50/60's Twilight Zone, the 80's, millennium and recent ones also, all are in The Twilight Zone.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 October 2020 - 08:03 AM)

Twilight zone. Duh.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 October 2020 - 07:52 AM)

@  Paladin : (28 October 2020 - 06:17 AM)

have they actually gotten worse than the one where Homer gets paralyzed by a spider and has to learn to communicate through his farts?

@  unluckiness : (28 October 2020 - 05:53 AM)

It's only fitting that SImpsons have halloween specials since it's been a shambling corpse of its former self since its teens.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 04:12 AM)

No I caught one of the latest one with parodies of Stranger Things which admittedly is horror series but Heaven Can Wait and The Shape of Water are Fantasy films. Plus implications of the characters being sociopaths or twisted has become a norm these days.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

Which probably adds to the "reasons they should just stop making more of The Simpsons" pile.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

You make it sound like The Simpsons becoming less repetitive is a bad thing.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 02:48 AM)

Remember when Simpsons Halloween specials parodied horror movies and would have the characters make off out of character remarks like "we chucked donuts at a old man for kicks."? they don't and can't do that any more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 October 2020 - 08:00 PM)

Tired of the same old Halloween stuff? Check out Tubi. The depths of the schlock available is astounding.

It's weird to see how much of Larry Hama's "satire" from the old GI Joe comic has no longer become satire in the past few years.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

Isn't the 'pot leaf' (lmao!) a symbol of royalty or something? I didn't play SONIC THE HEDGEHOG or whatever the game so I don't know what the design is for but I remember Scourge wearing the leaf as a crown during hedgehog havoc (Amy, Rob, Silver, Metal, Rosy etc free for all when Scourge used anarchy beryls). I assumed it was an established authority/king symbol. I don't recall if King Shadow or King Sonic wore one in 30 years later.

Nope, just bad design. Like every other thing in Sonic 2006.

Not QUITE everything. Robotnik's Chaos Emerald Tracker glasses are hugging AWESOME.

Honestly, if you don't know how to draw characters like Sonic, then just don't accept the offer. Beats getting paid to trace. Leave that crap to Greg Land.

Got Sonic #236 today.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
There's a main story, and a backup.

Mainstory has the Freedom Fighters separating into two teams. Rotor leads one while Sonic leads the other.

Sonic's team is Team Fighters. Consists of him, Amy, and Tails.

They stop the invasion of Furville, and we learn half of Mobians are capable of being roboticized, and half are immune.

Backup focuses on Rotor's team, Team Freedom.

Consists of himself, Big, Cream, Cheese, and a rebuilt Heavy and Bomb.

Heavy and Bomb are the originals' personality cores in new bodies based on the games/the new models Eggman used.

I love it how Amy Rose isn't afraid to slap Sonic around. I know she's no longer lovesick when he's around anymore but it's still great to see. Team Fighters doesn't sound like a cool name. Great that the T-pup is in action. Who's that other guy from Furville? I'm not sure what kind of animal he is.

Rotor's back, nice, but I'm still not liking the suit. It's awesome that Heavy and Bomb are back in action. Yay for AI's! Big is a surprise and Cream too, all people. I'm glad that Deadly Cuddles is finally being used. Still waiting for Naugus to show how good he can be, if he will. The people ARE under his protection after all. Hey, where's Geoffrey?

Despite the cool stuff, felt like an in between issue. Gimme more!

It's two or three weeks behind but...

Dang it, I only got my copy of Mega Man 12 from the store yesterday and I lent to a friend so I can't properly review it right now. From what I can remember though...

I LOVED the beginning with the Light bots in action! Time Man doing his thing (my 11 year old nephew asked if he was a girl because of his colors and I told him Decepticons were also violet purple, lol). Fire Man fought fire with fire!!! He dispersed the mecha dragon's flames with his own? Can he do that?

I wasn't sure but was all of Elec Man's lower legs burned off? It was always obscured. Was it something Archie couldn't print so it had to be inferred? It LOOKED like he only had stumps. Dang, good job soldier. Awesome that Fire Man was the one who lead the way to his rescue; too bad we didn't get to see his leadership skills.

The Items were awesome but two item 2's? Only item 1 could be used multiple times for the impossible jump as a stairway. Haha, would have been hilarious if one of the Light Bot grabbed hold of item 3 since it's trademark is to bounce around until it touches a wall. That wouldn't be canon tho. And why couldn't any of the Light bots create the items? Is it only Mega Man who's capable of manifesting the items?

I hope Time and Oil Man aren't paired up together again. They were both riding with Guts Man. Just because they were active together, doesn't mean they have to hang out. This is unless the other six treat them differently, like second class bots cuz they're not quite in their generation, in which case, there's a story there. Oil Man was already bantering with Ice Man and working with Fire Man though. I'd like to see Time Man hang out with Elec Man more too, both being snooty snobbish guys, lmao!

