Linkblogging is bad for your health....

I linkblog, therefore I am.

Actually, if I didn't, I would post a lot less because I just don't have that much to say sometimes. Tonight we have mostly pictures, but also some other random tidbits. We'll start however with one of my favorite topics: Megan Fox! All Transformer pictures courtesy of IESB.






I know a lot of you have seen the last two posters there, but they are so cool, I couldn't resist throwing them up again. About 2 more weeks for me to post as many Megan Fox pictures as possible. Be prepared.

We were also treated to more Batman: Dark Knight photos, this time of the new Batpod! It is a replacement for the Batcycle, and features two 508mm tires, each driven by their own engine. This is a real working model according to CBR.



Looks like a pretty badass ride, but not entirely original. There has been a two-wheel-drive motorcycle which uses separate engines for each wheel for the last 40 years. It's a bit of a stretch, but the daddy of the Batpod may very well be the Rokon. This is the Rokon Ranger dirt bike:


Obviously they made major changes because the Rokon just doesn't strike fear in the hearts of evildoers, but the similarities are definitely there.

In other news today, Marvel and Kids WB! announced plans for a brand new Spectacular Spider-Man Saturday morning cartoon to launch in early 2008. From CBR again:

“The use of the ‘Spectacular' title is an homage to Marvel's wildly popular series of Spider-Man comics, and is very reflective of the enthusiasm and high regard we have for the production,”
Kids' WB! Senior Vice President and General Manager Betsy McGowen said. “This promises to be a stand-out animated series that will perfectly complement both Sony Entertainment's box office-shattering films and the amped-up action on Kids' WB! every Saturday.”
Is there anyway this won't be cheesy? Is there anyway this won't be awesome, too? It is being produced by the guy who did Gargoyles and The Batman, so it is likely to be a little darker and grittier (I hope).

There is a new look at Deadpool's Laughing Den (formerly known as The Merc With A Mouth is Back!). Stop by for some insanity covering just about anything he feels like. I am still trying to digest his recent post about... roasted chicken! You have to read it to believe it.

Shelly at Shelly's Comic Book Shelf is worried about the future of the JLA now that Brad Meltzer is leaving and Dwayne McDuffie is taking over. However, her concerns are answered in a forum reply from the scribe himself. Head over to see who may or may not be on the new JLA team that Dan Didio announced will be trimmed.

That's about all for tonight, have fun tomorrow and if you don't know what is coming out yet, check out the latest Waiting on Wednesday for more info.

I used to date one of the writers of Gargoyles and therefore became very knowledgable about that series. I'm glad I did, since it was REALLY well-done and superbly written for.

Good mix of serious writing and comedy, which is exactly the tone Spidey works best with in my opinion.

There is no way I am going to that godforsaken place called Deadpool's Laughing Den...wait a minute...that is my blog...oh crap ...I just shot myself on the foot didnt I,lol!

As for the Spiderman cartoon series I would have liked them to continue the MTV one since it was a really fresh perspective on the character. Oh well, roll on Spectacular Spiderman!

@DPL

Don't worry about shooting yourself in the foot, your healing factor should take care of that, right?

@spencer

Gargoyles was an awesome cartoon, but I used to have to sneak to my friends house to watch it. My mom could be a bit restrictive about what we were allowed to watch, and Gargoyles was not on her list (demonic undertones or something...).
