Monthly Super Saturday Mega-Cartoon Mayhem!

Marvel’s latest movie opened yesterday: Thor. Today is also Free Comic Book Day! Go to your local comic book store and receive a specially-printed free comic book. So in honour, here are some Marvel’s weaker attempts at bringing their creations to life.

The Marvel Super Heroes (1966)

The Incredible Hulk Returns (1988)

Avengers: United They Stand (1999) – Thor, Captain America and Iron Man only appear at the end of the opening credits for no real reason. The show featured Ant Man, Wasp, Wonder Man, Tigra, Hawkeye, and Scarlet Witch wearing battle suits complete with power up sequences.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
