Levius – Haruhisa Nakata Manga Review ( Vol 1 )

Levius (レビウス) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Haruhisa Nakata. The series was published in Shogakukan’s Monthly Ikki from December 2012 to September 2014, when the magazine ceased publication. Shogakukan compiled its chapters into three tankōbon volumes. I had originally wanted to collect these Japanese tankobons because I prefer to read mangas in their original Japanese language, but just like Blade Of The Immortal, I found out this English edition by Viz comics is in h...

The End of the Beginning of the End of Marvel Comics - an editorial

People have spent a lot of time talking about the health of DC Comics this past year or so especially after they fired a lot of their staff and  AT&T threw up the bolus of Time-Warner it was choking on, but Marvel, while ensconced in the big fat arms of Disney, is at much at risk. Recently, comics in their kids lines were published by IDW starting in 2018, but that deal was canceled this year. And we also saw Marvel actually dropping some titles like Fantastic Four that they didn't control the m...

Guillermo Del Toro Reveals His Scrapped Original Story For Pacific Rim 2

Guillermo del Toro might be on a media blitz for his new noir movie "Nightmare Alley," but he doesn't seem to have any problems dishing about his older projects, specifically the sci-fi monster mash that was "Pacific Rim." The director talked openly about his idea for a sequel to the 2013 film and it sounds pretty wild. Would the "Pacific Rim" still be flourishing if del Toro was able to make his sequel? Would it have kicked off a serious sci-fi monster movie trend? Would we be living in a world...

Why Patrick Stewart Was Terrified To Take On The Role Of Jean-Luc Picard

"Change is the essential process of all existence." When Spock said that, he was absolutely right -- change is absolutely an important part of being alive. However, that doesn't make change any less scary. Big changes in one's life can certainly be intimidating for everybody. Even people that are seemingly fearless, like Starfleet officers, can find change to be daunting. So if you think that the Captain of the Starship Enterprise may be immune to that fear, think again. Things Are Only Impossib...

Avril Lavigne Is Turning Her Song Sk8er Boi Into A Movie, Can We Make It Any More Obvious

In 1597, William Shakespeare introduced us to the star-crossed lovers of "Romeo & Juliet," falling in love in spite of their warring families. In 1957, the beloved musical "West Side Story" introduced the world to the tale of love being found in the midst of two rivaling street gangs. And in 2002, 17-year-old Avril Lavigne loudly declared "he was a punk, she did ballet," in her hit single "Sk8er Boi," adding yet another couple to the legion of romances found in the unlikeliest of places.In honor...

Why Deadwood Was Canceled – Here's What We Know

"Deadwood" ran from 2004 to 2006 on HBO, and during that time, it constantly reminded viewers that death was just around the corner. In the Old West town of Deadwood, located in the South Dakota territory, residents were just as likely to die from rogue kidney stones as they were in a classic cowboy gunfight. Death was inevitable, and even sometimes comical. Yet it still came as a surprise when the show itself was killed off after three acclaimed seasons.The series follows the exploits of settle...
