The Thirteenth Hour Podcast #326: Toymaking Updates, Watching The Crow Part 2, and Reading The Howard the Duck Movie Novelization Part 13

This week, we’re discussing new toymaking updates, reading the next section of the Howard the Duck novelization, and watching and discussing the second part of the 1994 film, The Crow.  

Toymaking stuff first: I have a handful of Logan and Aurora 5 POA Kenner-style action figures that are ready for priming, painting, and final touches:


We are are reading the next section of the Howard the Duck from the movie novelization.


Then, we are wrapping up talking about The Crow:

As mentioned in the episode, the score by Graeme Revell provides a haunting backdrop to the film that sets the tone perfectly.  You can find both the regular and deluxe editions on Youtube:

Although I believe there was a Crow skin you could download for the game Max Payne (which was very Crow-like in many ways), there were not video games made of the first film.  There was one made of the sequel, though.  Check out the hilarious AVGN review. 


If you want to stay within the world of the first film, checking out the TV series, which is different from the film in some ways, is not a bad way to do it.  The first episode is basically a retelling of the film with some adaptations to make the series continue.

Thanks for listening!
