Blaine: This motion comic is based on the second story arc from Joss Whedon’s run. I personally find these “after the fact” motion comics difficult to watch. I really enjoyed the “Avengers vs. X-Men #1 Infinite” digital comic with Nova this week: that’s the direction I hope digital comics take.
Justice League: Doom
The Spiral Staircase
Thou Shalt Not Kill… Except
An early collaboration between Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi, Bruce Campbell and others
The Gene Autry Show: Seasons Three and Four

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I have fond memories of Starman, but haven’t seen it since my youth, so I don’t know how well it has aged.” Alex says, “Aside from the Edge box set, there really isn’t anything that catches my attention this week.”

  1. Some interesting glimpses of television past, but not necessarily stuff that will find as big an audience today. The original Dark Shadows had a tone and pace that might not appeal to today’s fans of supernatural drama, but it was revolutionary in its own time. Adam 12 is a piece of a time and place, and the Doctor Who eps, of course, have a different feel from the current incarnation of the show.

    How does anyone here feel about One Tree Hilll? I never saw it, but it had a huge following.
