“You need more Meatspace in your diet — a gonzo near-future fantasia that’s as fun as any comic has a right to be.” — Fred Van Lente, Writer - Archer & Armstrong, Action Philosophers, Marvel Zombies 3
“Do like your detective stories wrapped in post cyberpunk sci fi with a dash of fantasy roleplay? If you do, you should be picking up Meatspace. If you don’t, you’re a rat find and there may not be any hope for you. Josh Gorfain gives a fully realized vision of a future where things may be different, but the old evils have never really changed, and Andrew McClean realizes it in a style that is unlike anything you’re probably used to but is perfect for the story. Read Meatspace today.” - - Justin Jordan, Writer - The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Team 7, Shadowman
There’s a lot to love about comic books. For generations, comics have offered readers of all ages fantastic stories using constantly-evolving, truly groundbreaking techniques. Today, the comic industry is gaining even greater exposure by inspiring iconic blockbuster films, TV shows, and conventions. Attendance numbers at comic conventions are growing at an unprecedented rate. But are people really getting to know the comicculture through these mass appeal translations? More and more people are finding their way to the comic world’s greatest characters via games they’ve played and movies they’ve seen…so why aren’t comics selling through the roof? Why is the industry struggling to survive?
This documentary takes a look at the comic industry from the inside out, guided by writers, illustrators, editors, distributors, Hollywood storytellers, and global fans of the art form. You’ll see the genesis of our shared love of comics, and explore the inspirations that keep creators running. You’ll learn what these creators love about the industry today, and what they hope to see improved for the industry’s survival tomorrow. No topic is off the table: economics, fan culture, the industry’s need to open its ranks to include a wider range of race and gender - it’s all discussed. This film isn’t a tell-all in the scandalous sense, but it IS full of honest stories and opinions offered up by the people behind the pages.
This is the complete run of the original cartoon commercial animations used for the G.I.Joe Marvel comic run. I haven’t found these on youtube yet and I have always wanted to give back for all that I have taken. Here it is! Someone else recorded the video so I couldn’t do anything there. A few episodes are incomplete but I included what was available. I know many people have been looking for these.
It is because of the initial cartoon commercials for the comics which created the demand for the daily series which was good but not as good as it could had been if it was produced along the same principles as these 30 second commercials. I fell in love with G.I.Joe with the help of these commercials. They were brilliant and still are after 25 years!
After waiting 25 years, I wish the new live action movie would live up to the exciting standards set by this groundbreaking series! Instead, the new G.I.Joe “Rise of Cobra” seems to be rewriting things as they go along. So much for progress. What I have on youtube is what I feel is G.I.Joe. I hope everyone will agree!

A videogame is rendered unwinnable when it allows a player to make a mistake that can not be corrected. The result is a game that can not be won. Worse, the text adventures and graphic adventures that such a situation arose in rarely bothered to notify the player that they would never succeed in their quest, leaving them to trudge around the game world forever like the walking dead.
