Here it is, the third month of DC’s new 52 with even more new titles popping up. As of this post, every new first issue has been released, and there has been praise and criticism from readers both new and old. Some issues have brought up old controversy’s; while others have showed a true step in the right direction. Although they’ve sold like crazy, with several titles recieving not only a second, but third and fourth printing, it’s issues 2-3 that will REALLY say whether or not this reboot was a success. At least, on a marketing level. Also, starting with January solicits I’ll be posting not just DC, but marvel, image, dark horse, and a few select others! See you next month!
Netflix has been treading dangerous water lately, as far as consumers are concerned. After splitting Netflix in two by making the Instant Queue and the DVD’s-by-mail separate products, many customers were unhappy. On top of that, the recent announcement that all Starz content will be removed in February 2012 caused stock for Netflix to fall considerably. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s not death or a train, so hit the jump to read more about Netflix’s surprising deal.
Having already covered DC’s solicitations for December, it was brought to my attention that I had not covered the previous months. Whoops. My bad guys. So, I come to you now to inform you of all the goodies that will be coming out this October for you viewing pleasure! Included are a majority of the Vertigo titles that will be released as well. Some really great stuff, and even though I never though I would be saying this; I can’t wait for the second issues!
Enter the Void. If you haven’t seen this movie you’re crazy man, you’re crazy. Enter the Void is a rather new movie so you won’t see it on any lists of “classics” and probably not on Ebert’s “great movies” list. You’re more likely to hear about it from a drug dealer, a crazed artist, or Quentin Tarantino. Enter the Void is about drugs, politics, lust, the feeling of being alone in a foreign land, and the trip you take after death according to the Tibetan book of the dead.
Enter if you dare.
The opening panels really set the tone for the comic. The Street Fighter Tournament is around the corner and contestants are training their asses off. We start off with Fei Long and Chun Li sparring each other, followed by Guile training, also we come across T.Hawk, E.Honda, Zangief wrestling a bear, Ken practicing his flaming Shoryukens, and Ryu in the midst of a fight, pushing himself further and further. All of the fighters appear to an ulterior motive, some seek vengeance, while others are striving for honor.
Now lets fast-forward to the juicy stuff, the fights! But before that lets hit on some key points, Cammy became Killer Bee for a bit but Vega broke her free, she then realized that her team, Delta Red, are being held as hostages in the laboratory. Eliza, Ken’s wife, found out the sex of their baby but didn’t mention it to Ken. Now onto the prelims, first up we have Adon vs. (more…)
So here is part two of my interview with awesome Dai Sato from Animefest 2011. We start off talking about animation and then switch gears to movies. By the end, I wish the interview could go on forever and that me and Dai could just sit down with a 6-pack and watch horror movies all day. But alas, all good things must come to an end.
Here we go!
