The Boys TV Show Looks Gnarly

We’re not only living in the golden age of superhero movies, we’re also living in the golden age of comic book TV shows. I really enjoyed The Boys, and I’m a big fan of writer Garth Ennis. So I’m very excited for the upcoming Amazon TV show adaptation!

Looks like they’re really going for it! I kind of like the idea that Seth Rogan is using all of his wealth and power to make fun TV shows about his favorite comics!

The Boys arrives on July 26.

My 6 New Favorite Game of Thrones Characters…Probably

The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us and it promises to be devastating! I have high hopes for the finale and look forward to each and every episode! About six years ago, just as the show was getting started, I put together a List of Six of my favorite characters at the time. It’s an interesting list to look back upon. And heck, all but one of the characters is still alive! Fancy that!

In honor of the final season, and because the list has changed a lot, I’ve whipped up a list of my current favorite characters heading into Season 8! I doubt this list will change by the end, barring someone doing something really awesome! Hopefully more than a few of these characters will survive the whole show.

There are still dragons!

It is definitely interesting to see how my favorite characters have changed over the course of the show. Most of my earlier favorites are still alive, like I said, and they remain cool characters. But mainly it seems new characters popped up and I found them just plain cooler and more interesting to watch.

So join me after the jump for my favorite Game of Thrones characters going into the final season! And feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!

Let’s Keep This Star Wars Train Rolling with Darth Vader by Tell It Animated!

I hadn’t planned on posting so much Star Wars content, but when it’s a random Tuesday and Tell It Animated is awesome, how about a Darth Vader video?

This guy does great work! These are fun videos. I wish I had the talent to come up with a fun YouTube series. I’d be on easy street!

Some More Trailers for Neat Star Wars Stuff!

Star Wars Celebration went on all weekend, and after the big real of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker and it’s trailer, we’ve now got trailers for a new video game and the resurrected season of the Clone Wars cartoon. So neat Star Wars stuff is still coming to our universe!

First up, let’s check out that sweet Clone Wars trailer!

Looks pretty neat! I was late in getting on board both Clone Wars and Rebels, but both turned out great! So another batch of Clone Wars episode should be sweet!

Then there’s the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s supposed to be a single-player game about a young padawan rising to become a Jedi in the post-Revenge of the Sith time period. I’m more hesitant about this.

I’ll see what the reviews say before I buy this game. This is a character/setting combination we’ve seen plenty of times before. Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels was exactly this. And I’m rather bummed that the main character is your standard bland white guy with brown hair. They couldn’t have come up with an alien padawan? Those existed, you know!

Sadly, Star Wars didn’t release the trailer for The Mandalorian TV show, despite playing it for the audience at Celebration. Wonder why they held that one back. Maybe they want to give it its own big release in a couple months.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/13/19

Comic release schedules have morphed into a weird track for me. How is it that all of my current favorite comics come out in the exact same week, forced to battle it out for Comic Book of the Week? Nearly any of the comics I read this week could have trounced some of the garbage I read other weeks.

As much as I’ve been loving Wonder Twins — and this week saw another stellar issue — an old champion has revealed it still has legs and comedy chops! Unbeatable Squirrel Girl wins Comic Book of the Week for a really fun and funny tie-in to War of the Realms!

Russell Dauterman, eat your heart out!

Meanwhile, the new issue of Batman featured interior art by Amanda Conner, one of my favorite comic book artist of all time. I’m quite pleased with the issue, which sees the bachelor party of Catwoman, wherein she and Lois Lane party at the Fortress of Solitude. Unfortunately, I did not review the issue because Batman remains trapped in a weird dream prison thing, so I’m finding each individual issue difficult to grade. Fun stuff, though.

Comic Book Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #19, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #43, Unstoppable Wasp #6, Wonder Twins #3 and X-23 #11.
