Something For The Weekend: Your Weekly Ten-To-Takeaway

by Olly MacNamee

Well, another weekend has rolled around and we hope we can offer you a brief respite from anything stressful you may be doing with our weekly ten-to-takeaway of some fo the more popular posts from the past week. New, previews and more from the comic book industry and beyond…

  1. We start with a few regular columns that always please me when I see them make this list, starting with last weekend’s Review Round Up here.
  2. Ben Martin’s Franchise Explosion (Or Implosion) is the next one to hit this week’s list. Last weekend he took a look back at Casino Royale, the first Bond film featuring Daniel Craig in the starring role. Check it out here.
  3. Richard Bruton’s in-depth preview of 2000 AD was another winner. Last week he previewed the newest jump-on issue, 2000 AD Prog #2250 here.
  4. We hosted the latest instalment of Critiquing Comics podcast this past week too. Listen in on it here.
  5. The last regular column we give you is Brendan M Allen’s Jumping On, looking at all the new debut comics and new story arcs here.
  6. On the previews front we brought you more extended reviews from Dynamite Comics. You can read up on our Vampirella #24 extended preview here.
  7. Then, you can check out our extended preview for Barbarella #3 here too.
  8. On the news front, Dark Horse Comics announced all-new horror title, Daisy, here.
  9. The return of Locke & Key to Netflix was big news as reported on by Erik Amaya. He took a look at all the upcoming new shows and films coming to the streaming service here.
  10. Rachel Bellwoar reviewed the classic Mary Tyler Moore double bill Thoroughly Modern Millie And What’s So Bad About Feeling Good? here.

Okay, that’s it for another Saturday, but before I go I’ll leave you with another little something extra. Disney + released the Star Wars anime Visions Season One this past week, so I thought it appropriate to revisit the classic TIE-Fighter anime by OTAKING77077/ Paul Johnson. Enjoy and may the Force be with you…
