(PG-13) The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons: A Semi-serious A-to-Z Archive contains almost 3,000 cartoons from over a century of publication. The illustrations are split into two volumes, 250 categories and 1,600 pages. Also in deluxe and as an ebook.
The debut trailer for Dark Phoenix was intriguing, but Darth Blender’s take on it looks way more exciting. They used scenes from the classic ’90s X-Men animated series, which did take on the Dark Phoenix saga. It’s a shame they didn’t use scenes from the actual battle.
(PG-13: Language) Actor Nick Offerman already has a pretty solid day job, but in case his good looks and manly voice ever fade, he’s got a career he can fall back on – writing captions for the famed (but often esoteric) cartoons from The New Yorker. Seriously, they should hire him.
(Gore) Originally aired in 2010 – and later released on DVD – Marvel and BET’s Black Panther is a motion comic miniseries with lots of action and cheesy humor. The miniseries sees T’Challa go up against a group of supervillains trying to take over Wakanda.
“I refuse to answer a literal call to adventure, Morty. Let it go to voicemail.” The new season brings us Pickle Rick, Morty’s giant arm, some creepy dude smashing heads with a giant piano, and gooey mutants galore in “the darkest year” of their adventures. Episodes kick off 7/30/17.
Disney XD is updating this late ’80s classic, and if the new opening credit sequence is any indication, we’re going to be tuning in for sure. Golden Wolf created the show’s wonderful new titles, packed with adventure and backed by that awesome theme song. Premieres 8/12/17.
(SPOILERS) It’s been four freakin’ years, but the second season of Attack on Titan is finally coming. Unfortunately for us, the huge reveals are already popping up in the trailers. We sacrificed ourselves for you! Now run! Wait until 4/1/17. Mirror here.
Jack is Back. Set 50 years after the events of the fourth season, the final 10 episodes of Samurai Jack sees our hero not only seeking for a way home but also for a way to die, because his time traveling adventures have rendered him immortal. Premieres 3/11/17.
Attack on Titan‘s anime adaptation is criminally behind the manga, but for many of us it doesn’t really matter. Check out the new villains and foes that enter the scene in the continuation of Hajime Isayama’s brutal action fantasy story. Drops 4/2017 on Funimation. Mirror here.
YouTuber kaptainkristian talks about the collaborative effort that led to the creation of Warner Bros.’ enduring cartoon character. Then he points out why Bugs and his cartoons remain a treat to watch after all these years, before (unnecessarily) trash talking Mickey Mouse.
Take a look at the new Lion Force crew and robots in the first full trailer for Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender. If the cartoon’s tone and action seem familiar, that’s because its showrunners used to work on Nick’s sublime Avatar series. Form hype and hype!
