Marvel’s Inhumans is the latest comic book series to the small screen. Is the Inhumans series on par with other Marvel tv series like Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD?

For this podcast, I have Jennifer from Earth Station MCU podcast as a special guest to help with this very question.




This is it. This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. 4 DC Shows over 4 nights to battle 1 major villain – The Dominators.  (more…)

arrow_wonder_woman_split_-_h_2012Well… well… well. Wonder Woman, huh? It seems that this may be just more talk than action. I’m mean seriously, do I want to see Wonder Woman? Fuck yeah!!!! But when do we get it? Seriously folks, can we a WW off the ground sometime before I die? Eventually but let’s not rush into things. Hera give me strength.

Could Green Arrow and Wonder Woman co-exist on the same network?

With the CW a month away from launching its take on DC Comics’ Green Arrow, the network seems eager to have its Stephen Amell starrer Arrow potentially joined by another member of the Justice League: Wonder Woman.

The network is eyeing an origin story for the famed female superhero, exploring Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana of Themyscira in Amazon, which is in the early stages of development under comics scribe Allan Heinberg. (Coincidentally, he co-penned a five-issue JLA arc with DC’s Geoff Johns.)

The Shadow movie

Our understanding of the world is largely determined by our ability to organize information. Where do you live? What do you do? Who are you? Our answers reveal the systems of classifications that for the very foundations of our understanding. Chapter 5

This was a loaded statement when I read this the first time. I am currently living into worlds: one of librarian and the other as a patron. I have been a patron longer than I have been a librarian. I have used the library many times in my life for many reasons. I wanted to learn how to make a movie and went to the library, used the card catalog, and found the books I needed. Prior to this, I did have instructions from my old school librarian which did play a role in using the public library. However, if I had little to no training, how could I find what I needed? Yes, there could be a librarian who could help me but what if I was left to my own devices? When I look at the world of Dewey, I can appreciate the concept of organization but from user point of view; it’s not user friendly. Unlike a bookstore where there are more laymen subject headings, the public library does try to have a similar approach. For me, when I look at graphic novels there are several ways to organize the books by. (Note, I had worked at Borders Bookshop in Miami where I had the number 1 sales in the company when there where only 47 stores.) We had Marvel Comics, DC, Dark Horse and other independent publishing companies. I broke up the books by the different companies and then within each company there different series alpha by title. When it comes to Dewey, the books are arranged alpha by the author. This would make sense if you were following a particular author’s work. Needless to say, growing up on comics, all I cared about was the story of my favorite characters and books: X-Men, Daredevil, JLA, Teen Titans and so on. Read on what Dewey does:
