All Points Bulletin: Neoclassical RomanticismFebruary 12, 2012
If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- It Might JUST Cross the Finish Line in Time
After it began all the way back in December of 1994 it seems that the Evangelion manga is finally on its last volume. That means they MIGHT just finish before the reboot movies are over. But it is Yoshiyuki Sadamoto so we shall see what happens.
- I come to bury Bandai, not to praise it.
- The Horn of Manga Gondor
The ANNCast had on Carl Horn who is one of the most knowledgeable people working in manga in the US. He has plenty of stories about the growth of the industry as well as some juicy behind the scenes info. Plus he is one of the few old timers that still has a genuinely upbeat attitude. Just a delight to listen to.
- Rage Against the Intelligent Flying Machine
We got some new designs of mecha and characters from Eureka Seven: AO. The most amusing part to me is all the people complaining that female pilots means this will be a harem show.
- Type-Moon News Roundup
- Love Scars
Special for upcoming Valentines Day, Comics Alliance has a new series “Love Hurts” which features some of the most hilarious (and creepy) romance comics of the past. All brought to you by the very funny Chris Sims. It is a shame this column will not continue after the holiday!
- GO ETU!!!
At least Adidas understands my love for Giant Killing! They are releasing a slue of apparel from uniforms to scarves (do want!). It is all limited edition so I’m not sure I’ll ever get my hands on it though.
- Monsuno Killed the Dinosaurs
According to the press release for this new Nickelodeon animated series. Evil alien DNA, end of the world, monsters, sounds like a series worth giving a shot later this month.
- NOT Disney’s Snow Queen Film
This is a trailer for a new Russian re-telling of their classic story, coming out at the end of 2012. It is the first major CG production for them and looks pretty impressive. Since the trailer is in English, hopefully that means it will see a wider release and not just be available to film festivals throughout next year.
- Let’s Pretend There is an Incredibles 2
With this concept art it isn’t too hard to let your imagination run wild. We all want a sequel to Pixar’s most sequelable (?) movie, but still any plans for it elude our watchful eyes.
- Is Marvel’s Public Image Spiraling Out of Control?
There has been a lot of bad press for the company lately and with mounting lawsuits, complaints, and outcry things don’t seem to be getting better. The big two have always had shady dealings marring their past but it isn’t in the past at all. Just this week Marvel demanded $17,000 from the creator of Ghost Rider for profiting from his creation. Then in an interview Marvel’s publisher tried to tell us that they do not do crossovers, nope never, which is just plain strange and not true. It doesn’t seem like a big deal perhaps, but lying to your fanbase makes them question why you did so. The more we learn about the company, the less people are willing to ignore these things and at some point they may be pushed too far.
A most amusing cross over:
