The Great Disney Blogathon: The Fox and the Hound 2 (2006)

thefoxandthehound2

Of all the mysteries in the world, one of the most puzzling is why Disney chose to make a sequel to The Fox and the Hound, easily one of the most forgotten movies in their stable. And, well, despite the presence of frankly bafflingly big names in the cast (Patrick Swayze and Reba McEntire, what […]

Supergirl Saturday: Supergirl v6 #18-20

Now that her series is over, let’s check back in with another arc from the New 52 Supergirl series. When we last left this version of Kara, she’d clawed her way out of the terrible “H’el on Earth” crossover with Superman and Superboy, but it left her with a) a broken heart, b) the certainty […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: The Fox and the Hound (1981)

I think it’s fair to say that The Fox and the Hound is one of Disney’s least-loved films. It came out during a time that’s infamous for being Disney’s creative nadir, there are no standout characters or voices or songs, the source material that it’s based on is not very well known, and most importantly, […]

Wiscon 2015!

It’s time for my annual Wiscon report! As always, I had a fantastic time with fantastic people. I was on three panels this year: Female Protagonists in Graphic Novels and Comics: The problem with this sort of panel is that there’s just so much to say! What really struck me was how different it was […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
