New Madballs and Dusty Plastic HELL #7B!

Bruise Brother is back... and he's brought some new friends!

So I'd hoped to have this up sometime last week, but it's finally here: our review of the Madballs sticker set currently making the rounds at Target! Except it's not really a review of the stickers' stickability -- that would be painfully short -- but rather a close-up look and discussion of the new Madballs depicted on the adhesives. Yes, you read that right. New Madballs! And by that I mean new-new Madballs, as opposed to more or less obvious derivatives of old school balls. Yay!

And then we've also got the conclusion of "The Doctor's Demons" for your reading pleasure. I had quite a bit of fun with this one and learned a handful of tricks that make the comic creation process go a lot more smoothly, so expect more (but not too many more) toy comics in the future. Given that some of these tips involved the creation of dialogue bubbles, more screencap comics are also very likely. There may even be one in the next update! And barring the possibility of a quick Crayon Haiku update in the mix, the next update should contain the next installment of Mickey Glitter's Sarah Jane Smith Fashionista Fever as well. 🙂

And now it's plug time! Ragey of Random Action Hour and Random Hoo Haas was kind enough to make a financial donation to the site, so the very least I can do is remind y'all how cool his websites are and encourage you to check them out. In fact, even I didn't realize how wicked they were until I browsed them in greater detail for the purposes of this plug!

Yes, I knew about the engaging cartoon summaries on Random Action Hour, which -- among many, many other shows -- include recaps of all of the hilarious American "Street Fighter" and "Darkstalkers" 'toons. But I had no idea about the in-depth looks of completely insane games like Diet Go Go. Heck, there's even a fun review of Transformers Action Master Blaster that kinda makes me wish I had some of these little guys. And I couldn't help but be impressed when I looked at Ragey's update information on Random Action Hour! I so need to be that prolific with SC.

Anyway, there's so much stuff on Ragey's sites that I could single out articles for particular praise all day -- just get over there and check 'em out for yourself already. :mrgreen:

Aaaand finally, speaking of plugs, here's another one for Superarticulated, where I've got another brief guest review up: this time of the Series 1 Kroenen in the greater Hellboy movie figures review. Don't expect this renewed action figure kick to end anytime soon, folks. 😉

Okay, that's all for now. See you next time, minna-san!
