Unfortunately, Kevin Smith didn't have a panel at Powercon yesterday, he did record an introduction for a Bear McCreary panel, but there was no new information on Revelation volume two.

...Which is quite telling.

Apparently the second volume will be out towards the end of the year, around either Thanksgiving or Christmas. Leo reckons Thanksgiving.

Thanks for giving everybody the Weekend Updates on my conjecture, Dennis Miller. Love ya buddy.

But yeah, I think the second batch of episodes will be out by Thanksgiving, because if you have to sell toys for Christmas you need at least a month to do it properly. And if I'm not mistaken a new Wave of Masterverse/Revelation figures should be out right around that time. It just makes sense.

Probably should have put out all ten episodes at once - I'm sure at least SOME of people's gripes will be mitigated once they see everything in proper and full context - but Netflix does that sh*t for some reason. It was 100% their decision and I'm not sure why.

My personal theory is, with both that show and the CGI reboot happening, they decided to give us the ol' "MOTU Sandwich" to try and spread out exposure (and profits), while at the same time minimizing the damage if either one isn't well-received. Revelation Part 1 first, that way if people don't like it there's the full-on reboot coming down the pike, and if they DO like it, then "Guess what? There's more to come!" Likewise, if the CGI reboot doesn't land and people think it's too different from the "real" MOTU, then "Well, there's more Revelation coming out, and that's more in that familiar vein than not." So even if people were tepid about Part 1 but REALLY didn't like the CGI reboot, they might be more inclined to check out Part 2 of Revelation just for being a LITTLE more like "Classic MOTU". And if both shows do great then everybody wins. But in the inverse, if both shows did poorly but all ten episodes of Revelation had already aired, and THEN the reboot got a bad reaction... well then there's nowhere left to go.

What I predict is, the reboot will land with a bit of a thud (it is SO different from "real" MOTU that I just can't see it landing strong, and we all know the "New Audience of Kids" thing never, ever works) but Part 2 of Revelation will pleasantly surprise people, including some of the ones who wrote it off after Part 1. Probably not MOST of those people, but some. Most were gone the second they saw Teela's haircut but I think a few of the more even-tempered ones will be happy with the end result even if they had some doubts or reservations with Part 1.

We Shall See.

New He-Man is on Netflix now

Saw the first two episodes and...yeah, it has it's kinks, but I thought it went well. Bryan Q. Miller wrote them and he's one of my favourite comic/television writers.

Duncan's a bit anxious/overly quippy and nothing like Man-At-Arms, Teela has a phobia of cats (which they seem to forget about it almost as soon as the action kicks in), and Krass is the kind of friend Adam's rarely had in adaptations, someone who actually listens to him and understands his anxieties . Adam
isn't defined by He-Man's power and actually shows a lot of bravery on his own. Teela's also surprisingly nicer than usual too.

Keldor/Skeletor gets to kill a lot of people as well.

My apologies if it's already been mentioned, but has the release date been announced for Revelation's second set of episodes? For some reason I thought they were coming out the same day as the new CGI series.

Oh, I seem to have been asleep, they brought it forward? I hope that holiday is Thanksgiving cause Christmas is practically January anyway.

Having just finished the new show...yeah, colour me impressed. There weren't many episodes, I think the show could have benefited from a few more, but that meant there was no real 'filler' either and the serialization was great. Randor and Adam had a brief but satisfying arc, and they took the changes to Orko and weaved yet another heartwarming and sympathetic take on the character.

They clearly have a plan for more, and I hope they get them

Because it doesn't have the same type of hate marketing as the last one, I'llgive this more of a chance out of the gate, even if it is in name only. But also I think someone said it has a Turtles Forever writer on it? so chances are it could be good.

IM about halfway though the new series. They went, they did their own thing using some familiar names and themes, updated for the current tropes that are out there without the 'tough female' character being completely unlikable. All around? The CG show so far is good as the show goes.

It helps that it didn't start in a bed of lies, with an unlikable lead.
