We’re back, baby! Another week’s recap of the latest in comics and toys with your host Dan Roth and Morgan on camera!
By Loran As I mentioned before, I wasn’t too keen on the designs for OOO. There were a few I liked, but for the most part, I was able to live without most of them. Part of what swayed my opinion (and ultimately led me to buy all of the forms) was winning a TaToBa [...]

By Loran There wasn’t much that appealed to me early on in OOO. When I saw the big montage of all the possible forms, I just saw rainbow vomit. From what I’ve heard, most of them don’t even end up getting used in the show. I like the idea of having that many possibilities, but [...]

By Loran I’ve always been a fan of the wilder aspects of G.I. Joe. Sure, sometimes they went a bit too far with the Mega Monsters from Mega Marines and the… Manimals but stuff like Star Brigade, the Venom Troops, and the hordes upon hordes of Battle Android Troopers? I eat that stuff up. Even [...]
A brand new show! Dan Roth guides us through what’s new at Forbidden Planet each and every week with Morgan Pielli on camera. This week: Predator, Doctor Who, and comics to review!
This week a new batch of comics were added to the pile of minis, including a particularly handsome-looking book called Odessa: Birth of a New Nation. This is an independently-published trade collecting issues 1-5 of the Odessa series. There is a lot to like about this book, with only one or two minor complaints. Production-wise, [...]
Sorry I wasn’t around last week…I took the week off in order to save up enough money to buy this week’s TOP TWO NOT TO BE MISSED HITS! In 1988, a few years after they published The Dark Knight Returns and a year after Watchmen, DC released another grim and gritty comic steeped in the [...]

By Loran Ever since Kamen Rider Agito, secondary Riders have become a staple of the franchise. I personally have no problem with it; heck, the original series had Riders 1 and 2 working alongside each other and Stronger had Tackle who… kind of counts. It adds a nice dimension to the show, and a second [...]
