Soul Eater, the anime series about scythe miester Maka and her scythe-human hybrid partner Soul and her band of monster hunting friends, was one of my most influential anime series. It’s haunted aesthetic, great fights, animation, and fun characters made a giant impact on my teenage years. It was a series I watched three times in a row back on YouTube when companies would post … Continue reading Digging into Maddness (or I finally finished the Soul Eater Manga): my White Whale
Even as specifically horror season ends it is still getting cooler and darker, still spooky. So I figure it’s fine enough reason to finally look at the first in DC Comics and Joe Hill’s Hill House series: Basket Full of Heads. Joe Hill, the son of horror legend Stephen King, has had his share of smash works that I never got to experience correctly. Locke … Continue reading Basket Full of Heads will Roll (a Comic Review)
Since the release of Disney+ they have done a total of two good things, both of which I covered. The first is making the forgotten X-Men Evolution available in full for all. The second is releasing a version of Hamilton for everyone… with the service. But there is a third thing they can do: dub and release Heroman. Oh, you don’t know what Heroman is? … Continue reading The THIRD best thing Disney+ Can Do (A look at Heroman)
Umbrella Academy Season One felt like a message to the world that Netflix didn’t need Marvel or DC heroes to make a riveting, stylish, strongly character driven series. It was such a breath of fresh air that ended on a really good cliffhanger. The problem, now, is that it’s a season two and Netflix series are infamous for not having success trying to follow up … Continue reading Umbrella Academy Season 2 is a Better Second Season than Most (a Review)
Sometimes you see such an on the nose, schlocky title that you just have to watch it and hope it isn’t another Iron Fist This is true for Netflix’s most recent comic book adaptation, Warrior Nun. Based on the series by Ben Dunn called Warrior Nun Areala, this show follows Ava. Ava, a quadrapalegic orphan who dies under suspicious circumstances is resurrected when the church … Continue reading Warrior Nun is a YA Novel (a Review)
I stated before and probably will again that Watchmen the comic fascinates me. It is considered to be the best comic book ever written. A true novel onto itself that just so happens to have drawings. It’s one of the greatest stories ever told that somehow can’t be translated to another medium, and if it does is worse for it. None of this is important … Continue reading The Problem with Watchmen
I’m kind of obsessed with Watchmen. Not in the normal way people are, thinking it’s a great book and all. Instead I see it as one of the most interesting case studies in telling a story over different mediums (I had this whole comparison on the book and movie idea that I never carried through with but sounds good). In addition to how the story … Continue reading Is HBOs Watchmen Really THAT Good?
This is a wierd post, huh? Not something I usually do at all. Anyway… My eBay Link: https://ebay.com/usr/connorfahy1013 I am moving and in that process am trying to sell some of my media to clear space. This is not a cry for help or financial support (but it won’t hurt) because I am fine in that regard. Instead this is just a signal boost to … Continue reading I’m Selling Stuff!
There has been so much talk about what being an evil Superman would be like. From the dozens of comics and alt-universe stories to Brightburn, the film advertised as “Superman but bad,” to even the parody title of this post “Bad Superman” but Scouting for Girls they all have their takes on evil Superman. The problem with those takes is that none of them feel … Continue reading Don’t You Understand Dexter’s Bad Superman
This has been a long time waiting to come, the return to looking at Edens Zero by Hiro Mashima. The previous volume was a fun enough, and pretty self contained romp as the crew grew and learned more about Homura and search for her master, Valkyrie, the last connection to the old Demon King. Volume 7 picks up with Shiki and Homura being punished for … Continue reading A Volume-by-Volume Checkin of Edens Zero: Volume 7
