  • Star Trek Is Boldly Going Back to TV

    Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the beloved franchise, Star Trek will be returning to the small screen in 2017! Says David Stapf, President of CBS Television Studios: There is no better time to give Star Trek fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration. Everyone here […]

  • “A Thousand Nights”: AKA How to Do a Retelling Right

    YES. Take notes, everyone, because this book right here is how to do a retelling. This is the kind of quality I was expecting with A Whole New World, and where that book failed, A Thousand Nights delivers. Taking a story like Scheherazade and her One Thousand and One Nights, which has been told and retold so many times […]

  • “Black Widow: Forever Red” Needs More Black Widow

    It seems unfair of me to review a book based on expectations, but I was at the Women of Marvel panel at last year’s New York Comic Con when they announced that there would be a Black Widow YA novel, and I feel that it was misrepresented. When I first heard about it, I assumed […]

  • [adult swim] at NYCC: Robot Chicken

    Can you believe Robot Chicken is coming back for an eighth season? Neither can the writers, most of whom assumed that their season 1 skit about being cancelled would come true.

Although they were at New York Comic Con promoting their new 30-minute, live action, Adult Swim miniseries, the cast were frustratingly tight-lipped about what we can expect. The show started as a joke by […]

  • ‘The Expanse’ Press Roundtables New York Comic Con 2015

    Two hundred years in the future, humankind has colonized the galaxy. This is where we join the cast of The Expanse, a new space noir on Syfy. Based on the best-selling books by James S. A. Corey, a diverse cast of characters take us into a story rife with mystery and political intrigue that all centers […]

  • “The Rest of Us Just Live Here” Is a Story for the Rest of Us

    Have you ever wondered what it was like to attend Hogwarts and not be Harry Potter? You’re just trying to go to class and learn magic and not think about the fact that students are randomly getting Petrified, because you’re only twelve or whatever and it’s clearly not your responsibility to figure out what’s going […]

  • “Zeroes”: Not Your Average Superhero Story

    Every power has a price. So says the cover of Zeroes, the combined effort of authors Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti. Zeroes tells the story of a group of six teenagers with special powers – but don’t call them heroes, because they’re not. Their powers are slightly unorthodox (you won’t find anyone who can fly or […]
