Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season Three on Blu-ray

Completing the trilogy of seasons, Warner Archive has released season three of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Blu-ray. This final season only had 13 episodes, contained here on one Blu-ray disc, but there are some real gems, with many inspired by famous comic stories or nostalgia for a certain style of storytelling. The season begins with “Joker: The Vile and the Villainous!”, an episode from the villain’s perspective as he teams up with his inspiration, the Golden Age […]

Comet TV Comes to Streaming Boxes

Comet TV, the network with the aim of bringing “audiences everywhere the best in science fiction and horror programming” has taken another step towards that goal by releasing apps for Roku (series 3 and 4) and Apple TV (generation 4).

IDW Collecting For Better or For Worse in Library Editions

There are few long-running comic strips recognized as so important and affecting as to have their entire run collected in handsome hardcovers.

Beginning in October, IDW will be releasing For Better or For Worse: The Complete Library by Lynn Johnston. The series, which ran from 1979-2008, will be collected in nine hardcover […]

It’s a caper series with plenty of mythological and literary allusions, spun off from a series of three TV movies starring Noah Wyle (who also occasionally […]
