    Totally remember BraveStar – “strength of the bear!” “Speed of the puma!” “Sight of the eagle!”
    I can’t remember what my favorite was when I was 10 – was TMNT around in 1989?

  2. captamerica101 captamerica101 (@Autobot_Hunter) says:

    dropping avengers this week. its good, but there’e too much wonderful coming out of marvel now for me to keep buying “good”
    BQ: despite being far too young to have seen these shows when they aired, i watched the crap out of 80′s transformers and g.i.joe on dvd.

  3. Not dropping or adding this week. Looking forward to the Surfer appearance in Daredevil. A pretty normal week for me:

    BATMAN ’66 #2
    DAREDEVIL #30
    SUPERMAN: UNCHAINED #3
    X-MEN #4

    BQ: I was really obsessed with Battle of the Planets as a kid. Otherwise, pretty standard fare like Transformers, G.I. Joe and He-Man.

  4. sheldon-kerr says:

    Big week for me….

    Superman: Unchained #3
    Daredevil #30
    Brother Lono #3
    Avengers #18
    Indestructible Hulk #12

    BQ: When I was 10 (1995) I would have been obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghost Busters.

  5. sitara119 sitara119 says:

    BQ: Transformers, GI Joe, He-Man, Thundercats, Inspector Gadget and TMNT.
    Some of the more obscure animation would be Brave Star, Visionaries, Turbo Teen and Centurions.

  6. RobotZombie RobotZombie says:

    Avengers
    Daredevil
    Dream Thief
    Hulk
    The Bounce
    X-Men

    BQ – Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Superfriends, Dungeons and Dragons, anything in the 80′s really

  7. CaseyJustice CaseyJustice says:

    DAREDEVIL #30
    GREEN LANTERN: NEW GUARDIANS #23
    NOVA #7
    SONIC UNIVERSE #55
    WONDER WOMAN #23

    Dropping Superman Unchained. Not quite worth the $4.

    BQ: Man, in ’94 it was all about Animaniacs, Spider-Man and ReBoot!

  8. k5blazer k5blazer says:

    SuperFriends had been on for a couple of years then, I hated it. Wendy, Marvin and that dog? They weren’t in the comic so the y didn’t need to be on tv. The local station was still running Batfink, Deputy Dawg, George of the Jungle, Tom Slick and Bullwinkle. Speed Racer and Kimba the White Lion and 8th Man were things I always ran home from school to see as well.

  9. phess1 phess1 says:

    Animal Man
    Avengers
    Avengers Assemble
    Blood Brothers
    Chin Music
    Conan The Barbarian
    Daredevil
    Indestructible Hulk
    Superman Unchained
    The Bounce
    X-Men

    BQ: First of all Batman and the X-men cartoon from 92-93 was my all time favorites. Also started watching Simpsons. Liquid Television and Beavis and Butthead around that time. Animainiacs was also a good one.

  10. martinNL martinNL says:

    BLUESY LUCY EXISTENTIAL CHRONICLES HC
    CHILDREN OF PALOMAR HC
    CONAN THE BARBARIAN #19

    BQ: Dunno exactly when I was 10 (1990), but my favourite cartoons were Transformers, G.I. Joe, ReBoot, Jayce and the wheeled warriors, Dungeons and Dragons, and Ducktales.

  11. SleepingMan SleepingMan says:

    Big comics of the week. X-Factor, Chew vol. 7 Bad Apples, JLD, Animal Man, X-Men Legacy.

    BQ: Megas XLR, Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, Justice League and JLU, Teen Titans and a bunch of others I can’t think of at the moment.

  12. CONAN THE BARBARIAN #19
    DAREDEVIL #30
    INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK #12
    WONDER WOMAN #23
    THE SIXTH GUN #33
    SUPERMAN: UNCHAINED #3
    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #23
    BATMAN ’66 #2

    BQ: probably The Super Friends. It went off the air in 1974… But it was still around in 1976 when I was ten…damn I’m getting too old for this shit…

  13. ghostmann ghostmann says:

    Looking forward to…

    Wonder Woman #23
    Wonder Woman #23
    Wonder Woman #23
    oh, and Wonder Woman #23

    BQ: Seeing as how I’m old as hell, my favorite cartoons as a kid were Starblazers (The Americanized version of Space Battleship Yamato), Robotech (always partial to the Invid storyline), and of course Transformers and G.I Joe (cause learning is half the battle yo)

  14. player1 player1 says:

    I’m making the major cut with Marvel this week.

