Jack is Back!!! Samurai Jack that is.

By Corey Saltytruth Floyd

It was a long time coming but Samurai Jack has returned to cartoon network. If you follow us on Twitter (and you should) @Basick_D_B was live tweeting and for good reason.  Believe it or not, the photo in the article is Jack. 

We are reintroduced to our hero looking like he is fresh off Fury Road sporting Samurai style armor and a motorcycle with spikes on the wheels. He takes out a few hundred drones with his machine gun and staff. Oh yeah, 


They haven’t gone in what happened to it exactly but the episode did cover one interesting aspect of the story. It has been 50 years since the last time we saw him yet he hasn’t aged a day and on top of that throughout the episode, he is haunted by visions of his family dying and calling to him for help it was really creepy. 

But it still had its light side he took on an assassin robot that was voiced by a Sammy Davis Jr. ( google him if you don’t know what I’m talking about) that used music as a weapon. Fun, creative, as well as intense battle,  took place. We did not see AKU during the episode but I did heard his voice. The animation is slightly upgraded from the original. 

You can see the details of each frame. By the look of the credits seems like 85% of the original team working on this I suggest you guys check it out. I won’t be going episode by episode on this but after the season it will receive the good, the bad, and the SALTY but so far so good.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.

1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

Top 10 masks in comics by Braheim Comic Boss Gibbs

Ok, Edna, I understand why no capes easy to grab, villains can choke a hero out with his own cape, and don’t get me started on the fashion aspect of them they’re so Detective Comics am I right?  But, what about mask they definitely make more sense. With just eye covers your whole secret identity is safe from prying bad guys that want to do bad things. So you can continue taking the kids to soccer practice or living you billionaire playboy lifestyle. I’m looking at you, Bruce, Tony, and T'challa. Now that we’ve established that mask is essential to longevity in the superhero gig here are my top ten masks in comics. These mask strike fear or annoyance in everyone they come across friend and foe. In no particular order.
