Comic Issues #129 – Ready? Fight!

Comic Issues #129 – Ready? Fight!

Maybe they haven’t quite recovered from Comic-Con yet, but the podcast crew is really grumpy today. Anthony’s glaring at everybody, Andrew’s bringing up forbidden topics, and Elizabeth’s just plain starting trouble. It’s a battle of wills, a clash of Titans! Or maybe that’s just the Batman vs. Superman movie.

Join our rage-filled heroes and heroine as they argue, rant, and still manage to laugh while speculating about the upcoming DC movies and what we could expect from a Flash or Wonder Woman film. Along the way they also discuss Comic-Con food, proper footwear, and how to escape a recording studio before someone flips a table.

Spotted at Con: Aaron Alexovich and Serenity Rose

One of the greatest moments of any comic convention is turning a corner and bumping into the person who created something you love. That jaw-dropping moment where you blink and say: “It’s you! You made that awesome thing! And you’re right here!” And that’s exactly what happened at San Diego Comic-Con when I dodged a crowd of cosplayers and came face to face with Aaron Alexovich, creator of the webcomic Serenity Rose.

If you’re not reading this comic already, you absolutely should. Don’t worry, I’ve got links.

Comic Issues #127 – Guest Starring Young Justice

Comic-Con 2013 begins tomorrow! And as if that wasn’t enough, tomorrow is also the premiere of the highly-anticipated fan-made web series Young Justice: Abduction.

Join our heroes and heroine and their special guest, writer and actor Colin Bass, as they talk about the thrills and perils of creating your own web series. Andrew gets to geek out with a fellow Power Ranger fan, Colin gets shot at, Elizabeth gets a new name, and Anthony gets run down like a dog in the street. (One of those is probably an exaggeration.)

[Review] Much Ado About Nothing

After the bigger-than-life superheroes of Avengers, the vampires of Buffy, and the spaceships of Firefly, it’s definitely a head-trip to watch a Joss Whedon movie about a 400 year old play. But it’s a good head-trip, one that you need to go experience.

Yes, I know it’s Shakespeare. You’ll like it. And you’ll understand it, I promise.

Return of Ten Books, A Thousand Pages: Part One

Return of Ten Books, A Thousand Pages: Part One

I don’t want to run a halfway decent idea into the ground, but I had so much fun with the “Ten Books, A Thousand Pages” project (Part One is here, and Part Two here) that I had to do it again. So I present The Return of Ten Books, A Thousand Pages, wherein I pick ten science fiction or fantasy books from the front-and-center display of the bookstore and read the first 100 pages of each to see if it’s something you (or I) would want to finish reading.

The idea is to do a quick and dirty review of the books that are going to be in your face the next time you’re out shopping or browsing the Recommended Reading sections online. And honestly, if a book can’t capture your attention in a hundred pages, I think it’s safe to find something you might like better.

Doctor Who Press Conference with Steven Moffat

Doctor Who returned to the BBC this past Saturday with a brand new episode, The Bells of Saint John, and a brand new companion, Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.

Last week the BBC held a press conference with writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, to answer questions about Doctor Who in general and this new season in particular. Moffat was, as usual, very witty and engaging, giving reporters little tidbits about future episodes, without giving too much away about the upcoming adventures of the Eleventh Doctor and his mysterious new companion.
