Pop Artifacts! More Flintstones push puppets

Vintage Marvel Comics house ad

Pop Culture Roundup Jan. 5, 2007

Sharity: WFMU has MP3s of the rare Velvet Underground tracks that surfaced on a one-of-a-kind acetate that recently sold for a zillion dollars on e-Bay.

----------------------

From Bedazzled: James Brown on "Soul Train."

----------------------

The must-read comics history 'zine Alter Ego has an in-depth feature on the famed "Monter Society of Evil" storyline, which ran for 20 issues of Captain Marvel Adventures in the 1940s. You can see an excerpt here and read the whole thing in Alter Ego #64, which you can order here.

I agree with Alter Ego publisher Roy Thomas that DC Comics should publish a book collecting the entire storyline, a move that especially would make sense with cartoonist Jeff (Bone) Smith's new "Monster Society of Evil" mini-series set to debut soon.

-----------------------

Netflix is offering members an exclusive disk that bringers viewers up to speed on NBC's "Heroes" series.

This exclusive season-to-date recap of the hit NBC drama "Heroes" -- which follows a group of ordinary people who discover they have extraordinary abilities -- might help you answer any lingering questions before the show's return to the airwaves on Jan. 22. Can a young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia) really fly? Is an artist (Santiago Cabrera) truly painting the future? And what force is working to unite them with gifted people from all over the world? The pilot episode of NBC's "The Black Donnellys" is also included.

Netflix members can add the disk to their que now and it'll be delivered beginning Jan. 9.

From Silver Age Comics: Clark Kent and Lois Lane compete on "Survivor"?

DVD: Naked City Criterion Edition

This classic, shot-on-location noir is due out March 20 in one of Criterion's spruced up, expanded editions . It's available for pre-order now from Amazon.

Master noir craftsman Jules Dassin and newspaperman-cum-producer Mark Hellinger’s dazzling police procedural was shot entirely on location in New York City, as influenced by Italian neorealism as American crime fiction. A double Academy Award winner, The Naked City remains a benchmark for naturalism in noir, living and breathing in the promises and perils of the Big Apple, from its lowest depths to its highest skyscrapers.


Extras:

* Audio commentary by screenwriter Malvin Wald
* An analysis of the film’s New York locations by Celluloid Skyline author James Sanders
* A new video interview with NYU film professor Dana Polan
* Footage of Jules Dassin from his 2003 appearance at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Pop Artifact! Fred Flinstone and dinosaur wind-up

Vintage Marvel Comics house ad

Pop Culture Roundup Jan. 4, 2007

Ever wonder where Hawkman and Hawkgirl keep their costumes? Probably, not. But Booksteve found out.

------------------

Dark Horse Comics has set up a special page to highlight its upcoming "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series, which picks up where the TV series left off. Buffy creator Joss Whedon will handle some of the scripts, including the first arc. Some details:

Great stuff. New character insights. Hilarious nods to continuity. Expert pacing, and an unhurried reveal of characters: only three of the principles, including Buffy, in those first twenty-two pages.

Great pics from the Beatles' marathon "Mad Day Out" photo shoot from 1968.

Lady, That's My Skull directs us to some great new art by Joe Kubert for the U.S. Army tech publication Preventive Maintenance Monthly, which shows soldiers how to keep equipment in working order. Cartoonist Will Eisner pioneered the publication decades ago and Kubert has been doing it for some time.

---------------------

Comics scribe Len Wein finally gets a little credit for co-creating X-Men characters Wolverine, Storm and Colossus. Still no money, though.
