Well let’s see, it’s been about a year since some meaningful content- so here is a new video series I’m kicking off! SUPERHERO-POW! Where I talk about everything I love: superheroes and cartoons! Starting things off is the first solo female superhero movie, starring Audrey Hepburn! You read that right. Now watch the video to see how it’s true!

Hey party people, well it’s getting really close to relaunch time for Toonocity. Over a year ago I relaunched the site with Cindy Li and GoldStar and this time I’m relaunching with- well I can’t tell ya yet! Since I never know for sure when I’m going to be done and posted, I don’t really like talking specifics. Making promises that I don’t keep, or letting people peek behind the curtain before I’m done. After the launch I’m totally cool with talking about how it came together and why, but before that, I guess I’m just too nervous about it all.

Anywho, as I said before it’s an animated series done all by my lonesome, so don’t expect anything as awesome as COWBOY BEBOP or anything! But it should still be pretty darn entertaining and fun. Here is another bg shot of the show.

As I go through creating the cartoons and update the website, I’m also finally opening a merch store as well. So I’m creating some t-shirts of the new concept, GoldStar and Cindy Li too of course! There’s not much there yet, but if ya want a look go here:

Also remember that every week I write comic book reviews for In case your curious, I specifically wanted to work with them. Because of all the main nerd sites they have the ‘Talk Back’ section. This is very important to me as an internet user. Websites shouldn’t be just about content provides posting stuff and walking away. The masses should be able to response. So I really like that this is the only website where people can post to disagree with my reviews or agree with them. If I was better at building website I’d have a ‘Talk Back’ section on all my webpages. Sadly, all I can manage is my blog, but that is half the rest I created my blog. So everyone could have a voice about my content. So please if you hate my cartoon or love it, write on blog of the cartoon and tell the world- not just me.

So what do I read in comic book these days? Well since I’m a reviewer now I read much more than I used too. But I still pick things I think I’ll enjoy. Here is my pull list:
DAREDEVIL – 3 out 4
NOVA – 2 out 4
AGE OF ULTRON – 1 out 4
THE SHADOW – 3 out 4
THE GREEN HORNET – too early to say
MASKS – 1 out 4
MARS ATTACKS – 3 out 4
STAR WARS – 2 out 4
THE HIGH WAYS – 3 out 4
AQUAMAN – 3 out 4

And I just recently dropped SWORD OF SORCERY and AVENGERS and AVENGERS ASSEMBLE. I always make time for indie book or anything else that strikes my fancy too.

Ok, that’s enough for now! Keep an eye on this spot because XXXXXXXXXXX is coming soon!

Happy Holidays, party people! I hope everyone is having a good time. As for me, I’m behind schedule on everything, as I attempt to do everything! So, just my usual holiday season. I’ve got plans for a new Christmas animation, but I haven’t been able to do much with it for two years now! Been too busy finalizing Cindy Li. The second comic will be released any day now. As well as a new Gold Star.

As the New Year rolls in, I am starting production on my next project- since, as I’ve said, Cindy Li is all in the can. Too early to really talk about, but my one hope is it doesn’t take me as long to complete as Cindy Li did- life throws too many curve balls, ya know.

Now I thought I’d bore you with one of the gifts I got this season- An Atari FlashBack- the new one with original ‘shaped’ joysticks (a bit smaller than the original joysticks). Yes, as a child one of my greatest Christmas gifts was an Atari 2600- Actually it was a Sear Tele-Game, same dif. Many, many hours of my youth were spent playing that. I even enjoyed the Pac-Man for it (even though it looked like hell). I actually still have the machine in a box somewhere. But hooking it up to modern TV’s is a trick- and it’s not in the best condition. So my wife got me this baby- though she can’t understand how I can still scream as the dragons from Adventure are chasing me. Only problem with it, as any old schooler like me might know, is some of the best games weren’t owned by Atari- talking Pitfall, Demon Attack, Cosmic Ark, River Raid, and I loved Tron’s Deadly Disc, Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back, Krull and MegaForce. If only companies would just let those go for cheap (serious is there much money to get out of them!?) Or if the manufacturer allowed upgrades to it. Pay to download games and install them on the FlashBack. Life would be grand! Still, many cool games on this, and I love the ‘original’ joysticks. Playing on a computer keyboard just can’t cut it for these games- and the original FlashBack joysticks were pretty bad!

Now I suppose it’s just my age, but watching the video game evolution happen while being a kid was pretty damn magical. Enjoying Space Invades, getting Pac-Man fever (sorry), and then seeing Donkey Kong- it’s no wonder that even though the fade passed, those games have more appeal today than say the hula-hoop. I still miss those old arcades- for a few dollars you could play Joust, Mappy, Omega Race, The Red Baron, Defenders, Wizard of Wor- even ‘newer’ games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Double Dragon, Bad Dudes, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat. What a way to spend an afternoon or an evening. Arcades today, for me anyway, are just kinda sad. A dance game, a shoot ‘em up, an expensive riding one, then just the same old games that have been around since 1930! No magic, no fun. So that’s why I feel games of those days still have merit. Sure you can’t walk around a virtual world, living out a movie plot- which don’t get me wrong is frick’n awesome. But the skill games of light, and high scores are great as well- and an iPad can’t compete with a dark lit room of neon and video, drinking soda with your friends as you are ‘are your own’ with a pocket full of quarters. So long live the Atari- or Sear Tele-Game, you blew our minds and you’re still fun. Even if some of the fun is now laughing at how silly it all looks :)
