The marathon streams December 14-17, and includes the titles outlined below.
  • Bravest Warriors: Bravest Warriors follows four teenage heroes-for-hire as they warp through the universe to save adorable aliens and their worlds using the power of their emotions. Created by Pendleton Ward, the mind behind Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time.
  • Bee and PuppyCat: Bee, a reluctant hero, becomes entangled in the adventures of a puppy (…or is he a cat?) as they travel between reality and the void of Fishbowl Space. Created by Natasha Allegri, character designer and storyboard artist for Adventure Time.
  • Cyanide and Happiness: An animated comedy series based on the popular web comic, which has cultivated a passionate online following with more than 4.9 million YouTube subscribers and 821 million views.
  • Dick Figures The Movie: Dick Figures The Movie tells the story of best friends, Red and Blue, who journey around the world hunting down The Great Sword of Destiny. Instead of finding the sword, Blue discovers that Red was never his friend at all. Back when they were kids, Red beat up a bunch of bullies not to save Blue’s life… but to impress all the girls! Now the two friends turned enemies are stuck together in the worst situations imaginable: evading Demon Ninjas, island-hopping in WWII bombers, dodging booby trapped temples, and escaping the French police in a high-speed motorcycle chase all the while at each other’s throats. Not only must Blue get home in time for Pink’s birthday party, but together Red and Blue have to work together to save the world… and their friendship.
  • Too Cool! Cartoons: Too Cool! Cartoons come from new and innovative creators all over the world, right to your eyeballs. Too Cool is Frederator’s fifth big cartoon incubator, which gives rising stars in animation the reigns to produce a short film for Cartoon Hangover. Too Cool! follows in the footsteps of What a Cartoon!, Oh Yeah! Cartoons, The Meth Minute 39, and Random! Cartoons.
  • Lastman: Who’s Richard Aldana? A poor bastard who’s the last man for the job. Watch him fight his way through hell in Mondo’s new series Lastman.
  • Deep Space 69: Deep Space 69 chronicles the misadventures of a transport ship in outer space led by Jay and his Koala, wingman/co-pilot, Hamilton. A send-up to the many humorless sci-fi films and series that take themselves far too seriously, Deep Space 69 treads lightly on space exploration and instead focuses on Jay’s incessant exploits with the fairer sex and Hamilton’s frustration with their foolish missions.
  • X-Story: In a futuristic dystopia, an ambitious man makes a deal with the devil to go to the far reaches of the planet for complete power to rule. He pays the price. Written & Directed by Vitaliy Shushko.
  • Nova Seed: Beneath the decay of a dying world lives the Mad Doctor Mindskull. Using the planet’s power of creation he has created the ultimate weapon. Can mankind find a way to stop this Evil before time runs out? The only answer lies within the Nova Seed.
  • Cat Agent: Cat Agent is a cat who’s an agent, who represents cats. Created by Kent Osborne of Adventure Time and SpongeBob SquarePants.
  • Geist: A shipwrecked fisherman is led to a dark secret within this short thriller.
  • Felix Colgrave: Surreal, psychedelic, or just plain madness? Welcome to the brilliance of Felix Colgrave.
  • Dofus: Kerub Crepin’s bazaar is a wondrous treasure trove! By the light of a moss liver oil lamp, you’ll uncover antiques of all kinds: weapons, amulets, talismans;  some ornamental, some precious and even some that are magic… Each has its own tale to tell, and each tale its own episode! It’s the perfect opportunity for the old Ecaflip to share some of his memories, encounters and extraordinary adventures with his adopted son, little Joris.

DC’S YOUNG ANIMAL POP-UP IMPRINT RECEIVES A REMIX WITH NEW TITLES AND SERIES http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dcs-young-animal-pop-up-imprint-receives-a-remix-with-new-titles-and-series/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dcs-young-animal-pop-up-imprint-receives-a-remix-with-new-titles-and-series/#respond Fri, 15 Dec 2017 17:00:49 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=162743 DC / Young Animal Crossover Event “Milk Wars” Sends Ongoing Series in New Directions

 

Following the events of the DC/Young Animal crossover event “Milk Wars” this winter, the main titles of the DC’s Young Animal line will get a mix-up of their own, with new series titles and story directions. The pop-up imprint, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, continues to set the bar for innovation in comics, using the five-part event beginning January 31 to send each title back to #1, with strange and crazy new stories.

 

“Young Animal is back to bringing the weird, with all your favorite characters going in drastically new directions not even they could expect,” says Way. “Find out what these characters are up to now, and how they’ve hit their next level of evolution.”

Beginning March 7, Shade has shed her alien identity, stepping out of her original Earth body into a new one. SHADE, THE CHANGING WOMAN begins as Loma, now free of the burdens of her past life, sets out to see more of her new home. But how will she cope when the madness she was forced to confront in the Milk Wars is now a mass of memory and confusion? To make things even more challenging, she’ll come face to face with the original Changing Man. Writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone will continue to helm Loma’s adventures.

 

Then on March 21, after a year of multiverse-hopping, Cave Carson returns to a normal life of digging and cave-diving, but it just isn’t the same for the explorer. Time fast-forwards as Cave and his daughter Chloe are sucked into an all-new adventure—literally—when they go spelunking in a black hole! CAVE CARSON HAS AN INTERSTELLAR EYE continues with writer Jon Rivera and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

 

Then on March 28, follow Violet Paige as she finds herself in a Gotham City unlike anything she’s known before. MOTHER PANIC: GOTHAM A.D. begins ten years into the future, in a world without a Batman, with Gotham City now in the hands of a Collective. In a high-tech town with zero tolerance toward caped crusaders, what’s a woman who has vowed vengeance to do? The series is written by Jody Houser with art by Tommy Lee Edwards and Ibrahim Moustafa (SAVAGE THINGS).

 

Launching from the backup story in “Milk Wars” is ETERNITY GIRL, a new miniseries from GLAAD Award-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and Eisner Award-winning artist Sonny Liew (The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye). The series follows the tragedy of Caroline Sharp, a former superhero and super-spy whose cursed powers have left her hideously deformed and unable to die! Her only solution? Destroy the universe. This new series begins March 7.

 

The “Milk Wars” event kicks off in JLA/DOOM PATROL SPECIAL #1 on January 31. The epically weird crossover adventure featuring characters from the JLA and DC’s Young Animal will continue throughout February.
