Wonder Woman TV series planned

After all the talk about a movie (Joss Whedon even tried writing a script, but gave up) there's now discussion of a new Wonder Woman TV series.

If they do it, I hope it's not gonna be one of these superhero series that's afraid to be a superhero series like "Smallville."I think they should go for it, full out, costume, invisible airplane, Paradise Island and all. Camp it up a bit, but don't be overly silly. Make Wonder Woman a tough, smart heroine, but with a little humor, in the "Buffy" mold.

I'd love to see some real superhero series on the small screen. They've been doing well in the theaters lately. Why not give it a shot?

New blog looks at Jack Kirby art, day-by-day

Comics art historian Jon B. Cooke has launched a new blog at the Jack Kirby Museum, which features a new post on the King of Comics everyday. At least that's the plan. Given the depth of the subject, and the magnitude of Kirby's contributions, I don't think it'll be too tough generating posts though. Check it out!

New Hulu Plus service to air over Roku, Tivo

Hulu's new 10-buck-a-month service will be available via these boxes and other platforms starting next year. According to Variety:

More than programs from ABC, Fox and NBC, including "Modern Family," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Glee," join full series runs and back seasons of vintage shows including "The X-Files," "Saturday Night Live" and "Miami Vice."

Thundarr the Barbarian special edition DVD on the way

Mark Evanier says this series, which he worked on with mentor Jack Kirby, is due out soon as a Warner Archives special edition DVD.

I have fond memories of the series, which aired very late in my cartoon-watching years, mainly because of the Kirby character designs. As Mark says, you can order it here.
