Friday, time to share some links. Some i do comment, some not. Some lead to german internet presences.

# Could Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Make DC Comics’ Biggest Ever Omnibus, In Time For Christmas?

# New ‘Devilman’ Anime To Stream On Netflix (Japan) In 2018

# S.H.Figuarts Qui-Gon JInn Revealed
Yes! Wait, what is the second faceplate meant to emote?

# Whoa: ‘The Matrix’ Reboot Taking Shape at Warner Bros. Without the Wachowskis
This could work. Perhaps not with the people currently attached, but there are so many angles you could look at this story, even now.

# Anime Godzilla Movie Coming to Netflix Later This Year!
With Gen Urobuchi on writing made me more interested in this version of the king of monsters. His Kamen Rider series, Gaim, gave the franchise a needed new perspective.

# Six Years Ago Today
A comparison of the fukushima incident and Shin Godzilla.

# Tiny crack in steel seen through an electron microscope

# Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Begins Production, Laughs in the Face of God

# That New Star Wars Title Will Be A Darth Vader Ongoing By Charles Soule And Giuseppe Camuncoli
I hope Mr. Soule is in the same form as when he wrote the Lando miniseries because i liked that but wasn’t as much of a fan of his recent Marvel work.

# ‘Steven Universe’ WIll Be Coming To Consoles As An RPG

# Tales Of Alethrion trailer
This series spins out of the short animated movie The Reward, which somehow reminded me of all the D&D Adventures my brother and me….imagined our characters live through.

# Senate Republicans introduce resolution ensuring ISPs don’t need your permission to sell your private data and SSN
I try to keep politics out of here, but this is something that people using the internet should be aware of. We already give away to much by choice.

# A game where Character Creation is the Whole Game

# „Ich las genug!“ – Übersetzungen aus der Negativ-Zone
Marvel comics translating through the ages.

# ‘Logan’ ADR Clip: Watch Hugh Jackman Intensely Grunt His Way Through an Action Scene
I wonder if there are actors who get foley or dedicated adr artists to do such work for them.

# Jeff Lemire Quits Marvel
Hmm, if that is true Marvel should take a hard look at how to keep talent in house.

# Finn Jones leaves twitter discussing Iron Fist whitewashing controversy
It is an issue that needs addressing and a solution, but why don’t we address the people who are actually producing the things we take issue with? (because they are smart enough to stay off social media)

# DC Comics Planning Digital Subscription With Amazon Prime – And Everything Changes
At this point this might not come to be a reality, but having a subscription for Marvel Unlimited and a similar DC service might cover a huge chunk of the comic grind.

# Five ways to remove a stripped screw
Have to try out the rubber band method, because most of the time i don’t carry a Dremel with me.

# Adorable mascot drummer opts for death metal interpretation of childrens’ song

# Cole Sprouse weighs Jughead sexuality contoversy
Has he cut himself another asshole afterwards, because Twitter sure tore Mark Waid a second one. I get the rather emotional reactions, but we’re not the custodians of these characters and i give Waid the benefit of the doubt for not making a sexmachine out of Jughead all of a sudden. It’s Mark Waid! Frank Miller would have send him to make burgers out of people from the middle east and nobody would have given a thought about it.

# Image Announces 15 New Titles at ECCC
Every one of those titles has something that makes me want to read it, but how many if those titles will be around long enough to finish their run? Is Chip Zdarsky’s He-Man book still a thing?
And i don’t believe in Mage: The Hero Denied until i hold it in my hands. Been waiting 15 years for it.

# Trailer for the new Duck Tales cartoon, which looks promising.

Is Ike Perlmutter’s Marvel vs. Fox War Playing Out In Casting Announcements For X-Men And Inhumans TV?

# What does R2D2 actually say in Star Wars. Kind of.

# “Fewer Books, Better Books, Cheaper Books!” – Florida Retailer Talks Marvel Comics
I certainly don’t agree with everything stated in the text, but the sales number comparison sure is interesting to look at.