    I’m deciding which issue of each title will be the last, and how cheaply I think I can get them as back-issues, at some future convention or half-price sale.

    While a cosmic Avengers event by a writer like Jonathan Hickman is exactly my kind of comics, it’s also the perfect place for me to quit again.

    I’ve been a “collector” since about 1973 or 74.

    Just had a birthday, been buying for 40-plus years now, no more room or budget left.

    Time to start really selling this stuff.

    This is my third Reawakening From Marvel Zombie-hood.

    I’m down to ten titles total, all formats.

    Daredevil, Hawkeye, Batman, Batman & The Ghost of Robin, The Wake, Lazarus, Collider, Velvet, Black Science and The Private Eye, which will be my first digital comic when I buy it later today.

    In the words of Megaton Man: “Alright, so I’m back! Now I quit again!”

    • phess1 phess1 says:

      What made you come back after being away the first time two times?

    • player1 player1 says:

      I got more money to blow or they got somehow enticing again.

      Or both, simutaneously.

      First Return circa 1989-ish. X-books explode.

      Second Return circa 2006-ish. Avengers could be cool again?

      I left the first time around ’76 or ’77.

      I followed Zap!, Freak Brothers, Mister Natural, National Lampoon, Savage Sword, Epic Magazine and Heavy Metal towards the Birth of the Eighties B&W “Indy” Scene/Movement.

      The second time I bailed was during the Platinum Era, must’ve been ’96-ish. The Wizard Magazine Bagged-and-Boarded Card-Bound-In Foil Cover Bloat pushed me hard into the arms of the likes of The Comics Journal and the Art Comix of the Early Aughts.

      Both times, the independents either pushed the mainstream hard enough to force it to Do Better, or the indies suffered from Rampant Uncertainty and Unshipped Books, which allowed me to buy some great Marvel comic books for a while.

      I think it’s a sub-rhythm between the Mayan 13-year cycle and the 19-year Metonic Cycle.

      :)

    • CaseyJustice CaseyJustice says:

      Whoa! Player1 be droppin’ KNOWLEDGE!

    • phess1 phess1 says:

      Yeah that’s a really interesting perspective. Do you not enjoy the way that Marvel is currently going?

    • player1 player1 says:

      I’m sure their comics are fine, quite good actually.

      I personally have had enough of buying them for a while.

  15. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    ANIMAL MAN #23
    AVENGERS #18
    DAREDEVIL #30
    SUPERMAN: UNCHAINED #3
    WONDER WOMAN #23
    X-MEN #4

    BQ: Like many of us, Batman TAS and X-Men were essential parts of my childhood and pivotal in my budding interest in comics. I also dug Superman TAS, TMNT, The Real Ghostbusters, Tiny Toons, Ducktales, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, Rugrats, Doug, Ren and Stimpy, and The Simpsons.

  16. cubman987 cubman987 says:

    BQ: Batman: The Animated Series debuted when I was 10, I pretty much loved that show then and I still do today.

    • player1 player1 says:

      A great show.

      Just rewatched all of it recently.

      It was the dawning of the era of not-crappy superhero cartoons.

      That show was the beginning of good superhero cartoons.

      Thank Heaven for B: TAS.

      It proved it could be done.

  17. SUPERMAN: UNCHAINED #3
    DEXTER #2

    BQ: I was probably 12 or 13 when it aired but I loved The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse. I remember it was also the first time I watched Phil Donahue because the topic was the controversial episode of the cartoon where MM sniffs the flower and gains super speed.

  18. player1 player1 says:

    BQ: OK, it was 1971, so you’ll excuse please when I say the following. Two shows, both Wacky Races spinoffs, called The Perils of Penelope Pitstop and Dastardly and Muttley and Their Flying Machines were all the rage.

    They were silly. They were kind of proto-meta. And they combined my love of Hot Wheels with my love of World War I Flying Aces, which were still “cool” when I was a kid (see Enemy Ace comic feature, Phantom Eagle’s Marvel debut, Flying Aces of World War i Scholastic paperback, and movies like The Blue Max and Aces High).

    A typical Saturday started with the best cartoon ever, Bugs Bunny, and ran through Scooby Doo (while switching to Road Runner or Woody Woodpecker during commercials), Harlem Globetrotters or Deputy Dawg, The New Pink Panther Show or The Jackson 5ive, getting kicked out of the living room around 10 AM, and trying to sneak back in around 11:30 to catch Josie and the Pussycats before the piece de resistance, Jonny Quest, which was on at noon.

