sgsat_ac316_1

When we last left our heroine, she was once again torn between two sets of beloved parents (not to mention both of her mothers experiencing alarming psychotic breaks). How will she and her parents ever solve this predicament? Oh, through liberal amounts of lying and mind games, of course. Come on, this is the Silver […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #314, “Supergirl’s Tragic Ordeal!” and #315, “The Menace of Supergirl’s Mother!”

HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE SUPERGIRL TRAILER? I’m freaking out, y’all. It looks wonderful. Is it November yet??? In honor of my girl’s glorious debut on the small screen, it’s time for another Supergirl Saturday! We’ve got more parent drama this week, so I hope Ms. Slater and Mr. Cain are taking notes: Didn’t we […]

13 Thoughts About Daredevil

It took a couple weeks, but I finally finished watching Daredevil! I’m not going to recap it or anything (hahahaNO), but there were a few things I wanted to talk about. Spoilers for the whole season below: 1. I think I like Daredevil now, and I’m really mad about it. I have never had any […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #313, “The End of Superman’s Secret Identity!’ and “Lena Thorul, Jungle Princess!”

Well, we got through some boringness last time, but it paid off, because today’s installment is sublimely ridiculous. But before we get to the kookiness of Supergirl’s story in this issue, we’ve got to cover her appearance in the lead story. She even made the cover! ha ha take that clark And the cover doesn’t […]

What I’ve Read in 2015 (So Far)

So that whole “book a week” thing pretty much failed last year, huh? Whoops. I think I’m going to try a simpler way of keeping track of my rereading and just check off books as I get through ‘em. Here’s the first batch: 1. Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Sex, Deviance, and Drama from the Golden […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #308, “The Super-Tot from Nowhere!” and #312, “The Fantastic Menace of the LL’s!”

This week we’re rushing through a couple of quick filler stories. There’s not much to them, which is why, as you might have noticed, it’s taken me a while to get to them. Sometimes the Silver Age is boring, sorry, guys! “What would life be like for Supergirl if she were married and had a […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: The Rescuers (1977)

therescuers

John Grant calls The Rescuers “a transitional movie,” and though I disagree with almost everything he has to say about this particular picture, I have to agree with him there. Many of the Nine Old Men, Walt’s favorite animators who had guided the studio’s output since the 40s, were retiring or had already done so; […]

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

winniethepooh

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 […]

State of the Pull List, Pre-Convergence

pull list supergirl 39

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

the little mermoa

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 […]
