Well, it’s the end of the world as we know it. Time to binge watch HBO, and just in time to do so is season three of Westworld: The Blade Runner Years.

Constantine celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and despite its early and overall critical response (which isn’t great*), I’m here to share why this R-rated film is a win.
After many years of success in the recording industry, producing multi-platinum albums such as U2’s The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby, Peter Gabriel’s So and Us, Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind, and Emmylou Harris’ Wrecking Ball, 11-time Grammy winner Daniel Lanois received an unusual call: Rockstar Games, well-known for their Grand Theft Auto franchise, asked him to compose the soundtrack for the next installment of their Western-themed Red Dead Redemption series.
“Between the Panels” is a bi-weekly interview series focusing on comic book creators of all experience levels, seeking to examine not just what each individual creates, but how they go about creating it.
With the Destiny Man hot on their heels, the international group of heroes tasked with infiltrating the walled-off United States has done what they came here to do: getting a mysterious key into the hands of an even more mysterious leader. Our group is a bit splintered, as many of the most talented minds in the world are doing everything they can to escape the throngs of the Destiny Man's followers. Daniel and Lottie are working on their own to meet up with a potential ally who may provide deeper access into the secretive, dark world of the United States of America. With this strange, new world surprising them at every turn and the deadly Sky Virus terrorizing the globe, things only seem to be getting more complicated.

On the hunt for the killer, Mal and Moon encounter someone who seems to have no qualms about committing mass murder in order to get to Mal.
Marvel Entertainment and IDW Publishing announced in 2018 that the two companies will create comic books designed for younger readers. Again, we must be trapped in the Bizzaro World of Marvel. With the release of the second issue of Marvel Action: Spider-Man, I’m elated to say it has been as good as the top-notch, current Marvel-published comics featuring the famed web-slinger. The all-ages periodical is as friendly as your neighborhood Spider-Man and accessible to anyone who has only seen characters in the movies or cartoons. Marvel Action: Spider-Man is a fresh start for all-aged readers of Marvel’s most popular character, and the triumphant return of the kid-friendly periodical comic book.
Change (and how we deal with it) is one of the themes that runs throughout the Ascender series - one that I think is important, especially in these unsettled times. It affects us not only on a personal level, but also on a global scale, as well.