# Four Curious Names Are in ‘Kong: Skull Island’ End Credits!
Seriously, Spoilers!!

# Schall und Rauch und vieles mehr (german)
I’ve never realized that the blind librarian in The Name Of The Rose is referencing Jorge Luis Borges.

# Over 100+ Pictures of New Hasbro Transformers Figures
Soooo, Trypticon….what does the secondary market charge for Metroplex these days?

# “Gymnasts In Pyjamas” – Letters To The Editor About Batman And Superman
Hmm, i understand the point. But we are so deep in the rabbit hole that i feel like it doesn’t matter anymore.

# Toy Fair 2017: Super7
As much as i dig the animated Masters Of The Universe figures, the Robotech and Shogun ReAction figures peaked my interest. My Dad bought me vinyl figures of Roy Fokker’s Valkyrie and Mazinger that i lost on a field trip, and the reaction asthetic reminds me of them.
And FUCK, LORD OF LIGHT FIGURES!!!!

# Karen Berger, Dark Horse, Launch “Berger Books”
This probably means that we get even more good books. Comics are becoming more expensive every month it seems.

# Toys Spoil Everything!! Marvel Legends Two-Pack Reveals Kurt Russell in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’!
That Kurt Russel figure looks so neat.

# Eternal Empire, The New Comic By Sara Vaughn And Jonathan Luna, From Image In May
Alex & Ada was already one of my favourite comics of the last few years, so i’ll be on board for the first few issues.

# The foxes of London
Didn’t know that foxes are a “common” sight there.

# Creating Jehda and Scarif for Rogue One

# Bandai: S.H. Figuarts Star Wars C–3PO and R2-D2 Promotional Images and Info
Good thing i sat out the Mafex releases of those two. It’s not like there aren’t any S.H. Figuarts figures in the world that owners aren’t happy with, but so far i’ve been treated well by their Star Wars releases and therefore am stocked for my favourite droids.

# DC Comics To Do To Looney Tunes What They’ve Done To Hanna-Barbera, From ComicsPRO (UPDATE)
The Hanna Barbera comics that DC put out were amazing so far; i guess because my expectations weren’t very high, but frankly, this seems like it could cross the line.

# More Hasbro Marvel Roleplay, Finally I can Wear A Star Lord Helmet To Work
I would wear it to work! Two opportunities with fasching and halloween.

# Is Marvel Working on a Secret ‘Namor’ Project?
I guess Namor would work better in a Fantastic Four sequel but a Netflix show about him could work. But with the rather careful approach to world building that Marvel is taking the time doesn’t seem right.

# Ten Meter Tower
A nice 16 minute long documentary about people who are about to jump from the ten metre tower. As a person who’s scared of heights and nearly drowned in a public pool it feels like a horror film to me.

# Funko Brings Us More Batman 66 Including Action Figures (Now With More Batmobile!)
I’m in for the action figures.

new webcomic by Tom Scioli

Seems like i lived under a rock for the last three weeks. Tom Scioli, one of my favourite artists/writers in comics started a new webcomic.
It’s to early to make a statement avout the nature of the story, but Scioli’s artwork combines the style he adopted during his work on Satan’s Soldier through Transformers vs G.I. Joe with cleaner linework.

You can find his new work, Princess, here.

Seems i like the Star Wars Centerpiece figures

When i hear the announcement about the “reboot” of the Star Wars Unleashed figures, this time under the Centerpiece brand.
Looking at the promotional image of Luke Skywalker in his flightsuit from Empire, lightsaber in hand stepping over the foot of a fallen AT-AT, i was reminded of how much i liked the Unleashed series back in the days, but ultimately let them go.

Jedinews.co.uk has photos from Toy Fair 2017 that shows how two of the Centerpiece figures look like combined with the regular six inch figures from The Black Series; and that ignited a sense of symphathy for them in my inner collector.

But with the onslaught of products that will be released due to the 40th anniversary of A New Hope and all the unknown things that will swim in on the tidal wave that is Episode VIII collectors like memight have to prioritize even more than we’re used to.
