Jim Henson’s The Storyteller was a creative and captivating show that did all sorts of strange and wonderful things with fairytales from all different cultures. It put new twists on old tales—some familiar, some less so—and made them come alive as only the Jim Henson Company could. As a fan of all things Henson, as well as all types of folklore, the show was pretty much tailor-made for me. So, needless to say, I was very excited to read and review this new comic.

Coda was one of better comic book experiences I’d run across in some time. It was the first collaboration that I knew of from Si Spurrier and Matías Bergara. They gave me a unique vision. They used the scope of what fantasy could entail to tell a challenging story; it was something like no one else was doing. It was unhinged and yet focused, it was melancholic and yet hopeful, it was thrilling and yet meant something important. When it was done, I wanted more. Since the announcement of Step by Bloody Step, this was the “more,” and - boy howdy - is it even more than I expected.

As the title boldly states, this is a brand new continuation of the Firefly title, complete with rebranding, renumbering, and a new creative team at the helm. So, where are we now?

It appears a bit of time has passed, with Mal and Inara back in the mix, and Emma appears a bit older, too.

The end of the first season of Prime Video’s The Legend of Vox Machina is upon us, and it’s - to take a word from our favorite flirtatious merchant - glorious. The final three episodes of the show have taken a major turn, as the group of burgeoning heroes known as Vox Machina have continued their quest for revenge and the reclamation of Whitestone, the ancestral home of Vox Machina member Percival De Rolo. In doing this, they have discovered the intricate plot of the wicked Briarwoods, a power couple that has all the wrong intentions.
