DARK SCIENCE-FICTION MINISERIES OUT THIS MARCH, LITTLE BIRD, EXPLORES AN ULTRA-NATIONALIST NORTH AMERICA

Director/screenwriter Darcy Van Poelgeest LITTLE BIRD #1 cover artboasts a long list of awards and accolades for his storytelling prowess and brings the same writing finesse to Ian Bertram’s breathtakingly detailed artwork in the gorgeous, hyper-detailed miniseries Little Bird launching from Image Comics this March.

“Little Bird is really just Ian and I sitting down and creating a comic we really want to read, inhabited with characters we genuinely love,” said Van Poelgeest. “It’s been an exciting and emotional journey creating this book, and I can’t wait for others to join us on that journey.”

Bertram burst onto the scene with his haunting, macabre collaboration with Peter J. Tomasi on House of Penance, the eerie, unsettling comic series about the Winchester haunted house. He brings a similarly intricate inking style to the pages of Little Bird.

With the same limitless scope as a new East of West or Saga—and the drama and surrealism of Akira—Little Bird follows a young resistance fi…

Movie Review: Fun, Bombastic "Aquaman" Struggles To Find It's Sea Legs

AQUAMAN
Starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, 
Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman
Screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick & Will Beal
Directed by James Wan


Out of Four

Aquaman is nobody's favorite superhero. Oh sure, plenty of others have been referred to that way, but for Aquaman, it's pretty much his defining characteristic. His reputation for dorkiness has long made him primarily a punchline in popular culture. The strange dichotomy of modern fandom is that are still likely to be a lot of people throwing hissy fits over Warner Bros and DC making changes to the character's traditional persona, especially since the ethnic makeover involved in casting Jason Momoa smacks of the dreaded "political correctness" so feared by a section of fanboys. As such, this is a character that is inherently challenging to make the center of his own big screen epic, and the poor reputation of the DC Extended Universe doesn't ex…

Torchwood’s Captain John Hart returns

Torchwood: The Sins Of Captain John From Big Finish James Marsters, the star of cult television shows Buffy, Angel, Smallville and recent hit Runaways, reprises the role of Captain John Hart for his own adventures in the Torchwood audio universe.
