Someone is WRONG on the INTERNET

This post is wrong, wrong, wrong.  As noted on Wikipedia,
"Unlike the Disney shorts, in which Oswald did not speak, Lantz's cartoons began to feature actual dialogue for Oswald, although most of the cartoons were still silent to begin with. Animator Bill Nolan did the voice of Oswald in Cold Turkey, the first Lantz cartoon with dialogue, and the following year Pinto Colvig, who was working as an animator and gag man at the studio, started voicing Oswald. When Colvig left the studio in 1931, Mickey Rooney took over the voicing of Oswald until early in the following year. Starting in 1932, Lantz ceased to use a regular voice actor for Oswald, and many studio staff members (including Lantz himself) would take turns in voicing the character over the years. June Foray provided Oswald's voice in The Egg Cracker Suite, which was the final theatrical short to feature the character."

Really Marvel?

$7.99?  You guys are killing me.

Just a thought.

When I am a head honcho at Disney, the first thing I'm going to do is commission  a Jaxxon miniseries at Marvel to be written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Steve Sanders. Think about it:
It's a no-brainer, right?  I don't know why nobody ever listens to my ideas.

Captain Courageous

In case you're on the fence about supporting the Captain Kentucky/ Pertwillaby Papers preorder campaign, here's a brief sample of what's in store.

From The Comic Reader #204, here are four Captain Kentucky strips by Keno Don Rosa, 1982.  Enjoy!

We interrupt this blog for a special announcement.

Hey, remember like three years ago when I did this post on Don Rosa's The Pertwillaby Papers?  Of course you do.  Well I am pleased to announce that someone finally listened to reason and is attempting to put these great comics out in a nice, fancy-pants edition.

For information about the fundraising/ preorder campaign for Don Rosa's The Pertwillaby Papers and Captain Kentucky, click here.

Freedom! Yeah!

Some lessons learned from this year's Free Comic Book Day:

1.  Anyone who complains about a lack of comics for kids is full of it.  Donald Duck, The Simpsons, Sponge Bob, Adventure Time, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barnaby and Mr. O'Malley, Zombie Kid, Superman Family, Tinkerbell and the Disney Fairies, The Smurfs, and Moomin all had FCBD offerings this year.  Factor in all-ages material like Atomic Robo and Spider-Man, and that's a ton of comic books for young readers.

2.  I don't understand licensing.  Disney owns Marvel Comics, yet the Donald Duck book was put out by Fantagraphics,
Labrynth through Archaia Comics, and Tinkerbell by a company called Papercutz.  Is there any reason why Disney doesn't just put out all their comics material through Marvel?

3.  Marvel is kicking DC's ass.  Marvel offered two new Avengers comics that were accessible to new readers, with great art by John Romita Jr and Bryan Hitch and snappy Brian Bendis dialogue.  DC offered some muddled, ugly sampler that had something to do with parallel universes, or something?  If I were a twelve-year-old today DC wouldn't even register on my radar (although I'd probably be really into that Young Justice cartoon).

4.  Free comics are the best comics.  Free Comic Book Day is awesome.  If you missed out this year definitely hit up your local comic shop next May.

Oh yeah...

...this happened.  I have zero interest in the business end of things, but they'll take away my blogging license if I don't at least mention it.

I know you are but what am I?

E-Ticket Ride

Wikipedia says, "The phrase E ticket (or E ticket ride) refers to an unusually interesting, thrilling, or expensive experience. It derives from the admission ticket system used at the Disneyland and Magic Kingdom theme parks before 1982, where the E ticket (officially termed "E coupon") admitted the bearer to the newest, most advanced, and/or most popular rides and attractions."

So I say, thanks, Wikipedia, for explaining what the hell this song is supposed to mean:
