  1. Samurai Jack Back From The Past in New Comic Series

    Watch out!

    In 2004, the beloved Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack was abruptly cancelled. The time traveling hero was never able to return to his own era and square down with nemesis Aku, leaving the series sadly unresolved. But his saga is finally set to continue in a comic series published by IDW that gives us the fifth season we always wanted.

    If Guillermo del Toro and Genndy Tartakovsky were actually to collaborate on something (like maybe that Samurai Jack movie, huh), I think I might blow a gasket.

  4. The Fall of Cartoon Network

    Essay

    Have you noticed anything different about the programming on Cartoon Network? How about the fact that there’s a dramatic decrease in actual good, quality cartoons? Before we get right down to the problem, I would like you to jump into my time machine, back to 1994 when Cartoon Network Studios was born. I’m not going to bore you with too many details, but what made Cartoon Network so great was its original programming -- overseen by the president of the network, Jim Samples. The What-A-Cartoon! Show premiered in 1995 and showcased a slew of new cartoon ideas, many of which eventually got their own series including Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken, The Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and so on.

  5. Genndy Tartakovsky’s Priest Prologue Most Exciting Thing About Priest So Far

    Foolish Samurai Warrior

    There's nothing that makes the rest of your movie or video game look less interesting in comparison than a stylized and well animated explanatory prologue or epilogue. Hellboy II, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Dante's Inferno, I'm looking at you. And here's me thinking it'd be months before I'd get to use the Foolish Samurai Warrior category again. Speaking of which, Mr. Tartakovsky, when's that Samurai Jack movie happening? You know, the one that J. J. Abrams said he was doing? Sym-Bionic Titan was shiny and all, and you'll have to find someone to replace Mako and that'll be really sad, but... we want to know how he gets back to the past. (via io9.)

  6. First Clip of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Sym-Bionic Titan

    After a haitus of more than seven years, Genndy Tartakovsky is finally returning to the realm of television animated series with his new show, Sym-Bionic Titan. As Wired puts it:
    Its sci-fi story of three aliens — plucky princess Ilana, her soldier protector Lance and their level-headed cyborg Octus — hiding out in Illinois from space mutants sounds like child's play. But once they attract intergalactic assassins to Earth, Sym-Bionic Titan instantly transforms into an adult-oriented intergalactic smackdown that levels everything from skyscrapers to military battalions in its action-packed path.
    After Clone Wars and Samurai Jack, we can believe that these simple parts will add up to a mature and visually stunning masterpiece. Video, and a quote that will be of special interest to any fans of the puny samurai warrior, below.
