I don’t even know where to start. Most of the week and all of the weekend has been dominated by New York Comic Con and everything a 4 day con entails. People have been busy and as you can imagine shenanigans have been low on everyone’s list of priorities. That said there has been some good stuff. And some not so good stuff.

This week the news dropped that Ava Duvernay will direct a HBO pilot based on known sex pest Brian Wood’s DMZ proving once again that allegations of sexual assault and misconduct can ruin a man’s career but probably never actually will.

Multiple fans and critics have reached out to Ava since the reveal but she has so far made no comment.
