Why Captain America Should Die in Avengers: Infinity War

This will sound like a shock coming from me.  I'm a Marvel fan whose obsession with Captain America (and by extension, Chris Evans) has no bounds.  I have a six-foot tall cardboard cutout of him that I've showed off, multiple times, in public.  People have given me a swarm of Captain America-themed items, from pajamas… Continue reading Why Captain America Should Die in Avengers: Infinity War

Black Panther Rises, and My Body is Ready

I remember the hurricane of controversy when the first poster for Black Panther was released last summer.  Because the poster had a striking resemblance to a famous photograph of Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the American Black Panther Party, it ruffled white people’s feathers by simple virtue of a holla back to black power.  I just have one… Continue reading Black Panther Rises, and My Body is Ready

Solo: A Star Wars Meh

If this trailer had been a fan-made film, I would have gushed about how they did a great job.  "You guys made cool effects, an interesting (fanfic) backstory premise, and an awesome Chewbacca impression," I would have said.  But no.  This was a real Star Wars trailer. I don't know anyone who wanted this movie to… Continue reading Solo: A Star Wars Meh

Marvel’s Runaways: Is It Worth the Binge?

I was curious about Marvel's Runaways since the beginning.  While I'm not familiar with the Runaways comics, I was familiar with the co-creator Brian K. Vaughan, who also created the ongoing Saga series.  I knew Vaughan was a master storyteller after reading Saga for the first time, so I figured a television adaptation of another of his comic series… Continue reading Marvel’s Runaways: Is It Worth the Binge?

Spoiler Free Review of The Last Jedi

It happened, y'all.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped and I'm a bit of a mess.  Now, I'm going to be real with you: if you're expecting the groundbreaking, awe-inspiring, gravity-defying splendor that fans credit to The Empire Strikes Back, you're not going to find it because, well, who can live up to that?  No one.  I… Continue reading Spoiler Free Review of The Last Jedi

Book Review: Leia Princess of Alderaan

We all know Leia was the true badass Skywalker twin.  By the time she was nineteen, she was an accomplished Senator with a PhD and a leader of the Rebellion who could command a room of pilots without so much as standing on a soapbox.  However, in her book, Claudia Gray takes a deeper dive… Continue reading Book Review: Leia Princess of Alderaan

Check Your Privilege, Thor: Colonialism in Asgard

Major Thor: Ragnarok spoilers included below. Remember Thor from his first movie?  What a jerk.  Foaming at the mouth to become king, instigating galactic wars, gloating in his strength.  No one misses that guy.  He was the poster child of spoiled frat boys, but after getting banished on earth and crashing with Natalie Portman, he… Continue reading Check Your Privilege, Thor: Colonialism in Asgard

Recap of LA Comic Con 2017

Wassup nerds, your girl has risen from the Internet grave to wax poetic about her first ever Comic Con.  (No, not the one in San Diego.  My body is not ready for that insanity.)   When I was in college, I never joined my comic book club at LA Comic Con because of homework.  Now a… Continue reading Recap of LA Comic Con 2017

Dad Vader: Jeffrey Brown’s Alternate Star Wars Universe

If you're in the mood for a lighthearted, satirical "what-if" in the Star Wars universe, Jeffrey Brown's comics are just the ticket.  In Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess, Brown illustrates a hilarious scenario where Darth Vader struggles raise to Luke and Leia while also weaving in enough easter eggs to woo any hardcore… Continue reading Dad Vader: Jeffrey Brown’s Alternate Star Wars Universe
