All Points Bulletin: Sailor Moon vs. Phantas-Moon

If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.

Narutaki’s picks:

  • Hone Your Monkeybrain!
    A new independent comics publisher debuted their new line this week and everyone is already Monkeyficizing their comics collection. This line has variety and a great price point. I picked up 3 of the 5 and enjoyed each, but if I was going to recommend one I’d say go for French thief Bandette. If you’ve been curious to read some American comic this is a great place to start.
  • The Second Best Thing to Owning the Real APO
    You know you want to own the adorable (and heroic!) dog from Space Brothers, well now you have the chance. This plush APO is way cute and he is actual size!
  • Sailor Moon Rides Again!
    Yeah, this will also be in the Line-Up for July, but I’m putting it here, too, as there is probably no other news this year I’ll be more excited about! And this is forewarning that I won’t stop talking about this any time soon.
  • France Invades California
    If you haven’t heard of Japan Expo which is held in Paris, you may be better off because you will be filled with jealousy looking at their enormous guest lists. Now they are bringing their brand of convention to the U.S. in the late summer of 2013. With it happening in California I doubt I’ll be able to attend, but I’ll keep my options open.
  • Saving Sally
    Not sure I’ll ever get to see this Filipino production, but I just had to share the trailer. It has a lot of quirk with the actors, animation, motion graphics, paintings, etc. Perhaps it will show up at next year’s NYAFF.
  • NOW it is Marvel’s Turn to Change Things Up
    Remember when DC Comics did the New 52 last year? Marvel has their own designs on a relaunch this fall as well. You can find various articles all around about what we know so far, but of course it includes returning titles to #1. This article is about some of the good ideas and some of the less, like the mistake of #1’s. I agree with Brett, I’d really prefer superhero comics to number things for whatever story arc it is (ex. New Avengers: Search for the Sorcerer Supreme #3 ). Brett also suggests including the actual number along with that, though at this point all numbering everywhere is confusing as hell.  Randomly starting at #1 is annoying, especially when trying to buy trades in order. In any case, I’ll be curious about the titles but I’m not sure I’ll check out as many as I did with the New 52.

The reason is obvious.
