Emily S. Whitten: The Twelve Days of Deadpool

Merry Christmas (or other winter holiday of your choice) and Happy Almost New Year! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful time with family and friends (and food. Ohhh, that holiday food!). In case you missed it, the Deadpool movie advertising folks have also been having a wonderful time, posting fun “12 Days of […]

Emily S. Whitten: Sphero’s BB-8 and Star Wars – The Force Awakens

Which came first, the movie or the toy? Okay, I kid, but seriously – was there ever a more perfectly marketable movie character than that fat little orange-and-white droid, BB-8? From his appearance in the first trailer, everyone seemed to fall in love with the little guy (me included). And then we learned that not […]

Martha Thomases: The Smartest Catharsis

I don’t know about you guys, but catharsis is kind of my jam. I seek out entertainment that expresses my dark and violent emotions so that I won’t act on them in dark and violent ways. And these past few weeks have been rough. The terrorism in Paris, the terrorism in Colorado, the police terrorism in […]

Mike Gold: Look! Up In The Sky!

Most of us are aware of the professional sod Jeremy Clarkson, who is now working for Amazon teevee (coming soon to an AppleTV near you). I haven’t been burdened with him as long as our British friends and therefore my opinion of the guy is somewhat more favorable than that found across the Great Pond. […]

Martha Thomases: Trigger Warnings! Beware!

Like the dweeb I am, I spent last weekend watching television on my computer. First (because I’d already seen the first two episodes), The Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime, and then Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix. I suppose there might have been other things to do for two days, but all of them involved […]

MICHAEL DAVIS: A Letter To Sharon   

Hey Sharon, Happy Birthday, Sis! I know I know I haven’t written to you in years and this is reaching you a dozen days after your birthday Nov. 10th. That’s not really that bad if you consider you’re been gone 35 years and change. Before you get all bent out of shape you’re not doing […]

Martha Thomases: So This Is Thanksgiving

“When I’m worried and I can’t sleep I count my blessings instead of sheep And I fall asleep counting my blessings” “Count Your Blessings” by Irving Berlin Next week is Thanksgiving, and so I’m trying to remind myself that I have many reasons to be thankful. First, of course, I am grateful for my family […]

Emily S. Whitten: Adventures in Costume-Making, Halloween Edition

Happy post-Halloween, everyone! I hope it was spooooky and fun and sugar-coma-tastic. Man, I love Halloween. And this year I had a big party to go to, so I decided to go all out on my costume, a creepy “broken doll.” Even though this year’s costume was not specifically geek-related (unlike that year I went […]

Mike Gold: My Short Attention Spam

I hate being bored, so over the years I’ve managed to shorten my attention span to the point when the good stuff runs out, so do I. Therefore, from time to time I have a little to say about a lot of things. For example: DC / Warner Bros finally gave credit where credit has […]

Emily S. Whitten: Hyped for Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones is the next up in Marvel’s series of Netflix TV shows, and I am beyond excited for it. I was excited for Daredevil, I loved Daredevil, I am excited that there’s going to be more Daredevil; but if possible, I think I may be more excited to see Jessica Jones than I was even […]

Emily S. Whitten: NYCC 2015 Part II – The Round-Up!

As much fun as Turtles Day (as I now affectionately call the Thursday of New York Comic Con) was, it’s most definitely not the only awesome thing about NYCC. There’s always so much awesome stuffed into those four days that it’s hard to sum it up. This year, to assist me in my round-up, I thought […]

Martha Thomases Eats Worms

More than three weeks ago, I twisted my knee somehow in a manner that causes it to continue to hurt. A lot. I happened to have a doctor’s appointment that day, and she told me to rest it, take anti-inflammatory medicine, and drink a lot of water. Which I have. Well, “resting” is a relative […]

Marc Alan Fishman The Right to Bear Arms

No, I didn’t spell that wrong. I just think all Americans should have the right to a free pair of bear arms. For protection. Or something. OK, I lied. I just like to be coy with my titles. But, as always, I digress. A while back, in response to the “Religious Freedom and Restoration Act,” […]

Mindy Newell: Wibbly Wobbley Timey Winey Stuff

As most of us Whovians and ComicMixers know, BBC America became the All Doctor Who All The Wibbly Wobbly Timey Winey Stuff network this past week in honor of the premiere of Season 9 – which, as I write this, airs tonight, Saturday, September 19. So I pretty much kept my TV tuned to channel […]

Emily S. Whitten: Randy Rogel, the Music of Animaniacs & More!

If you’re any sort of regular reader of my columns, you’ll already know that I’m a big fan of Animaniacs. I’ve also had the privilege of interviewing several of the main voices for the show; including Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, and Maurice LaMarche. One of these days I hope to meet the amazing Tress MacNeille […]


So how was this even remotely fair? First, Mark Filcher was on trial with a name like Filcher. Filcher? From the 16th Century word filch meaning “to appropriate furtively or casually?” Why didn’t Mark just change his name to I. Emma Thief and save us all a lot of trouble? Second, the jury of Mr. Filcher’s […]

Martha Thomases: School Daze

When I was a kid in Ohio, the school year would start the Wednesday after Labor Day. I can tell it’s Back to School time because I want to buy pens. Originally, I thought about writing a column that was a curriculum guide for classes comic book characters might take. Interlac 101, Latvarian History, that kind […]

Emily S. Whitten: Oh, Dragon Con!

Oh, Dragon Con, how I adore you! Let me count the ways… They include: The fact that even the airline losing my luggage until 3 a.m. on arrival Thursday feels like something I can roll with, since, after all, the minute I walk in I find old friends (and new) to greet me and take […]
