Bryce Reviews: Gadget in Chains - June 15, 2011 by Bryce
Gadget in Pain: A Review of Loneheart’s Angsty Epic, Gadget in Chains

By: Bryce
 
Wherefore Gadget in Chains?

 For my first fanfic review, I’m going to analyze Loneheart’s Gadget in Chains. Why choose this particular fanfic? Because I hate it. It embodies everything that is wrong with angsty fanfiction driven by its appeal to the author’s own perverted mind, and yet it is undoubtedly the pinnacle of its art. Gadget in Chains is a work of dark and twisted genius, from which one cannot easily look away. One admires it against the protestations of the conscience, sort of like Riefenstahl’s Triumph des Willens.

 

One of the first things you will notice about Gadget in Chains is that it is long. Really, really long. In fact, it’s almost twice as long as Moby-Dick, or over four times as long as Moby-Dick.

 

The Man Behind the Madness

 

Gadget in Chains is the magnum opus of Loneheart, supposedly an unpublished writer turned calling center employee. I don’t know if that’s a factual biography or not, but he’s undoubtedly the Adolf Wölfli of Rescue Rangers fanfiction. It took seven years to write Gadget in Chains; you can read it on fanfiction.net in a somewhat shorter period of time.

Alternately, on the Acorn Cafe you can find a version edited to comply with their restrictions on content. This version is much more succinct and has a good bit less in the way of fan (dis)service, you can get a copy here.

As mentioned previously, the contents seem to be largely dictated by appeal to the writer and it gets rather repetitive. One could be forgiven for thinking that the work was an attempt to refine prose descriptions of Gadget being strip-searched or beaten to high art. I’ll be honest, just reading some of this made me really uncomfortable. For the sake of brevity, and also because this is an illustrated review and I’d rather dislike earning myself a spot on a certain particularly infamous Encyclopedia Dramatica article, I’m going to skip most of that.

 

Still, Gadget is on the receiving end of so much suffering in this story that one gets the impression that the author originally meant to write a much shorter story, Gadget in Pains, wherein the titular mouse gets stuck on a glue board and must gnaw off her own leg to escape (and, probably, her clothing as well, since this is Loneheart we’re talking about), but then he saw The Shawshank Redemption.

Speaking of which, Gadget in Chains is laden with references to prison movies and literature; for example it has a lot more in common with Les Misérables than just the obvious facts that Gadget and Jean Valjean share a prisoner number and that both books are really long. This is by no means a bad thing; in fact, finding references was probably the most fun I had reading it. Then again, that’s probably just the kind of person I am.

BOOM! CDRR Comics Cancelled - June 5, 2011 by Ducky

In case you missed the forum post, CnDO member Malicia MaCawber has informed us that BOOM! will not continue to publish the Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers comics, ending the series with issue #8.


This is a sad day for Rescue Rangers fans, who had been treated to their first taste of fresh original official CDRR content since the TV series was cancelled back in the early 90s.

 

The only mention of this on the BOOM! studios website is in the forums, where a subscriber asked why CDRR was absent from the titles scheduled to be shipping in August 2011.  The reason given was  that issue #8 was to be the last issue “for the time being,” and that there were no plans to continue the series.  There has yet to be an official announcement explaining why the series was cancelled; all we know is that it will be replaced by the DuckTales comic in their publishing schedule.

 

Rescue Rangers #7 Cover A

 

 In other news, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers issue #7 is now available… better pick it up while you still can, before the CDRR comics are out of print.

BOOM! no longer publishing classic Disney comics? - April 21, 2011 by Ducky

Donald Duck and Friends

According to the UK entertainment website Digital Spy, BOOM! Studios may no longer be publishing comics based on classic Disney licenses such as Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Uncle Scrooge.

 

A listing of upcoming issues in the Diamond Comic Distributors Previews catalog for July suggests that BOOM! will continue to publish other Disney titles such as Darkwing Duck and Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers. 

 

 

So far these are unconfirmed rumors.  BOOM! Studios has yet to confirm or comment on this, and so far there is no mention in their official blog of the classic Disney series disappearing.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-tique - January 24, 2011 by Josh Clinton
by Josh Clinton – February 27, 2010

 

If it seems like every month Disney releases around 5-10 DVDs that target a wide range of people. You have old classics being remastered, new feature films fresh out, and various television shows getting whole seasons or a select number of episodes on DVD as well. It seems like Disney has the market cornered on almost every age group. From toddlers to older teenagers, and everything in between, there is a series of Disney DVDs for you out there. The crown jewel for the pre-school age group is Disney’s television series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I have talked about this series many times before, and yep, it’s time to talk about the latest DVD release, Minnie’s Bow-tique.

 

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-Tique is Disney’s eighth Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD that has been released. There are four 24-minute episodes that are loosely tied together by having Minnie as the central character. They all come from season two of the series, but one episode, “Minnie’s Pajama Party”, has never been aired before on television. In the main episode with the same name as this DVD, “Minnie’s Bow-Tique,” Minnie opens a new store that sells only bows. But these aren’t just ordinary bows. Some of them can do some pretty extraordinary things. Her butterfly bows can flutter and fly, and her Photo Bow can take pictures. For males, she even sells bow-ties. All is good until one day when Pete comes in looking for a bow for his aunt. Pete is a little embarrassed, and wants to remain unseen. This leads to a lot of clumsy accidents and a big mess that viewers have to help Minnie clean up. Other episodes featured on this DVD set have Minnie inviting everyone over for a pajama party, helping out a new friend Buzz Buzz The Bee find his way back to his home flower, and then setting up a picnic for everyone.
