I thought some of you might get a kick out of this--original image from "The Bravest Warriors", from the same people who bring you Adventure Time.



Have a safe and warm week!

It's holiday wishlist time once again, see [community profile] holiday_wishes and [community profile] wish_list and as usual, I'm doing a themed mix CD as my outgoing gift.

This year's theme is to honor the end of the Mayan calendar on 12/21/12, and the possibility, slim though it may be, that the world will end.

THE WORLD IS ALWAYS ENDING (2012 Edition)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


So, Stan Lee has been around a long time. Over the years, he's come up with a lot of ideas. Some were great, many were pretty good, some needed a bit more work to be viable, and a handful were truly awful So by now, Stan has a briefcase full of ideas of varying quality and every time he runs a bit short of lunch money, he opens up the briefcase and sells one of his spare ideas.

A couple of years back, Stan Lee sold a couple of ideas to the folks over in Japan. This is one of them.

It was an animated series, and this is a tie-in comic for fans of the show. Fans will quickly spot the usual Stan Lee touches: underdog teen hero, bullying jock, elderly relative who must be protected, Stan Lee cameo...plus the manga staples like an enormous robot controlled by a hot-blooded teenager, and a romantic interest who wears a tiny skirt even in the most inappropriate circumstances.

The combination works pretty well, but long-time fans will find much of the material very familiar. I'd recommend it mostly to junior high kids who will strongly idenify with Joey and HeroMan.
