Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell

hulk-where-monsters-dwell

   Watching this for the first time. It’s not bad. It is aimed at a younger audience. I am already digging the fact that the Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. are involved with the show. While I write this, I am also watching the show. At this point I won’t hold my breath for Dum Dum Dugan to make an appearance.

   The Howling Commandos was one of the best things that Marvel has put out in years. Having said that, it was also a short lived title. So seeing some of them show up in the animated universe is a treat.

   This direct to video presentation is entertaining enough, but don’t expect anything too deep. It’s fun for what it is. If you like Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Howling Commandos, and don’t mind simplistic plots, then this show is for you. It really is worth a watch.

Turtle Power (2014)

 pizza-gyoza  This is a wonderful documentary on the full history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s a great, and informative, watch. You can’t beat the rental price of $2.99 either. I was onboard the TMNT train back in 84, when I discovered the 2nd printing of issue number one at my favorite comic book shop, Comics & Comix, in Citrus Heights, California.

New Animated Hulk movie coming this Fall (2016): Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell 

csrbu8fwaaahh78

   I just heard about this animated movie this morning. It’s supposed to be released this month and there is absolutely NOTHING on it. Just a small snipit on Marvel.com about it.

   For fans of the meanest and greenest super hero in the Marvel universe, 
Hulk gets his very own animated feature, "Marvel's Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell"! 
Hulk teams up with Dr. Strange and the Howling Commandos to explore some of the 
uncharted corners of the Marvel universe.

Marvel_animationHulk: Where Monsters Dwell was announced by Marvel Animation for a Fall release last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. No sneak peeks or plot revelations but who cares, it is more Hulk to fill the gap until Thor Ragnarok next year. With the Hulk being “killed” in the recent Civil War story I will take any real Hulk (not name Cho) that I can get. I am hopeful that they story will be well done – consider me anxious. The story will include Doc Strange which undoubtedly will be used to build up the hype for the Doctor Strange movie in November.

Best Read of the Day: Doctor Strange Comics A Reader’s Guide to the Mystic Arts

drstrange

   The Geeks over at Den of Geek put together this reader’s guide last year. Now is the time, with the movie coming out, to get caught up on Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme. As a character concept, I’ve always loved Doctor Strange. He has a great design, a smashing origin and, with Ditko’s art, some wild adventures. The books after the 1970’s have fallen flat for me from time to time while the animated feature from 2007 was a great adaption that I enjoyed. With the new movie on the horizon I am anticipating a great visual mind bender.

   While you wait for Benedict Cumberbatch to hit screens in the Doctor Strange movie, we’ve got all the Marvel Universe comics to check out.

Super President? I thought I had Seen It All…

   If you are looking for a political rant, move along, nothing like that here. I gave up politics, along with religion & superstition, a long time ago. No THIS is Far, far worse my friends.

suppres1   YouTube is a hell of a site. You can find all sorts of interesting and frightening things on there. Today I found a show called “Super President”.  Wait. What? “Super PRESIDENT”? WTF?

This had to be a fake. A cleverly rendered retro project by some brilliant animation artist. Alas it is not. This show was an actual thing. I was shocked that I had never heard of it before. Not that I am a Know-It-All, but I am well versed in completely USELESS knowledge and being familiar with this show would rank right up there with that level of pointlessness.

600full-super-president-screenshot   Produced by the DePatie-Freleng animation company, “Super President” aired Saturday mornings on NBC from September, 1967 to December, 1968. It was voiced by Paul Frees as  and the American President, James Norcross, who gained superpowers in a Cosmic Storm. Along with super strength he gained the ability to change his molecular structure into any substance he wishes (i.e. Acid, Metal, etc…).

   Ummm… yeah. Well, it was very fun to make fun of, so there is that 😉

#TRANSFORMERS Returns in 2015. Sounds like Prime cont.

#TRANSFORMERS Returns in 2015. Sounds like Prime cont.

   I dig shows that have continuity. If this show does indeed stem from the Transformers Prime program then it will be fun to see what happened after that show ended. Even if it would be in flashbacks. Scraping old, solid, shows just for the sake of rebooting or what-ever is the norm now and it is getting old. Properly ending a show and bringing a change that has roots in the past is an awesome way to refresh an old story and still keep you firmly grounded in a new situation of a new one. Are you listening DC… New 52?
