CBS Consumer and ReedPOP Team Up to Give Us Star Trek: Mission New York

In honor of Star Trek's 50th Anniversary, ReedPOP and CBS Consumer Products are joining forces to give us all they've got in the form of an all-new, original Star Trek fan experience. 

I am really excited about this, because unlike Wilderowens, I am a recent Trek lover. What can I say? I grew up in a Star Wars home. But I am loving what I'm seeing. I've watched all the movies, but I really hadn't done much with the shows until recently. I can't tell you how badly I'm slapping myself for not doing this sooner. And that's why I'm so excited about it ST: MNY. This will be the first time I can truly be a part of this amazing community. My goal is to try and finish all the shows, yes, including Enterprise, by Mission. I'm not sure I'll be able to do it, but I'm going to try. So, while I go and watch a few more episodes of Next Gen, you should read the press release and learn more.

[IGH] At The Movies: Review of Batman: Bad Blood

Taken at the Batman: Bad Blood World Premiere in NYC

By Reboot

This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending the world premiere of Batman: Bad Blood with some of the other [IGH]ers. They didn’t allow any food or drink in the theater, which is always a bad start when it comes to a movie viewing, but I still had a good time! The movie itself was fun and definitely had moments that shined. I had a few qualms with it as well.

Real quick before we dive in, here’s are the basics. Bad Blood is the third installment in the DC Batman Animated Movie continuity. It’s an original continuity for these movies that’s outside the DC Batman adaptation like Batman: Year One or Batman: The Dark Knight Parts I and II. These movies started with Batman and Son, followed up by Batman vs Robin. Much of the storyline for all three of these movies so far has borrowed from Grant Morrison and Scott Snyder’s Batman tales. In this installment, without getting all spoilery, Batman is in trouble and needs the help of Nightwing, Robin, Batwoman and Batwing to get through his toughest challenge yet.  For more details, check out the trailer.

Supernatural Figures Are Here (sort of)!

I swear the collectible higher-ups listen to my conversations, because I was literally talking about Supernatural merchandise yesterday, and its surprising lack of figures. There are the Funko POPs! and mini-blind bags, but they're not the same. 

Enter Entertainment Earth.

New Yummies from Yummy World by Kidrobot!

Yummy World is by far the very best line from Kidrobot.  Don't get me wrong; I love all their other stuff too.  However, Yummy World just gets me and I gets Yummy World.  So when I opened my email at my job and saw this, I might have squealed out loud.  Like, turned-heads-from-my-non-geeky coworkers loud.

Yummy World is bringing back their XL plushies and they are starting with the classic characters!  Check out these pics after the break.

2016 Comic Reading Challenge!

Here I was, perusing Facebook as I like to do, when I stumbled upon a page promoting a 2016 Reading Challenge.  The monthly list of book requirements caught my eye.  I love the guidelines for book options, and frankly think it would be a great graphic novel reading challenge.

While I probably don't need to add more reading to my to-do list, I can't help myself.  The best part is I'm bringing you all with me!
