Gaming: Nintendo unveiled its next generation console, the Wii U, yesterday at E3. It looks pretty rad, but all you really need to know for now is that Batman: Arkham City is confirmed for the system when it drops in 2012.
Just when you thought "Fraggle Rock" was going to be the last childhood property of the '80s to get a comic book revamp comes the announcement that the original Smurf comics are going to be reprinted in America for the first time in years.
Most American readers are probably more familiar with the cartoon version of the Smurfs, a merchandising juggernaut that saw everything from plastic figurines to theme park rides (anyone who grew up near King's Island likely has fond memories of their late, lamented Smurf boat ride), but the comics were a whole different matter. The first story to be reprinted, "The Purple Smurf," is an allegory about racism, and occasionally, the comics showed the friendly blue forest-dwellers engaging in activities that were downright un-smurfy. Stuff like, you know...
..or public execution of dissidents. Seriously.But as strange as that might seem, there were standards, which is why I've taken it upon myself today to unearth Ten Smurfs Who Didn't Make The Cut!
