I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!
First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.
Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.
Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.
Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!
Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.
Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.
That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.
Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.
Comic-Con season was pretty good for me this year. I did a couple of local conventions, nothing too huge. Some new people bought — and hopefully enjoyed — Gamer Girl & Vixen. If you’ve never read my comic before, the graphic novel is still available to order! And I think I’m going to try really hard to have some new comics to show off for next convention season.
Speaking of comics, it’s a pretty big week. We’ve got the first issues of Amazing Spider-Man and Superman, kicking off those new creative teams. We’ve also got the debut of the new X-23 series, which wins Comic Book of the Week for the best, cleanest and most entertaining series debut this week.
Meanwhile, I would like to point out that there are not one, but TWO courtroom scenes in this week’s comics that don’t understand how the criminal justice system works. Due to my day job, this is one of those things that really grinds my gears. There should be no excuse for not knowing that you don’t immediately launch into a jury trial the same day you’re arrested. That stuff takes time! A long time!
I could go on, but I’ll spare you for now. You can go back and read a full article I wrote on all the nitpicks I had. I must sadly decline from reviewing Unbeatable Squirrel Girl this week. It’s still a fun comic, but it’s complete disregard for how a courtroom actually works just pressed all of my buttons.

The geniuses at Ascender are a cruel reminder that I am a talentless hack. This is the sort of video that makes me happy to be alive!
This was a really fortunate week for comics! A ton of comics came out that I like to read, and since I had Wednesday off from work, I had plenty of time to sit and read a whole bunch! This is a jam-packed review column!
We’ve got some pretty stellar issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Justice League and especially Runaways, with some middlingly OK issues of Batman, Avengers and Man of Steel. The standout for the week — and Comic Book of the Week — is the first issue of Dan Slott’s Tony Stark – Iron Man. It was a fun introduction to Slott’s new series.
Meanwhile, I finished all of Gwenpool, and it was really nice, with an especially powerful ending. Totally worth buying all those books. Now I can’t wait to see her in West Coast Avengers, and I’m even considering buying her action figure, just to have a memento. She’s a really fun character.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #801, Avengers #3, Batman #49, Justice League #2, Man of Steel #4, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28, Runaways #10 and Tony Stark – Iron Man #1.
At this point in the superhero movie landscape, I think it’s safe to be completely skeptical of anything SONY might be doing on their own for Spider-Man. But the teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse looked amazing, and now the full-length trailer looks just as spectacular!
The hype is real. Here’s hoping SONY can pull it off! They even make the alternate reality Miles Morales stuff make some sense!
The animation also looks superb! And the comedy quite funny. This movie looks damn good!
The film debuts in December.
