It's time to Believe again
Back in March Fox officially confirmed that the cult classic ’90s sci-fi series The X-Files would be returning to TV with a special limited season and today we learn that the NEW season of The X-Files will return in January. Along with the news that Fox has decided to put American Idol out of its misery by canceling it after the next season, the network announces today that the 6-episode limited season of The X-Files will premiere on January 24 with a 2-hour season premiere episode. This is not a remake, folks. This isn’t necessarily a reboot either. This new season of The X-Files will star Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny and it is being helmed by the series creator … so, essentially, this is exactly what X-Files fans have been praying for come to life.

Action figures, books, TV specials, LEGO play sets and MORE!
After that unsavory business concerning the comments made by Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner earlier today, I’m ecstatic that I have some very positive comic book / superhero news to share right now. DC Comics has announced that the will unveil a line of products designed for female comic book fans. DC Super Hero Girls will be a line of products that will range from books to TV shows, movies to toys and everything in between. While there is no reason that any person of any gender can enjoy anything comic book-related, it’s refreshing to see that DC Comics has decided to gear a line of products specifically for the large portion of their fanbase that is all too often neglected and taken advantage of. Click below to learn more about this exciting new line of superhero stuff coming our way. More »

"No-one can replace Jon Stewart But ..."
Last month, Jon Stewart announced that he has decided to retire as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central and today we learn that South African comedian Trevor Noah has been selected as he successor as host. I can’t say that I’m at all familiar with Noah and his comic stylings but, for the most part, I’m hearing lots of very positive things about him. I guess my first reaction, over all, is how disappointed I am that in the whole world, they couldn’t find a woman to hire as the new host of The Daily Show but, apparently, there are more than enough men to host TV shows. But, I digress. Click below to read the official press release announcement from Comedy Central about Trevor Noah‘s hiring and learn more about the new host of The Daily Show. More »
"I accept your Mayor’s generous gift ... Join Cobra!"
Cobra Commander, the cartoony leader of the terrorist organization Cobra from the ’80s cartoon GI Joe, was presented with a key to the city of Springfield, IL by Mayor J. Michael Houston this week in celebration of the upcoming GI Joe Collectors’ Convention that will take place there next month. This fun little publicity stunt was meant to draw attention to the fact that this GI Joe convention will take place April 9-12 and I love it entirely. Having just watched the animated GI Joe: The Movie (1987) on the big screen just a few days ago, I am still on a GI Joe high so this little photo opp is really fun, I think. Click below to see the official photo of Mayor Houston presenting Cobra Commander with a key to his city and read the accompanying press release. More »
