It’s true – Mattel and Sony Pictures are coming together to create a live-action comedy centered on our favorite fashion doll.

Hannah Minghella, Columbia Pictures’ president of production, had this to say:

We’ve always thought that the Barbie story had great potential, but a universe of possibilities opened up when Jenny, Walter and Laurie brought us their unexpected, clever, and truly funny concept. It captures everything that has made Barbie a classic for generation after generation while also standing on its own, establishing Barbie as a truly original screen character.

The actual plot is not yet known, but may involve the use of some of Barbie’s various careers and personas she has accumulated since her inception. Production begins at the end of the year, with Jenny Bicks (What a Girl Wants, Rio 2) composing the script.

Archie Andrews will sacrifice himself to save the life of a friend in issue #36 of Life With Archie. The issue will be released in July.

This event is meant to conclude the Life With Archie series, which follows the lives of Archie, Betty, Veronica, and all their Riverdale friends as they move through the motions of life after high school.

Publisher Jon Goldwater had this to say:

We’ve been building up to this moment since we launched Life With Archie five years ago and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie’s life as an adult had to also show his final moment. This story is going to inspire a wide range of reactions because we all feel so close to Archie. Fans will laugh, cry, jump off the edge of their seats and hopefully understand why this comic will go down as one of the most important moments in Archie’s entire history. It’s the biggest story we’ve ever done, and we’re supremely proud of it.

However, before you go into a tizzy and break out the tissues, remember that Archie is alive and kicking in his regular series. Archie Comics seems to come up with a new gimmick every few years to get our attention, and this is no exception. In other words, take stuff like this with a grain of salt and go about your Archie comic reading business. This Archie fan plans to, anyway.

Want to hear something truly, truly, truly outrageous? Jem is back – in film form!

It was recently announced that a live-action film is in the works for this treasured ’80s franchise. However, unlike many Hollywood endeavors, the creators wish for fans to contribute. Whether a person wants to submit designs for costumes or vie for a spot on the cast, they can do so by visiting the movie’s official Tumblr page. “It’s sort of like Kickstarter,” said director Jon M. Chu. “But rather than asking for money, we’re asking for your creativity.”

Jem and the Holograms ran from 1985 to 1988, and the story revolved around Jerrica Benton and her mysterious pop star alter-ego. The series spawned merchandise like lunchboxes, coloring books, and costumes. I recall receiving a doll for my birthday, and I have many warm memories of taking her on adventures around my childhood neighborhood.

The team behind this project includes Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun (a good sign, right?); Jason Blum, who will act as producer; Jon M. Chu, director.

What do you guys think about this latest development?

Who can deny the unique experience that comes with reading the funny pages? The ink that marks your fingers, the delicate texture of the paper. Though many of us will always hold a spot in our hearts for newspaper comics, the landscape is changing. More and more people choose to read webcomics such as Penny Arcade and xkcd. Is this a good thing, or is it time to panic and lament? Stripped sets out to answer this question – or at least explore it – by interviewing over 70 big-name artists in the printed and digital comic industry.

According to the official website:

STRIPPED is a love-letter to comic strips. It brings together the world’s best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what happens to it as newspapers die. Over 90 interviews were conducted, including the first-ever audio interview with Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes), as well as Jim Davis (Garfield), Cathy Guisewite(Cathy), Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Mike & Jerry (Penny Arcade), Matt Inman (The Oatmeal), Jeff Keane (The Family Circus), Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics), Lynn Johnston (FBOFW), Zach Weiner (SMBC), Scott Kurtz (PvP), Scott McCloud(Understanding Comics), Richard Thompson (Cul de Sac), Jeph Jacques(Questionable Content), Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) and more. STRIPPED sits down with these creators to talk about how cartooning works, why it’s so loved, and how they’re navigating this dicey period between print and digital options…when neither path works perfectly.

Even more than comics, this movie’s about pursuing art in an age when the business of art is changing constantly.

If you’re a fan of Bill Watterson, know this – he’s provided the artwork for the poster of this documentary. Stripped is available for pre-order on iTunes, and the official release date for the DVD is April 2nd.

