We finally caught the final episode of The Orville, and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m also glad to hear about, and looking forward to the second season.  Our only outlet currently for new Star Trek has its cursing and dark anti-Trek themes locked behind a pay-wall.  Or, we can look forward to … [Read more…]

I Hate Fairyland Comic Book Review

I Hate Fairyland

I picked up the first volume of I Hate Fairyland back at C2E2 on a friend’s recommendation.  Right away the cover, and then the interior art, caught my eye.  The mayhem and humor I was told to expect was evident right away in Young’s pencils and Beaulieu’s colors.  The book follows Gert, a bitter and … [Read more…]
