Interview: Voice Actor Steve Blum
  |  @   |  

If you’ve watch any cartoons produced in the last 20 years, you’ve probably heard the voice of Steve Blum. Blum has over 400 titles to his credit on his IMDb page. He is widely known to a generation of anime fans as the voice of Spike Speigel in Cowboy Bebop, and is just as widely known (if not more so) as the voice of Wolverine in basically any TV show or video game since X-Men Evolution. And this is just a small sampling of the different characters Blum has played over the years. You can currently hear him as the voice of Starscream in Transformers: Prime, or as the voice of Grayson Hunt in Bulletstorm, along with still playing Wolverine on Marvel’s Super Hero Squad and in Marvel Vs Capcom 3. I was able to talk to Blum for a few minutes to learn how he got started, what it’s like to be a professional voice actor, and much more.

DVD Review: Wolverine and the X-Men Vol. 5 & 6

Wolverine and the X-Men
Vol. 5: Revelations
Vol. 6: Final Crisis Trilogy
Featuring the voices of Steve Blum, Jennifer Hale, Tom Kane
Release Date: May 4/August 17, 2010

Wolverine and the X-Men: Revelations and The Final Crisis Trilogy wraps up the popular Nickelodeon series from Craig Kyle and Greg Johnson (creators of X-Men: Evolution). After a surprise attack on the Xavier School, The X-Men team is left in pieces. Professor X, the team’s leader and mentor is in a coma and Jean Grey is presumed dead, sending Cyclops into a tailspin. With the team unofficially disbanded, it is up to Wolverine to pick up the pieces and bring the team back together.

These two DVDs tie up all the plot threads left dangling from the series, answering all the important burning questions. Who really attacked the X-Men? Will Professor X finally escape the future and return to his body in the past? Is Jean Grey alive? Does Wolverine have a chance to save the Earth from an apocalyptic future, where all man and mutant kind are exterminated? All these questions are addressed and more, plus there are more mutant appearances than you can shake a stick at. Everyone from Magneto, Gambit, and Scarlet Witch to the Hellfire Club are all present, along Cyclops, Storm, and everyone’s favorite Canuck, Wolverine.

DVD Review: Wolverine and The X-Men, Vol. 4: Fate of the Future

Wolverine and the X-Men, Vol. 4: Fate of the Future
Featuring the voices of Steve Blum, Jennifer Hale, Tom Kane
Release Date: February 2, 2010

While it is especially satisfying to find an episodic cartoon that is a cut above the rest and rises above the genre itself, there is nothing wrong with a simple kid’s cartoon that hits all the right entertaining beats. This is exactly what the Wolverine and The X-Men Vol. 4 delivers.

For those who have just joined the ride, Wolvie and the X-Men is the continuing story of an alternate X-Men universe. This world is not exactly “world turned upside down” different, but the subtle changes, along with the additions of some of the details from the comic and movie version gives this an almost Elseworlds type of feel.

‘Jonah Hex’ Motion Comic Now Available!

With the upcoming Jonah Hex live- action film (out in theaters on June 18) starring Josh Brolin and Megan Fox, it seems like the perfect time to visit some adventures from Mr. Hex’s past. Warner Premiere believes the best way to do that is to buy their 8th motion comic, Jonah Hex Motion Comics.

Based on the comics written by John Albano and drawn by Tony DeZuniga, these new Jonah Hex Motion Comics are perfect for all you western lovers out there. If you recall, Warner Premiere is the same company that brought us both the Batman: Black and White and Watchmen Motion Comics series.

Over the course of 7 episodes, which will lead up to the theatrical release, the Motion Comics specifically cover three archival stories from Jonah Hex’s comics past. The first five episodes are adapted from the graphic novel Two Gun Mojo, which features Jonah Hex seeking justice and revenge against Doc Williams and his gang over a murdered friend. The other two stories are taken from the 1970’s comics The Gunfighter and The Hangin’ Woman. Viewers should be aware these stories are re-colored and animated for the first time.
