TONIGHT: Japan vs. U.S. in first ever Giant Robot Duel.

That sounds cool.

Action Lad will Lose. His. Mind.

Murder-Suicide Over Shinto Shrine Succession   Not sure how this is supposed to please the kami.

From Diamond’s August Previews catalogue (p. 433):

APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL:

“Discover the myth of the worldwide music sensation BABYMETAL. Tasked with defeating the forces of darkness and division, the metal spirits must travel through a variety of eras of time, assuming different forms and identities. What we are seeing is not the BABYMETAL of the present. It’s an original story based on BABYMETAL as you’ve never heard them before. The long-hidden metal spirit’s apocrypha of the Metal Resistance will emerge!”

Sounds as if they’re trying to emulate Kiss’s success with comics. This is 144 pages, b&w, softcover, but I’m not certain if it’s sequential art or illustrated prose. (The solicitation says “prose book” but the interview with the artist describes it as a “graphic novel.”) Solicited for October 17 release. $25.

Interesting.  I have two of their albums, they're not bad.
