Strip Talk #24: Get ready for the deluge of comic book movies

The del­uge of comic book movies these days is like heaven-sent mana for a geek like myself. The sheer vol­ume alone is over­whelm­ing, and the major­ity of them hap­pen to be good. I will prop­erly con­fess that I wasn’t antic­i­pat­ing … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #23: Animated Mario has wins, losses over the years

Car­toons, to me, fall in the same sphere as anime and comic books. If you tell a good story, I don’t care what medium you choose to tell it in. If it hap­pens to be about some­thing I love, chances … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #22: No fat-shaming allowed of any kind

Let’s be real for a moment: I am what you would call a fat girl. I’ve been fairly over­weight for a large por­tion of my adult life. It’s noth­ing I don’t already know and it’s noth­ing that I haven’t tried … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #21: Don’t let outside opinion sway your film loves

Lis­ten, there comes a time in the enter­tain­ment busi­ness that things (i.e. songs, movies, art) will be remade. And we will have to live with it. Just because some­thing is a clas­sic, that doesn’t mean it’s sacred and off lim­its. … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #20: When obnoxious behavior leaks into comic books

I’ve read quite a bit in the past sev­eral months about this ridicu­lous­ness where women in comics and games are harassed by men in the same indus­try, and I have but one word to that effect: Stop. No one deserves … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #19: Sometimes it’s OK to reserve judgment

Before we even get started, let’s not even ques­tion my TMNT legit­i­macy, OK? I am what you would call a super­fan. Check my cre­den­tials: I have most of the 1987 car­toon sea­sons on DVD, have had the theme song of … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #18: Days of Future Past isn’t a reality fast enough

  It’s no secret that I favor Mar­vel over DC in the grand scheme of comic book things. I always have: I began watch­ing X-Men: The Ani­mated Series almost as soon as the show began air­ing, and I’m far more … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #17: When the X-Men ruled the weekend

I grew up in a house­hold where Sat­ur­days were prized affairs of lazi­ness and doing absolutely as lit­tle as pos­si­ble. Mostly, we sat around read­ing romance nov­els (my mom), play­ing cards or board games or doing a lit­tle house­work well … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #16: Too many villains plague some comic films

Nearly every year that I’ve been alive and con­scious enough to know what’s going on in the world, there’s been a comic book movie released. And I take great pride in hav­ing seen the major­ity of the offer­ings out there. … Con­tinue read­ing

Strip Talk #15: I’ve learned a few lessons from cosplaying

I had a rea­son to cos­play once again. I usu­ally only have the urge to dress up and take on dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters once a year, and that’s because I’m going to NashiCon. My first and only anime con­ven­tion to date, … Con­tinue read­ing
