I can not get over how well the Herculoids series have stood up over time. I watch it every chance I get (it drives my wife crazy)! The art work is still wonderful and fantastic. The stories are full of action and (the real reason it works) it's short stories of good over evil are quite compelling. I went to the 2008 Comic-Con with my son (who is an illustrator) and did not see the Herculoids represented at all. This series deserves major front burner attention. For such a short plot line it's got all the stuff to make it to the big screen. A strong family theme mixed with self reliance and Dorno's sense of responsibility taught by his farther Zandor. Yeah it has a little Tarzan twist to it's flow but that's why it works, keep it simple stupid ! Zandor seems to understand the line between what machinery and technology can and can't do for you. Even though he is surrounded by it he is not a slave to it and prefers his and his family simple life in the Forrest of Amzot. I would love to see The Herculoids adapted for the big screen. Just imagine a live action seen with Igoo (The Rock Ape) pounding his metal foe into the ground. Hulk, Iron Man, Batman watch your back. The Herculoids are the next sleeping Si-Fi giant ! ! !
