# 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

# James Cameron Confirms ‘Avatar 2’ Won’t Arrive in 2018, Make Your Fake Surprised Face Now

# 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.

# Inside a crew cabin in cargo ship swaying during rough seas
A former trainee of mine is currently working on a ship. Hope his journeys are more stable.
Turn off the audio if you don’t need an edgy riff to enhance the visuals.

# Maybe there’s more that brings us together than you think
Ultimately, the commercial should communicate that everyone is watching tv. But i like the idea of bringing people from all walks of life together in such a way.

# Doug Chiang Talks With American Cinematographer About ‘Rogue One’

# Re-Creating The Spacecrafts Of ‘Star Wars’
I had a guy in class who was building his own spaceships by kitbashing, so the thought of reverse engineering a kitbashed result gives me sweats.

# Dobutsu Sentai Zyuohger Returns V-Cinema Project Announced
That is good to read. Dug the series and learning about how its protagonists navigate through the new world that they built is a fun premise. The Kyoryuger thing that was set in the future was neat too.

# ‘Lucifer’ Renewed For Season 3
Yes! The Wife and i dig that show. Watch Tom Ellis in Miranda when you have the chance!

# Kamen Rider X Super Sentai Chou Superhero Taisen Full Trailer Online!

# 2 New Uchu Sentai KyuRanger Promo Videos Online!
Oh, it’s that time of the year again. I get so used to the current Super Sentai or Kamen Rider show that i forgot that they only run for a year. As much as i dig the current show, Zuohger, those promo clips are looking good.

# Dave Gibbons To Teach You “How Comics Work” In A New Book

# Playmobil Hits Us In The Feels With Their New Ghostbusters Line
Seems like Playmobil is making a big push. First the six-inch collaboration figures with Funko (fourth Doctor!!) and now these. And they look eat too. For me the Playmobil aesthetic lacks something that puts Lego in favor.

Friday at midnight MET i share with you a few things from around the net i found out about in the last week.

# Deception Of A Generation
This explains so much. He-Man is responsible for

# Aquaman Stunt Director Unsure If There’s Water Scenes
Made me giggle. It’s just a thing to keep a feed alive, but imagine the stunt crew only getting told the working title and preparing for Arthur’s Tranquil Lighthouse.

# This Practical Demogorgon Effect From Stranger Things Is Haunting

# Ben Affleck Says His Batman Movie Isn’t A Definite Thing
Uhmmm. ? If that is some kind of reverse marketing thing i guess it’s working. At least with me. Has Jared the Prankster taken over the production of that movie?

# ‘Super Mario Bros.’ Is Coming To Blu-Ray, Putting The Disaster In High-Definition

# RIP Tyrus Wong, the man responsible for Bambi’s art style
Having watched the movie recently with younger members of the family we all agreed almost instantly as the credits were over that the visuals make this film.

# 20th years Diablo Anniversary retrospective

# PASSENGERS Kritik – Le Füm blog
I hob mi hoibat aubischt beim lesn. (from viennese: I nearly pissed meself laughing.)

# „Captain Marvel“ – Die deutsche Chronologie

# Bandai: Star Wars Rogue One K–2SO Model Kit Video Review and Quick Pics
I dig the design of almost everybody’s new favourite droid and i dig the Star Wars model kits that Bandai puts out, but it seems i lack the skill to clean up and paint the pieces. Applying decals looks like one of those home videos from a clip show….so i watch the coverage the of those kits by The Fwoosh with wonder and jealousy.

# DJI Has Acquired Hasselblad

# Using Humidification and Electrostatic Force in Digitizing Old Newspapers

# Watercooler won’t dispense until it finishes updating Windows

# VOTD: See How ‘Rogue One’ Brought Peter Cushing Back As Grand Moff Tarkin
Why didn’t they just use the actor? Yes, we need to use things to see where improvement is needed, but that was creepy and felt insulting coupled with the characterization.

# Scott Kurtz about Team Comics
I love comics, but to be honest, what i’m participating each week is a ritual prolonging the cycle until next wednesday.
