For the next twelve hours, the entire first season of Dragon Ball Z carries a purchase price of “free.” So does the first season of Dragon Ball Super in both sub and dub versions. For some reason, the Microsoft Store is feeling super-generous today when it comes to popular anime.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has barely been out a few hours and already there is talk from Sony about sequels and spinoffs. One reason is because they’re incredibly poor at managing money (Emoji Movie was one of theirs) but another is because Spider-Verse IS on track to reach #1 at
A new trailer appeared online today hyping up an impending project from Disney and Lucasfilm: a new series of well-animated web shorts called “Star Wars Galaxy Of Adventures.” Unlike similar past projects, which used original stories, the shorts are animated versions of fan-favorite scenes from Star Wars movies.

A funny thing happened between the development of The Lego Movie and its sequel: Chris Pratt became a mega action movie star. Contrast this with his goofy days when his fame stemmed from his role on Parks and Recreation and….you’d have the plot of Lego Movie 2, where 2013 Pratt
It was late last month when Adi Shankar, producer of Netflix’s Castlevania anime series, announced he was picking up the rights to another video game with plans to cartoon-ify that as well. He dropped the hint with this Instagram post: Reaction from the press was immediate: Producer Adi Shankar is
My newest interview subject, Donald F. Glut, was introduced to me by Joe Williamson, who set up my 2015 interview with Mel Novak and my 2016 interview with Laurene Landon. Donald is a man after many of our own hearts on here. His earliest efforts included monster movies and comic
CBS has been a bit more daring with the content of its All Access streaming service — although it’s still stodgy ol’ CBS, so not TOO daring. At least they’re willing to monkey around with their valuable Star Trek brand to the point where they’d approve something like this. Its
My next interview subject, Sherri Stoner, has easily been my biggest influence as a writer. I did not have a good personal life in the 90s, and because of all the troubles I had in the decade, I don’t have fond memories of a lot of the decade’s pop culture.
For The Honor Of Greyskull! Though the TV networks have long since abandoned the entire concept of action cartoons, streaming services like Netflix are more than happy to pick up the slack (and that’s a good thing). From Voltron to The Dragon Prince, they’ve been churning out some excellent toonage
My newest interview subject, Tom Ruegger, is an animation legend. Whether at Warner Brothers, Hanna-Barbera or Disney, Tom Ruegger has worked on some of the most memorable cartoons of the last 4 decades. On August 28th, I had the chance to speak to Mr. Ruegger about some of his most
Cartoon Network has been slowly refining the work that comes out of its video game factory. At first they made cheesy Internet Flash games. Then they made mindless freemium phone games. Within the last year, they’ve finally upgraded to full-fledged multi-hour story-driven RPG experiences. Steven Universe and KO (of OK
In the 1980s He-Man ruled Eternia, She-Ra ruled Etheria, and both ruled children’s popular culture. Though Prince Adam has come back several times since his original show was cancelled, his twin sister hasn’t had her time in the sun again…until now. She-Ra returns this November in a new animated series,
