Posted by | Comic Books, Television | 8 Comments

via aintitcoolnews. Looks like everything is coming full circle… I don’t know if it’s just because I’m older… but the cartoons these days pale in comparison to the ones we grew up with (Transformers, G.I. Joe, Voltron, Thundercats, etc). There are some exceptions: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Iron Man: The Animated Series, etc. I’m glad they are reviving the older shows. Anyways, Warner Bros Animation will be launching a new Thundercats TV series on the Cartoon Network in 2011. Check out the full press release after the break.

iPad?! The Marvel iPad app looks great!

Posted by | Comic Books | No Comments

So, as an avid comic book reader for years… I almost feel compelled to pick up Apple’s new iPad. In addition to it’s other   functions, I’m very interested in the Marvel Reader that was developed for it. I love the idea of using an e-reader to keep up with my favorite titles. Now, if only DC came out with an app…

At any rate, I might wait until my buddy Jeff gets his before I get one. Some people have recommended buying the second generation hardware, so we’ll see. I own a Macbook Pro as well as an iPhone, so… it might be time.

Check out all the new Marvel titles available for the iPad after the jump.