    After that I think they ran Westerns, Tarzan movies or Monster Movie Matinee, if I had not already been locked out of the house with orders not to return until sundown.

    Honorable Mention of course goes to any and all of the promising-yet-terrible Hanna-Barbera action/adventure superhero-science-fantasy shows or spoofs, especially Space Ghost, the Herculoids, Birdman, Mighty Mightor, Young Samson, and even Frankenstein Jr. and those impossible Impossibles.

    I must of course also give credit to The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, and the rest, as well as all of the lesser-known Warner Brothers characters, especially Henry Hawk, Foghorn Leghorn, that durn dawg, Sylvester’s son Junior, Pepe Lepew, Granny, Porky and perpetual under-duck, Daffy.

  19. TonyyyG TonyyyG says:

    Talk about a slow week. This one’s gonna be light for me

    BQ- Galaxy Rangers & M.A.S.K.!

  21. seanxxo seanxxo says:

    BQ: the 94 spider-man cartoon was my go to. I don’t remember when it came out but I also had about 4 episodes of Captain Planet on VHS that I must have watched at least 50 times.

  22. Daredevil, the Bounce, Superior Spider-Man and X-Factor for me.

    BQ: Transformers, GI Joe, Thundercats, Gummi Bears, Ducktales, Rescue Rangers

    Lobster Johnson: Scent of Lotus 2

    BQ: While not actually a cartoon, does anybody remember the seizure-inducing show called Captain Power?

  25. TurdSandwich TurdSandwich says:

    Nice mellow week for me. I’m really looking forward to Silver Surfer’s appearance in DD, Wonder Woman and more fantastic stuff from the Mignolaverse with BPRD and Lobster Johnson.

    BPRD
    Conan
    Daredevil
    Lobster Johnson
    Wonder Woman

    BQ: aside from my childhood standby’s like Looney Tunes and Popeye, I’d have to go with the Animated Dennis the Menace; he was pretty much my idol as a kid (I was blonde, with freckles, and a penchant for causing harmless trouble).

    I was also a big fan of the Disney afternoon block: Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, Tale Spin, and Darkwing Duck. Oh! and I can’t leave out The Adventures of the Gummi Bears.

  26. Drumanespic Drumanespic says:

    LSH #23, The Bounce #4 & Wonder Woman #23.

    BQ: Batman the Animated Series (of course), Superman the Animated Series (of course), Spider-Man (of course), Dragonball Z, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Doug, Hey Arnold, Reboot….and just way too many to list. But those are some of the heavyweights for my childhood.

  29. Batman & Nightwing
    Justice League Dark (but only b/c of Trinity War)

    BQ: Starblazers
    Superfriends
    Thundarr the Barbarian

  30. cosmo cosmo says:

    Average week for me: X-O Manowar, Bloodshot (for Kindt), Daredevil, Animal Man, Batwoman & Wonder Woman. Might motivate myself to buy Justice League Dark, might simply flip through it in the store.

    BQ:Transformers and G.I. Joe were my favorites, plus Batman once it started.

  31. hanson724 hanson724 says:

    Bloodshot
    GL New Guardians
    XO Manowar
    Supergirl
    Superman Unchained
    and Venom

    I watched GI Joe(still do on Netflix), Transformers and He-man.

  32. ScottE ScottE says:

    Justice League Dark
    Animal Man
    Superman Unchained
    Avengers
    S. Spiderman
    Daredevil
    JLD
    Hulk

    I just loved Saturday morning cartoons and it saddens me a little my son doesn’t get to have that experience it was a fun way to start the weekend.

  33. pyynk pyynk says:

    My wallet can do with a light week and thankfully this is one for me.

    DAREDEVIL #30
    DREAM THIEF #4
    THE LONE RANGER #17

    Dream Thief snuck up on me. The hook of setting the initial story in Atlanta got my attention and got me interested and now it’s one of the titles I look forward to each month. Great story telling and art. I’m on for Lone Ranger a little bit longer at least — horses and cowboys are a pretty easy sell for me.

    Total kid of the 80′s here. He-Man, Transformers, Dungeons & Dragons, Thundarr the Barbarian, and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends were the BIG ones for me. Spider-Man so much so that in the pre-VCR era, I would audio tape episodes and listen to them on long car rides.

  34. GL01942 GL01942 says:

    Dream Thief #4
    Superman Unchained #3
    Green Lantern: New Guardians #23
    Animal Man #23
    Justice League Dark #23

    Dropping Nova.

