BW Ozy 3I am getting nervous about the direction that Ozymandias is starting to take. The first issue was the standard origin story, while the second issue detailed Veidt’s first outing as a vigilante. This issue is almost entirely focused on the origins of the second group of Minutemen.

Dancing with the Stars
has kicked off its hundred and fifty-seventh season, this time in the form of an all-star version. (Apparently, there is a limit to the number of celebrities willing to don gay apparel and wiggle it, just a little bit, for the prime time audience at large.)

I'm tuning in 'till past favorites Pamela Anderson and Kirstie Alley get kicked off.  Hey!  I'm a loyal fanboy,  I was one of the 5 people who saw Barb Wire in the theater. The only one not wearing a trench coat, albeit, but present nonetheless.

Which brings us to Kirstie Allie.

 

Destinys Fate with ReviewIn Destiny's Fate, a group known as the Defenders of the Fourth Dimension protects the time stream and fate itself, preserving it as it is meant to be, but another group, known as the Assassins, works to take back control of fate. Destiny's Fate seems to center around a single family, the Ryders, some of whom belong to the Defenders and others to the Assassins. This first issue doesn't provide a solid reason for the war between the two groups, which made me hesitate to root for Nile and his fellow assassins, who don't have clear motivation for going through time killing certain figures.


The missing background elements aside, the actual premise itself is a lot of fun with a mix of sci-fi and fantasy conventions. The idea of skipping through and fighting in different periods of history is a great concept that will take this series far, if used right. Issue #1 already shows a willingness to use locations in time that aren't often visited, such as different points in Japan's history. Destiny's Fate #1 is action packed, with a complete adventure of Nile and his companions while providing a solid foundation for the setting, some of the rules of time travel, and laying the ground work for the issues to follow. The pacing and dialogue are excellent with a relatable and funny narration provided by Nile.

Breaking Bad*Please note that this article is an opinion-editorial.


Breaking Bad's midseason finale reminds us to be active viewers.”


I had the opportunity recently to see the revival of the Broadway musical La Cage Aux Folles, which was at least partially the source material for the Robin Williams film The Birdcage.  Set in a notorious drag club in the South of France, the show presents us with many things that are not as they appear on the surface.  As he show opens, Georges, the club’s owner, implores the audience to pay close attention to what we’re seeing.


“I beg you,” Georges says, “open your eyes.”


That, ladies and gentlemen, is brilliant advice, as we navigate life.  Pay attention.  Be alert.  See what’s hidden beneath the surface.

 

Crossover 1The concept of Crossover is brilliant---a team of adult comic book creators re-visiting the characters they created when they were kids. Unfortunately, it falls a bit short in execution, and doesn’t quite live up to the promise of its premise.

 

The MasterI have to confess that I don’t know very much about Scientology.  I know Tom Cruise practices it, as do a handful of other high profile celebrities.  Without them, we might not have ever heard of it.  I know it’s a religion founded by science fiction author L. Ron Hubbard.  I know they own a crazy amount of high-end Hollywood real estate.  I know you can’t walk down Hollywood Boulevard without having somebody ask you if you want to take a stress test.  And, I know that a lot of people look on Scientology as an organization with sinister motives or intents.
