For five years, we have covered the comics and toy industry, but the costs are catching up with us. Relying on advertising helps with some costs, but as we advance more and more, the amount of advertising we would need to fulfill our goal of spreading the love of collecting comics and toys becomes more than a site could handle and remain uncluttered, not to mention free of influence.

Toys R Us has released an official press release detailing their plan for closure. One thing to take note is there is a small chance that 200 stores could be saved and moved into the Canadian TRU division. It is yet to be seen if this will take place. As of today the company is moving towards the 60 day window to shutter the US division so lets hope a few can be saved. If Toys R Us closes, this will be a massive blow to the toy industry.
Archie Comics has a new addition to the Archie Horror line among its new releases this week, Vampironica. I shared an early look at it a month ago. I was excited at the time, and upon reading the preview Archie Comics sent out, I am still excited. Why, do you ask?
The Barbarella series from Dynamite has been hit or miss. The first issue was impressive enough, but the next two seemed less than stellar, to say the least. However, I was still intrigued by the treatment of the character. I decided to try the fourth issue. There was enough science fiction in that first story to be interesting.

By now most of you should have seen the series final of Star Wars Rebels and what an ending we had. It was filled with wonder, tears and laughter. It was a fitting end to a beloved series and surprisingly, it did something remarkable. This is where you WANT to stop reading if you want to avoid spoilers (go watch it!).
Dynamite has been setting out to expand their line into female friendly titles for some time. They've revamped their core titles featuring classic female characters like Deja Thoris, Vampirella and Red Sonja. Occasionally, we've seen titles aimed directly at children, like L'il Vampi and L'il Sonja. Dynamite has impressed me with the announcement of one particular new title, sticking with their tradition of redefining established characters. Dynamite is bring us new adventures for Nancy Drew.
