In response to the Senate passing H.R.1865, an anti-online sex trafficking bill that has the potential to seriously harm consenting, adult sex workers, Craigslist has shuttered its all of its personals sections. Even the platonic ones.
It’s incredible to think that Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar had most of the series’ grand narrative arc planned out in detail years before it began airing on Cartoon Network. All of Steven and the Gems’ triumphs, discoveries, and adventures have been leading up to this moment.
Though many of Star Wars’ sentient droids communicate non-verbally, they’ve got a reputation for being able to experience and convey the full spectrum of human emotions from elation to powerful rage. This week’s Star Wars: Poe Dameron is a reminder that even though droids can’t cry, they can feel sorrow.
Geoffrey the Giraffe, 1969-2018, purveyor of material joy.
Unlike most the CW’s other superheroes who often rely on a close-knit network of allies who assist them when their vigilante work gets to be too much, we’ve really only ever seen Black Lightning working with one or two other people. Now, though, Jefferson’s finally getting something like a team of his own—and he just…
Every time I try to explain what Audioboom’s podcast Mission to Zyxx is, there’s this moment where I realize that on paper, it sounds like the kind of thing that would normally drive me insane. It’s an improv comedy podcast parodying Star Trek and Star Wars and a bunch of other genre fiction. It’s... a lot.
Out of all the live-action projects coming out of Marvel’s studios, Cloak & Dagger stands out in particular because of the work it took to update the original source material into something that people would actually want to watch in 2018.

Though Puerto Rico might no longer dominate the headlines the way it did in the days and weeks after last year’s hurricane season left at least 1,000 people dead, there are still countless more people on the island who are still fighting to piece their lives back together.

As cool as it is to see the Parr family kicking ass and taking names as the Incredibles, it’s just as fun (if not more so) to see them all fighting to blend in with normal society and hide the fantastic powers that make them superheroes. Newly announced comic books from Dark Horse will focus on exactly that.
Too often, filmmakers fall into the trap of thinking that a good, smart genre film requires a hefty VFX budget to bring its breathtaking, impossible visuals to life. Though that may have been true once, Matthew Charles Santoro’s Higher Power is proof positive it’s no longer the case.
Watching a drag queen get into costume is a lot like watching a superhero transform from their civilian identity as they get ready to fight the battle of their lives. It should come as no surprise, then, that the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’ third season look phenomenal as comic book heroes.
In time-honored Marvel tradition, the breakout stars of the studio’s most recent blockbuster success—Black Panther’s Dora Milaje—are getting their own spin-off comic book. Oh, and Peter Parker’s tagging along.
One of the greatest things about comic books is that they can (and often do) tell stories about updated versions of classic teams we’re all familiar with, and at a much more rapid pace than you’d see in television or movies. As a result, comic teams change rosters almost as quickly as individual team members change…
It was just revealed that actress DeWanda Wise was parting ways with Captain Marvel due to scheduling conflicts with the upcoming second season of Spike Lee’s rebooted She’s Gotta Have It series on Netflix. Within hours, we’ve found out which actress is going to replace her.
Though most of the ‘90s weren’t a great time for Marvel’s comics, they were a golden age for serialized cartoons starring the company’s characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men. But it’s not often that people bring up the short-lived, delightfully-Canadian Silver Surfer series that ran for one season on Fox in the…
The original Vampironica was equal parts Vampirella and old-school Archie queen bee Veronica Lodge, but in Greg and Meg Smallwood’s newest reboot of the character, Riverdale’s teen vampire antihero is reimagined for the millennial age.
How many people can say that their first date with their significant other was in the spirit realm outside of the conventional laws of time and space? Not. Very. Many.
Everyone knows that a movie immediately becomes 75 percent more interesting when Angela Bassett’s a member of the cast—and the more screen time she’s given, the better.
Now that the first wave of Ready Player One reviews have confirmed what the earliest trailers for the film suggested—that it’s over-reliant on genre culture nostalgia because its story is sorely lacking—the newest trailer is trying something bold: explaining the plot, instead.
