Boy, Carol Danvers sure does fall down a lot, right?
For some reason, a lot of comic book news dropped today and, unfortunately, not all of it was good. io9 hasn’t covered it yet, so I’ll try to cover everything:
The brilliant Lindsay Ellis has come out with what is perhaps her magnum opus: “YouTube: Manufacturing Authenticity (for Fun and Profit!).” It’s an in-depth look at how content creation on YouTube works, with an interview with Hank Green, and a look at two cake channels. Brought to you by Squarespace!
Last season, I did an episode by episode review, but since this season was being better received, I decided to just binge-watch it all and review the entire thing at once. And boy am I glad I did.
The Doom Patrol has had many incarnations throughout the years, but the new live action streaming show is going for a mixture of the original team (Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, and the Chief), with an addition from Grant Morrison’s run (Crazy Jane). And now that we have a first image of what they look like,…
Here’s a video essay that came out right after I made the post, but it’s interesting and important enough that I want people to see it: Pop Culture Detective takes a look at how The Last Jedi subverted expectations in regard to male heroes and female characters in power (and also why there is a lot of hate towards the…
So a lot of pop culture video essays came out this week. And they were all pretty damn good. Here we go:
I watch a lot of YouTube videos. A lot. So I figured: why not roundup the best pop-culture video essays I’ve found in the most recent weeks so you don’t have to go searching for them?
Marvel recently announced that it was bringing back Uncanny X-Men, starting it off with a ten-part weekly story called “DISASSEMBLED.” But what brought us to here and what have the X-Men been doing up until now?
If you, like me, had no idea what the fuck a “QAnon” was until recently, then this video is for you: former Cracked writer Cody Johnston breaks down what the “Deep State” conspiracy theory is on his show Some More News in the most hilarious way. By the way, did you know that Donald Trump is somehow President? I know,…
Slender Man is a solid B horror movie. There is nothing especially memorable about it, but it’s not terrible either. The problem, however, is that there could have been something great in it. The movie simply was more interested in jump scares than in actual horror.
I’m going to make a confession right now. One that might get me ostracized from the io9 community forever: I don’t like Star Trek: The Original Series.
This...this is a thing of beauty.
As we get more information about Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, I began imagining what it might look like. From what we know, the series won’t actually be about the War of the Ring, which is a good thing (you can’t really surpass the movies), but, rather, it will take place before the War, during the Third Age of…
Slade. Slllllaaaaade. Slaaaaaaaade. Slllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddeeeeee.
And it’s amazing.
Right now, there is a petition to rehire James Gunn that has gotten nearly 130,000 signatures. It probably won’t do anything to help, but it definitely should.
Hey, remember how the whole “DC Extended Universe” thing was never actually official and never used by Warner Brothers? Well, it turns out that they were just waiting to think up a better name and now they have: “the Worlds of DC.”
San Diego Comic-Con is kind of like Christmas for geeks and nerds, giving us tidbits and trailers and making us giddily excited for a little bit (except for the moments when we are stuck with complete depression). But even if you aren’t at SDCC, it’s still a time to reveal stuff, like Marvel did today with some Agents…
Since io9 is only covering the super important events at SDCC and not many comic-related stuff, I’ve decided to consolidate all of that over here. There have been a lot of interesting announcements for both Marvel and DC over the past two days, so here goes:
