Space Ghosts Returns!

 Space Ghost is back in a new comic book series from Dynamite. Issue #1 dropped last week and there are incredible amount of variant covers. Between foil variants and retailer exclusives, there are over 40!

 
Since my introduction to Space Ghost was Saturday morning cartoons in the 80s, this is my favorite cover. A superhero in outer space. How can you go wrong? Being able to fly and turn invisible are great powers but what I really like are his power bands because it seemed like he had a ray for just about everything packed in there.

Monthly Media Recap - April 2024

Grab a drink and some snacks because we've got a bit longer than average post this month!



Series

Fallout (2024, Amazon Prime)
Fallout is a bit of a blind area in my gaming experience. I've only briefly dabbled with some of the games and have never been able to get into them. That didn't impact my enjoyment of the show one bit though! From what little I do know about the games, it seems like they captured that world wonderfully. Also, not recommended for the squeamish.

Movies

 
 
If Tim Burton and John Hughes made a movie in the 80s, this would be that weird offspring. It's quirky and fun with some dark humor. Cole Sprouse is great as the resurrected man despite having almost no dialog. And I can't say enough about Kathryn Newton, she is well on her way to Scream Queen status.

Rating: 8/10



I couldn't find an English dub of the trailer but just trust me on this one. It's a perfect fantasy/adventure/martial arts/horror movie for a party night. It's wild and goofy but somehow still very entertaining. Just watch the trailer and you'll see what I mean.

Rating: 6/10

Star Wars Doorables

 Disney is at it again with their successful Doorables line of tiny, cute versions of beloved characters but this time, they're off to a galaxy far, far away.


I haven't gone too far into Doorables in the past but I do have the Nightmare Before Christmas and Haunted Mansion sets. I've picked up an occasional impulse buy when I see the assortment contains characters I want to get...never do end up with the ones I was hoping for.

But with the Star Wars license, there's not any character I wouldn't want! Doorables are a blind pack series so you never know what you're getting. Unless you go online and look up the codes that people have figured out that tell you what's in each pack. Mrs Dex thinks that's cheating but I call it targeted acquisition.
 
There's a few different options, so let's pop open one of these Death Star balls first.
