Darkwing Duck

Darkwing Duck

Darkwing Duck might be my favorite Disney cartoon of all time.  Only the Aladdin TV series comes close (it’s a god damn crime it isn’t on DVD yet).  Part of that stems from my lifelong love of comic books of...

3-D World Runner

Vice: Project Doom

I’m ashamed to admit I wrote off Vice: Project Doom for a very long time.  I thought the box art was lame so I avoided it.  At this point I should also mention that I bought Marvel’s X-Men the same...