On the boss run, the camera bots from the walls were missed. I imagine they would have left Time Man there, slowing them as much as he can to let the others through. Very cool to have the Light Bots deal with them. Though it kinda made sense to use Bomb Man to help Mega Man with the Crash signal device whatevers, I kinda wished it was another guy (cuz Bomb's not quite a fave). Very apt to call that place a maze. That boss battle was a puzzle for sure!

Metal Blades! Awesome to have them mentioned as the universal weapon. Would have been nice to show Quick Boomerang too since Quick Man was a huge focus in the past issues. I would have been happier if Bubble Lead took out the hologram like in the game. Mega Man could have panicked and changed to random weapon (and have a moment about robots making mistakes and having feelings) or used the acid as a room wide dispersal attack to eat through the wall (since it was depicted as liquid when he used it against Heat Man).

I felt like I missed a joke with Guts Man doing karaoke. What was it referencing? Actually same with the next issue. What universe is Plum from, is that lady with Light an established character? Same with the green guy. Also what about the la something or another ruins? Was the 'beyond the star' thing Wily was saying something from the Japanese or something Flynn just came up with? What was up with virus Mega Man's purple scarf again? Its not a tokusatsu thing, is it? Was the Light anti virus and item handheld computer a design that was used somewhere before? Is this like a pre cursor to Eddie Fliptop? We should have an annotated Archie Mega Man page or so.

Argh, why introduce Rush here? He could have waited until the next arc, really.

Yeah, the finale was rushed and crammed but it was a LOT of FUN! I kinda missed the Wily Bots. I thought maybe we'd see them in the boss rush but they ran away and have gone rogue when Wily hit the self destruct. That way, they could be roaming around the city, either being criminals (Quick Man felt like a malcontent, Bubble Man came off as a frustrated wannabe conqueror), trying to find their place in the world (Wood Man would certainly seek out his animal friends), possibly be useful (Air Man and Flash Man felt like they would ok with administrative duties) or just chill out (Heat Man was friendly enough).

Hmm, I may be getting my games wrong but Mega Man 3 was mining bots, already working in different sectors. Mega Man 4 was Cossack's bots. Mega Man 6 were stolen Robot Fair entries reprogrammed. So the next official Wily Bots would be Mega Man 5? Wily would have to rebuild the Mega Man 2 Wily bot series as his henchmen until he builds his next set.

I've read no spoilers on the next arc, in fact, I was surprised as heck to find out that it wasn't Mega Man 3 or the gameboy game. Pharoah Man is Mega Man 4 but he's a fave so I'm not complaining.

Will praise Ben Bates art again. It's so dynamic! The action jumps up from out of the page The expressions are great! Nope, I haven't seen the creative teams listed in upcoming issues so I hope he sticks around!

Great job on the finale! It wasn't perfect (adding more details on stages and bosses versus wrapping up the arc) but it was still a TON of FUN!!! icon-fire.gif

----

I checked out the destructiod preview pages of 13. Cossack seems young. I was expecting Pharoah Man to have his awesome cape from the us cartoon, lmao, dunno why. I'm thinking Emerald Spears is a play on Ruby Spears, lmao! Jonathan Hill is doing the art? Bates is gone? DARN! Hill is the guy who did the weeeeird art on Sonic's Return to Angel Island where Knuckles' bro Kneecaps was shown? That kinda sucked for me. But the art in the preview looks GREAT. Let's see how he does with action scenes.

Oh, Jonathan Gray! I got my Jon's mixed up! Yeah, Gray did the funky art in Return to Angel island. Love the blue jacket style he gave Ray the flying squirrel. Jon Hill is the artist of the next Mega Man arc. I didn't realize he was an artist too. He was hilarious in the modern 21 Jump Street and changed everything for Moneyball. Kidding icon-hotrod.gif

Ursa Magnus, are you in your 40s and have a son? There's a guy posting in the Bumbleking forum who's just as enthusiastic as you when it comes to the Crusaders. If that's not you, you should definitely go to the red circle forum in Bumbleking cuz they need all the Crusader attention they can muster. Ian Flynn reads the threads cuz it's his site (I think) so he'll pay attention to real fans of the classic comic. I dunno who Paul Kaminski is but he's probably the editor or some sort of head in Archie.

I'll check out the Crusaders too because I too would like to see how Flynn does with superheroes. He's got a winning streak so far:)

I dunno who Paul Kaminski is but he's probably the editor or some sort of head in Archie.

