The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario *wheeze*

It's too hot here.

@  Echowarrior : (15 January 2019 - 11:03 PM)

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

I'm currently in development on an IP of my own creation, the DynoGuard (previously DinoKnights), so here's some stuff to buzz about as we move into the early pitch stages. 
 
---
​​
Sixty-five million years ago, the world was populated by talking, technologically advanced dinosaurs. These Dinosovians were protected by the DynoGuard, a team of rescue specialists clad in advanced mechanical Aegis Armor, and powered by the DynoBond, a machine-dinosaur interface that unlocks their innate super-abilities.
 
tumblr_pafq3lzf6U1vpvc3zo1_1280.jpg
 
Then the monster meteor Apothis, a living nightmare that consumes the life of whole worlds, came to feast upon the Earth. With doom approaching, the lead researcher at Science Tower One altered his experimental Time Slip technology to send their civilization forward in time thousands of years to avoid the devastation.
 
tumblr_pafq3lzf6U1vpvc3zo2_1280.jpg
 
But something went wrong...
 
An epoch later, Science Tower One partially rematerializes in the modern world, merging with Spire Observatory outside Granite Mountain, Colorado. It brings with it five Dinosovians: Sheriff Rex (a Dracorex), Brach (a Brachiosaurus), Linn (a Velociraptor), Kyle (an Ankylosaurus), and Zara (a Parasaurolophus). Marooned in a strange new world of mammals and unfamiliar technology, they cannot know when—or even if—the rest of their people will return.
 
tumblr_pag66em7Yq1vpvc3zo1_1280.jpg
 
This would have been difficult enough without the return of Apothis, injured and trapped in Earth’s orbit. Now he sends the Fossil Ghouls, an army of monsters lead by the ever-changing skeletal warlord Extinxion, to destroy the DynoGuard and make way for the restoration of their master.
 
It’s a good thing the dinos have human friends, like teen cryptozoologist Jason James, his astronomer father Sagan James and the backing of tech billionaire Gloria Anning, because the Fossil Ghouls are just the tip of the villainous iceberg! The battle is on!
 
Roar into the Future with The DynoGuard!
 
I'm posting art updates more or less daily on our tumblr and our facebook page.

I've been following this on your Tumblr for a while now. I'm really excited to see this take off for your because I'd love to know more about this. Just from the little we know, and the premise, it just sounds so awesome.

Meet Dimetrogorgon, a Fossil Ghoul whose mountain-sized ego is matched only by his volcanic temper. His fiery sail absorbs energy directed against him to fuel his incendiary powers. This sizzling synapsid is a powerful warrior, but how long will Extinxion tolerate a minion more arrogant than himself?

Coldsnap, everyone. Everyone, Coldsnap.

She’s a cold-blooded dunkleostreus pirate queen and the Fossil Ghoul’s answer to the likes of Tyrannocopter and the Tankylosaur. For reference, the throne is sized for Extinxion.

Meet Jason James, teen cryptozoologist and the first human member of the DynoGuard! He and Linn become fast friends when Science Tower One re-materializes on top of the observatory where his father, Sagan, was hired as director. Through his courage, remarkably-useful folklore/cryptozoology knowledge aid his ability to pilot the DynoSphere (a half-scale prototype only he can fit in), he earns a place as the first human cadet in the DynoGuard!
