Secret Crisis War crossover. Similarly, although the show did get some toys, it never received a proper action figure line. But it almost did. And in the most intensely awesome way imaginable. The show's comedic character Bloo was transformed into a titan of toyeticism in the name of pure fun.

Watch The Original And Surprisingly Violent ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ Pilot [Video]

MMPR01

If you were a kid in 1993, there's a pretty good chance that you're familiar with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and that, if you were called upon to do so, you could probably list off a few of the show's defining characteristics. Once you got past the dinosaur robots, the monsters, and the color-coordinated karate fights, you'd probably talk about Ernie's juice bar, Bulk and Skull, Zordon, and maybe even the eternal annoyance that is Alpha 5. But what you might not realize is that there's a lot of that stuff that wasn't originally part of the show -- at least as it appeared in the original 15-minute pilot.

Obviously, the dinosaur robots and monsters are all in there, but it's just different enough that it seems super weird in comparison. Check it out and see if you can spot all the differences!

DC Collectibles Reveals New ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ Figures: Joker, Robin and Poison Ivy

Batman: The Animated Series Action Figures

As much as I loved the Batman: The Animated Series figures that I had when I was a kid (shout out to Combat Belt Batman), the one thing that always bugged me about them was the lack of articulation. Even if you're really, really into seeing Batman just stiff-legged Yakuza kick the Joker, which I am, five joints do not make for a lot of fun times.

Now, though, my childhood dreams have once again come true with the new DC Collectibles line of B:TAS figures, which are rocking some awesome, DC Universe Classics-esque articulation and beautiful designs by Bruce Timm. Wave 1's Batman and Catwoman have already been announced, but today, we've got a look at the second wave, featuring Robin, The Joker and Poison Ivy, plus painted versions of wave 1's Mr. Freeze and Two-Face.

New Full-Length ‘The Flash’ Trailer Completely Nails It [Video]

Untitled-1

 

Well, that was probably a lot better than anyone could have reasonably expected.

Some quibbles aside, the first long look we've had at the new Flash television show comes with just about everything longtime comics readers would want to see in a modern Flash adaptation: a faithfully depicted origin of his speed powers, his partnership with STAR Labs, his battle with the Weather Wizard, and, most astonishingly, the Flash vs. a tornado.

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-121111112

Congratulations, you guys. We made it. We've been through a lot together, but the day has arrived; we're finally here. It's the very last episode of Agents of SHIELD.

Season one. Yes, the first live action TV show from one of the biggest multimedia franchises of our time managed to get a second season. This is not surprising. The show could have been awful and it would still would have been renewed. And, what do you know, it was. But can the show finish strong enough to get audiences excited for season two? Spoilers follow.
