In 2000, CrossGen Comics launched. Founded by millionaire Mark Alessi, CrossGen sought to expand the comics industry by forgoing super-hero titles and focusing on the Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Victorian Mystery, and Sword and Sorcery genres. Each of CrossGen’s titles stood on their own but was tied to a greater mythology thanks to a Sigil, which was the source of many characters powers.
The “sigil bearers” were supposed to join forces against a cosmic threat called the Negation in the mini-series, NEGATION WAR that would cap off four years of stories. Unfortunately, CrossGen went out of business after the second issue shipped? So what would’ve happened? Only NEGATION WAR writer Tony Bedard knew, until now…
I reached out to Tony to find out his plans for NEGATION WAR. Who’d live? Who’d die? How would the series end? Click to find out. (more…)

When I go swimming I think about things. Today, I was thinking about how DC Comics has been reviving old Hanna-Barbera cartoons and giving them a “mature” makeover. The Flintstones is now social commentary, Wacky Races in an post-apocalyptic wasteland, the Hanna-Barbera action heroes getting a shared universe, and of course Scooby Apocalypse. I thought about who else could use a “mature makeover” and it hit me: Captain Planet! (more…)

This Friday Netflix will release Voltron: Legendary Defender, a reimagining of the classic TV series I grew up with.
Voltron has a special place in my heart. It’s a mix of my favorite genres: Sci-Fi and Fantasy, and robots. Plus, (in addition to Robotech) it kickstarted my love of Anime. Personally, Voltron means much more. I was an “Assistant Editor” on the Media Blasters DVD. I’ll never forget when I went to New Jersey to look at footage for extras and discovered the long lost original pilot. I wrote an article for Protoculture Addicts about my experience.
To prepare for the new Netflix series, I’m rewatching the classic show and thought I’d share my favorite episodes with you. Click below and comment if you agree or disagree. (And if you want to watch a few of these episodes check out the Voltron You Tube Page.)
