I sat across the table from my friends. We knew the situation we were in, defenseless with arrows drawn at my friends. He’d just finished caving in one of his captor’s heads after making a deal with a dark god in an attempt to save his allies. He’d failed. “Tell […]
To assume that laser beams and super villains are all that superhero comics have to offer the reader is to understand very little about the genre. Like any long-running soap opera, a comic book’s success hinges on a cast of characters you grow to love over time. The Spider-Man books […]
Warning NSFW There you are, in your standard gym shower: tiled floors, a slight view of the locker room attached, and multiple shower heads without dividers. You begin by waiting, alone, scanning the area for signs of life. You notice a white board with a number of classes listed but […]
PAX Prime is always a fun time. From the games, to the people, to the events and the tournaments, the fan-focused convention is always a highlight of my year. 2015 was no exception, but as we reminded everyone in our preview, the founders of PAX have had some choice words […]

Both Nintendo and Bethesda have some announcements to make tomorrow, followed by Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony on Monday, and then more Nintendo […]
“Have you ever tried not being a mutant?” Bobby Drake’s mom in X2: X-Men United is sure in for a big surprise given the one of the latest reveals in the comics. X-Men is useful as an allegory, whether or not Prof. Charles Xavier and Magneto are analogous to Martin […]
