Thoughts on Ghostbusters 3

Written by Andrew Cosby and Michael Alan Nelson
Drawn by Ayhan Hayrula

Toshiro Ono has spent his life making the best swords that have ever been forged and selling them to the highest bidder. But when his family is killed by a blade of his own making… Toshiro will do whatever it takes to make sure none of his swords ever kill again. Andrew Cosby, creator of EUREKA, and Michael Alan Nelson, creator of HEXED, brings feudal Samurai Japan to life like no other comic has done before.

As a new Batman rises on the streets of Gotham City, the heroes, villains and citizens take notice. How will the police feel about this new Batman, and can he control the crime in Gotham the way the old Batman did?

This week, we’re bringing it back ot robot on robot action by asking you to decide between the two beloved robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000. It’s kind of like asking you to choose between your two favorite children, but if you had to choose only one, would you pick Tom, or Crow?

Get over to the Major Spoilers Website and vote.

Tintin: Cigars of the Paraoh
Tintin and his dog Snowy are on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea when they meet Dr Sarcophagus, an Egyptologist who owns a papyrus that he believes will lead him to the undiscovered tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh (a pun on kiosk, a newspaper stand). He invites Tintin to accompany him. Tintin also has an unpleasant encounter with Roberto Rastapopoulos, a wealthy businessman.

    yes yes yes! MST3K podcast! i agree (under matthew’s verbally binding contract deal) to buy at least one bear shirt if you do a whole MST3K podcast, Joel or no Joel. this podcast must be at least ten minutes long and include all 3 major spoilerites. also, if i buy a shirt before the podcast happens, you are bound to produce said podcast within 3 months after the purchase. don’t try to trick me by shipping it late. love the podcasts. i’d love them more if there were more mst3k.

    Red Dawn was the first theatrically released PG-13 Movie, Ghostbusters was rated PG, as was Gremlins. Concerns over the gore and violence of both Gremlins and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were used as rationales for the implementation of the PG-13 rating.
