DC’s New Slate of Films

2ND UPDATE: I did miss some good news. JJ Abrams race-swapped Superman and race-swapped John Constantine weren't mentioned in any capacity. Strongly indicating they have been shitcanned. Better news. Superman and Lois were listed as an Elseworld title, meaning the only diamond in the CW manure mountain has been saved. UPDATE: I missed an even bigger red flag. Crystal Henry who ran HBO's Watchmen and had Doctor Manhatten literally hand his balls to the woman as a symbol of transferring...

Arkhaven Spotlight: Wise of Heart

“It shall be unlawful for any teacher in any of the Universities, Normals and all other public schools of the State which are supported in whole or in part by the public school funds of the State, to teach any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals.​” This is the wording of the Tennessee Butler Act of 1925.   Despite...

New Tardis Interior

Remember Larry the Cucumber's joke? "The future's been white since the Seventies." Doctor Who is leaning into that big time with the new Tardis. Honestly, as someone who was a fan of the OG series,, I don't hate it. There. See? I can like stuff. It happens.

The Dark Herald Recommends: In Defense of the Second Amendment by Larry Correia

This book is a handy all-in-one reference guide for anyone who wants to have an actual discussion with someone who is on the fence about armed self-defense. It’s also useful for bashing idiots who don’t have the slightest idea what they’re talking about.  You aren’t going to convince them because you will never convince the mentally ill using facts and logic.  You aren’t going to convince them with rhetoric either although that is the only thing they will ever use to “convince” anyone...

Disney Is Coming Back to Chinese Theaters

With Nike CEO Parker as Disney’s Chairman of the Board and Iger as CEO again, the Middle Kingdom has apparently had a change of heart about Marvel movies. Starting next month Wakanda Forever will be coming to Chinese theaters.  Where they will decidedly underperform. The Han just aren’t interested in an American 1970s vision for a fantasy Africa. They have their own vision for Africa.   And we get called colonizers. Anyway, Antman 3 also has a release date.  Now this film is more likely to...

HardDrive-By: Ion Fury

When I first saw it, I tried to remember when I had first seen it and I couldn’t.  Because I hadn’t. Ion Fury is two things that should NOT exist this deep into the 21st century.  A new game built on the 1990s era Build engine and a good old fashioned Doom clone. For those who would like a gentle reminder, the first wave of Doom clones were the actual authentic Doom clones, which is to say they were built on the Doom engine licensed...

Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser On Life Support

Newly re-enthroned CEO Bob Iger visited Disney World last week.  This really doesn’t happen too often.  Disney is headquartered in Burbank, which means it’s not only a cross country flight but it’s trip deep into the heart of redness.  As I have stated before, while Disney Burbank executives discuss what Rachel Madow had to say last night around the water cooler, WDW chieftains chat about Tucker Carlson over beer.  These two parts of Disney h-a-t-e each other. None the less, Iger felt compelled to put on his...

Amazon Runs “The Future of Comic Books” Into the Ground

Yeah, it sure was. Comixology was always a bad idea. Although, it was an understandable one. It started life in 2007 as a fansite, it had articles on shared interests, upcoming issues, cover art and artists, in short it was fulfilling the functions that old Wizard Magazine used to provide.  It also had tools for brick and mortar comics shops.   Finally it launched an online comic book reader. In 2013 Amazon tried to get into comic books by publishing their own line called...
