DC’s new “in-between” Young Animals line is great

Lego Batman: Must See

The breakout character from the hit Lego Movie stars in what will have to be the sequel until there is a second Lego Movie. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s completely the opposite, totally awesome. We get to see the Will Arnett … Continue reading

This header is more like it II

Technically last month was Batman’s 75th birthday, no wait, March? Or better yet, Bruce Wayne tends to be February 19. Who cares, he is a fictional character and I chose June for  one main reason, it’s also the 25th anniversary … Continue reading
