In the preview for the new Suicide Squad: Rebirth, Amanda Waller has to justify the Squad’s existence to President Barack Obama. This, in fact, isn’t the first time she’s had to justify the team to a real President — in Secret Origins #14, the issue that came right before the Suicide Squad book was launched, she had…
Sorry for the very very late cross thread, I’ve been distracted by the DNC. Yes, ya’ll can talk politics here...but please assume most comments are made in good faith. Welcome to the very weekly pan kinja cross thread, shared out amongst Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, and
The BBC have reported that one of Mad magazine’s founding fathers, Jack Davis, has passed away, aged 91. A prolific cartoonist, he was the last surviving artist of the EC horror range and drew artwork for comics, magazines, advertising, movie posters, book illustrations and album covers.
I know there was some really ugly drama last year, and the less said about that the better... Like the esoteric ranchers say “Drama’s for llamas!”
For those of you who don’t know John Scalzi; he’s a science fiction writer of ripping yarns, a feminist and a very entertaining blogger. I find him clear thinking and bracing, and his commenters are generally intelligent and incisive. In today’s blog post, he talks about some of the reasons he’s voting for Hillary…
2016 takes another one. This time it’s Mr. Gairbaldi, Jerry Doyle.
O-Deckers with Amazon Prime Video (in the US, I am presuming?), can now enjoy streaming viewing of the show “Small Animal Hospital (with John Barrowman).” The IMDB blurb: “John Barrowman guides us when veterinarians try to cure all sorts of sick animals in Glasgow. Informative and interesting program with a warm and…
Apparently emails are a big thing now. How many email accounts do you have? Where are they? What do you use them for? Have they been hacked by Russian spies under the direction of powerful oligarchs?
It was not his love for books or inability to fight, it was actually his fashion sense. As documented in the clothes Sam unfortunately did not wear when he returned for a nice and comfy family diner with his not wife and not son. (I guess they’re saving that outfit for the Disney version of GoT.)
Panini have just reprinted one of Marvel’s best Doctor Who comics. It’s a cracker - and with so much that is right about it, the serial is also the one where everything went wrong!
And here we are with another two episodes from the SGC. The former with child labourers and destruction of artifacts and the seeing another shot up alternate reality.
Hello and welcome to the Wednesday Book Club. You may be wondering, “Who is this handsome devil, and where is Geesejuggler?” Well, she’s stuck juggling geese so I’ve been asked to fill in. Don’t look the minion in the eyes, or you will be forever lost to them.
Presuming you didn’t have enough of World Whisky Day in May, raise a glass again today - July 27 is National Scotch Day. It is a chance to celebrate the water of life as carefully and classically crafted for caleighs in Caledonia.
As one of the most influential film-makers of the last decades, Quentin Tarantino is currently still sticking to his old plan of quitting after film number ten, which would leave him just two more. So - how does one end that career? With a Suicide Squad of his worst heroes ever?
Every Batman fan knows that The Killing Joke was when Barbara Gordon was paralyzed. However, not as many know when her next alter-ego, Oracle, appeared or how she became Oracle. Since the contentious animated adaptation has brought up the book again, this seems like a good time to see how John Ostrander and Kim Yale…
Up from the midfield,
Three meters high —
I have mentioned I perform with a couple different groups - one of the most turbulent but fascinating ones is the local burlesque troupe in town that is a mix of amateurs and semi-professional performers. I really love this group because we fully embrace all body types, genders, orientations, races etc and the group…
Here is a review I didn’t really want to write, but felt compelled to. I read the commotion over it over the weekend, and let’s just say curiosity killed this cat (or duck, to keep up my shtick.) I saw the animated version of The Killing Joke on Monday at my local cinemaplex.
It’s Tuesday, I don’t want to be at work and my shoe is busted, so let’s have an open thread!! But, I do have a question for you because as I was recovering from food poisoning this weekend, crying like a baby while sitting on porcelain, I got to thinking...
