I got one of the comics
info on issue 3 of Dalgoda

"Synopsis: Dalgoda has been sent to Earth
from his home planet, Caninda . with a unique
technological secret - the sub space driver.
By sharing this secret with the Earth.
Dalgoda hopes to enlist Earth's aid in defending Canida
against the murderous Nimp.

He is meeting with difficulties."

I just bought this comic too

somehow that reeks of crappy fanfiction plot to my mind. but i...guess it could work...maybe. maybe it's because the names sound ridiculous.

It's a 80's comic that had two series
Series one had 8 comics the other had 4.
yeah it's kinda silly but at the same time being serious.

It's kinda interesting
as it's about a race of alien dog people and humans getting "along"
for a up coming war from another alien race that are bigger
with better technology, as they got 36 months?
to prepare for their arrival for war.

It isn't a comic for kids either
as theres cursing , xenophobic racist tones, sexual tones, dark tones
and some death and low gore.


was browsing around on tv earlier and it looks like disney has started a new Duck Tales series. not sure how i feel about it as it seems like it might be a reboot or something starting the whole series from the beginning.

different art style, different voices and characters in some cases. seems a bit too different for me but i guess those who never got to see the original series might like it.

the first episode has them going after the lost city of atlantis which is entirely different from how the original series began. the title theme seems largely the same though i think they could've done without all the sound effects as it draws away from the music.

overall, not a bad idea but i think i'd rather rewatch the original series whenever i get around to it. it's clear the 2 series are from different time periods and that'll likely affect who wants to see which version.

I heard the (typo lol) Dick Tales new series are in the same universe of
Darkwing Duck and Talespin
and not the classic ones.

What I heard
The new Duck tales reference them
like they exist in their world
then just a easteregg,
and that would be neat idea
having all 3 universe together.

Yeah the new show looks ok
it be hard to get the old voice actors as some of are gone now
just picture as it's own thing then just being a straight copy
as the original show

could be worst, like a continue series with a huge difference.
kinda like Biker Mice from Mars 2006-08 version, I heard orignal fans didn't like that one much
It's like a soft reboot plus and a continue series, it was kinda odd.
I like the character designs but art style could been better.

oh this game looks odd and bad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kzkV5MvOIc


Body break (wiki )

Basically, government-funded health commercials. Dorky, dated, and well-meaning, they could strike on any channel at any time and always starkly contrast with the programming and commercials sandwiching them. For those reasons, Body Break endures in the collective Canadian memory. Almost 30 years later and it's still going.

It seems Netflix requisitioned the concept and original hosts in an interesting spoof.

Dick Tales

lol

I thought this LoL parody of the DuckTales opening was pretty great, even though I couldn't say if the LoL references were on point. The DuckTales movie was one of my favorites.

Speaking of movies I liked as a kid, I think the Gumby movie was the first movie I ever saw? Or at least my first VHS or something like that. Was Gumby in fact obscure? I couldn't have known. I also had a little rubber Gumby action figure thingy.


well, i finally got that chakan book i ordered. not very big but still good. 16 page comic book (with that hard kind of paper that doesn't bend very easily), and a smaller picture of the cover art that looks like it'd fit nicely in a frame. and all signed too.

this one is The Warriors Genesis. if you've ever played the sega genesis game then you know how chakan fought death to gain immortality. well, this went into a bit more detail and had more on the backstory of chakan's history before that fight.

i'd say it was worth the $14.

yeah with comic like that hopefully it wasn't that pricey
But I can see rare obscure good comics goes for 50 to 1000 bucks easy
because it's a good comic or just collectors item

not bad, just $13.99 iirc and just as advertised, signed by RAK. both the comic and smaller pic.

i put it all back in the plastic and stuff then put it in my bottom dresser drawer after i finished reading it. bout the safest place for it i figured since that's also where i keep all my video game instruction manuals and stuff and they're all fine.

darn drawer weighs a ton as a result though. that dresser ain't falling over for nothing.

