For most of the last few years, the “Expanded Universe” has focused on the continuing and further adventures of the base (and sometimes minor) characters from the original films, and this novel is no different. Luke Skywalker, Leia Organo, and Han Solo, the heroes of the Rebellion and the founders of a New Republic, have been involved in every single galaxy-changing event since they left the hanger of the first Death Star, their lives defined by the eternal struggle of good versus evil; however, in the face of a new problem that threatens to change the balance of the galactic economy and the stability of the tentative peace, the triumphant trio makes some radical decisions that forever alter the lives of everyone involved.
Dishonored takes place in the plague-ridden town of Dunwall. The city looks like it is steampunk at first glance, but there is nothing here that is powered by steam. The chief power source in Dunwall is whale. This is whalepunk, and it is kind of awesome. Totally gruesome and terrible, but awesome all the same. The thing is, Dunwall is being infested by plague rats, and they inform everything about the environment. The more people you kill in the game, and the more trouble you cause, the more rats and plague victims there are. The city reflects the way you play in a tangible way. There is some serious gameplay impact, but it also drives the emotional impact of the game.
Ain’t Them Bodies Saints premiered in January at Sundance 2013. The following Theatrical Premiere took place on Tuesday (August 13th) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The film stars Casey Affleck as Bob Muldoon and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) as Ruth Guthrie. These childhood sweethearts and partners-in-crime are on the lam, and just as the film begins, Ruth reveals that she is pregnant. Ain’t Them Bodies Saints does not follow a couple’s joyride; it begins as their crime spree comes to a screeching halt.
The art of filmmaking is a long and arduous process. The creative journey involved in producing a film, including writing, casting, filming, scoring, and editing, can take months - and sometimes years - to complete. That is why the creators and contestants involved in The 48-Hour Film Project are nothing short of amazing.
The 48-Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which teams of contestants make movies—write, shoot, edit, and score it—in just 48 hours. Starting on a Friday evening, each team receives a character, a prop, a line of dialogue, and a genre, all to include in their movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Following the weekend of intense work, the contestants have the chance to watch the fruits of their labor in a screening of all of the contestants films. In 2012, over 50,000 filmmakers made almost 4,000 films in 120 cities on 6 continents around the world. Since The 48-Hour Film Project's creation in 2001, over 19,000 films have been made by 278,000 people.

Hi, everyone. I’ve been enjoying a lovely vacation, but my editor insisted I get back to work. I’ve missed you. Anyway, Molly Danger is written and pencilled by Jamal Igle. He’s a DC guy, predominantly (Firestorm, Super Girl, and a bunch of single issues). He dabbles in animation (CGI) and has done some work with others (Marvel), as well. Good stuff. He’s pretty notable – if you don’t know him, you’ve probably seen his art and not known it.
Anyway, Molly Danger is a cool book. I know you loved The Powerpuff Girls (Who didn’t?!), and if you’re anything like me, your Bubbles Doll is a little . . . well used. The good news is the titular character of this series is a 10-year-old girl with all super strength, invulnerability, and reflexes, and stuff. So, you can retire your Bubbles doll . . . or take a break anyway, you freak.
