BABYMETAL

Sky Arts in the UK has scheduled the Babymetal show at Wembley 2016 (out on CD in Europe and DVD in Japan only) to be shown on July 6 at 11:45 pm. This is a direct result of the incredible success they had at the Glastonbury Festival last weekend. It was decided when Sky Arts noticed the response and when they tested the waters on Twitter fans quickly supported the idea.

ELVIS PRESLEY

There will be an 11 set CD box coming out with Elvis titled “Live 1969” on August 9. It was all recorded at the International Hotel in Las Vegas back in the day. It sports a very cool cover and I think he was in top shape at this time. 50 years ago now.

MAD

MAD Magazine will soon be gone. The last issue with newly produced material will be issue 10 and then they will publish old stuff only until the current subscription has been fulfilled. The magazine was born in 1952 and it had an enormous cultural impact back in the day. I used to buy the Swedish edition for years in the 1970s, still buy special editions to this day.

TEX WILLER

So glad that good old Tex Willer is published in Sweden again. Here we have the first three albums in the new series from Ades Media. These are comics that has been created in the last few years and it is all in colour. A bit expensive but who cares about that when somebody has finally reintroduced Tex over here again.

NAZARETH

More coloured Vinyls are coming up from Nazareth within a couple of weeks. Pretty excited to get “Close Enough For Rock´n´Roll” in blue, but I will certainly add a few more to the old collection, now that I have the chance. Besides, I will have that music room by September and that makes Vinyl very attractive again. Superior format although I will not quit CDs.

XENA

We have a new Xena comic book titled “Mind Games” coming up in August from Dynamite Entertainment. It is the second volume in the new series. Glad to see that Xena is still out there. I think a Xena movie would be pretty interesting right about now. A hard kick-ass Xena can never fail if you do it right.

Nice nostalgia

Posted: June 12, 2019 in Comics, Cool stuff, General, TV & Movies

I used to subscribe to these titles, but these days I buy the odd copies. I like these covers though. Agent X9 (issue) 6 2019 celebrates the 50th Anniversary of this title, and the cover is an actual reprint of issue 1 1969. So that is a bit of a landmark right there. Knasen (issue) 10 2019 points you to the Spaghetti Westerns with Clint Eastwood, and I like the covers where they have some fun with classic themes. This one certainly works.
