First, our own Todd Doogan has his weekly Doogan’s Queue column up now on The Bits featuring a rundown of all the great new Blu-ray and DVD titles newly available on Amazon and in stores today. Do check it out.
Also, the good Dr. Jahnke has posted a new installment of his Burnt Offerings: MOD DVD column looking at the latest from Warner Archive and the 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives, as well as details of Warner Archive’s panels and events at the WonderCon convention in Anaheim this weekend.

You’ll find Fox’s preliminary cover art below. [Read on here...]
