New Katsuhiro Otomo Manga – The Mood Is Already Of War Sequel

My apologies for the slower pace of blog updates recently – I’ve been working long hours on Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man : Far From Home film and have had little time to catch up on stuff. Anyway, the manga community on twitter Japan ( and subsequently across the globe ) has been abuzz with news of Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo’s long awaited new manga, a sequel to his 1982 work Kibun Wa Mou Senso – The Mood Is Already Of War ( read my review here ). Otomo is once again collaborating with nov...

Virtual YouTuber Saber?

During April Fools, a fan animator collaborated with a Saber fan Twitter user (@Saber_Says) to create a virtual youtuber version of Saber / セイバー from the Fate series. The animation is smoothly cute and along with the British English voice acting. But, it's unfortunately a April Fools prank and isn't officially licensed. Although, the fake channel did grow 14,000+ subscribers. Here's the introductory video.

Coo Coo Comics #44 - Frank Frazetta art

Coo Coo Comics v1 #44, 1949 - Three Frank Frazetta tales grace this issue, all impressively drawn for the funny animal genre. While his illustrations demonstrate high levels of craftsmanship, "Wishful Willy" rises above due to its larger size. Frazetta shows greater sensitivity in the drawing, while using an open panel to expand the background sky (see interior page below). Other artists in this [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Quick Note To tfA-t

I noticed that to this post and this one, tfA-t made some remarks.  I sent a note to his posted email address, which of course bounced.  So I have no way to communicate with him.  I don’t concur that he has a “right” to make comments except on his own blog (which probably doesn’t exist).  The First Amendment says no such thing about a right to post comments.  But the note I sent says this. I want to moderate your comments, I really do.  But I’m having sort of a problem.  I need to know more. ...

‘Stuber’ Trailer: Dave Bautista Isn’t the Easy Uber Passenger Kumail Nanjiani Was Hoping For

You’ve probably had a couple annoying Uber rides here and there. But it’s probably nothing like the experience Kumail Nanjiani has in the upcoming action comedy Stuber. Stuber follows an Uber driver (Kumail Nanjiani) who inadvertently ends up involved with deadly criminals, shootouts, and a fight for his life. That’s because a cop (Dave Bautista) is using him as transportation to track down a killer. Stuber Trailer Dave Bautista has already shown that he has impressive comedy chops with...

New rule petition seeks to ensure “amateur digital mode transparency”

About a week ago, the FCC announced that it is accepting comments on a Petition for Rule Making (RM-11831) that seeks to change the rules to require that all digital transmissions use techniques “whose technical characteristics have been documented publicly.” Filed by Ron Kolarik, K0IDT, the petition expresses concerns that some currently used digital modes are not readily and freely able to be decoded, and it asks the FCC to require all digital codes to use protocols that “can be monitored in ...

‘Hellboy’ R-Rated Sizzle Reel Reveals Blood, Gore, Profanity and Lobster Johnson

Hellboy arrives next weekend, and we’re not so sure the movie has the goods to get audiences into theater in the way that Lionsgate is hoping. Sure, the presence of David Harbour as Hellboy might be appealing to a certain sect of Stranger Things fans, but otherwise, this looks far less stylish and impressive than what director Guillermo del Toro already did with the Dark Horse comic book property. If you need anymore convincing that the audience awareness for Hellboy a boost, Lionsgate has debu...

Kit Harington Is Goofy and Beardless in a Decent ‘Saturday Night Live’

Everyone is so used to Kit Harington as Jon Snow that it was a little jarring to see him without a beard when he made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live. But even more startling was his normal voice, which is surprisingly different from the way he speaks as Jon Snow. It was almost distracting, but then Kit Harington made you forget about it by doing some goofy characters. Plus, some of his Game of Thrones co-stars stopped by during the monologue. The result was a decent episode with a sma...

Sinemia faces consumer pushback and a class action suit over a battery of complaints

When Sinemia first came across our radar, the company was happily riding the wave of anti-MoviePass publicity. With its chief competition in the midst of what looked to be a historic collapse, Sinemia happily grabbed headlines as a what looked to be more stable alternative for movie ticket subscriptions. Last July, at the height of MoviePass’ meltdown, we asked Sinemia co-founder and CEO Rifat Oguz how he planned to avoid a similar fate. “By not providing unlimited tickets, but providing t...

Hugo Awards 2019: Initial Thoughts

The 2019 Hugo Award Finalists were announced earlier this week, so it's time for the requisite joyful praise and bitter recriminations. Best Novel has a reasonably balanced mixture of elements. 4 of 6 are part of a series... but two of those are the first in a series (which can often operate in a standalone way, though far too many do not), one of them seems to be a standalone novel set in the same universe, and one is the third in a series (and decidedly not standalone). 4 of the 6 are also p...
