Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel came out today for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. In addition to having 50% of their playable characters be female, the game also wants all you Nice Guy GooberGrape Bros out there to know that the concept of the "friendzone" is inherently misogynist. Way to go, Borderlands. You're nailin' it.
Reasons I loved this year's New York Comic Con: I got to see great cosplay. I was able to buy five amazing posters in ten minutes. (My bank account's not happy, but I am.)

Tiny TARDIS first came into our lives in June, and we haven't been quite the same since. Now, judging from the promo pics below for this Saturday's "Flatline," we may soon discover, in Rebecca's words, "how tiny TARDIS" and "why tiny TARDIS." Hit the jump for the trailer and pics!
For Cinema Blend, I sat down with Jeremy Renner to talk about his electrifying political thriller Kill the Messenger. Towards the end of the interview, I asked the man who brought Hawkeye to the big screen if he was aware of the superhero's unique branch of fan art known as "The Hawkeye Initiative." He was not. This outtake tells what happened.
We're switching out our Sleepy Hollow recaps for these open threads, for reasons that are... completely legit. Looks, guys, I just want you to do the funny for me! So. Last night's episode. "Go Where I Send Thee." The Pied Piper. Let's talk about:
Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!
In the Game of Figures, you Hodor or you Hodor.
Are you sick of seeing "Social Justice Warrior" thrown around like a perjorative? Do you want to browse the internet without fear of being called an "SJW?" Do you wish everything in your life was just a little more spoopy? Then you might want to install this new extension that changes all mentions of "SJW" into "skeleton."
"See, son? Here's how it's done."
This summer, the horror-movie-making, twin-sisterly Soska Sisters announced that they'd be taking a crack at adapting Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti's Painkiller Jane to feature film. And they want to reassure fans: this one will not be safe for network TV.

Trains... in... spaaaaaaaaaaaaace!
Oh! Well, that explains why they're relaunching the original 2006 Civil War title. Well, why not just start with this news if you wanted to get us all excited, guys?
This past Thursday at New York Comic Con we got the rare opportunity to sit down with Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, and pepper them with questions about Korra and Aang, the upcoming themes of Book Four, and writing their characters as young adults rather than older teens.

Hey ladies, next time some troll gets in your internet-face and tries to be like LOL GIRLS JUST LIKE COMPUTERS FOR ATTENTION or WOMEN DON’T KNOW HOW TO CODE UGH or anything equally ridiculous, I want you to get a picture of Ada Lovelace, tape it to a digital brick, and throw it in their general direction.
