Who is Slingshot? What’s here deal with SHIELD? What was that glowing thing the bad guy had? Answers!
Advanced Muggle Studies’ latest post is up! This time, we discuss: legitimate prophecies, how to ruin a classic movie moment, dwindling bitchiness, this play making us numb to all feeling, what Scorpius named his penis, the possible Confunding of J.K. Rowling, William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, Pessimist Dumbledore…
Rogue One is by name a part of the new Star Wars anthology series but the tone and setting are anything but. Right from the get go the film does everything to set itself apart from the mainline series of films, skipping directly to the action.
Back again and we’re near the end of season six, with two of the more experimental episodes today, one that sees multiple realities and another that sees the team face no threat whatsoever.
I’ve been working on some drawings for a while. These are complete. For the most part. I have more but those are in different stages of completion.
Sorry! I’ve been sleeping like crap this week so I overslept this morning but that’s okay! We can still make this work. *Flings up a WednesdayBookClub on the O-Deck* That’ll do.
Ticket - Check. Hiding the plans to the Death Star inconspicuously on my shirt - Check. I don’t know, is there some kind of midnight opening today?
So I’ve already gone through what I thought were the best returning comics of 2016. Now it’s time for the best comics that started in 2016. Yes, this does mean that some of these comics only have two or three issues out, but if so, it just means those two or three issues are really goddamn good.
Goodbye Moon! Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, the last two men to walk on the surface of our nearest neighbour began their return journey on 14 December, 1972.
Today’s Guardian has an interview with Liu Cixin discussing the growth of science fiction in China. He talks of reading a sci-fi novel in secret during his teens (and now I’m wondering what it was) and the lack of scientific imagery during his childhood.
Last week we got the news that S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez would be getting her own digital series. It’s now available for your viewing pleasure, no sign-in on ABC’s website required.
You get all six episodes and two behind-the-scenes extras with Joe Quesada (Yeah, that guy) and Natalia Cordova-Buckley for…
Posts pics, gifs, links to or descriptions of things you didn’t know you needed in your life until they appeared before you. The world awaits your answers.
A patient today asked if I could make his radiation therapy go any faster. I told him it was already going 300,000,000 meters per second and any faster would be illegal.
Andrew Lincoln, ruiner of post-apocalyptic towns up and down the ol’ US of A, has once again decided to comment on fan upset at the state of the show following last night’s midseason finale. In a much less antagonistic commentary compared to his view on fan outrage at last season’s finale the actor told The Wire that…
Dinosaurs on the other hand are cool, as we can all agree. (Feathers or not ;) ) Balloon dinosaurs should fall somewhere in the middle, I guess- unless they’re life sized balloon T-Rex skeletons!
Was last night’s mid-season finale of The Walking Dead a metaphor for original sin? Was it another string of improbable things for Negan to keep smiling about? It was both! It was also mildly entertaining and contained the hope of next year holding the Battle of the Five Communities.
Wonder Woman has been dropped as a champion for equality by the United Nations. Her tenure will end on Friday after protests that her over-sexualised image made the character an unsuitable choice for a campaign aimed at female empowerment.
Rudolph’s hyper-luminescent schnoz might be a useful utility for lugging Christmas goodies around the globe, but it seems that reindeer have another super-power. They can see ultra-violet light.
