GWC #321: Avengers Pt. 4, Thor

The Avengers release grows ever closer as we take a look at the general public’s introduction to Marvel’s Norse god Thor. We find inspiration in Thor’s each-day-at-a-time attitude. We dig into the similarities between Shakespeare’s plays and comic superhero stories, concluding that superhero tales may have a much longer lifespan of cultural significance than many […]

What’s Your Con Personality? Delights & Differences of Comic-Con and Dragon*Con

I just returned from my first Dragon*Con and my head is still spinning. I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t think any event could match Comic-Con for geek impact and intensity, but I was wrong. A lot of people like to compare the two Cons in a heated exchange. I think this is unnecessary. Both are […]


Koenig Touts Possible New B5, Straczynski Denies

Fans at last week’s Las Vegas Star Trek convention got a bit of a shocker from Walter Koenig. His quote (via “[J. Michael Staczynski] told me that he is in negotiations to re-acquire the rights to Babylon 5 and it looks pretty good. Now what that portends I am not entirely sure. It could […]
