Rocko's Modern Life is one of those Nickelodeon series that gets overshadowed by the more heavily marketed and longer-running cartoons like Rugrats, Spongebob Squarepants, Wild Thornberrys, and Doug among others. It has its own legacy and episodes like "I Have No Son" and "Unbalanced Load" still resonate in my memory with classic lines such as "NEVER!" and "Laundry Day is a very dangerous day." Fans of the series probably have found themselves using Heffer's catch phrase, "That was a hoot!" in response to jokes with friends. BOOM! Studios just announced that Rocko's Modern Life is getting a series from its all ages imprint kaBOOM! this December.
So, there are comics that really connect with a reader not because they're entertaining, or drawn well, or because the characters are interesting, but because they are about something more personal and intimate. Kim & Kim: Love Is A Battlefield looks to be one of those books.

"Our long, national nightmare is over." - Gerald Ford, 8/9/1974 Of course, by using that quote, I could be referring to the story of Hydra taking over America using a leader that was once the paragon of American values. I could also be referring to a comics event that has been, from its inception, criticized for it's lack of taste in corrupting an iconic hero. As I begin typing these words, I still have no idea of where I am going with this review. Nevertheless, let's get started, and be warned, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Lenore is one of those 1990s comics that is fondly remembered by lots of people. If you remember it fondly, then you'll be pleased to know that Titan Comics is releasing The Bloody Best of Lenore, in time for her 25th anniversary.
Rose City Comic Con is the major convention for Portland, a fantastic city for comics and art. Image Comics has announced their plans for this year's Rose City Comic Con. I provides comics fans something to do in between waiting in lines for Peter Capaldi, Weird Al Yankovic, Dominic Cooper, and others.
There's a new Doctor Who event under way at Titan Comics. The four modern Doctors are crossing over to face a grand threat. These always have lots of promise, and Titan's preview for this crossover is better than any of the previous ones that I've seen.
Tank Girl is one of those characters in comics that illustrates that the rules of continuity and plot don't have to be completely rigid. She also shows that comics can be completely fun while spitting in the face of "mainstream culture." We'll probably do a better, full article on the character as the 30th anniversary of her publication in the UK comics magazine Deadline approaches, ad may even do a review of the 1995 film that starred Lori Petty, Ice-T and Malcolm McDowell. The current home for Tank Girl is Titan Comics, who is planning a hardcover book, The Way of Tank Girl.
Sorry for the lateness of this. I started it on a slow day and thought I could fit in the final editing during a slow moment that never seemed to come. Love, Actually is a modern-era classic film from 2003 filled with British actors that almost everyone knows relatively well, and a few that went
