Now amongst my other varied and sundry interests (and more of them in a forthcoming post), I have a soft spot for the old Jem cartoon (Which I now realise is almost 30 years old)... or more particularly for a couple of the aspects of the cartoon.

For those too young to remember Jem, it was the (and I say this now to avoid accidentally stumbling upon the term later on) "Truly Outrageous" story of Jerrica Benton, CEO of Starlight Records, who moonlighted as up and coming rock star Jem (With her little sister and friends making the group "Jem and the Holograms".

At any rate... there's a live action movie out next year (Which based on word of mouth is a little more low key and doesn't even include rival band The Misfits by most accounts), and in advance of that IDW have a new comic, and... it's not quite what I was expecting in terms of style....

and I LOVE that it's not what I was expecting. )

Well, following the... let's be polite and say the furore (It's a good word, it should be used more often) over the Manara Spider-Woman cover, it's perhaps a little odd that I should be posting an interesting image of Spider woman wearing a rather visible looking, old-fashioned corset... OVER her costume...

But fret not, in this case I'm not talking about Spider-Woman... I'm talking about Lady Spider

the Steampunk Spider-Woman! )

But the other half thinks it's gorgeous!

We've seen some odd sequels over the past few years, perhaps most notably someone else writing "Peanuts" comics, but even that pales next to the chutzpah it takes to relaunch the classic, groundbreaking, 114 year old. "Little Nemo in Slumberland"



But darn me if this isn't a lovely looking take on it )

The preview for Scooby-Doo Team-Up #5 is up at 13th Dimension

This consistently excellent series (and all praise to Sholly Fisch for managing that little miracle) has opted NOT to go the Batman and/or Robin route this time, and feature a team-up that is just wonderful. Well, look for yourself...

As a Scot, I do feel that whilst we have a few creators (Grant Morrison, Alan Grant, other people not called Grant at all) and a few characters (Wolfsbane, Mirror Master 2.0 and um.... I'm sure a few others) we don't get many stories set in Scotland itself (Muri Island based stories to one side, they rarely did anything with the locale)



John Lees and Iain Laurie look set to deal with that with...
