This Episode: Stolen Memories
This Episode: The Way of All Flesh
+ A Mini Rant
It’s time for another NetworkNews Update. There’s some really cool news this time and some uneventful stuff, so let’s get this underway.
Hiatus Set End-Date?
First thing’s first, the show will be coming back by the end of next month. That is pretty much a sure thing. At the time of my writing this, I am uncertain of whether the show will maintain its weekly format or will have to change to biweekly/monthly. I can say, with certainty, that the first few reviews back are going to be multi-part episodes, released across several days instead of all at once. This is because these episodes were done in a…”unique” way. Rather than reviewing one or two issues a title, I knocked out an entire volume. While I hesitate to say that I won’t be doing that again, I will say that it’s something that won’t happen often, as the preparation required to get that type of thing ready for shooting is a nightmare.
The schedule is remaining unchanged.
-Red Hood & The Outlaws vol. 1
-Teen Titans vol. 1
-Super-Girl vol. 1
-Wonder Woman vol. 1
Following this series of New 52 reviews, I will be taking a break from the New 52 to do some backtracking. I intend to re-review a number of comics that I’d reviewed in the past, but better. I won’t disclose those here, but I haven’t really reviewed that many so your odds of guessing the right ones are high.
Now let’s talk about the really fun news. My room, AKA, my “set”, is done. Everything is set up in my room the way I want it. All I have to do is put up a couple posters that will be here in the mail within the next week. I also have all of the props I need.
More cool stuff coming for the show includes a new, original theme song, a logo for the show, a general title card, and a number of other new features that will hopefully make the show seem more tightly knit. One addition that I’ll be contributing on my own is the addition of a sort of “Comic Segment” in the show. This is basically a way to handle certain storyline bits without having to worry about costumes and props and things. I don’t have any money to pay anyone else to draw them, so I’ll have to do that myself.
Call to Assist
Next I want to mention the official NNTV Patreon account. I’d really appreciate it if you guys would help support what I do by sharing the account with others and contributing, yourselves. It’s only a dollar a month (though you can donate whatever amount you want) and if I can get a few regular patrons, I should be able to improve the show even further. And I am working on the prizes and benefits of donations. Presently I am working on have T-Shirts and other paraphernalia made, so that’s something to look forward to. I’ll also look into doing exclusive live chats and video prizes, as well as some other cool stuff, like maybe a Toonified version of you or something. Contact me if you have any idea what you guys might want in return for your help with donations.

There anything in particular that you guys would like to see me do v-logs on? Here’s a list of what I already have planned for the foreseeable future.
-My Life as a Teenage Robot
-Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
-The Spectacular Spider-Man
-Batman: Mask of the Phantasm
-Pokemon (Indigo League – Johto League)
The only Con that I may be able to attend in the near future is Mythicon, right here in Orlando. September 19-21. I can’t go to any cons out of state, for fairly obvious reasons.
This is something of an experiment, but if anyone would be interested in seeing written original content, then please let me know. I am, after all, a writer first. I am working on a few comics, but that’s not quite the same…and they take longer…a lot longer.
I believe that’s about the long and short of everything. Don’t forget to follow my blog and follow me on Twitter. Like ThatRuled on Facebook, of course. Like and share our content and, as always, take care.
