Genre(s): Action, Adventure, War
Publisher: Dreamwave Productions
Writer: John Ney Rieber
Artist: Jae Lee

This is the comic that got my into Jae Lee's awesome art-style. Same way Transformers Animated got me into Derrick J. Wyatt's art. So to mark this occasion I will re-read each issue in
(10 Years)The Dark Knight vs Marvel Studios
I was just wondering...
WHY DIDN'T DC...do anything special for The Dark Knight 10 year anniversary on YouTube. Like how Marvel celebrated their 10 years of existence. The MCU is superior in terms of cinematic scope and scale but the Dark Knight reigns supreme in terms of story and subtly. The Dark Knight is right up their for DC with Logan (2017) for Marvel. Even though Logan had the weaker villain.
At-least Marvel made YouTube videos celebrating the MCU's ten years and when they did it, it was done in a way that nobody could ignore. Now I know they are releasing The Dark Knight in threats in America but, come on, DC Comics and Warner Brothers. You celebrated 80 years of Superman but not 10 years of their best (Christoper Nolan directed, Oscar winning) movie. Unless I missed a DC video from comic con celebrating the Dark Knight in my subscription feed. That's kinda sad DC, really sad.
Now what I will be doing is submit a
If BEE 2018 fails, I am GIVING UP ON TRANSFORMERS!JMK here,
I recently made a playlist on YouTube.
I binged through the whole list from 15:50:55HRS to midnight straight (8 hours 9 minutes 5 seconds).
It started with Optimus Prime...
...and ended with Optimus Prime.
Within it contained videos discussing the following:
The fate of Action Cartoons
The fate of the DCEU!
The fate of the Transformers franchise as whole
This was a playlist that I constructed to help me purge some memories and feelings from the past. I find it kinda therapeutic. But to fully engage in the new half of the year I need to get this off my chest.
My history with animation and Transformers
When I was a kid, I loved animated TV shows and movies. I was never really into anything Disney related outside of their animated movies, even their shi
My Solo: A Star Wars Story experienceJMK Here,
Yesterday, I watched the latest Star Wars movie (Solo) in theatres and here is basically my experience watching it.
Opening credits: Nice change to the formula.
Title sequence: Nice.
World War 1-esque scene: This is the Star Wars we all came to see
Han getting his name:
Han meeting Chewie: Muddy cage fight!
Train scene: First Avenger did it better!
Kessel run scene: The first Star Wars movie to ever put me to sleep!
Scenes with Han: Why did they cast him again!
Scenes with Lando
Thought and feelings on Bumblebee Trailer 2018JMK here,
As much as I got my trust raped by Hasbro for the past 10 years (Transformers 1-5) I have to say:
This trailer looks awesome.
Good choice of soundtrack!Big mac callback from the 2007 movie.The G1 aesthetic is back baby!
Bee is finally cute looking.Starscream is finally done right (visually).Director of Kubo and the 2 Strings, Travis Knight.
Every trailer from the Micheal Bay verse all looked and sounded cool. The actual movies, the exact opposite.
Minimal Transformer activity.Still produced by Bay (TMNT 2014 and Out of the Shadows 2016). Yet Snyder was a producer on Wonder Woman (the Third Act).Movie has to be bound by Micheal Bay's rules, same way as Wonder Woman was bound by Zack Snyder (again the Third Act).Same Writer behind Shut in (2016) and Unforgettable (2017), Christina Hodson.Competing with 2 Disney films in December, Aqua-man and an animated Spider-man staring African Latino Miles Morales (Post-Black Panther Era).Batman v Superman criti
My DEADPOOL 2 ExperienceJMK here,
And man was this movie good! Better than good it was a once in a lifetime moment for me and the few people in the theatre. Now I will not review this movie nor give away any spoilers (by mistake) but I will tell you about the one thing that made this experience extra Marvel.
SO Before Deadpool 2 could play, the projector accidentally played Infinity War. It was only playing the opening part on board Thor's ship then they rectified it by finally playing Deadpool 2. I guess that Deadpool dream I had lead me to Sarit Centre (that local mall in my dream) for more reasons than one.
Best Marvel movie experience, second best Marvel movie experience I had in my life this year.
Seriously, Black Panther, Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Marvel is on a roll this year. Don't fuck it up now, Marvel. (Venom 2018, I am looking in your direction).
So how did your Deadpool experience go?
My Deadpool dream
Now that everyone is going out to see Deadpool in theatres, I just wanna share a dream I had about the Merc with a mouth.
So I just got done watching the film, as I exited my local mall I came face to face with Reynolds himself signing autographs in his suit, testicle skin and everything.
Me: Hi Ryan Reynolds.
Reynolds: Hey kid
Me: I just saw your movie. Wasn't quite what I expected it to be. (Early est screenings for DP 2 were considered negative)
Reynolds: Good for you.
Okay so I don't exactly remember how the conversation went but, that dream was a sign. That I should go see Deadpool here at home. And I will. Just wanted to get this out before it hits theatres here in Kenya.
Thanks for reading
My Little Pony: The Movie REVIEWJMK here,
with my second animated movie review of my first
2D theatrical movie experience. I am not gonna go in depth with this movie as I did the other movie, because unlike that movie, this franchise is has heart and I am a casual brony.
So here are my pros and cons abut the movie.
Sticks to the formula of the TV series
Awesome world building
Great new characters and designs
Zoe Saldana is cast as an outlaw, again.
Only one Hippogryph. Kinda lame.
Fluttershy and Applejack didn't recruit any friends
Movie needed more Fluttershy
Celestia stole Twilight's spot in the end credits
The storm king was less impressive than other villains who are less impressive than Discord.
DEBATE: Was Liev Schreiber a better villain here than in X-Men origins?
Usually great films are left
PPG-The Fourth Powerpuff Girl and C.N. rebootsJMK here,
Recently, I just got wind of Cartoon Network's latest 'publicity stunt': (link)
And at first I thought it was gonna be:
But instead in reality, all we got it is this:
(Not that the people leaking this info cared about the show. I guess they just want to hammer this show down as much as they can.)
And before I get into my thoughts on this latest animated 'WTF' fest, its time I gave my honest opinions on Cartoon Networks latest reboots.
On Cartoon Network's reboots
NB: There are two kinds of show that are in my mindset:
A deep show that I take seriously and

Culdee Fell Engine and Coach AssignmentsYes, I'll be bringing the Culdee Fell Railway into STMY from Season 3, and I've got a couple of stories planned out featuring them. But in order to do so, I've had to come up with some names. Engines 1-8 are named in the Railway Series, as well as Culdee's coach, Catherine. As such, I've had to come up with the others. Here's what I've come up with:
#1 Godred & Matilda (originally - Matilda was reassigned)

#4 Culdee & Catherine
#5 Shane Dooiney & Nancy
#6 Lord Harry/Patrick & Matilda
