Recurrent Events Update: Netflix 'GLOW' Set Pics, G.I. Joe 3 Cancelled, Journey Rock Hall Induction

Welcome to the Recurrent Events weekly news update for retro pop culture headlines, links, videos, and more. It was a busy week for me personally so didn't get to do much as far as articles, but that's all the more reason to check out everything in the retro community below!

As my love and interest for retro cartoons keeps on growing, I wanted to pass along another Tumblr I setup quite awhile back called Animazeballs. While I'll still be posting G.I. Joe images to GIJoeIsThere, the Animazeballs blog will be for practically everything else. I've already posted a few panoramas include the Castle of Lions from Voltron, the Tiger Sharks team, and Spidey and the X-men from Spider-man and His Amazing Friends. If you are not on Tumblr, you can also now follow Animazeballs on Twitter.

Here's are some new RD80s articles posted this week in case you missed them:

Thanks to Den of Geek, I stumbled onto this mini-doc on the 30th anniversary of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!
