If you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, then chances are that DuckTales was a pretty big part of your life. The series launched in the fall of 1987 and was part of the Disney Afternoon line-up for years culminating in 100 episodes and a big screen adventure called DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. If you miss those golden days, or wish you could share them with the child in your life, there’s good news because Disney is bringing DuckTales back next summer in an all-new series on Disney XD, and below you can watch the very teasing teaser.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And the most expensive. Heating bills rise in the chilly weather, decorations aren’t exactly cheap and it seems like there are more and more people to buy for every year. It doesn’t help that the perfect gifts for the nerds you love can reach some eye-wateringly high prices. The passion of some collectors can drive costs to extremes. And that’s not always a bad thing. Without the fervour of people like that, a lot of cool comics and other interesting bits and pieces might never be propelled to the platforms they deserve. But it does mean that the common or garden nerd can be priced out of the some of the more exciting merchandise. (more…)
Videogame tie-in novels get a bad rap. Sure, they’re often cynical cash-ins that get farted out by games studios periodically to milk cash from innocent, story-hungry gamers, but they aren’t all terrible. In fact, in recent years big names in the Science fiction and fantasy community have come forward, recognising the creative opportunities of playing in other people’s imagined worlds and shedding light on the stories that lurk in the background of their favourite game series. Mass Effect, the sprawling RPG with limitless potential for storytelling, just signed up a new author to pen their latest novel, and they may have just won the jackpot.
Recall, if you will, that strange development a few months ago where it was announced that ABC and Marvel Studios were developing a series based on The Inhumans. More ambitiously then that, the pilot will be screened in IMAX theatres for two weeks prior to the show’s small screen premiere, which mean the pressure is on to make Inhumans more than a great TV experience, but a great big screen experience, at least for episode one. So no pressure, right? Still, Marvel will need someone who knows how to meet and exceed expectations with less-well-known characters, so enter the man behind the TV show version of the invincible Iron Fist. (more…)
It’s the season to be jolly. But of course, on The Flash, Barry finds a way to put everyone in a sad state. With Savitar running around (some pun intended), can you really blame him? Yes and no. The episode, which is titled, “The Present,” can be interpreted many different ways. It’s a bit of a present to the fans for bringing back some popular characters, especially another version of Mark Hamill‘s The Trickster (who looks very much like another character he’s known for). Another way to look at the title is a meaning of time – as in the past, present, and future. Once again, time is knocking on Barry’s door, but in a direction he’s never gone before.

For a relatively niche part of the Marvel universe, Guardians of the Galaxy was an enormous hit when it was released in cinemas in 2014. Between Chris Pratt’s crude yet quirky Star Lord and the absurdly lovable duo of Rocket and Groot, it had all the right ingredients to make people laugh and warm their hearts. It came as no surprise when a sequel was announced and the fan base has only grown since the trailer for the new movie was released recently and we all got a look at Baby Groot in action. (more…)
