With its third episode (a chapter titled "The Sin"), Disney+'s The Mandalorian continues with its bold and brash style, this time under the helm of director Deborah Chow (who will also be directing the streaming service's upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor). The series' lead character has been compared both to American gunslingers like Clint Eastwood's iconic "man with no name" and the noble and honorable Japanese samurai warriors, most notably Ogami Ittō of Lone Wolf and Cub. Previous episodes of the series have mined many standards and tropes of the Western genre, but "The Sin" gives audiences the chance to learn more about the state of Mandalorian culture after the fall of the Galactic Empire and see the disciplined Bushido-like code of those who walk the way of the Mandalore.

In July, I received the opportunity to review the first two books in the Young Adventurer's Guide series. I've waited ever since for the chance to pick up the remaining books in the series and, as luck would have it, Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeons & Tombs recently crossed my desk.
Family Tree #1 starts as a story of a single mother (Loretta) and her children (one troubled teenage son and an eight-year-old daughter who seems to be more mature and understanding than those her age), but it becomes a horror story of sorts when Loretta’s daughter starts to grow into a tree. It all comes to a head when Loretta’s grandfather comes blasting back into her life (literally).
