Go Pick Up Immortal Hulk #5 and Thank Me Later Go Pick Up Immortal Hulk #5 and Thank Me Later

I don’t have time to get into it right now, but trust me. I’ve been curious about where Immortal Hulk was going since it debuted, and I love puny Banner and Hulk enough to go along in good faith. Chapter Five did not disappoint.

'Amazing Spider-Man' #1 (802) is a Muddled Mess 'Amazing Spider-Man' #1 (802) is a Muddled Mess

On SOLO and Failing the Bechdel Test  On SOLO and Failing the Bechdel Test 

SOLO’s first weekend returns are being called disappointing, despite the fact that it’s cleared over $100M domestically. I’m not here to talk about that. I want to talk about how two truly interesting women couldn’t find anything to talk about besides Boys.

'Ready Player One' Serves Up a Smorgasbord of Nostalgia with 1-D Characters and Paint-By-Numbers Plot 'Ready Player One' Serves Up a Smorgasbord of Nostalgia with 1-D Characters and Paint-By-Numbers Plot

Since that first glimpse, I’ve been psyched to see Ready Player One. The trailer looked amazing. And to the movie’s credit, the movie delivered on those stunning visuals... It just let us down in a lot of other areas that mattered.

Altered Carbon is the Future of Scifi Television Altered Carbon is the Future of Scifi Television

I’m two episodes in to Laeta Kalogridis’ amazing new series on Netflix, and I’m already amazed. Altered Carbon is what Scifi TV should aspire to. (Yes, specifically TV.) Strap in, it’s time to talk shop. No Spoilers.

Anyone Up to Read a Script? Anyone Up to Read a Script?

My Nerds, I’ve recently finished a pair of projects: a horror script and a horror pilot. I’m looking for beta readers, folks wanting to take a look and provide some feedback.

A Question About Force Ghosts A Question About Force Ghosts

A question has been bugging me for some time. Actually, make that a pair of questions, and there’s no clear answer in the movies (so far). I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Things That Bugged the Hell Out of Me in The Last Jedi  Things That Bugged the Hell Out of Me in The Last Jedi 

While I thoroughly enjoyed The Last Jedi (enough to see it twice), there are things that went un-addressed in the film that I want to shed some light on. Things that bugged the hell out of me. Spoilers below.

On the Holidays On the Holidays

There’s enormous pressure over the holidays to feel warmth, affection and joy. A great deal of bitterness can result if you don’t... as if there’s something wrong with you. I’m here to tell you that’s okay.

Batman Annual #02 is a Charming, Bittersweet Fairy Tale Batman Annual #02 is a Charming, Bittersweet Fairy Tale

Tom King’s broad strokes approach to the Dark Knight has been one of the best parts of his run on Batman. He adheres to the spirit if not the letter of the canon and has managed to finally bring Batman and Catwoman together in a realistic, satisfying way. The Annual is simply divine.

X-Men Gold #16 Asks A Bigot The Only Question That Matters  X-Men Gold #16 Asks A Bigot The Only Question That Matters 

The Mutant Dilemma in Marvel Comics has evolved over the years but has never strayed far from its course. Mutants are Different, and ordinary humans hate them. In X-Men Gold’s latest issue, Kitty Pryde finally asks someone why.

Does Runaways Work on TV? Does Runaways Work on TV?

The first three episodes of the live action series Runaways have premiered on Hulu. After seeing all three, I’m still wondering if Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s comic book series works on TV. Evidence suggests it doesn’t.

Inspired by the challenge io9 published a few weeks ago, I wrote (and finally got around to recording) a ghost story in verse. Enjoy!

On Problematic Favorites and the Work of Fallen Idols On Problematic Favorites and the Work of Fallen Idols

When a notion keeps popping into my head, the only solution is to write about it. I respect it if you don’t want to hear any more about Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, or any of the others wrapped up in scandal. That’s okay. Just stop reading.
