Earthworm Jim is BACK… and he’s got a book!

So not only is Earthworm Jim comic to back with a new game for the new Intellivision Amico; we’ve got a graphic novel telling the origins of the character!
“Overview

Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told. I’m not only the creator of Earthworm Jim, but I’ve spent the last 20 years making 18 graphic novels! I’ve spent a long time writing the epic of Earthworm Jim, and this first book will be on how Jim became Jim! Who made the super suit? Why is he launching cows?! I’m calling out to EWJ fans to help make this epic happen NOW!

comikazeconlogoFirst off, we at Retrenders love providing solid content and quality video content on our YouTube channel, but we had a slight delay and like to apologize for the dark video quality.  We were shooting on our Sony V1U and left the ND Filter on and that’s a “not bad” on our part.  Lesson learned and that will never happen again.

Okay, got that off my chest!  Here’s the jam packed episode from Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2015 from the LA Convention Center on Halloween weekend.  Our Ramen crew explores the growing and ever expanding Comikaze Expo.  The Eddie and Ramon takes around the convention floor.  So sit back and grab some chocolate gummy bears and enjoy the episode.
