"Spiral Zone": Earth's Most Powerful Sci-Fi Returns!

by Chris Woodon January 5, 2007
Thanks to Batman:The Animated Series‘ great success, today’s kids seem to prefer spandex to spacesuits, but in the mid to late 80s the airwaves were crowded with a number of prominent sci-fi series like The Transformers, The Centurions, and Silverhawks. Unfortunately the two very best shows of this period quickly slipped into obscurity due to […]

It’s really unfair, because you can’t help assuming that the show (or movie, or symphony) won’t get better (or won’t get worse) before […]

"Black Cat": Never Trust an Open Bottle of Milk

by Dukeon January 3, 2007
Black Cat is quite an odd Shonen Jump title. Unlike its recent compatriots Naruto and Bleach, Black Cat is very, very dark. Presumably, this is because Gonzo, which produced it, doesn’t do a lot of Shonen Jump titles. And since it’s a Gonzo title, that means FUNimation got it instead Viz Media. But is this […]

"DuckTales": Methinks Scrooge Is Secretly an MLB General Manager

by Dukeon January 2, 2007
Way back when I was a kid, there were a few cartoons I adored. G.I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Chip N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers were the main three, but DuckTales was up there too. Today, of the first three, only G.I. Joe still entertains me. But DuckTales proves to still have its moments. […]
