The Nameless City is the first of three books by Faith Erin Hicks set in a diverse fantasy world. The second, The Stone Heart, is out this week.

I’m not surprised to see this choice for an adaptation — Hicks’ animation background can be seen […]

Boomerang Streaming Service Coming for Animation

I applaud Warner Bros. for embracing the streaming market. For those who can’t or won’t pay inflated cable TV prices, Warner has created services like FilmStruck (by TCM) to bring content to subscribers directly. Now they’ve got one for animation fans.

The “massive Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes, and MGM animation library […]

Are You Going to Visit Riverdale?

The Archie Comics-inspired Riverdale TV series debuts this Thursday, January 26, at 9 Eastern/8 Central on The CW. Unlike how most people think of the comics, it’s not a goofy comedy about a guy tripping over things while trying to date two girls. It’s being heavily compared to Twin Peaks, with a strong noir flavor. The “Moment” trailer, in which Cheryl Blossom vows to avenge the death of her twin Jason, doesn’t look like the comics at all… but very […]
