The Great Disney Blogathon: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)


It seems strange to think of Winnie the Pooh as one movie, especially nowadays. After all, it’s one of Disney’s juggernaut franchises: quieter than the Princesses and Tink and Cars, but consisting of five theatrical films, nine direct-to-videos, five TV shows (including the currently-running Tales of Friendship), video games, shorts, specials, a ride in four […]

pull list supergirl 39

State of the Pull List, Pre-Convergence

I know I usually check in pull list-wise in September, but between DC shaking things up next month and again in June and me just adding a whole bunch of new titles to my pulls, I figured I’d do a quick rundown of what I’m reading these days. Who doesn’t love talking about their pull […]

Friday Links Roundup

Whoops, been a while since I did one of these! A lot’s happened over at Panels lately: Sneak Peek! Batman vs. Superman: Prawn of Justice. I got an advance look at the upcoming Batman vs. Superman script, and let me tell you, Aquaman’s part looks…interesting. Oliver, No: Three Things Arrow Needs to Stop Doing. If […]


The Great Disney Blogathon: Robin Hood (1973)

There’s a lesson to be learned from Robin Hood, but I’m not sure what it is. It might be that even at their lowest ebb, a great studio can still make great art. It might be the power of knowing when you can coast and get away with it. It might be that characters who […]


Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #311, “The Day Super-Horse Became Human!”

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Ugh. Okay. So how did this grossness come about? (And to be clear, I don’t think it’s gross because he’s sometimes a horse. I think it’s gross because he’s an adult who is lying to a teenage girl in order to emotionally manipulate her.) Everyone loves Linda/Supergirl! (And no, don’t worry, we’ve never seen […]

There Is a Flash Project Now Too I Guess: Episode 1.09, “The Man in the Yellow Suit”


We’re back! Sorry about that. It’s Christmas, and some guy is hanging lights – when two streaks of lightning rush past him, causing all the lights to go out. Whaaat? It’s Barry, of course, angrily chasing…the man in the yellow suit who killed his mother! Dun dun dun! One day earlier, Barry and Joe are […]

Dying Hard


I’m sure there’s absolutely nothing on this blog that would tip you off to this fact, but I can be a bit of an obsessive completionist. One day I’ll wake up totally fixated on something, and find myself utterly preoccupied with it until I’ve devoured every bit of canon available to me. Recently, and don’t […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #310, “Supergirl’s Rival Parents!”


Our last Supergirl Saturday left you on a cliffhanger, with Kara discovering that her birth parents are still alive, trapped in the Survival Zone. She’s determined to rescue them – but what if doing so just causes new problems? Kara starts her search by asking Kandorian scientists for help locating the Survival Zone: But those […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: The AristoCats (1970)


It seems somehow inappropriate to be posting this review on Presidents’ Day. Down with the aristocracy! Or the aristoCATcy. Whatever. In his massive work The Disney Films, Leonard Maltin says that “[t]he worst that one could say of The AristoCats is that it is unmemorable. It’s smoothly executed, of course, and enjoyable, but neither its […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: The Jungle Book 2 (2003)


There are Disney sequels that surprise you with an unexpected amount of heart or wit, or that add something new and fun to the mythology of their franchise. There are sequels that actively bad or lazy or offensive, and show just a little too much of Disney’s monstrous, ever-ravenous corporate maw. And then there are […]
