by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Don’t worry, bro.  None of this is canon.” That’s how Uncle Grandpa, star of a show so tonally divorced from Steven Universe that absolutely none of this should work at all, pops into Beach City.  What follows is a bizarre adventure that’s equal parts Terry Gilliam cartoon, bad anime, and Fourth Wall demolition session.  Steven, frustrated by his inability […]
