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.

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...

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)

@  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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

We adopted a pupper! He's a very rare Doofus / Muppet mix (see Fig. 1). The vet burst out laughing when she first saw him.

He's loving, playful, child-safe, doing well with house training, sleeps the night, and quiet as a ghost (in a week he has seriously made no sound at all). The only issue is that he chews a lot, which I know is normal but still needs to be monitored.

Is it okay to select a special towel or blanket for him to chew? What if he swallows some of the dyes or fabrics? He's particularly fond of chewing our ex-dog's doggy bed, which I assumed would be safe but when I stick my fingers into the new hole he ripped it feels like there's fabric or nylon stuffing inside that he could swallow. I've looked up reviews of chew toys and there are always some saying "My dog managed to swallow some, my dog cracked his teeth"....

Any recommendations? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Since he is a puppy he is going to chew everything.  Having recently gone through this, and still am actually my dog is a prolific chewer, here are some of the things my dog likes.

 

First off, I would avoid the soft, plush toys with the squeeky things in them.  My dog destroys these toys in less then a few minutes trying to get at the noisemaker. 

 

What really works well for me are the hard chew toys and also cow hoofs.  They cow hoofs especially are great since they are cheap.  Bones also work well.  With both of these, make sure to monitor he status of the hoofs/bones, as they will get chewed down enough that they may become a choking hazard.  Just remove them when it does happen and replace with a new one.

 

Since your puppy is teething, her eis a really great trick that will help them.  Take an old washcloth, dampen it, and then put it in the freezer.  When it is frozen, then give it to you puppy.  The cold washcloth with help sooth the inflamed gums the puppy has from the teething.

 

Once last thing, since it is a teething puppy, expect it to go after furniture.  To counter this, you can get various sprays that will make the items non-palatable.  Bitter apple spray is a real popular one, for example.

yay cute puppers! I've heard my vet recommend the KONG brand (non rubber) toys to dog owners. Chewy.com has a nice section of dog-safe toys as well and even will guide you with suggestions based on size/age.

That's a cute dog. I also recommend deer antlers and the like. Rawhide can be bad for smaller dogs as the pieces can be swallowed and cause issues digesting with smaller dogs.

Don't give your dog anything to chew on that smells or feels like something you don't want them to chew on.

If you let your dog chew on sticks, expect your wooden furniture to get gnawed.

If you give them one of those knotted fabric ropes, expect fabric upholstry and possibly clothes to get chewed up.

If Dog has a stuffed toy, don't be surprised if he goes for someone else's stuffed toys too.

Vinyl squeaky toys? Kiss your Kaiju collection goodbye.

Frozen towel and bitter apple spray are working - thanks for the great suggestions!

How many shots is it safe for a dog to get at once? My dopey bro is getting the rabies shot and distemper booster on Friday, I had thought while I was there I'd get the kennel cough shot too just to get it over with. But is 3 at a time too much?

We will probably skip the lepto shot. My in-laws' dog died the day he got that.

I would check with the vet on the number of shots.  My dog tends to get hers in pairs, but you also have a puppy, and they do need a bunch of them.

 

Be ready for repeat visits for shots to the Vet.  How old is the dog btw, that also will effect things.

7 months. Vet says 3 shots at once is safe, so I guess we're a go unless I get cold feet.

So about that lepto shot: people are starting to warn me and guilt me over not doing it. Other dog owners here - what did you do? Did it have bad side effects?

It should be okay to give the shot.  Talk with your vet about it.  They're more knowledgeable about the threats in your area.

 

Pets can have a reaction to the lepto shot.  In my case, the breeder said not to give the shot because of previous reactions in the blood line.  My vet has been okay with that.
