Kamandi #35 - Jack Kirby art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert Kamandi v1 #35, 1975 - Traveling through space aboard Pyra's spaceship, a curious Kamandi boards the ancient Russian spacecraft Soyuz. Jack Kirby's plot and imagery begins slowly and methodically, building towards a more typical climax in the end.

The Friday The 13th Case May Potentially Be Over

It's been 13 years since we've had a new "Friday the 13th" movie, and there's a good chance that number is only going to get bigger. For the uninitiated, there's been an active legal battle between Sean Cunningham, the director of the original "Friday the 13th" and Horror Inc. vs. Victor Miller, the screenwriter for "Friday the 13th" and thereby creator of franchise characters Pamela Voorhees, Alice Hardy, and Jason himself. Miller filed a copyright termination to regain the rights to "Friday th...

Every Star Wars Easter Egg You May Have Missed In The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 1

Robert Rodriguez is a big nerd, so it's only natural that "The Book of Boba Fett" is packed with "Star Wars" Easter eggs and references -- from returning characters like Max Rebo to a cameo by Rodriguez himself. The "Alita: Battle Angel" filmmaker is an executive producer on the show and directed the first episode, which landed on Disney+ today.In "Stranger in a Strange Land," Boba Fett finds that it takes a little more to establish yourself as Tatooine's resident crime boss than simply sitting ...

The 15 Best Law And Order: SVU Characters Ranked

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," colloquially known as "Law & Order: SVU" or simply "SVU," is creator Dick Wolf's best entry in the franchise. It's the de facto show to watch while doing laundry and washing dishes. It carries such an episodic verve that fans can happily sit and watch an episode they've seen dozens of times before, simply because it's on (and it's on a lot). It's also, as of 2021, the longest-running primetime live-action show in history, with the show airing its 500th episod...

This article includes frank discussion of spoilers from "Spider-Man: No Way Home")"Spider-Man" fans have had an emotional few weeks. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is a painful, bittersweet end to Tom Holland's first Peter Parker trilogy, but it also brings unexpected catharsis for past Peter Parkers as well. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both strapped on their web slingers for the new film, and their Peter Parkers came into the MCU with complex backstories and baggage of their own.According to a...

The 15 Best Star Wars Side Characters

Star Wars isn't only defined by the Skywalker Saga. The series contains multitude of tales fueled by the humans, aliens, and droids who help or hinder the heroes, many of whom exist outside of the main storyline. As Star Wars expanded into other materials -- spinoff films like "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," TV shows like the Disney+ series "The Mandalorian," comics, novels, and more -- it became as clear as the stars that these players don't need the Jedi by their side.The Star Wars galaxy is e...

Search Party Review: The Satire Pivots Wildly During An All-In Final Season

Few comedies have ever made as many hard left turns in their lifespan as "Search Party." The series, which began on TBS before moving to HBO Max, will finish its five-season run in January looking almost nothing like it did at the start. In season 1, the show followed four vapid friends as they looked for a missing college classmate. By season 5, the group has started a doomsday cult. Somehow, despite the bizarre last-minute transformation, the show still ends on a resounding high note.When we l...

The Best Adult Animation Of 2021

"It's not enough to give people what they need to survive, you have to give them what they need to live." This quote from Netflix's "League of Legends" spin-off "Arcane" resonated particularly strongly in 2021. With the COVID-19 crisis still ongoing and the effects of rampant wealth inequality becoming more evident than ever, generations of adults — and a number of impending adults — are realizing that they deserve better than the bureaucratic systems they're saddled with. Animation crafted for ...

The 15 Best Movie Trailers Of 2021

To talk about the best trailer of 2021, we should first discuss an ad that often followed them."Heartbreak feels good in a place like this" -- that's one of many dazzling non-sequiturs Nicole Kidman offered in an AMC spot this year, one which found the cinema legend in a private screening room enjoying "Creed," "La La Land," and countless other movies. Questionable movie night programming and general strangeness aside, the ad is almost uncomfortably sincere. It suggests, at its best, that the ac...

Can You Watch The Book Of Boba Fett Without Seeing The Mandalorian?

How accessible is to someone who isn't a "Star Wars" superfan? What if you're like me, and you've seen some of the movies, watched the occasional "Clone Wars" episode, and still hasn't gotten around to watching "The Mandalorian" despite their daughter's current obsession with Grogu? That's the question I'm here to answer, having spent my morning/early afternoon sipping a boba latte while getting acquainted with Boba Fett.In order to properly answer the titular question, I established a few gui...

The first episode of "The Book Of Boba Fett" has dropped on Disney+, finally giving us a deeper look into the longtime fan-favorite bounty hunter. We've seen Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) make a splash in the original "Star Wars" trilogy (before seemingly dying in the Sarlacc pit), return as Jango Fett's young cloned son in "Attack of the Clones" and "The Clone Wars," and be probably the best part of the infamous "Star Wars Holiday Special," but Boba Fett's return as a seasoned adult in "The Mand...
