So it’s that time of year again. Rampant commercialism, family arguments, general malaise... Or the most wonderful joyous time of year, depending on how you feel about it. Regardless, you’re probably thinking of a gift to give someone. If they’re interested in comic books, well, there are lost of great options. Let’s… »
Greetings everyone. Just in time for the holiday season, I’ve decided to bring back the Odeck Mixtape thingamabob. You can probably guess from the post title, and my amazing drawing, what the theme is going to be this time around.
Featuring my first paid translation as one of the chapter epigraphs. Y’all should check it out - from scrolling through, it looks like the author’s doing some neat stuff with making a novel that lives in the digital smartphoney age, too. »
No one else is doing a Supergirl thread and I wanna ramble about it and you can’t stop me!

Joel Hodgson has just announced who the other Mad will be: it’s the great Patton Oswalt as the son of TV’s Frank, named (what else?) TV’s Son of TV’s Frank. Also, the revival’s Kickstarter has hit $3.3 million, guaranteeing at least six episodes! (I just wonder who his mother was, since the last we saw the original… »
So, I managed to finish Mark Z. Danielewski’s The Familiar: One Rainy Day in May - Vol. 1 (TF:V1) during an intensely busy couple months of work. MZD is most famous for House of Leaves º. Since then, he has written Only Revolutions and The Fifty Year Sword (of which I’ve only read the latter; it’s deceptively simple… »
The most anticipated game ever, some say, Fallout 4 has been out a few weeks now and now that most of us have had a few weeks to play through it and maybe remember to try and beat it we can have a discussion on the game. Where we can talk about Spoilers freely and without a 140 character limit! So here are my thoughts… »
I have no idea what you all did over the Thanksgiving holiday, but I began a journey that I never thought would happen - I watched the Star Wars prequels for the first time. »
Jurassic Park could have been a completely different movie if the TRex would have taken the time to make friends with the goat like this Siberian tiger in a Russian zoo did... »
Imagine forcing a segment of the population to register with the government based solely on their personal beliefs – all because some could be terrorists. This unbelievable scenario happened in the Marvel Universe, but do you know the real story of Civil War? »