I'll check out the Crusaders too because I too would like to see how Flynn does with superheroes. He's got a winning streak so far:)

I am 40 and have 2 sons, but that guy isn't me. I did, however, just go and register there. Thanks for the heads-up. icon-ironhide.gif

The Items were awesome but two item 2's? Only item 1 could be used multiple times for the impossible jump as a stairway. Haha, would have been hilarious if one of the Light Bot grabbed hold of item 3 since it's trademark is to bounce around until it touches a wall. That wouldn't be canon tho. And why couldn't any of the Light bots create the items? Is it only Mega Man who's capable of manifesting the items?


I wouldn't stress game rules too much, or else Mega Man shouldn't be able to aim up or duck, either.

And it seems the support items run on the same Variable Weapons System that Mega Man's other weapons do.

QUOTE
Metal Blades! Awesome to have them mentioned as the universal weapon. Would have been nice to show Quick Boomerang too since Quick Man was a huge focus in the past issues. I would have been happier if Bubble Lead took out the hologram like in the game. Mega Man could have panicked and changed to random weapon (and have a moment about robots making mistakes and having feelings) or used the acid as a room wide dispersal attack to eat through the wall (since it was depicted as liquid when he used it against Heat Man).


Sounds like the Worlds of Power book.

QUOTE
I felt like I missed a joke with Guts Man doing karaoke. What was it referencing?


The karaoke, or the song?

Karaoke is Guts Man's favorite pastime; the song is referencing Roll's theme song from (if I remember right) Battle & Chase and Marvel vs. Capcom.

QUOTE
Actually same with the next issue. What universe is Plum from, is that lady with Light an established character? Same with the green guy.


Plum and, if I understand your question right, Ripot are from Battle & Chase. Dr. Lalinde is an all-new character, as is her robot, Quake Woman.

QUOTE
Also what about the la something or another ruins?


Super Adventure Rockman.

QUOTE
Was the 'beyond the star' thing Wily was saying something from the Japanese or something Flynn just came up with?


"Wily" turned into an alien; it was all part of his act.

QUOTE
What was up with virus Mega Man's purple scarf again? Its not a tokusatsu thing, is it?


In Mega Man Powered Up, you can unlock other Robot Masters to play as by defeating them with only your Mega Buster. When you play as one of those Robot Masters, "Mega Man?" takes their place with a decidedly meaner look... including the purple scarf.

QUOTE
Was the Light anti virus and item handheld computer a design that was used somewhere before?


Nothing I'm immediately aware of.

QUOTE
Is this like a pre cursor to Eddie Fliptop?


I'm doubtful.

QUOTE
We should have an annotated Archie Mega Man page or so.


...eh?

QUOTE
Argh, why introduce Rush here? He could have waited until the next arc, really.


Why not? It's not as though they focused on him for more than a page, and it clears the way for him to be there in the next one.

QUOTE
Yeah, the finale was rushed and crammed but it was a LOT of FUN! I kinda missed the Wily Bots. I thought maybe we'd see them in the boss rush but they ran away and have gone rogue when Wily hit the self destruct. That way, they could be roaming around the city, either being criminals (Quick Man felt like a malcontent, Bubble Man came off as a frustrated wannabe conqueror), trying to find their place in the world (Wood Man would certainly seek out his animal friends), possibly be useful (Air Man and Flash Man felt like they would ok with administrative duties) or just chill out (Heat Man was friendly enough).

Hmm, I may be getting my games wrong but Mega Man 3 was mining bots, already working in different sectors. Mega Man 4 was Cossack's bots. Mega Man 6 were stolen Robot Fair entries reprogrammed. So the next official Wily Bots would be Mega Man 5? Wily would have to rebuild the Mega Man 2 Wily bot series as his henchmen until he builds his next set.


I have a hunch as to why they were not revived, aside from space issues... suffice to say, I think you can count on their return before too long.

QUOTE
I've read no spoilers on the next arc, in fact, I was surprised as heck to find out that it wasn't Mega Man 3 or the gameboy game. Pharoah Man is Mega Man 4 but he's a fave so I'm not complaining.


And now you can get to know him better before Mega Man shines a light in his eyes and puts a gun to his head.

Anyone pick-up Sonic Super Special magazine for the 10 page original comic? I couldn't rationalize paying $10 bucks for the story, so I hope it isn't essential to the story arc. If anything, I kinda feel that they should've made the Super Special Magazine story the Free Comic Book Day story and put the prose junk in the magazine...


I got one to see how I liked it.

And while it's good (and I wound up getting a good one to sample, given Sonic 4 Ep. II), I'm not sure I can justify the $10 price tag...

...might look at a subscription, though. Maybe.

Pharoah Man's a little bland, or at least, I don't know what to think of him. He's all jerky and irritable at the start, then at the end he's all nervous and confused. Also, he needs a cape. I loved the explanation for his name, motif and function, though. It's so ridiculous, but in a perfect kind of way.

The best contribution of the 90's cartoon!
