For the kids (as well as the kid in ALL of us), there's a new Marvel site, appropriately called "Marvel Kids." Up now is the first in a series (I guess) of computer animated Iron Man shorts. The idea reminds me of the Superman videos produced close to 10 years ago by DC. Man, those things took for-EVER to download on a dial-up connection. Glad we live in the high-speed world!
Check out the Iron Man vid, as well as a preview of yet ANOTHER Spider-Man 'toon in the videos section of Marvel Kids.
And, for any parents who may be reading this, click here to go directly to the parents' section of the website. Good of Marvel to include it, I think.
Having checked out the sneak peek at Marvel's new Hulk series at Comic Book Resources, I'm fairly interested in what I see, even though the whole "Red Hulk" thing has "gimmick" written all over it. From the short article: "Superstars Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness will change the way you see the Hulk!" Let's hope this isn't just an allusion to the obvious. You can see the preview pages here.
