She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

I am excited to see that She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has been so well-received. This relaunch of the 1980s cartoon show has a more modern sensibility, and it allows the character to stand on her own instead of being a He-Man adjunct. (I haven’t had a chance to see the show yet, but I believe it, since the revamp was created by Noelle Stevenson, whose Nimona, which did something similar to fantasy adventure stories, won an Eisner a […]

A Warner Streaming Service Shut Down by New Owner

The glory days of video streaming, where one or two services could get you all you wanted to watch, may be coming to an end as more companies seek to monetize their own content. Now that AT&T owns Time Warner, they are shutting down DramaFever, a service dedicated to Korean drama and other Asian programming that launched in 2009 and was acquired by Warner in 2016.

Batman: Complete Animated Series Comes to Blu-ray With Digital Copy

Ten years ago, one of the world’s favorite superhero cartoons made it to home video in a deluxe package. Batman: The Complete Animated Series was a 17-DVD set put out in 2008 to allow fans to rewatch the astounding, deco-influenced animation and the milestone-setting voice acting.

The Sabrina Teaser Is Certainly Creepy!

Netflix will release The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka, on October 26, just in time for Halloween. Originally planned to run on the CW as a Riverdale spin-off, the show, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, moved to Netflix for a planned two seasons of ten episodes each. Probably a good thing, since I don’t see all of this witchiness and demon worship (see trailer below) playing on a network. Boy, Shipka looks good in the role, though!
