-A Rumor of Live-Action Lupin

-A New 2D Fighter ready to take on all challengers

-And A Warning that the Red Comet is coming To Japan?!

All that, and the first ever 2010 Summer Checklist in this week’s Friday ACE!



Mike here. Going to make this quick as I’m literally going to have to run out the door in a few minutes to attempt the impossible: A double-feature screening of both SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD and THE EXPENDABLES. Wish me luck!

-In case you didn’t catch it, for details regarding Intervention, go to interventioncon.com!

-The song used to prime up the Summer Checklist is “I Still Love H.E.R.” by the Teriyaki Boyz featuring Kanye West.

-Yes, Virginia, that was a SUPERHUMAN SAMURAI SYBER-SQUAD reference you heard in the Highlight Reel. I just couldn’t resist.

Any other questions and so forth? E-mail me at [email protected]!

Until the next,

Mike Dent
