Strong Female Protagonist is one of the best webcomics around. The struggles of Alison Green, current college student and former Guardian, are enjoyable even for people who don’t typically get into superhero comics. Now Book Two of the collected comic has almost tripled its goal on Kickstarter within a couple days of going live.
When I first read The Handmaid’s Tale, I marveled at the mental acrobatics of the ruling class that allowed them to treat Offred and the other Handmaidens as they did. Now, watching Margaret Atwood’s novel come to life on Hulu, it feels ominously possible.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock in the Dark Dimension (actually, even there) you’ve heard the news: Captain America, beloved hero and all-around good guy, is Hydra in the current story line. At C2E2 this weekend I had a chance to read an advance copy of Secret Empire #1 and… well, you know what site […]
Rise of the Chosen is that very rare and beautiful thing: a Young Adult novel that doesn’t assume young adults only want to read about tormented romance. It’s a compelling story and a promising start to Anna Kopp’s Lifeblood series. Still, I have a fear about the adorable queer romance we’re given as Sam […]
Have you heard of the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen? Do you like doing good deeds while wearing improbable amounts of produce? Well, get ready to get kind because The Geekiary is giving away a pair of invites for this year’s Gishwhes! This year’s hunt takes place from August 5-August 12. You […]
When I got this review copy of Amberlough in the mail, I was immediately interested. Sexy 20s style cover art? A dashing playboy spy trying to save his smuggler lover? Yes, please! For the first third of this book I was enjoying a story that was bright but gritty, fast but deep, and full of flawed […]
When I heard they were making a new Power Rangers movie, I wasn’t interested. (This is coming from someone who was dressing up as a ranger into her teens, too.) Then last week’s announcement that the Power Rangers movie featured a canon LGTBQ+ Yellow Ranger got me excited about seeing it (word up for confused queer […]
Power Rangers hasn’t exactly been known for being LGBTQ+ friendly. You might remember how David Yost was driven off the original US show by homophobic slurs from producers and crew. The upcoming movie hopes to change that record with the first gay superhero in a major Hollywood movie: the Yellow Ranger, Trini.
You know that dark, ultra-grim feel the DCU keeps missing horribly? Fox hits it right in the eye with Logan. This is a comic book movie that even people who aren’t super into comics will like. It’s intense, emotional, and so personal it hurts in the best way.
For the past couple of years I’ve gone to San Diego Comic Con as the guest of a professional friend, a New Zealand native who works in the film industry. We’ll call her Carrie. Two days ago I got this message: “I’m starting to worry about traveling to the States. I’ve seen a couple of […]
