New “Thundercats” Animated Series Slated for 2011

with 4 comments

via aintitcoolnews.

Archie Comics: It was only a matter of time…

with one comment

According to AintItCoolNews, Archie Comics is announcing its first openly gay character, Kevin. Wasn’t the Archie comic book series supposed to end? Wasn’t there a series where Archie was supposed to marry either Betty or Veronica? Haha. Interestingly enough, the Archie comic book series is one of the most popular comic book publications in India. I wonder how they’ll react to this. See the press release below:

New trailer for the “Last Airbender” movie… aka Avatar: The Last Airbender. This has no relation to the James Cameron movie – it is based on the Nick TV show and is directed by M. Knight Shyamalan. This movie is looking pretty cool so far.
