We are committed to intersectionality and internationality (our diverse staff hails from Canada, the UK, Switzerland, Brazil, and the United States).

DC Comics Super-Villains: The Complete Visual History Review

Okay, I guess I should start with my bias—I’ve never read a “complete visual history” book that I loved. Yet, I always go back, and when I see a book like this on somebody’s table, I get excited enough to flip through it. I find them perfect for brief reads while sitting on a couch being forced to watch some stupid show I’m not into or while sitting on the toilet for extended periods of time. I want to say that DC Comics Super-Villains: The Complete Visual History was different, I want to say that I started reading it...

Marvel’s All New Black Cap; Publicity Stunt or Diversity Stride?

Marvel announced that Sam Wilson would replace the elderly Steve Rogers as Captain America way back in July.

GOG.com Ready to Sell DRM-Free Movies and TV Shows

GOG.com—my favourite DRM-free game distributor—is expanding its reach to movies and TV-Shows! Okay, so right now their selection of TV shows and movies is pretty dismal (they’re starting with 21 independent documentaries), but it’s the beginning of what I hope will be an ongoing trend. Let me level with you here: I’m not really looking at this objectively . . . I think DRM is, at the very least, in need of some major reform. So, I’m inclined to support most initiatives that undermine it. For those of you who don’t know what DRM (Digital Rights Management) is, let...