I like to think of myself as an ardent observer of cartoons, including the Disney clones sitting in the $5 bin at Walmart – however, some things do slip under my radar and catch me by surprise. While partaking in my usual search for cheesy films on iTunes – yes, I really do this – I came across Cinderella at the Emerald Castle: An Animated Classic. I discovered that it’s owned by an Italian company called Mondo TV. The studio behind the creation of this movie goes by PlumTum. Tatsunoko Productions co-produced it, which would explain the anime style artwork.

Here is what the iTunes page says about the movie:

Come along with Cinderella as she ventures into the Emerald Castle in this high quality animated feature for your kids and family.

It doesn’t look like something anybody should rush to buy, and their emphasis on “high quality” and “classic” sounds a few alarms in my mind. Therefore, you can bet your copy of Flappy Bird that I’ll be watching it as soon as possible. If you want to see what other films PlumTum has to offer while you wait, you may also purchase Robin Hood I: An Animated Classic and Welcome Back Pinocchio: An Animated Classic, among others.

Cinderella at the Emerald Castle: An Animated Classic will be available February 25th at a price of $7.99: An Animated Classic.

Though he died in 1980, Tex Avery carries a legacy that is difficult to dispute. Even if you don’t know whom he is, he’s inspired the cartoons you know and love in some fashion. From Tiny Toon Adventures to Spongebob Squarepants to Ren & Stimpy, the pool is wide and deep. I know him best from the Red Hot Riding Hood short, albeit vaguely from early Saturday morning TV sessions.

The people of his hometown of Taylor, Texas have marked February 22, 2014, as Tex Avery Day on the calendar.

The festivities will take place at the Howard Theatre, and the event will feature the dedication of a Texas State Historical Marker in Avery’s honor, as well as guest speakers, screenings of his cartoons, and a Tex Avery portrait unveiling.

A swirl of controversy surrounds a Powerpuff Girls comic book variant cover that was set to ship in February from IDW Publishing. Cartoon Network chose to pull the plug after a series of complaints came to light. The cover was meant for the sixth issue.

One unhappy observer, a comic book retailer named Dennis Barger Jr., posted his complaints on Facebook:

Are we seriously sexualizing pre-teen girls like perverted writing fan fiction writers on the internet???? is that what this shit has gotten to? DISGUSTED

Dirk Wood, the vice president of marketing for IDW, responded to Barger with this message:

That was actually a Cartoon Network mandated cover, by an artist of their choosing. I think they were thinking of it more along the lines of ‘female empowerment’ than the kind of thing you guys are talking about, but certainly, we’re sensitive to the issues here. We love making comics for kids, and always want them to be appropriate. For what it’s worth, CN has been a great partner in that regard… I know an 8 year old and 10 year old really well, and always look at these kinds of things through their eyes… Half of the employees have kids here, and we pride ourselves in making comics they’ll enjoy and not give them a warped view of the world (except, you know, in a good way). Anyway, I certainly see your points, and we’ll be sensitive to these things, as I think we mostly have been.

Cartoon Network moved to eliminate the fuss and minimize damage with this statement:

In conjunction with our licensing partners, Cartoon Network Enterprises from time to time works with the artist community to reimagine and reinterpret our brands using their talents and unique points of view. This particular variant cover for The Powerpuff Girls #6 from IDW was done in the artist’s signature style and was intended to be released as a collectible item for comic book fans. We recognize some fans’ reaction to the cover and, as such, will no longer be releasing it at comic book shops.

What do you guys think? Is this inappropriate, or is it simply an overreaction?

Young Horses has announced a January 30th release date for its highly anticipated sequel to Octodad. Dadliest Catch will be available on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. You can also expect to find it on Humble and GOG. The developer hopes to expand to the PS4 by March, according to creator Philip Tibitoski.

Octodad revolves around a dad with an incredible secret – he’s an octopus. The original game forces players to stay within the confines of the family home. However, Octodad: Dadliest Catch takes you to the grocery store, the backyard, and even an aquarium. You must control Octodad and help him blend in with normal humans – if you don’t, he might be the new dish at the local seafood buffet! The cartoon-like atmosphere is sure to pique the interests of animation fans.

Young Horses had this to say on the matter:

It’s been a long time coming, and we’re super excited that the game is finally going to be in players hands at the end of this month.

The game has an MSRP of $14.99.
