Top 10 Animated Show Opens of All Time

Cartoons are awesome, and a big part of cartoons is that show open. Superman flies around, cheetara beats up some mutants and Ash tries to catch some pokemans, all while some rockin’ music plays. This is not a list of ‘the greatest animated shows’ just the greatest opening sequences! What follows is a list of animated show intros, each more awesome than the last.

TOP TEN: Surprise Guest Voices on Phineas and Ferb

Hey! What’cha doin’? It’s that time of the week where go link baiting for eyeballs and click-throughs in an attempt to get more of you to visit the website. Today, it’s another round of guest stars lending their voices to animated television shows. If you haven’t seen Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb, you are missing out on one of the best produced, best written, best scored, best use of continuity in a series, and really any other category you can think of show. It’s that good. There isn’t a day that goes by that my son and I aren’t rolling…

TOP TEN: Reasons I’m Glad I’m Not At SDCC ’11

Or – “I Didn’t Want Those  Stoopid Grapes, Anyway!” During a recent issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast, Stephen, Rodrigo and myself had a discussion about big comic conventions and the pros and cons (heh) of attending.  The conversation turned to my thoughts on the sheer enormousness of San Diego Comicon, and the conclusion that it is probably not for me.  Shall I list the reasons why? Well, I don’t see whyyyyyyyy…  NOT.

TOP TEN: Worst Costume Redesigns

Recently, DC Comics announced they would be “relaunching” their entire line of comics, with new number ones. Along with these new number ones, will be a line-wide redesign for every character. Many of these redesigns have already been criticized, so instead of hating on a bunch of costumes from comic books that haven’t even been published yet, I will be taking a stroll down memory lane, in the hopes of digging up redesigns that should never be forgotten. Join me, will you?

TOP TEN: Sequels That Hold Their Own

But there are times where the sequels live up to what has come before, or even surpass it on some occasions. Take the jump and see which movies made the cut, and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo sadly didn’t.

TOP TEN: Under-Appreciated Team Leaders

Or – “Why The Best Leaders Aren’t Always Obvious…” I’m a firm believer that it’s never a good idea to try and fully apply real world thought processes to the adventures of our four-color imaginary friends.  (Faithful Spoilerites who pay attention will note that I break virtually all of my rules anyway, on a shockingly regular basis.)  Recent noise out of Marvel Comics seems to indicate that a coming storyline will deal with a split in ranks the X-Men, leading to two factions, one of which will be led by Wolverine.  The ridiculousness of Wolverine leading anything brought me to…

Major Spoilers Top Eight: Spider-Man’s Women

As both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, his friends and family have always shaped Marvel’s most perennially popular protagonist. Many of Spider-Man’s greatest adventures have been infused with the additional drama directly derived from the presence of his loved ones. Some have been held captive by super villains, turned into were-creatures, beaten up, hospitalized, crippled, traumatized for life, turned into criminals, had their marriages dissolved and some have even made the ultimate sacrifice. No, not appearing in a Spidey book written by Todd McFarlane. I’m talking death, folks. Well, as dead as one can be in the today’s comic book marketplace.…

Seven Suggestions to Stimulate Digital Comic Growth

Just over a year ago, Steve Jobs got up on stage and presented to the world the iPad. From the moment it was unveiled, I knew the way we consume comic books would be changed forever.

But as we approach the one year anniversary, it’s time to look ahead at ways the industry can attract more readers to the digital format and enhance the reading experience for those already on board.
