Mazinga Z


    Who knew there would be so many classic Japanese cartoons available on home video, either DVD or Blu Ray now?  I had those Hong Kong DVD sets of both Mazinga Z and Devilman with their wonderfully off English subtitles.  Now they are both available, along with several other shows.  It's just amazing.  I've got the entire run of Gatchaman shows to get through now, and several other sets that I haven't opened yet.

Aqua Cave

It has been quite a while since there were any posts here.  I am writing the Xenorama books these days, which takes up most of my free time.  I loved the blog, but I'd really rather hold physical printed material in my hands when I read.  Call me old fashioned.

I'm currently working on an issue of Xenorama dedicated to some of my favorite comic books.  I have about 10 issues in various states of completion, and this is by no means done.   It's full of mostly Marvel and DC stories from when I was growing up, but there are some other surprises in there.

One of them is Aquaman.  I'm glad that his movie was a little successful, and I quite enjoyed it when I saw it in the theater.  I wrote about him about ten years ago, before the Brave and Bold cartoon made him outrageous and liked him then.

The shows are all great, but while watch Captain Scarlet the people look more like dolls, because they look too good.

Xenorama #22 is for sale!

The newest issue of Xenorama is out!  It's chock full of dinosaur goodness, from toys, comic books, TV shows and movies, more than you can imagine!  It's 40 full color pages of prehistoric animals, though not many are mammals, cause why bother?  They are there, you just have to look for them.

Solo (2018)

I have not seen a new star wars movie in a theater since 1983. The non special edition doesn't count.  This was pretty fun.
