I love this book. To its very core. It’s a character-driven, science fiction adventure, high stakes coming-of-age story. I can see the trail of inspiration, the creative landmarks that carved a way through history to get here: Godzilla, Akira, Evangelion, and countless others. It feels of the same value, the same creative energies, but it never steals, and it never mirrors.

The best way to describe House of Demons is a collage of past, present, future, reality, surreal, imagined, and alternative timelines, all wrapped into one movie. All these things are woven together into a tapestry with horror as its backdrop. But, it is much more than just a horror movie. It’s a story of redemption and acceptance… should any of the characters find it while surviving a battle with demons.

I have a tendency to obsess over Wonder Woman’s costume, because I love the Lynda Carter version and, of course, the George Perez revamp. I think nostalgia plays a lot into it. But then, I saw the movie version, and, of course, I loved it and it looked awesome and more practical. I think it’s interesting that the original costume was created by a male feminist of the time, as it still fell prey to many of the trappings of what a man thinks a woman should be. It gets tricky, though, because some women love their, bras, and heels and make up. Is that wrong? I think a woman should do whatever the hell she wants to do.
