BATMAN 66 ARCHIE

Coming this Wednesday! DC and Archie Comics teamed up for a fun crossover between the Archie crew and Batman '66. We've seen many titles in the last couple of years that have partnered Adam West's TV Batman with great classic properties like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Green Hornet, and The Avengers. But this kind of genre-bending and playful fantasy has been a staple in Archie comics ever since the Silver-Age days when the Archie universe embraced the 1960s mania for monsters, spies, and superheroes. The Archie franchise got a major boost a few years back when the company reconnected with these fantasy roots by publishing the amazing titles Afterlife With Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (both highly recommended!). In the wake of these successful horror titles, the Archies have also met up with rock and roll heroes like KISS and The Ramones, and even the old R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. spy days are sneaking back into the main character books. And now fans can look forward to seeing 60-style Batman join the fun. From the press release: "Two iconic comic book characters meet up for the first time in this historic crossover mini-series! A battle in Gotham City extends its reach into Riverdale – with Mr. Lodge becoming enemy #1 of the dynamic duo! Now it’s up to Veronica to recruit some help and place a call… to the Batcave! On July 18th, join the titanic talents of co-writers Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci, artists Dan Parent and J. Bone, colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick, and letterer Jack Morelli and gear up for comic crossover fun in ARCHIE MEETS BATMAN ’66 #1!" Coming this week to your local comic shops. Great cover variants below. Enjoy! And please stay tuned for news about my upcoming book about Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey)- a whopping 420+ page celebration of his prolific career.

YELLOW SUBMARINE PRIME

Ahoy Mateys! The Beatles animated classic Yellow Submarine is now streaming on Amazon Prime. "Once upon a time... or maybe twice..." there was a film that wove Beatles music and mythology with 1960s psychedelic design into an imaginative, animated masterpiece called Yellow Submarine (1968). The movie centers around the Beatles, who travel in a yellow submarine to use music to save the people of Pepperland from the nasty Blue Meanies. One of my all-time favorite films, I even recorded a cassette from the TV as a kid so I could listen to my own audio version of the story. Animation fans might enjoy the contrast between the dark, photo-collage style of the Liverpool sequence, where the saga begins with Elenor Rigby, and the brilliantly surreal cel animation of the Fab's journey through exotic environments to Pepperland (see sample images below). The film recently set sail  into theaters for a special 50th anniversary event, and now fans can study it further via Amazon!


About the 50th screening event in theaters: "Picturehouse Entertainment are thrilled to announce the blues-banishing news that The Beatles’ legendary animated hit film YELLOW SUBMARINE is returning to cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 8 July 2018. An unmissable cinema event, this momentous big-screen revival will give generations of audiences the golden opportunity to revisit Pepperland for the 50th anniversary of the film’s original release. The visionary feature film designed by the great art director Heinz Edelmann can now be experienced in glorious surround sound with the groundbreaking animation presented in stunningly-remastered 4k. Looking and sounding better than ever before, join John, Paul, George and Ringo on the technicolour adventure of a lifetime. Illustrated with mind-bending moving images, YELLOW SUBMARINE tells the story of how The Beatles battle the music-hating Blue Meanies armed only with the power of love. From Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds to Nowhere Man, and Eleanor Rigby to All You Need Is Love, YELLOW SUBMARINE features some of the most-loved songs from the greatest band the world has ever known. An exuberant fusion of music, film and art, YELLOW SUBMARINE is a landmark cinematic experience that is as fun and vibrant as it was in 1968." Ticket and theater info will be posted on April 17th. Learn more about the film at the Yellow Submarine website. Enjoy!
