We had all sorts of news items come up this week, and not all of them were Covid-19 related.
We start out talking about the success of Trolls World Tour after Universal decided to open the movie in a digital download format this past weekend. With its success, will that mean the end of traditional movie releases? We talk a bit about that.
We then jump into the comic community coming together to try to help hurting independent bookstores and comicbook shops. In addition, we talked about Donnie Cates paying off customer pulls and Todd McFarlands’s idea to save comics.
In wonderful nostalgia news, Hulu’s reboot of Animaniacs is moving forward, and it seems that the original voice actors for Yakko, Wakko, Dot, Pinky, and The Brain have all been working hard already. Rumor is a fall debut may be in the cards.
Sorry I Called the Cops
Michael brings a story about a woman who called the cops on someone who was acting suspicious in her neighborhood. Turns out, it was just one of her neighbors who was playing Pokemon Go with her daughter. The woman who called the cops felt bad and sent a Pokemon cake to her neighbors as a peace offering.
We talk about the classic DC limited series Kingdom Come, written by Mark Waid with art from Alex Ross. In it, Superman has socially distanced himself from the world after a hero named Magog killed the Joker and was not punished for it. After that, heroes continued to one-up each other in the violence they used to “protect” the world.
