The first volume of Black Hammer was great. This one is even better. The more I read, the more I want to read, and the more engrossed I become in the world that writer Jeff Lemire and artist Dean Ormston have created. It’s a mystery that unfolds page by page, issue by issue, full of incredible characters and brilliant twists. I can’t recommend this comic enough.
The Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions comics run has made some great progress in terms of LGBTQ2* representation and race and body type diversity while still centering music and taking its aesthetics from the '80s pop-punk scene, and this installment furthers that work. Comics in the Dimensions series include two short stories each, with the ultimate intention of showing Jem, the Holograms, the Misfits, and even a pretty well-developed set of groupies in a multi-dimensional way through extended world building and character development. Each story is written and drawn by a rotating crew, meaning that each comic contains two distinct story and art styles. This installment includes Sarah Kuhn and Siobhan Keenan’s “Face Off” and Sarah Winifrid Searle’s “Star Girl.”

How old were you when you first watched a Star Wars film? Was it A New Hope or some other film in the franchise? As we’re in full "Force" of the latest release, The Last Jedi, the Geeky Parent Guide wants to look at the popular franchise that many love - and want to continue seeing more of in the future - and look at the wide-ranging cast of characters that make Star Wars entertaining for almost all ages. The films’ ratings might help you determine when you’ll find it acceptable for your kids to watch.
Like any good queen, I’m in the midst of binge-watching Netflix’s The Crown. Admittedly, I was almost done with the first season and somehow fell off in the middle of episode seven. Luckily, after much ballyhoo, I’m back on board and that was no mistake. Claire Foy gives an epic performance as a Queen Elizabeth who became queen at quite a young age. In the beginning, she’s afraid and justifiably so.
The time has come once again for us to celebrate the holidays in all of their glory. It's time to deck the halls, trim the tree, and create crazy monsters with magic and hunt them for sport! Well, that's the case if you live in Hole World. In this year's Curse Words Holiday Special, we get a look into the main cast, as the nine beings that worship the evil Sizzajee celebrate their favorite tradition: the Meatmeet, a special activity that shows these pretty bizarre beings doing a pretty bizarre things. Mostly, the Meatmeet is a competition for Sizzajee's favor, as the nine beings (which are the ones who have come after our beloved Wizord in our world) create a creature, imbue it with magic, and hunt it down, with the winner getting respect from Sizzajee and a special seat at the table during the celebration.
