The Great Disney Blogathon: Sleeping Beauty (1959)


I’ve never really connected with Sleeping Beauty. Though we had it when I was growing up, which means I’ve watched it dozens of times, Aurora certainly got popped in the ol’ VCR less frequently than her classic sisters Snow White and Cinderella, and it’s probably my least favorite of the princess movies.1 Though I admired […]


Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #300, “The Return of Super-Horse!” and #301, “The Secret Identity of Super-Horse!”

Hold on to your spurs, kids: Comet’s back! And in these next couple of issues, we’re finally going to get the payoff (?) you’ve all been waiting for (???): the romance between Supergirl and her horse. Blech. Our story begins with Supergirl having yet another dream about Comet, prompting her to go see if his […]


What I Read in July

In the excellent When We Wake, Australian teenager Tegan Oglietti is cryogenically frozen and wakes 100 years later to find herself the center of a conspiracy in a complicated, perilous future. While We Run continues the story from the point of view of her love […]


The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episodes 2.17 – 2.19

2.17 – Birds of Prey: Frank Bertinelli has returned to town; he’s quickly arrested, but both the cops and Team Arrow know this means Helena’s not far behind. Donner asks Laurel to take the Bertinelli case; he’s cleared away any obstructions relating to her possibly being disbarred. Ollie goes to the courthouse to see the […]


Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #299, “The Fantastic Secret of Superbaby II!”

And now for something completely different! After all the shenanigans over the past few weeks with Lena, Lex, and Lesla, I’m sure Linda is very glad that this week’s adventures contain no one with the initials “L.L.” (except her, of course). Hey, Supergirl scored the cover! Our story begins with Supergirl visiting Kandor. Among other […]

The Smallville Project: Episode 2.13 – “Suspect”


Jess: Luthor Castle, a stormy night. Lionel’s on the second level of the study, reading Nietzsche and listening to opera. Oh my GOD. Rebecca: This episode was apparently brought to you by the Smallville Script Generator. Jess: Someone calls and he tells them he’ll be going back to Metropolis tomorrow alone, because he’s pretty sure […]

The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episodes 2.14 – 2.16


2.14 – Time of Death: We open with William Tockman, a.k.a. Clock King, directing two henchmen in a perfectly timed theft at KORD ENTERPRISES (!!! WHEN DO I GET MY TED KORD, SHOW, WHEN). He then murders one of them for messing up the timing. Ollie hosts an awkward So You’re Not Dead After All […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #297, “The Forbidden Weapons of Krypton!” and #298, “The Super-Powers of Lex Luthor!”


Back to the Silver Age! When we last left our heroine, she had overheard her new friend Lena Thorul confessing to Dick Malverne that she is Supergirl. This is, of course, untrue. Why would Lena lie? Is she turning evil, like her older brother Lex Luthor? We pick up right where last issue left off: […]

State of the Pull List


It’s September again, and three years since DC ripped my beautiful, beloved post-Crisis universe away and replaced it with a sad, colorless landscape and costumes with way too much piping. Not that I’m bitter. Anyway, I thought it was once again time to check in and see what I’m reading on a monthly basis: Supergirl: […]

The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episodes 2.11 – 2.13


Yeeeah, so. I had always intended to stop doing these full-length episode recaps once Flash premiered; I was barely keeping up with two shows a week, and three would be impossible. But a combination of aching wrists, new writing commitments, and the fast-approaching Season 3 premiere means I’m going to have to switch over to […]
