4.0 – Peak Star Wars

January 8, 2016 1

It’s time to discuss Star Wars: The Force Awakens! But first we share our fun picks for this week. They happen to be: Moebius Models, Hellboy Library Edition Vol. 4, Plotted: a Literary Atlas and the Merrily Watkins series.)

Then turn down the volume, non-moviegoers, for it’s *SPOILER ALERT* time! We discuss the new Star Wars movie from every angle (ring composition or rehash?) and reach our own conclusions. May the Force be with y’all!

December 31, 2015 0

un3Another year bites the dust! We reveal the New Years resolutions we plan to keep (and those we probably won’t). Then we share the stories we’re most looking forward to in 2016. (Spoiler alert: The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley, Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal, the new Black Panther series by Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie)
From there we move on to the year in writing, and finally what we’re reading right now. (More spoilers: Hostage to the Devil by Malachi Martin (see George’s review here), Grace of Kings by Ken LiuVermilion: The Adventures of Lou Merriwether, Psychopomp by Molly Tanzer, and Valour and Vanity by Mary Robinette Kowal)
Also, R.I.P. Lemmy Kilmister.
As an added bonus, we also discuss Dark Age, Lego Dimensions Wonder Woman, and My Amityville Horror. So many links, so little time.
Happy New Year! Unless you’re listening after the fact, in which case we hope 2016 is treating (or has treated) you with favor.
