Binary System Podcast #85 – The Night Vale catch-up episode (…part 1)

Binary System Podcast is back on schedule! Mostly! A little? Okay, not at all, because we’re way behind on our Night Vale Recaps. So this week you get two for one! Listen in as we race through Night Vale episodes #108 (“Cal”) and #109 (“A Story about Huntokar”) in 20 minutes and still manage to fit in some thoughts on The Originals, American Gods, Moana, and Twin Peaks!

Review – Aquaman #25, art by Stjepan Sejic

Review – Aquaman #25, art by Stjepan Sejic

I have never consistently read an Aquaman book. I’ve got nothing against the character, I just wasn’t interested in him. But I knew Dan Abnett (the writer behind….look just go look at his wiki page, dude’s written everything you like) was writing it, and I knew I should give it a look. And then I heard Stjepan Sejic (Sunstone, Switch, a freaking gorgeous deviantart page) (lightly NSFW link there) had the art, and I threw money in their direction, sight-unseen. I’m incredibly biased when it comes to Stjepan, so rather than a review, see below for a lot of incoherent hyperventilating. This issue is gorgeous.

2017 Hugo Awards – The Novelettes

2017 Hugo Awards – The Novelettes

Hands up, anyone who knows the difference between a novelette and a novella. Anyone? Okay, a novelette is a work of fiction that clocks in at anywhere from 7500 – 17500 words; basically it longer than a short-story but shorter than a novella. Everyone take notes because there’ll be a test later.

This year the Hugo novelette division features six very strong entries (well, five, and one that wins for humor at least), covering the range from Partly Sci-Fi to Mostly Fantasy to whatever category you want to attach to Stix Hiscock’s story. Click the jump for a brief review of the Hugo 2017 nominees for Best Novelette.

Binary System – The Batman Tribute Edition of “Our Favorite DeviantArtists”

Binary System – The Batman Tribute Edition of “Our Favorite DeviantArtists”

Binary System Podcast has ONCE AGAIN been on the road this week (promise, folks, things will settle down soon. Probably just in time for San Diego Comic-Con to throw everything askew.) So instead of a podcast, this week we’re doing another post where we scroll through DeviantArt and look at all our favorite pieces. It’s a tough job, but we’ll do it for you, our loyal and devoted fans. All five of you.

We lost another one of our icons this month. Do a Batusi or two in honor of Adam West, and enjoy some Batman art from some of our favorite DeviantArtists.

Review: 2017 Hugo Award Finalists – The Short Stories

Okay, it’s time to buckle down and start trying to see how many of this year’s Hugo Nominees we can review before the awards are given on August 11. Everyone who reads this column probably knows by now that I’m really fond of short stories, so let’s start with those. Click the jump for a short (naturally, right?) review of each of the finalists for Best Short Stories.

Preview and Review – Optimus Prime #8

Preview and Review – Optimus Prime #8

Jazz has a chance to tell his story to the press, which is maybe not the best idea but you have to admire his principles. Jetfire gets to talk to the friend who beat him up for being a sellout, which is a slightly better idea but is still pretty dicey. And Optimus finds out that “keeping your friends close” isn’t a good idea when one of them is a murderer.

See below for preview pages and a review of Optimus Prime #8.
