Something For The Weekend: Your Regular Round Up Of News, Interviews And More

by Olly MacNamee

It’s Saturday evening here in the UK, late Saturday afternoon on the East Coast and late-lunchtime on the West Coast, and once again we bring you ten-to-takeaway from the past week of news, previews and more. So, let’s get stuck in:

  1. At the start of the week we announced the promotion of Brendan M Allen to the position of News Desk Editor, and it’s good to see that good news is still in vogue.
  2. And, as our newest editorial addition, Brendan has been no slouch with his new regular column – Jumping On – coming in strong on its debut. Read it here, and every week! Another great edition to growing number of regular columns we curate here on
  3. And talking about regular columns, Brendan and good friend Tony Thornley brought us another New To You review, chewing the fat by looking back at All Star Superman here.
  4. Another winner of the week has to be writer Mark Russell. I got the chance to catch up with him once again to discuss Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 here 
  5. … and reviewed Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 here.
  6. But, that’s not all. The announcement of his new series from AWA Upshot – Not All Robots – also made it onto this week list too. Seems I’m not the only fan of Russell’s around these here parts. But then, you’re reading this, so you must have great taste, right?
  7. Another interview featured this week was Scott Redmond’s chat with BlackHand & IronHead creator, David López here.
  8. Meanwhile on the film and TV front, EiC Erik Amaya brought us news of two new DC Comics’ animated series coming to HBOMax; My Adventures with Superman and Batman: Caped Crusader. Read more here.
  9. And on the comic book front, he also informed readers of Gail Simone’s return to Red Sonja with a contribution to the forthcoming Red Sonja: Black, White, Red from Dynamite.
  10. Finally for this week, Erik also found the time to review the Blu-Ray release of Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 1 here.

Well, I say “finally,” but of course I do like to leave with that little bit of something extra. This week it’s blast from the past with a rewatch of Kevin Rubio’s classic COPS parody, Troopers. Still a great fan-man film after all these years!

Have a good one, everyone! And enjoy your weekend. Safely.
