THE TICK, Fun as a child, Important as an Adult

~Travis McMaster Now that we’ve all had time to binge the first half of Ben Edlund‘s latest The Tick TV show, I want to examine where it all began. There will be plenty of reviews and deconstructions of the new Amazon show (for the record, I loved it. I think it’s got a unique texture, which is so rare in this genre) so instead, I want to go back to where it started for me, and most of us, and talk about exactly why The Tick speaks to so many of us in the same exact weird way.

RIVERDALE Recap and Review: (S01E04) The Last Picture Show

~Andrew Buckley Let me start by explaining the relationship I have with Archie comics. I lived in the UK until I was 17. Archie comics didn’t exist over there. But I visited Canada with my family several times between ages 8 and 13 and was spellbound by these thick comic books being sold at the end of every grocery store checkout. I loved the comedic elements of the Archie comics, the diverse characters, and the relationships throughout. The characterization of a bumbling Archie, Betty the girl next door, Veronica the rich girl, Jughead the anti-teen, Reggie the asshole, and...

by Jason Doyle Sony Pictures has announced that the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, due in theaters at Christmas 2018, will feature not the traditional Spider-Man, Peter Parker, but a newer alternate version, Miles Morales.

Can Amazon Win the War Against Netflix?

~Jason Doyle A heated battle for streaming video dominance has been actively fought by Amazon and Netflix since 2015. Tech analysts and fans of quality programming are speculating that these two streaming video giants will once again fight for market share in 2017; Amazon is currently trying to catch up to Netflix and there are strong reasons to believe that this will happen this year. With Jeff Bezos as Amazon CEO, the company could conceivably catch up to Netflix if the executive board decides that this would fit within a bigger picture. One look at the board of directors suggests that...

TABLETOP REVIEW – Don’t Turn Your Back

by M. Pending Düüm “Down a lonely alleyway, under a starless sky, lies a city that never was, yet is: the Mad City, where Nightmares walk the streets, and a good night’s sleep can get you killed. Every now and then, the Awake – chronic insomniacs from our world, the City Slumbering – break through the barriers of normal human perception and cross over to the Mad City, becoming trapped there, gaining abilities fueled by madness and exhaustion. Most of the Awake live a short, phantasmagorical, frantic life in the Mad City, before it quite literally eats them alive....
