Remembering the Show Banned by Parents Nationwise



My other CBR post of the week, an examination of the HBO animated series, TODD McFARLANE'S SPAWN.    I tried to cover the development and all three seasons in one post, while also discussing the possibility of the long-teased, still-missing, new SPAWN series.

The “Batman: The Animated Series” Episode That Didn't End Things, After All



Another installment of Adventure(s) Time is now up at CBR.  If you have any other animated episodes you'd like to see paired with ADVENTURES tie-ins, you can leave a comment or contact me on Twitter.

Also, if you're wondering if I'm only going to be posting links from now on, I'll possibly have micro-reviews of a certain series up in the coming weeks...

Adventure(s) Time: When "Knightfall" Invaded The Animated Series


My latest look back on Batman: The Animated Series and its tie-in comic is now up at CBR.

I cover an episode from what could be the strongest run of episodes during the series' run.  There are so many cool shadowy shots in this episode, I wanted to screencap all of 'em.

Adventure(s) Time - Batman:The Animated Series and Its Furry Foes




Please understand that I've summoned all of my willpower to avoid making any reference to a certain 1962 novelty song that was, perhaps, performed by Bobby "Boris" Pickett.  My latest installment of Adventure(s) Time is now up at CBR.  If you'd like to see Batman Adventures, or any Adventures comic really, covered in the future, just leave a comment.

Tough!  Because you're getting fifteen...

(By the way, I forgot to mention what could be my favorite alternate casting from these movies.  Actor David Hemblen, who was the voice of Magneto in the '90s cartoon, was reportedly one of Bryan Singer's choices to play Magneto in the film, but he was unavailable due to his commitment to Earth: Final Conflict).

Adventure(s) Time - When BATMAN:TAS Began to Grow Up



My newest contribution to CBR looks at the debut of Two-Face on BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, and the sequel from the ADVENTURES tie-in comic, written by Paul Dini. If that Two-Face painting I mentioned has been published somewhere, and I've simply forgotten about it, please be kind enough to tell me.

Adventure(s) Time - The Batman Episode You Can't Escape


My latest piece for CBR...I probably should've mentioned that there is an amazing double-page spread of the Scarecrow's House of Horrors in that ADVENTURES comic:

TMNT Video Collection from the FHE Days





The packaging art on these old FHE videos is pretty nice.  I'm assuming that Mirage was also in charge of this artwork, since all of the other merchandising art came out of Mirage.  It's amusing to see just how much the PR people who cut these commercials loved Michelangelo.  Even when he isn't the Turtle speaking in the clip, they dub in Michelangelo's voice!

Adventure(s) Time - Supergirl's Non-Gooey Animated Debut


In case you missed it, my latest installment of Adventure(s) Time focuses on Supergirl's debut in the DC Animated Universe, some of the behind-the-scenes issues it presented, and how the Superman Adventures comic completed the character arc that was cut from the show.
