Studios will soon be releasing Fiction Squad #3 on Wednesday, December 3rd, written by Paul Jenkins and illustrated by Ramon Bachs.

Breaking Wonder Woman? The WW Movie Nabs a Director! After much pontification, Michelle MacLaren has been tapped to direct the 2017-slated release of the Wonder Woman feature film. MacLaren has directing and producing credits that include The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Breaking Bad. Not a bad rap sheet, if I do say so myself. DC made it loud and clear that they were on the hunt for a female director for the silver screen debut of the amazing Amazon.
The Future Will Be Carpeted: An Analysis of ‘Deep Space Nine (S2E19)’ “It is a good day to die.”
    -- Lieutenant Jadzia Dax


Star Trek has always had a complicated relationship with its past. As forward thinking as the show is, it remains stubbornly mired in the time period in which it was made. The cheesy sets and optimism of TOS mark it as a child of the ‘60s, the wall-to-wall carpeting and a therapist on the bridge crew mark TNG as a product of the ‘80s, the jittery camera work and focus on mindless action mark the reboot as modern, and so on. Subsequent entries in the franchise always struggle to differentiate themselves from their predecessors, and sometimes these go far enough to suggest embarrassment. To reach a wider audience, the new entry has to look down, blush, and mutter, “Okay, I guess the Gorn look a little silly now . . . but there’s some other cool things . . . ” As much guff as DS9 gets for being un-Treklike, it is the only one of the modern shows that proudly wears its love for TOS on its sleeve.
‘Jim Henson’s Storyteller: Witches #3’ - Comic Book Review The Storyteller series was one of my favorite Jim Henson creations, doing what he did best: telling amazing stories in interesting ways.  Blending live action with creatures from the shop, the Storyteller featured John Hurt’s incredible presence weaving tales of the old world, with very little in the way of censoring the unfortunate or scary events, but leaving the tales complete with the bits usually removed for children.
‘Bullet Gal #6:’ Advance Comic Book Review It’s the Christmas issue of Bullet Gal, and so of course, we begin with our heroine lying bleeding on the ground after being shot. By now, we should know to expect nothing less of Andrez Bergen’s gritty noir comic. Of course, it’s not exactly a Christmas-themed issue, but it does feature a Santa hat on the front cover.
