The Awesome List: Octochair



Comics

*Greg McElhatton reviews David B's The Littlest Pirate King. [Read About Comics]

*Marvel shared their April releases this week. Sigil #2 reveals that their new Crossgen mini-series aren't necessarily rebooting just the comic in their titles as the pirates of El Cazador also appear in this issue.

There's a new issue of Namor: The First Mutant of course. I've been wanting to try this out and just picked up the first issue of the new storyline after the opening X-Men-crossover storyline finished. I'll let you know what I think.

Dinosaurs are going to get plenty of attention in April too. Reptyl naturally appears in Avengers Academy #12, and Ka-Zar and the Savage Land appear prominently in both Skaar: King of the Savage Land #s 1 and 2 and Spider-Man #13.

*Dinosaurs are also big players in DC's April comics. Magic ones (summoned by Zatanna, for some reason) are featured in Power Girl #23 and Secret Six: The Reptile Brain collects a storyline in which Bane and some cohorts conduct a mission in dinosaur-filled Skartaris.

*Adventure! thought of another jungle girl they missed in their list last week: Tawana from Abbot and Costello Comics.


Movies

*A couple of new photos have been released from Pirates of the Caribbean 4. [/Film]

*Cavegirls in Fur Bikinis reviews Tyrannosaurus Azteca.

TV

*Hawaii Five-O is having a very special guest star in an upcoming episode: the famous tidal wave from its opening credits.They're also adding a new cast member: a female version of a guy who used to guest star on the original version every once in a while. I watched the original really sporadically as a kid, so I didn't realize that there was a recurring villain or a man from Washington who occasionally showed up to try to catch him.

*The Black Panther cartoon that I thought was going to air on BET, but never did is now on DVD.

Miscellaneous

*The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is offering some online courses to teach ocean exploration.Topics include: searching for ocean anomalies, selecting sites for exploration, communication tools, telepresence technology, ocean mapping techniques, water column study and operating underwater robots.

*A student from the Semester at Sea program is blogging about her experience. There's also a group blog documenting the trip.

*An octopus-shaped chair is certainly villainous, but I can't help wanting one for my living room. Although I'd also need a trident to hold while sitting in it.

I loved that Black Panther cartoon. I can't believe BET didn't pick up that program. It is really a terrific series.

I just read today that there were some legal issues around it, but the article didn't go into detail about what those were. Curious.

10. The Wind So good. The Wind uses the isolation of pioneer life to create a scary, atmospheric, Western horror. It's beautifully ...