    Think I’ll have a look over Batman & Nightwing and maybe pick it up

    BQ: Animaniacs

  35. CaeuZokul CaeuZokul says:

    Looking forward to Animal Man, JL Dark, and the end of Legion *sniff*

    BQ: The Flintstones, Top Cat, and Yogi Bear.

    It was 1961. “Hey Boo Boo!”

  36. ToddFrazier ToddFrazier (@toddfrazier) says:

    I am also looking forward to Hulk, Animal Man and JL Dark. Daredevil never fails to entertain since the Marvel Now introduction.

    I am going to unchain myself from Superman Unchained, sorry Mr. Synder, just not feeling it.

    BQ: Starblazers, space soap opera, pretty sure the broadcasts were episodic and in order form what I remember, have not watched since, not an avid anime fan and really just don’t have the time. Let the memories be!

  37. sheldon-kerr says:

    I just wanted to say what a great bonus question this week. Reading everyones favorite childhood cartoons brings back a lot of good memories and reminds me of shows that I loved but have since forgotten. So, thank you!

  38. BATMAN AND NIGHTWING #23
    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #23
    SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #3
    DAREDEVIL #30
    INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK #12

    BQ: I remember getting up early on Saturday mornings to watch Superfriends, lots of great memories. Also Battle of the Planets was one of my favorites too.

  39. Maty. Maty. says:

    Daredevil, Batwoman, Wonderwoman, X-Men…..

    BQ: My brother and I were way into cartoons- faves were all the early iterations of the Superfriends, the Herculoids/Birdman Show, Scooby Doo (pre-Scrappy Doo), Hong Kong Phooey, Banana Splits, Tom & Jerry and of course the Warner Bros. oeuvre. There was also a Hanna Barbera ‘Great Race’ program that had every HB character in it that we dug. I broke my first twin bed pretending to be Wonder Woman.

    • kennyg kennyg says:

      YES! I left off Herculoids, Warner Bros, and Whacky Racers (the nna Barbera ‘Great Race’ show). I LOVED Banana Splits, but I think I was younger than 10 when it was on. Tom & Jerry are classic too.

    • Maty. Maty. says:

      Banana Splits- remember ‘Danger Island’, with Jan Michael Vincent- “Uh oh Chongo!”

Then there were a lot of live-action shows, some with people in suits: H R Puffinstuff, the Shazam/Isis show, the Kroft Super Show (had several different stories), Ark II, ah the memories. Then there were a lot of ones after school too, not sure if they were just reruns of cancelled Saturday morning shows or intended to run after school.

  42. JSAkid JSAkid says:

    DD (w a SS appearance,c’mon)
    Batwoman
    Venom
    Batman Beyond Universe #1

    Bounce
    Hulk: Agent of T.I.M.E.

    And on the fence with Kiss Kids for the concept alone & Avengers, Avengers Assemble & Thunderbolts being Infinity tie-ins.

    BQ: Cartoon Express (all of it)….Spaceghost, Yogi Bear…etc. Masters of the Universe, Transformers, G.I.Joe, Thundercats, TMNT & Super Friends were at the top (if Super Friends was on still), then there were Crystar, Visionairies, Silverhawks, Droids, Ewoks,Centurions,Inhumanoids,M.A.S.K., Battle Beasts, Voltron, Go-Bots, Shirttails, Smurfs, Snorks, Heathcliff, Inspector Gadget…..Felix The Cat, PAC-Man, Munchichi’s….and of course Carebears (seriously) and My Little Pony (not really).

  43. randall4000 randall4000 says:

    I’m giving Superman Unchained one more issue. I really feel like shaking up my stack. I’m kind of in a rut.

    BATMAN ’66 #2
    CONAN THE BARBARIAN #19
    DAREDEVIL #30
    JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA’S VIBE #7
    LOBSTER JOHNSON: A SCENT OF LOTUS #2
    SUPERMAN: UNCHAINED #3
    THUNDERBOLTS #14
    WONDER WOMAN #23

    BQ: Oh man. At 10 years old I was watching a lot of Spiderman, Super Friends and Smurfs. I had to get up super-early on Saturday to see reruns of Thunderbirds and Space Ghost followed by the Jetsons. That block was preceded by Big Blue Marble. Weekday afternoons– super-violent/slightly racist, unedited Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry. (GI Joe and Transformers came a couple of years later.)
