I was about ten years old the first time I got to watch Silence of the Lambs. Was that wildly inappropriate for a child that age? Of course, but it helped in spawning a love for the charismatic villain who ate people! Here was this man, who for all intents and purposes, was perfectly sane, yet could give you nightmares just by talking.
We all have relationships we would like to forget, past partners we wish would drop off the face of the earth and for Nakano, that had finally happened.
So here’s the thing.
Sometimes I get exhausted trying to figure out what to write and while I’m currently balls deep into Supernatural (just started season 2) so I can write about my spiraling fangirl addiction about that, I figured we can have some fun together!
Ansem is all about the Darkness. He wants to live in it, be it, and create an entire kingdom bathed in it. Welcome to the Kingdom Hearts fandom! It took me quite a while to unscramble my brain and organize all the time travel so I will touch briefly on all four incarnations and then sum up on why this person is the perfect embodiment of all evil and deserves to burn on a pyre.
In my hurry to write an article worth reading on this lazy Sunday, I received a text from my co-worker, on one of the few shows I recommended she watch: […]
The bad guy is always the most memorable.
They make it possible for the hero to prevail and make that movie stay with you long after you left the theater. The point here is get you all to find a villain you love to hate (or just plain love!) and who knows, perhaps you’ll stumble across one who will make you pick up a comic for the first time.
When John Abramowitz reached out to us to review his book Identity Theft, I was vaguely hesitant. A series about a young arcane defense attorney who takes supernatural clients? Paging Wolfram & Hart!
I started the first book in the series so I could be properly acquainted with the universe Hunter Gamble lives in and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
I was actually preparing a wholly different article (a Sucks to Be a Noob), but personal tragedies didn’t allow me time to complete it properly so I am sort of cheating with this top 5 list. No worries though, we won’t become a Newsarama type of site, where all you see are top 10 lists!
Marvel NOW! is a shifting type of relaunch instead of a full reboot, with creative team changes, as well as resetting the issue numbers to #1, following the events of Avengers vs. X-Men. There is still ONE title to be released in the next month, but what should you consider completely avoiding in lieue of other releases? More importantly, which so far have been terrible?
We’re all familiar with the cigar smoking, ole teddy bear of a mutant, Wolverine, right?
Logan (or James Howlett, whatever you prefer) first showed up in comics in 1974 and possesses several powers, most notably his adamantium laced skeleton and his regenerative healing factor. Somewhat of a brooding loner, he is normally found on staff at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, mentoring a young mutant lady, or deployed on missions for one of the many teams he is on. Assuming he’s one of your favorite characters, there are times you might search your closet longingly, as today might just feel like a “Wolverine day,” but alas, you don’t have any clothes to properly emulate his attire. Never fear, that’s where this post came from!
Imagine this, a 3-day show where a person could sample and participate in the finest content that many different communities and conventions have to offer. All-Con fills 3 halls, 3 suites, 6 panel rooms, a performance room, a tiered seating projection room, and 3 ballrooms with exhibits, workshops, discussions, game shows, performances, and competitions. The selection of activities changes every hour from the start of the day until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
When I received the book at my home, I thought to myself, who the fuck is C. Robert Cargill? I came to the gentleman’s Tumblr page and lo and behold, he is the film critic turned screenwriter from last year’s pretty creepy flick, Sinister. Color me excited.
A secret song between two forbidden lovers helps keep this pairing on my mind, particularly when it comes up on my shuffled music library.
Moulin Rouge centers around the tale of a young writer who narrates his tragic love story in the year 1899-1900. Freshly arrived in Montmarte, France, Christian vows to become a writer of Bohemian ideals, particularly love, even though he has never experienced it.
Is it just me or does time travel always end in tragedy? Can we change time and still have things work out for the best?
Your mind will be blown when you view these pieces of art (I hope!).
Pendleton Ward is a goddamn genius.
He has brought us Adventure Time, a cartoon that has explored all sorts of mature themes, while keeping things mathematical. Popular among all age groups, Adventure Time has taken the country by storm in the past two years and I will preemptively call it now: Ward has done it again with his new series, The Bravest Warriors.
This bombshell from Oklahoma (yes, really!) shocks and enraptures us all with her gorgeous cosplays, so I’ve chosen Linda, the ridiculously cute Vampy Bit Me, as the cosplayer to spotlight today! She is very active on her Facebook page and Twitter so tell her hi!
While I read just about everything, I’m quite picky about the titles I ultimately add to my pull list and the purpose of these mini reviews is to perhaps get you to pick up a new title yourself or to broaden your comic horizons. Most of the time I’ll write up the new #1′s I’ve chosen, or if the issue was truly spectacular, it’ll serve as a way to spotlight the series as a whole. Either way, let’s begin!
Before I begin, let me ask you a couple of questions.
Have you been wanting to dive headfirst into the emotional maelstrom of comics and have zero idea where to start?
Are you particularly interested in what Marvel has to offer?
If the answer to both of these is a yes, then this will be the article for you.
In a never ending quest to play all the video games ever, Ladyvader99 thrills and chills you with details on her journey throughout Assassin’s Creed! Will she continue the series or admit defeat? Was she able to stealthily achieve 100% as she gamed? Find out!
Peter Kokis reached out to us to showcase his amazing talent at turning stuff we all have in our homes and never pay attention to, into full on cosplays of […]
I return for my second attempt at shipping something obsessively and I again turn my attentions to the Doctor.
What sort of relationship would you expect a mad man with a box to have with a woman who is hell in high heels?
It’s an answer stuffed with sexual innuendo, sassy encounters, and rife with tragedy.
Okay, man. The shakes are back and I need some sort of ASOIAF goodness now that my withdrawal has kicked it into high gear. To help myself cope with the […]
I’m not going to sit here and pretend I am the authority on all things DC comics, nor will I pretend like this mini rant is going to make a […]
I realize we have been oddly silent about the recent acquisition of Lucasarts by Disney. This is not for lack of feeling and/or enthusiasm as can be evidenced by the […]
