Is Wrestlemania Mystery 2 In Trouble?

wrestlemaniamystery_bluray

As you probably heard by now, Hulk Hogan was fired by the WWE for certain “racist comments” he made{which I won’t post here, but you can easily find if you want}.. WWE has been erasing all mention of Hogan from their website, even going as far as editing him out of an upcoming movie. Which leads to the question: what is happening with Wrestlemania Mystery 2? The original announcement was deleted from WWE’s website and Hogan’s announcement video was made private. Depending on how far along they are in production and and how big a role he has, they could simply edit him out. But it’s also a possibility they could scrap the whole thing and start from scratch. What do you guys think will happen to the movie? Is there anyone you would like to see replace him?

Retro Comic Review: “Scooby-Doo: Surf’s Up! Part 2”

Scooby-Doo: Surf’s Up! Recap/Review Part 2
Revenge, Inc.

5 villians from the past come together with the sole purpose of destroying Mystery Inc!

RecapReview_1

Artwork by Joe Staton again, the first 5 stories in this volume are his so apologies if I get a wee bit repetitive.

I don’t think I have anything new to say about his art or his style as a whole, but being story specific, I do have one or two issues. The very first panel shows 5 villains, and their “costume” alter egos, from Mystery Inc’s past. Now, the “costumes” all appear to be original WAY monsters but none of these people were the wearers of those costume on that show.
A missed opportunity that would have been a nice nod for sure, small nit picky gripe.

Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Is Getting an Digital HD Release

ScrappyDooHD

Warner Bros has released five clips to promote the upcoming release of Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Season 1. The most interesting bit about these clips, however, is the end card promoting a Digital HD release.

Scooby and Scrappy-Doo has been available digitally for quite some time, but the only classic Scooby series to have an HD version was 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. It’s unlikely later seasons will get the HD treatment unless those get DVD releases later on.

Retro Comic Review: “Scooby-Doo Surf’s Up!” Part 1

Vol5_SurfsUp_cover

This is the first of a ten-part semi-regular series looking back at some of the old Scooby comic stories. I’ll be going through Scooby-Doo: Surf’s Up! which is the fifth volume that reprints the comics from the original DC run.
This volume collects issues 21-25, without the original cover art, of that run.
Now lets get to it.

Revenge Of The Mudman Starring Scooby-Doo
Artwork by Joe Stanton.

Vol5_SurfsUp_1

I’ve always had a strange love-hate relationship with Joe Stanton’s art on this book, even from the beginning when I first read the Spring-Heeled Jack story (the first Scooby comic I remember reading, which if all goes well I’ll be reviewing in volume 6.). He draws Freddie with a chin so big that Jay Leno and Bruce Campbell are envious, Shaggy usually had a ball shaped nose, Daphne’s lips are so big and red it looks like she was in a kissing contest and her partner was a vacuum, and his Velma comes off kind of dowdy, almost a complete after thought.
Having said that, I love it, and not just for nostalgias sake…though admittedly I think that plays a small part. You’ve got to understand, I was like 8 or 9 when I first started reading this comic, which was also the time when the only new Scooby we got was 1 DTV (still in their infancy at this point) and 1 or 2 Gelsey books a year

Scooby-Doo! Team Up #7 Review

TeamUp7

Plot: The Scooby Gang is sent back in time to the stone age by Professor Einstone’s time machine. While the professor looks for a way to send Mystery Inc home, they are invited by The Flintstones and The Rubbles to the opera. But shortly after arriving, they are attacked by The Phantom of the Operock. Everyone runs, but the villain is easily thwarted thanks to a little help from Bam-Bam. Fred uses Gazoo to send Scooby & his pals home, but they wind up in the far future.

TeamUp7_1

I really enjoyed this issue. Hanna-Barbera characters rarely ever get used these days outside of Scooby, so it’s nice to see them branching out a little. I also really liked the time travel aspect of this issue. Though it does leave me wondering, is it even possible to pull someone from the future like that? Wouldn’t you be the one doing the time traveling? Despite that, I feel like it makes perfect sense in the context of the story. It very much reminds me of the Flintstones/Jetsons crossover over from the 80’s.
