If you missed last week’s episode of Batman: Brave and the Bold like I did, then you missed “Space Safari,” a shockingly accurate tribute to the old Hanna Barbera Space Ghost cartoons, and a short where Space Ghost teams up with Batman. It’s awesome. You know, the world is going to be a poorer place without Brave and the Bold in it. The fact that they’re replacing it with this… thing is grievous insult to already grievous injury.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