Well that's good then
you might need another drawer
hope the weight limit doesn't break,
well not soon any way.

Ever heard of Beast Wars?
kinda like one of the first CG television animated series
man I liked that show even tho i'm not a transformer fan
kinda wish they remaster/remake that show.

i don't remember much of it but i know i saw a good bit of the show when it was on tv. don't think the video game adaptation did very well but what i vaguely remember of it, the show was decent. well, at least for its time.

kinda hard to judge an old cartoon (especially CG and 3d) after seeing so many other far better made ones over the years. i mean, i rewatched the original power rangers movie a while back and while decent, the 3d models all had that problem where the lighting gives the reflective surfaces those dreaded unnatural looking reflections. the same problem you often see with eyes in high quality character models.

and now they're making (or is it already out now?) transformers: the last knight movie. so maybe they'll make a transformers cartoon series with that as the theme.

beast wars... i bet the production value for that series was pretty expensive at the time since 3d and CG animation was still pretty new even in the late 90's.

I remember that show. It would air in the mornings with Monster Rancher and Starship Troopers: Roughneck Chronicles on the WB in my region. Then they moved the second season over to Fox Kids Saturday morning block.

It's was a pretty good show
I think it needs to be remastered tho as the cg is kinda dated
but the story telling was pretty good
as for the cgi yeah it's... good for it's design but needs to be remastered.

And yes the video games were awful
I think the n64 port was the worst as it was a blockbuster exclusive and way different then the ps1 version, but alot of licence games were kinda like that.
Good shows with awful video games.

I think that movie been out for a while and people don't like it... finally XD

Yeah it could been, but now a-days 3d cartoons shows have pretty good cg budgets
near Madagascar 1 and Monsters, Inc 1 quality.

Yeah I watch it every time
I wasn't a big transformers fan, but beast wars got me into
then Beast Machines came along that was kinda forgettable
but they did had a few good beast designs like the Wolf "Noble"
but I hated Rattrap design in that show... his feet wheels.

Yup I know that I was a Reboot fan too
was disappointed when it end with a cliff hanger and never continue...
and more disappointed when Reboot is gonna have a reboot with live action actors?


o_O boy, some of the older of these looney toon cartoons they still air on boomerang sure are showing their age these days.

i've seen a number of them where the warner bros. logo, and in some cases the whole cartoon, have started looking mighty fuzzy with the colors starting to get messed up somewhat or the brightness might be off on the intro/outro scenes like said warner bros. logo.

it's nice that they still air them of course but it leaves me wondering how much longer these old cartoons have left before time simply runs its course with them.

though i am starting to get tired of seeing tom & jerry so much. :/ beats most adult swims shows though.

edit: also, it seems Dish Network now has 2 reasons for why the hopper/joey boxes might randomly stop working for a while.

1. lost signal

2. lost broadband internet connection

yeah...apparently you need an internet connection to watch tv now which i can only assume is due to it having access to things like netflix.

I hope you are not implying that DIGITIZED archived cartoons are steadily losing image quality...

It's more of a comparison thing. It's kinda like how video games that were considered realistic 20 years ago don't look realistic now. They only looked realistic back then because they were more realistic than anything else available at the time, and less realistic than what's available now. Their appearance didn't change, our expectations did.

When it comes to cartoons, pretty much anything hand-drawn is going to look inferior to something created entirely in CG. Compare The 5th season of The Simpsons with the 21st, or the 1st season of Pokémon with the 12th, or the 1st season of Dragon Ball Z with the 6th. You'll see a noticeable difference in graphic quality.

I kind of feel like Quake 1 still looks kind of good today, despite it now looking like Quake 64 compared to Quake Champions, and I also strangely prefer the hand drawn Simpsons over the newer digitally drawn seasons.

I remember how all of those controversial (the censored eleven cartoons were never really re-released I think, since it'd be impossible to release these cartoons these days) cartoons had messages that told viewers that these cartoons were products of their time.
