The good news is that this Regular Show is heading into outer space when it returns to Cartoon Network for its eighth season on September 26. In "One Space at a Time," the Park and its groundskeeping staff have been blasted off from Earth, and they're going to be staying there for the rest of the season. The bad news, though, is that this is all building to the end of Regular Show. Season Eight will culminate in the series finale.
If there's one thing that has made the nightmare of existence worth it over the past few years, it's been the revival of and new appreciation for the classic Batman television show. Between the long-awaited release of the series on DVD and the new adventures that have been running in the Batman '66 comic book, it's been a good time to be a fan of what is unquestionably the greatest mass-media incarnation of the Dynamic Duo. But in a few months, we're getting something all new and amazing.
On October 11, Warner Bros. will release Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader, a new animated movie that's not just based on Batman '66, but also features original series actors Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, reprising their roles as Batman, Robin, and Catwoman.
Dick Grayson has had a pretty interesting couple of years. He had his identity exposed, he faked his death, he went undercover as an international super-spy in an organization dedicated to finding out other heroes' secret identities and weaknesses, and he even taught a few classes in gymnastics. But for Batman's first partner, that's the superheroic equivalent of going off to college.
Now, he's donning the mask once again and returning to his former codename, and with Nightwing: Rebirth on shelves this week, ComicsAlliance spoke to writer Tim Seeley about the challenge of moving Dick back into his familiar identity, the metaphor behind his return to Gotham City, and just why it is that the first arc of the new series is called "Better Than Batman."
If you're even tangentially into anime or tokusatsu, then you're probably already familiar with SH Figuarts, the high-end line of action figures from Bandai and Tamashii Nations, but if you're not, let me tell you how much I love them. They've been around for a few years now, and with their dedication to high levels of articulation, screen-accurate sculpts and an incredible amount of interchangeable hands, faces, and accessories, they're arguably some of the best action figures you can get --- and since most of their output has to do with Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and Sailor Moon, I'm always keeping an eye out for their next big release.
And now, it looks like I've got to clear off another shelf. This December, as part of what I can only assume is a mission to target me, specifically, they're releasing the first two entries in a line based on late '90s WWE Superstars, starting with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock. And yes: Austin comes with a beadazzled skull vest and a couple of Stevewiesers.
So here's what you need to know: The canonical Sherlock Holmes, as written by Arthur Conan Doyle, has a brother named Mycroft who is presented as being arguably smarter than the famous detective, but far more secretive, choosing to spend his days in the Diogenes Club rather than galavanting around dealing with snake murders and tripping over waterfalls. This, of course, is not the obscure fact that it once was, as more recent portrayals of Holmes have played up Mycroft's role considerably --- to the point where he's now starring in his own comic.
But I think it's fair to say that for this adventure of Mycroft Holmes, the character is far, far less notable than one of the creators working on the book. When it hits shelves in August, Mycroft Holmes And The Apocalypse Handbook comes courtesy of co-writer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who may be best known for his career as a basketball player, activist, novelist, and --- as an actor --- the only cast member of Airplane to also fight Bruce Lee.

Some of the most intense debates over minor comic details often come from one single element of the superhero genre: Batman's costume. Yellow oval or black bat? Belt pouches or capsules? Blue and grey or all black? With as many variations as there have been on one of the most iconic looks in history, there's no shortage of things to argue about, and today, we're going to settle one of the most long-lasting debates: How long should Batman's ears be?
Today is, of course, April Fool's Day, which means that there's a pretty good chance that you're going to be spending a good amount of time dodging "pranks" that are really just lies masquerading as good-natured shenanigans. If that's the case, and you're looking for something to read while you try to dodge all the mischief in the air, then I have some good news. Comixology is celebrating the day with a big sale featuring that most Aprilest of Fools, the Joker.
If you watched the DC Comics panel at last weekend's WonderCon in Los Angeles, then you saw the reveals of all the titles and most of the creative teams for the company's upcoming "Rebirth" event. Mixed in with those, though, was one more announcement about DC's upcoming plans: When Justice League #50 hits shelves next month as the climax to "The Darkseid War," Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok are planning to give the Joker a "real identity" that will presumably go beyond just being Gotham City's most notoriously murderous clown.
It's a bold move, especially since it's happening in the company's flagship team book rather than in a solo Batman title. In the days since the panel, the news has got a whole lot of people --- myself included --- talking about the possibilities of what we're going to see in April. If the Joker's not just the Joker, then who is he?
For some reason, everyone seems to be buzzing this week about Batman fighting people in the movies - even more so than usual, I mean. If that's the kind of story that's sparked your interest today, then friend, you could do a lot worse than spending the next six minutes watching Batman vs. Terminator, a stop-motion fan-film in which the Dark Knight returns in a future dominated by Skynet and its killer robots.
Produced by YouTuber Captain McKay - who I think we can assume was bitten by a radioactive McKay at some point in the past - the project uses Mezco's Dark Knight Returns Batman figure and NECA's Terminator figure, and the results are pretty amazing. Give it a watch!
Oh, you like anime? Yeah, that's pretty cool, I guess, but I've kind of moved past stuff like Dragon Ball and Naruto and onto something a little more sophisticated. Hm? Oh, my favorite series? That's easy: it's called The New McDonald's Recruiting Campaign About A Girl Who Gets A Job At McDonald's And Has To Earn Her Supervisor's Trust and Friendship Through Hard Work And Dedication. It's pretty much the best series I've ever seen.
With Archie and Jughead already part of the reboot, Betty and Veronica on the way soon and Sabrina the Teenage Witch reimagined as a gothic Lovecraftian horror story, the one major title that seems missing from Archie's current lineup is Josie and the Pussycats. It seems almost inevitable that we're going to get them at some point --- especially considering that we've been due for a Josie revival for coming up on fifteen years now --- but it doesn't seem like one is planned.
Tthat doesn't mean you can't catch up on the classic adventures of Midvale's greatest rockers with the latest installment of the Archie 75 Series. It's a 75-page digital collection set to collect stories from the long history of the Pussycats --- dating back to before they even were the Pussycats --- and you can check out a preview right here!
Over the past few weeks, we here at ComicsAlliance have asked our readers to decide which stories represent the best alternate takes on Superman and Batman, and now, the time has come to complete the DC Trinity.
With her origins in the epics of Greek mythology mixed with the pulp-style adventure of a lost island full of mystical warriors, Princess Diana of Themyscira has the ability to adapt to almost any sort of story, from straightforward superhero action to the kind of sci-fi that involves invisible airplanes and purple healing rays. As for who put the best tweaks and changes on that formula, it's up to you to decide --- read on for our assembled Wonder Women, and cast your vote to see who's the best!
