The comic book Invincible is getting a cartoon next year on Amazon Prime. And it looks pretty good!
I only recently just started reading Invincible the comic. I bought all three giant compendiums and have completed the first one. It’s a fun comic. So far, it’s not groundbreaking or truly amazing. It’s just a solid, enjoyable, well-crafted superhero adventure. Should make for a great cartoon!
Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have a new, supernatural TV show coming to Amazon Prime at the end of October. It’s called Truth Seekers and it looks like it could be pretty cool.
I think Frost and Pegg wrote this series, or at least created it. But I also think, based on the trailer, that it’s only really going to feature Simon Pegg. This is definitely not a show starring the two of them as a team. All the marketing seems to think it’s a Pegg/Frost adventure…but you ain’t fooling me!
Still, looks good and I’m always up for good new shows. Truth Seekers comes to Amazon Prime on Oct. 30.
I’m currently in the middle of watching the second season of The Umbrella Academy and it’s great! Very much enjoying this show. So how about the other really cool, stylish, live action streaming show based on a comic book? The Boys returns to Amazon Prime on Sept. 4!
Looks great! Obviously, The Boys has gone way off the rails from the comic, and I am perfectly fine with that. The Boys TV show is telling it’s own story. I’m not so beholden to the source material that I’m going to be bitter. The show is a fun use of the characters and concept.
Yesterday, as if gifting me direct content for this blog on a lazy Thursday, both The Umbrella Academy and The Boys came out with trailers for their upcoming second seasons. I enjoy both shows! And both are based on comic books! So it all fits! I’m a lucky guy.
The Umbrella Academy comes back first on July 31 on Netflix.
The Boys returns to Amazon Prime on Sept. 4.
What’s not to love? They both had great first seasons and can only get better from here!
I was going to share a new Watchmen trailer today, but I couldn’t work up any excitement for that show. I’m probably gonna watch it, but these trailers aren’t doing anything for me. So how about I remind you all that the new TV show Undone arrived on Amazon Prime last Friday?
Have you heard of Undone? I barely have, but I’m hearing great things! And it’s from the producers of BoJack Horseman, so that’s already an amazing pedigree.
It looks insane, but hopefully good insane. I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. I hope it’s as good as I hope it is.
Meanwhile, where’s the new season of BoJack Horseman?!
