Attack!

Posted: August 23, 2017 in Babymetal, Cool stuff, General, Magazines

I have no information about this magazine other than it was listed among other publications on Amazon in Japan. But it sports a rather nice Babymetal cover in any case, and I know enough about their moves by now to spot that they were captured during the song “Road Of Resistance” by the photographer. Whatever the publication is, and maybe somebody could help us out here, it says “No. 172” in the top left corner. As for what is going on with Babymetal, they have another six concerts to go in Japan until mid October but my guess is that they are in the process of recording the next album. They just know how to keep quiet about it so it can be announced properly at a gig, which is how they do things. Who knows?

Watch “Road Of Resistance” here (14,000,000 hits and counting on YouTube).

This is a good cover. German edition of Metal Hammer (September 2017). Arch Enemy´s Alissa White-Gluz is a strong front for the band and I am looking forward to the new album “Will To Power” that comes out a couple of weeks from now. “The World Is Yours” video has over 5,600,000 hits on YouTube, which is very good.

Commando 5049

Here is an exclusive preview of Commando (issue) 5049, due to be published on August 24 in the UK. Nice to see a Viking adventure again. This one features a story by Shane Filer and both inside and cover art is by Carlos Pino. First time in print.

Classic Donald Duck

Posted: August 22, 2017 in Comics, General

This pocket sized Carl Barks comic turned out to be a nice little treasure. “Sheriff of Bullet Valley” (Fantagraphics Books, 2015) consists of a 68 page Donald Duck adventure (plus a few short stories at the end, 98 pages in total) that takes you back to the good old days. I quite enjoyed this one. I also like the format in itself.

Top notch.

Nice action cover

This is a good cover. Japanese publication RC World (issue) 261. You have to wonder what they are up to over there.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Vikings

Well I watched Vikings Season 4 Volume 2 and they still deliver like no other show, past or present. I take my hat off to the creative team behind this Saga, it is Epic in every way imaginable.

Long may it reign.

Spitfire In Sweden

Posted: August 21, 2017 in Books, Cool stuff, General

This looks like a good read. Author Mikael Forslund´s “Spitfire In Sweden” (Mikael Forslund Produktion, 2017). Hardback, 208 pages, over 500 photographs.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.
