Rocko’s Modern Life Coming To KaBOOM!

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.

Giant Days Pays Tribute To Love, Actually

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

Review: SLAM! #4

I really like when comics delve into areas not usually covered by mainstream comics. Do you remember the last time that Marvel or DC delved into the world of roller derby? I had read the first issue, but it fresh after reading Bonnie N. Collide by Monica Gallagher, and it didn’t really click like it

Skybourne #1-2 Review

I've read the first two issues of Skybourne, and was prepared to dislike it. I didn't expect to hate it, mind you, but Frank Cho's work of late has appealed to a fan base that doesn't include me. Granted, the most visible of that work has been his sketch covers and I did miss Totally Awesome Hulk when it came out. Feeling horrible about my lack of giving his sequential work a fair hearing, I sat down to read the preview copies of Skybourne that Dynamite sent us.

Lumberjanes #29 – Review

I've had this weird relationship with Lumberjanes. I recognize the importance of this series, especially to girls and young women. Unfortunately, I've had trouble getting into it, even starting at the very beginning. I've mentioned in the past that I feel like it's because I am not the target audience. However, Lumberjanes #29 promises a new story arc, which are usually good jumping on points.

Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #3 Preview

One of the great things that have come out of cross-company crossovers is Luberjanes / Gotham Academy. Both series have found a strong fan base that are very similar, so the crossover just makes sense. It also has that fun feel of being something that a fan of both books would want to see. It also feels like a genuine attempt to expand the readership of both books, drawing in those readers of one title that are not yet reading the other. The third issue hits shops this Wednesday and BOOM! has graciously made a preview available to us.
