Beasts Of The 5th Sun

Check out the exclusive preview clip of the Secret Saturdays console game, "Beasts Of The 5th Sun" over at kidzworld! Looks awesome! From the site: "... players will take control of multiple characters that include the entire Saturday family... and some select Cryptids to fly, swing, pole vault and battle enemies. Players will adventure through 10 action packed levels in amazing environments from dangerous jungles to lost undersea cities to collect and interact with more than 50 never-before-seen Cryptids. Along the way, players will record the details of each find in their very own Cryptipedia. Fun puzzle elements allow players to locate hidden Cryptids and discover new paths as they fight recognizable enemies from the show including Van Rook, Piecemeal, Munya and the evil V.V. Argost.

New Episodes

The new 10 episodes of the Secret Saturdays are shaping up very nicely. You'll have to wait until the Fall to see what I mean, but here's a little teaser image of just a few of the many cryptids that will be making an appearance. That's the Lake Van Monster, Xing-Xing, Arabhar, Vltava River Sprite, and a new Naga...

TCAF 2009

I'll be lurking around TCAF all weekend, in case you're wondering. All I gotta say is, Yoshihiro Tatsumi is in the hood! Hope to see you there.

Crypto Library

The Secret Saturdays Film Manga books aren't the only serialized publications by Del Rey/Random House to launch this summer. We're also going to get cool little chapter books, like the one shown above (Vol. 3, The Call Of Kur), featuring art by the likes of series director Scott Jeralds and the ever-wicked Ethan Beavers. The first two in the series will be adaptations of the Hibagon and Kumari Kandam episodes. Add the Field Guide into the mix, and you've got yourself quite a Secret Saturdays Library!

Mummy Art

While I'm still thinking about Tutenstein, here's a link to the online porfolio of character designer extraordinaire, Thomas Perkins. Check out his Tutenstein stuff!


I'm not at all sure what this news item might mean for the future of my undead creation, Tutenstein, but it sounds pretty good! Hasbro and Discovery Kids have combined into a new entertainment concern, and Tut is now in the same boat as the likes of G.I. Joe and My Little Pony. Who'd a thunk it?
