What's New

23 May 16

*creepy rattling sound* It's time for the hunt. This week we cover the Predator franchise with reviews of Predator, Predator 2 and Predators. Also, we enter End of Eva territory in our reviews of Volume 11 and Volume 12 of the Eva manga. Looking ahead, we've got more TTWC3 and JJ next week, plus reviews for a much less satisfactory scifi franchise. Hint: There will be tentacles. Stay tuned.

Inspector Andress has called in a ringer, a notorious hero-killer our gang can't possibly escape. Yes, the name of this dark savior is Molly Pepper. No, not really, but this shot of the junior mascot does seem fit for a dramatic entrance. Readers already know the actual identity of the new villain and now it's time to see him make his first appearance in Chapter 16 of EM. Reviews coming up next. Remember, if it bleeds, we can kill it. Stay tuned.

Now that we're done with Rowland, we move on to his girl Friday, the best Dark Elf spy/assassin/exotic dancer you can ask for. We start her story in Simona's prologue of TTWC3. We've got more EM and Predator reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

This week we have a pair of films and their remakes: 1957's 3:10 to Yuma and its 2007 remake, and Cape Fear and its 1991 remake by Martin Scorsese. We also have the recently released Captain America: Civil War and Volume 9 and Volume 10 of the Evangelion manga. Look forward to more TTWC3 and EM coming up, plus reviews from one of the great scifi creature franchises. A clue? If it bleeds, we can kill it. Stay tuned.

You may find yourself rooting for the Palatinians today in Chapter 15 of JJ. It's what happens when the fascist thugs on your own side are worse than the enemy. I'm thinking about covering a trio of films and their remakes this week, so look for that. Stay tuned.

The new Lord Protector of Notos looks to the future in Rowland's epilogue of TTWC3. And that'll do it for Rowland. One section down, seven to go. Look for more JJ and review coming up. Stay tuned.

I've got three direct-to-video animated adventures of the World's Greatest Detective for you this week: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1, The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, and Under the Red Hood. Also, because I apparently hate myself, I also have a review of the infamously terrible Batman & Robin. We also have more Eva with Volume 7 and Volume 8 of the manga. Coming up, we'll wrap Rowland's section of TTWC3 and have more JJ. Haven't decided on a theme for reviews yet, but you can at least be sure of more of the Eva manga. Stay tuned.

Ningen or neko, the Japanese have an affection for hardwood floors. You might be wondering how this is relevant, but you'll just have to find out for yourself in Chapter 15 of EM. Things are about to get worse for Giger in company. While that thought has you on the edge of your seat, look for some Bat-reviews and more Eva. Stay tuned.

Let's hope nobody forgot the annual observation of International Ayame Jellybean Day. Everyone, tip your hats and raise your glasses to the best thing to come out of Japan since anime. Here's to many more years of her fuzzy antics.

This week we reunite with our good friends Nick and Nora Charles to round out the remainder of the Thin Man series: Another Thin Man, Shadow of the Thin Man, The Thin Man Goes Home, and Song of the Thin Man. Our coverage of the NGE manga continues with Volume 5 and Volume 6. Next week we'll have more TTWC3 and EM and reviews of some animated outings of the Caped Crusader. Stay tuned.

Look at her. So complacent. Complacency is vulnerability, as we see (sort of) in Chapter 14 of JJ. Rough time ahead for the JJ crew. Review are coming up. Stay tuned.

Things seem to be looking up in Notos, but it's time for a change in Rowland's Chapter 4 of TTWC3. Keep your eye on the horizon for more JJ and reviews. Stay tuned.
