By | Oct 22, 2020 | Reviews

I was very excited for the new Dune movie that was going to be coming out this year. Everyone involved seemed to be a fan of the books, the studio had pulled out all the stops when it came to money, and the trailer looked awesome. We were going to get a massive, glorious, and […]

“Getting it Together” #1

By | Sep 11, 2020 | Reviews

I don’t follow video games for reasons that we will not get into here, but even I’m aware of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 through the considerable amount of hype that it’s generated. I’ll admit, the idea of playing through an incredibly detailed and fantastic cyberpunk world sounds like a lot of fun. However, I’m […]

“Fantastic Four: Antithesis” #1

By | Aug 27, 2020 | Reviews

When you compare the modern pop culture footprint of Marvel heavyweights such as Iron Man or Spider-Man to the Fantastic Four it’s almost sad to see how far the First Family of Marvel has fallen. Granted, in the wider scope of things it does make sense considering that every movie the Fantastic Four have been […]

Should a story be about big ideas and large groups of people or should a story be smaller and more personal? There’s no definitive answer to that question, but it’s important for writers to figure out what they’re trying to say when creating a story.
