The Cuphead Show Hits Netflix Next Month, New Trailer Released

Cuphead and his trusty drink-holding brother will hit Netflix next month.  This news was announced today with the first official trailer for the series, which is called The Cuphead Show. This new trailer comes seven months after our first sneak peek at the show and as that peek indicated, The Cuphead Show will be about the titular character and his brother, Mugman, traversing the Inkwell Isles.  Click here to watch embedded media Unlike the game, which tasks players with wiping some debt owed to the Devil, it seems that the show is less about a central story such as that and more about episode-to-episode adventures that may or may not be hijacked by some devilish deeds from the Devil. However, the trailer reveals quite a few of the locales visited in Cuphead as well as many of the bosses our heroes face in the game.  “Based on the award-winning video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, The Cuphead Show is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman,” a press release from Netflix reads. “As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other’s back.”  As you might expect, the show retains the same retro style of animation as the game and it features the same 1920s-esque antics and comedy seen in it as well.  Click here to watch embedded media “The Cuphead Show combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies – espeically when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes.”  Netflix Animation is producing the 12-episode series, and each episode will run for 12 minutes. Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhaur from Studio MDHR are executive producers. The voice cast includes Tru Valentino (Psychonauts 2) as Cuphead, Frank Todaro (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) as Mugman, Joe Hanna (Dishonored 2) as Elder Kettle, Luke Millington-Drake as the Devil, Grey Griffin (Batman: Arkham City) as Ms. Chalice, and Wayne Brady (Who's Line Is It Anyway?) as King Dice.  The Cuphead Show was announced back in 2019, and you can read about that original announcement here. Check out our thoughts on the video game that the show is based on in Game Informer’s Cuphead review after that and then read about how Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, which features the same Ms. Chalice seen in The Cuphead Show, launches this June.

    179 arrested in ‘Operation DisrupTor’ dark web drug takedown

    A massive international police operation has resulted in the arrests of 179 dark web drug traffickers who sold opioids along with other illicit goods and services across Europe and the united states. The investigators section of JCODE, an FBI-led multi-agency Department of Justice initiative, caused Europol over an interval of nine months beneath the project called Operation DisrupTor.

    They started their investigation after authorities took down Wall Street Market in-may 2019, resulting in the downfall of 1 of the largest marketplaces for counterfeits and drugs on the dark web. Wall Street Market served significantly more than 1.15 million customers. Based on the Justice Department, police agencies obtained the intelligence they had a need to identify dark web drug traffickers from the Wall Street Market operation. That trigger a number of “complementary, but separate” investigations.

    Of the 179 arrests, 121 were manufactured in the united states, 42 in Germany, eight in holland, four in the united kingdom, three in Austria and something in Sweden. The DOJ expects more to check out as investigators focus on ongoing cases to recognize more online drug traffickers. Furthermore, authorities were also in a position to seize over $6.5 million in cash and virtual currencies, 63 firearms and 500 kilograms of drugs worldwide. A complete of 274 kilos of fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone, methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, Medicine and mdma containing addictive substances were seized in america.

    At the press conference announcing Operation DisrupTor, Wired says acting DEA administrator Timothy Shea specifically called out Arden McCann, who allegedly shipped large sums of fentanyl and counterfeit Xanax pills into USA from China and Canada. The operation also dismantled a drug trafficking organization called “Stealthgod” that has been associated with over 18,000 illicit drug sales to customers in america and round the global world.

    FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement:

    “With the spike in opioid-related overdose deaths through the COVID-19 pandemic, we notice that today’s announcement is timely and important. The FBI really wants to assure the American public, and the global world, that people are focused on identifying Darknet drug dealers and bringing them to justice. But our work will not end with today’s announcement. The FBI, through JCODE and our partnership with Europol, is still engaged in a combined effort to disrupt the borderless actively, worldwide trade of illicit drugs. The FBI will continue steadily to use all investigative tools and ways to identify and prosecute Darknet opioid dealers, wherever they could be located.”
