This world is expanding pretty rapidly, a fact that might not be so much of a good thing. With the beloved Pocket Mortys still being captured, trained, and tortured, a few additional forces have entered the fray, with Beth and her Pocket Jerrys. If that sentence made any sense to those reading it, congratulations, because for those not familiar with the franchise, this can be a bit confusing. Honestly, it can be confusing for those of us who know the show and have played the game. That being said, this penultimate issue looks like its setting up for a huge conclusion. With (Evil) Morty still attempting to escape the grasp of Rick, a plan begins to come together to combine their skills (Morty's relentless spirit and Rick's lack of concern and acts of brilliance) to take on the Council of Ricks: a combined, powerful conglomerate of Ricks who control the entire Morty fighting sport, as well as the other Ricks. Without spoiling too much, this is going to be a major battle, full of more Morty battles, Rick being a jerk, and ridiculous concepts that are bizarre even for this franchise.

What makes Hermione Granger one of the best fictional characters? Is it simply J.K. Rowling’s keen ability to tell a story and craft incredible characters? Was it Emma Watson’s wonderful portrayal in the film series? Or perhaps there’s something more. Perhaps readers find something in her character to cheer for, to believe in, and maybe, just maybe, something we hope to see in ourselves.

Rugrats #1 serves as a reminder that there is still a place for Rugrats in our world. It's been a long time since the characters from Rugrats took another form in All Grown Up!, where teenage versions of the characters took focus beginning in April 2003 and lasting until August 2008. It was the next step for the characters but not much was done with them following the series. Tommy Pickles and the gang vanished from pop culture until now with this series. If you read it, you can already hear the voices of the actors who originally portrayed the characters. It's remarkable how much Box Brown, the writer, is able to recreate the voices of the characters. The art by Lisa DuBois also serves to show just how great the story can come about.

Hey, guys! Welcome back to another exciting week of Wonder Woman Wednesday! This week, we’re going to talk about James Robinson’s long-anticipated story arc introducing the controversial brother of Wonder Woman, Jason.
Production began last week on James Cameron’s very-long-in-gestation sequels to Avatar. At the same time, Fox announced last week that the four (Four!) sequels to the biggest international hit of all time will cost $1 billion to produce. The film world seemed to gasp a bit at the price tag, but $250 million per film isn’t all that unheard of when it comes to giant films like this, and Cameron will no doubt be doing what he always does and push the limitations of what’s possible on film. Titanic cost $200 million to make, and that was 20 years ago. Adjusted for inflation, Titanic would cost $305 million to make today. Rumors at the time suggested the first Avatar cost $500 million to make because of all of the R & D that went into creating it. These new Avatar films are a relative bargain by comparison. The original Avatar made $2.7 billion worldwide. Even if the interest for the sequels isn’t there and the four new films each make 50% less than the original, you’re still looking at a collective $5.4 billion gross against a $1 billion budget. Greenlighting this project is the biggest possible no-brainer short of printing your own money.
