One perfect issue: Thunderbolts #1

Some might feel going a bit too far calling this "Perfect" but to me, it is. It's an issue famous for its final page, of course, but to me, the reason that works is what came before it. It's a product of its time and something I truly and honestly believe just can't work again. If that's not perfection, I don't know… » 4/01/15 2:09pm 13 minutes ago

Community and "How Much Gay" Dean

So the Dean has 2/7ths come out. And I need to watch Karate Kid again. And Chang actually had something to do! This episode was not as great as the past three were. It felt a bit more disconnected. It was weird though, the humor was through the roof! Maybe I ate some sociopathic brain and I'm just not feeling much… » 4/01/15 12:50pm Today 12:50pm

They Should Intro Jesse Quick on the CW's The Flash

I love Jesse Quick. She's smart, capable (runs her own business) and is a legacy hero in her own right from a separate line of speedsters (the Quicks) that often intersect with the Flashes. Her father Johnny Quick gained super speed by saying (visualizing) a "speed" formula and she inherited it. Her mother was… » 4/01/15 6:35am Today 6:35am

Climate change implicated in dragon reemergence

A new study released in Nature today synthesizes a several centuries worth of historical data relating to textual evidence of dragon presence. Alarmingly, there appears to be a direct association with increasing mean global temperatures. While I am not entirely convinced by the authors' conclusions (a quantitative… » 4/01/15 12:33am Today 12:33am

What Are Some Good YA SF/Fantasy Novels?

Generally, I'm leery of YA fiction, because I am what is known colloquially as "a grown-ass man." But Charles N. Brown, the late Editor-In-Chief of Locus, a publication I hold in the highest esteem, apparently preferred YA novels over most other types of fiction during the last years of his life. And I just read a… » 3/31/15 11:57pm Yesterday 11:57pm

A History of Marvel Crossovers: The Golden Age

Pretty soon, Marvel will be putting out the crossover-to-end-all-crossovers, Secret Wars. And with it, the current Marvel Universe will come to an end. But this isn't the first Secret Wars (heck, it isn't even the second). In fact, Marvel has been having crossovers since the Golden Age of Comics. » 3/31/15 10:42pm Yesterday 10:42pm

Avenged (aka Savaged) - Must See Revenge Horror

At it's heart Avenged (aka Savaged) is a revenge film. In reality it's a supernatural horror film with a considerable amount of action. Had it been a war movie no one would say it's a horror film just because of the violence, but because it involves spirit possession, a reanimated corpse and a lot of internal… » 3/31/15 7:27pm Yesterday 7:27pm
