I have not bought a new comic book since Jimmy Jams Comics closed its doors in late September, so I honestly have no idea if this is a spoiler about an upcoming book or a revelation from this week’s books. Has Batman been killed yet? If so, then this isn’t a spoiler. If that happens …

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I was up at 5:45 to stuff this 20 lb. bird. We have to have Thanksgiving for lunch, since Melinda will be working the evening shift today. So, since I’m the earliest riser around here, I thought I’d wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. Just remember: it’s not Turkey Day. It’s the …
The trailers for Disney’s film Bolt look funny, especially that gung-ho hamster character. However, I can’t imagine the movie will be very good for one simple reason. The main character is a dog who thinks he has superpowers, but he actually just plays a super-powered dog on TV and the show’s creators hide the truth …
Aside from Nite Owl being too lean and grim (obviously to fool people into thinking it’s Batman, which seems to be working), this is a good trailer.
Captain Marvel vs Raiden, Scorpion, Baraka, and Shao Kahn. Looks like Cap is finally getting the attention he deserves.
I think he’s taking it hard. Hat tip: Dirty Harry, who points out that Kirk wasn’t able to drive a car in “A Piece of the Action”.
Joe Johnston is a name that should be better known in the movie biz. His first film, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” is a classic. “The Rocketeer” was a wonderful film, not only in capturing the feel of the comic book but as a period piece. (I re-watched it this year and was shocked to …
The official online trailer is now up at Apple trailers exclusively. Click the link below and enjoy. (Ye Ed: Fixed it for ya!)
Must be too buggy or something. Now Luann is back to the old stuck-on-last-Sunday design. *waiting impatiently*
Luann’s comic was inactive this week because the site was being revamped: Luann’s Room 2.0. The site has a terrific archive going back to 1995. (Funny how I was just bemoaning the lack of a complete archive!) Luann now joins the latest fad: colored strips every day of the week. I like it so far. …
I don’t know why the thumbnails aren’t working for the site. I just wanted to let you know I’m aware of the problem and I’ll try to get it fixed.
I happened to stroll by Luannsroom.com (no, I don’t know why the last two days’ worth of comics aren’t up) and realized that I hadn’t added the latest book of Luann comics to my wishlist for Christmas. One thing irks me about the Luann books: they’ve been jumping around and have missed many storylines. In …
Call of Duty: World at War is coming out in time for the holidays, and we’ll be reviewing it here on Monitor Duty. Ethan Colchamiro will be reviewing it for the Playstation 3. Watch this space! Meanwhile, here’s a beautiful desktop wallpaper from the game:
David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who next year. He will be doing four “special episodes” in 2009, which I believe is in addition to the Christmas special for 2008. Note that these are “special episodes” as opposed to “very special episodes.” The Doctor won’t be coping with alcoholism or a friend dying of cancer. It’s …
How did I not know this film was on its way? I just stumbled across this on the Apple trailers and it looks hilarious. “My Name Is Bruce” Basic plot: when an undead Chinese monster goes on a rampage, some Bruce Campbell fans seek him out to defend them thinking he’ll be the bad-ass he …
I saw this on CNN during the election coverage… It’s still a long way from Star Wars or Red Dwarf, but still… THEY HAVE F***ING HOLOGRAMS!!!
