BBC America has announced that Kevin Smith has signed on to write, direct, and executive produce a TV series based on the Image Comics title “Sam and Twitch”.

The characters were first introduced in the Spawn comics, a pair of homicide detectives were so popular they got their own title in 1999 which explores how they solve occult-related crimes in a dark and violent version of New York City.

BBC America president Sarah Barnett says Smith is “beyond himself excited” about the series which will have both a crime-of-the-week format, and season-long storylines.

It’s not clear if “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane is involved in the series or if there’s any involvement of other characters from the “Spawn” universe. No production timetable has yet been scheduled either.

Both characters were previously brought to the screen on HBO’s “Spawn” animated series which is currently available on HBO Now.Source: Deadline

Hello, it’s me again. and today we’re going to talk about everything I read during January. (Well the graphic novels at least.) Actually I’m going to talk about them and you can choose to read or not, entirely up to you.

Oh since I’m reviewing multiple titles at the moment doesn’t mean you’re entitled to multiple spoiler alerts. This is your one and only spoiler alert. Consider yourself warned that the following reviews may or may not contain spoilers. Continue reading

I haven’t ventured into this kind of thing before, but after my latest acquisition, I decided that I needed to attempt it to share my thoughts and impressions of it with you. I recently got my statue of Deathstroke from Batman: Arkham Origins produced by Sideshow Collectibles and Prime 1 Studio.

I pre-ordered the piece last year when it was first advertised, despite all of my attempts to talk myself out of it (thanks Richard), and made monthly payments until it was ready for shipping. In all honesty, after the first couple of months of payments, I completely forgot about it until I got the email from Sideshow saying that the last payment was coming up to coincide with the shipping date. It is interesting that a statue running $929.99 before taxes and shipping and everything can become something you forget that you have paid for until it arrives, but that was the reality of having pre-ordered and signed up for a lengthy monthly payment plan.

As far as the statue itself, I am overjoyed with it. The level of detail on found throughout each of the pieces is simply stunning. There are the overarching things like getting the look of the costume, mask, and face right, but I would expect nothing less from a collectible statue. The surprise, for me, comes from all of the small details. Each of the pouches on the tactical belt are detailed to such a degree that you would expect the clips to be able to open and to look inside of them. The finer details of all of the weapons and accoutrements all over his body make each piece look like nothing less than a scaled down version of the real thing. And when I say scaled down, I don’t mean by all that much. The overall size of the statue is approximately 30”.

As far as my overall impressions go, I couldn’t be more pleased with this purchase. I have yet to find a permanent home for it, given the size and my lack of planning, but I crack a smile every time I walk by it. And the fun really doesn’t end for quite some time. The statue came with several interchangeable pieces so that the look can be changed at a whim. His right arm can be empty handed, holding his ballistic staff, or toting his assault rifle. His left hand can be wielding his ninjato, empty handed, or, in the case of my version, clutching a battered and damaged Caped Crusader cowl. It even came with a couple of interchangeable heads so that I can decide if I want to gaze upon the weathered and battle hardened face of Slade Wilson or simply stare into the unfeeling mask of Deathstroke, the Terminator. Striking a fearless pose atop a buttress adorned by the Grim Reaper, this piece will please me each time I see it for years to come.

In this episode, join AJ and Anthony as they cover all of the latest news.

Then join them as they review Justice League Dark!!!!  As well as Resident Evil: The Final Chapter!!

All of this and more on Episode #169!!!

*This post is full of Star Wars spoilers for everything from Episode 1 thru The Force Awakens.

The time comes in every child’s life when they are officially initiated into the world of Star Wars. For some it’s as early as birth but for others, like in our family.. you must be ready to receive and ask for it of your own free will. Until then, the truth is shrouded in secrecy.

If you know anything about me, you know I am a fierce protector of storyline when it comes to any film or book series. Maintaining that secrecy for those who have not seen/read them yet is important to me, especially when it comes to my children and Star Wars. It becomes a secret much like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy – something you keep safe until the time is right.

Some of you may remember the decision we made to hold off on allowing our children to see any of the Star Wars stories/cartoons or short films that gave away those secrets out of context. You may also remember last January when we unknowingly walked into a 20 minute show that gave away every secret of the entire series and I was LIIIIVVVVIIID because there was zero signage to warn people. You can read about that here if you want.

Well, we’ve moved forward and now is the time.

Fans freaked out last year when Cartoon Network announced Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult-fave series would be coming back with an all-new fifth season. We haven’t known just when those episodes would start rolling out but the network just told everyone in its own inimitable style.

New Samurai Jack episodes will begin airing on March 11.

There’ve been promises of a moody, upscaled arc for the show’s return, which makes the wait for its signature blend of stylized action, samurai stoicness and scifi weirdness even harder.
