    Another twelve minutes of "highlights" of Mewes' Twitch stream at The Stash, also featuring Kev, Josh Roush (of Hollywood Babble-On tech support fame) and even a cameo by Mike Zapcic:

    Kev is at the SModCastle and Marc in California for another bi-coastal edition of Fatman Beyond:

    There are, as usual, several minutes of livestream waiting time before the content starts at 5:55 minutes. Unless the team edits the video in the near future. Also, the Jeff's Kiss t-shirts are finally available.

    The announcement Kev teased in the past weekend's Fatman Beyond is out, and it's what was to be expected.

    Lionsgate Takes Global Rights To Kevin Smith's 'Clerks III' | Deadline

    EXCLUSIVE: Lionsgate has acquired worldwide rights to Kevin Smith’s Clerks III, which is in pre-production in New Jersey and will begin production next month.


    Smith has written the screenplay and will direct, with all major cast members from the first two Clerks films set to reprise their roles: Jeff Anderson as Randal, Brian O’Halloran as Dante, Jay Mewes as Jay, Smith as Silent Bob, and Rosario Dawson as Becky. The film will be produced by Liz Destro and Jordan Monsanto.

    In Clerks III, following a massive heart attack, Randal enlists Dante, Elias, Jay and Silent Bob to make a movie immortalizing his life at the convenience store that started it all.

    Smith said, “There’s a saying from the Tao that goes something like ‘To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return.’ Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to return to where it all started with almost the whole cast that started it all! And for the first time since the first time we ever made a movie in 1993, we’re shooting the entire flick on location in New Jersey, as an ode to both the enduring allure of cinema and the resourcefulness and lunacy of its storytellers. Years ago, Dante and Randal made me a filmmaker – so now it’s time I return the favor.”

    While the article doesn't list him, though they mention his character in the synopsis, Trevor Fehrman will reprise his Clerks II-role of Elias Grover.

    Mike & Ming did another I Sell Comics video podcast, and none other than Kev himself stopped by:

    Sidenote: I can't believe they still have "weekly" in their logo.

    Kev and - filling in for busy Marc - Orko voice actor Griffin Newman do a "He-Man Beyond" version of Fatman Beyond from SmodCastle:

    Kev took a break from promoting MotU, reeling with MotU backlash, and pre-production for Clerks 3, to do play his fourth match in the Movie Trivia Schmoedown, which was part of the Collision IV event.
    As his was the third of four matches in the event, plus a lengthy pre-show, I took the liberty of time-coding the embedded video to the start of his match - if you want to see the whole five hour event, you can just jump back to the beginning.
    Kev's opponent is Marisol McKee, and she's certainly one of the top-tier components in the Schmoedown, so this one will be Kev's biggest challenge yet:

    If you stare at this video long enough, you're supposed to see some kinda hidden Scene Study:

    I guess pre-recording scene study intros was Kev's idea to keep the YouTube channel busy while he's busy himself shooting in New Jersey. This week, we look at the Wile E. Coyote tribute from Mallrats:


    Also, belated Happy Birthday to Kev!

    Another Mallrats Scene Study:


    Looking through the comment section, some bitter He-Man fans are still there, but it's mostly the good-hearted fanbase of Kev's that is back.
    There was even some trolling of the haters going on, my favorite comment being:

    "God I know. These mouth breathers are more predictable than a ... well an old He-Man ep... go figure. ;)"

    No Fatman Beyond these days? I know Kev is busy but there's always Blackman Beyond and the Snyder Cut review with Marc.
    Maybe they are waiting for things to die down with the whole He-Man thing?

    Yeah, I'm wondering about that, myself. The Scum & Villainy has now also become the main location for live matches of the Movie Trivia Schmoedown, but those aren't often enough to cause scheduling trouble. More likely, Marc's just busy working on his day-job as a TV writer and/or pre-production of his short film.

    It's that time of the week again, so here is the next Scene Study, sticking with Mallrats, the Fantastic appearance of the Amazing Stan Lee:
