Tom Ellis is charming, funny, and sexy as Lucifer. If the show succeeds, it will be because he’s carrying it on his back. But everything else is pretty flat. What was really offputting though was the way every woman in it was treated. Here they are by order of appearance:
I’m as excited about Star Wars and The Walking Dead as the next nerd, but when you go to San Diego Comic-Con and commit yourself to Hall H and Ballroom 20 panels, you don’t just miss out on precious, precious sleep; you miss out on all the other wide and varied programming the con has to offer. So here’s what I’m…
The 2015 Eisner Award nominations were released this morning, and this year’s slate is stacked with phenomenal work. I read a lot of comics, so I’m going to highlight some of the most interesting and competitive categories.
It's Friday and we're all jonesing for a little good news, so here you go: The Runaways are coming back. The better news? Noelle Stevenson (Nimona, Lumberjanes) is writing! The new book, with Sanford Greene on pencils, is launching as a Secret Wars tie-in this June.
Well, the gem on my palm started blinking bright red today, so I guess I'm off to Carrousel. It's been nice knowing you all!
I was looking at this preview for next week's issue of Captain America and the Mighty Avengers, when something Spider-Man said caught my eye.
With lots of Hulk vs. Iron Man footage!
It's generally a good idea to avoid Twitter during major television events, but it got really bad during tonight's Walking Dead midseason finale. Huge spoiler after the jump. (Apologies for the visual pun, but it was the only way I could figure out to keep the spoiler image after the jump.)
And Bleeding Cool has the story. If you've been hanging out in certain corners of comics Twitter, word of the JL8 cartoonist sending unsolicited graphic photos to women has been an open secret for a while. Now, in the wake of Stewart's public spat with Ulises Farinas and his decision to step away from JL8, those…
By now, you should be aware that Jezebel posted a public complaint yesterday about the troll that has for months been assaulting their comments with graphic images. They have repeatedly complained to their higher-ups, who have failed to take any action at all.
Thousands of people have been evacuated around north San Diego County in the wake of massive wildfires, and it looks like it's going to get worse before it gets better. The Santa Ana winds are finally starting to die down, but we're still dealing with triple digit heat. My family and I are safe, but I have many…
There be spoilers ahead, so if you haven't seen Amazing Spider-Man 2, consider yourself warned. Also included are spoilers for a 31 year old comic, but if you haven't read it by now, I don't really care about spoiling you.
So it turns out that Brendan Eich, the new CEO of Mozilla, gave $1000 to California's Yes On Prop 8 campaign, an initiative which (temporarily) banned gay marriage in the state. Meanwhile, Firefox's slogan is "Different by design". So I guess different is great, so long as it's not gay different.
Look, I've told you to buy Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye before. It's easily the smartest superhero comic on the shelves right now, with clever, heartfelt writing and Eisner-winning art. And now Comixology has put a ton of Fraction's work on sale, which means you can get the first 11 issues for just 99 cents…
Also not things:
In their article about Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher returning to Star Wars(which I won't link to here), Geekologie said this:
So guess who didn't go to bed until 2:30 AM.
I've been working on my Christmas music playlist, and I'm curious about your favorite Christmas songs. I skew heavily toward the modern end of things, with lots of Bing Crosby and the Vince Guaraldi Trio, plus a few selections from John Denver and the Muppets. So what will you be playing while you trim the tree?
