‘Steven Universe 2×12: We Need To Talk’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Get open, get honest. That’s fusion.” Most shows with fantasy conceits similar to fusion use it as part of an ongoing game of power creep, ratcheting up the stakes by combining existing characters into newer, shoutier, more powerful versions of themselves. Leave it to Steven Universe to make it an expression of connection and love, a sort-of-but-not-quite […]

‘Hannibal 3×03: Secondo’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“This room holds sound and motion, great snakes wrestling and heaving in the dark.” One by one the figurative dead are passing through the mouth of the cathedral at Palermo and into the vastness of Hannibal’s palace. What they seek there differs from person to person. Inspector Pazzi sees a chance to recapture glory by […]

E3 2015: Into the Pixel – The Art of E3

by Guest

Written by Abid Gangat When I walked through the doors of the LA Convention Center I didn’t think I would find myself looking and marveling at pieces of artwork created from some of the worlds most well known video games, but that is exactly what happened. I am of course talking about Into the Pixel, […]

‘Steven Universe 2×08: Keeping It Together’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I wish you hadn’t seen that.” This is a dang kids’ show, y’all. ‘Keeping It Together’ takes a long, unnerving look at something Steven Universe has had on its radar since ‘Frybo,’ season 1′s early gross-out fest: voluntary and involuntary dynamics. The show has bumped up against the idea softly and repeatedly in its portrayals of imperfect people trying […]

E3 2015: Welcome to E3

by Guest

Written by Abid Gangat Walking into the LA Convention Center this morning I was greeted by what I can only describe as organised chaos, with the spectacle of hundreds of industry members walking around with an air of nervousness and excitement about them. It was as though they were all there for their very first […]

‘Steven Universe 2×07: Rising Tides / Crashing Skies’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I’m so brave to be doing this.” ‘Rising Tides / Crashing Skies’ is that rare character study that offers insight without demanding that the audience render up sympathy. Ronaldo Fryman is a typical teenage boy in that, whether it’s acclaim or love, he believes the world owes him something. The faux-’Loose Change’ format of his delightfully […]

Graphic Novel Review: ‘The King in Yellow’

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to horror especially in fiction I always find myself looking to H.P Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe at times because I like the way they take the normal things in life and pull the extraordinary into them, be it by the extraordinary or the morbid. When watching True Detective they introduced us […]

‘Steven Universe 2×06: Sworn to the Sword’ Review

“Why won’t you just let me do this for you, Rose?” After an uneven front end and a lengthy break, season 2′s first week-long Steven Bomb of new episodes starts with ‘Sworn to the Sword,’ a heartfelt success that touches on selflessness, friendship, and the relationship between “special” and “normal” people in science fiction and fantasy.

LEGO seems to be something that is universally loved, unless we stand on a piece of it then we end up swearing at it of course!  When Minecraft was created we were given a huge world created by blocks, and you could either try to fight for survival or just be creative and build whatever you want.  […]
