Jim Parsons spills on how growing up in a homophobic culture impacted his life

Jim Parsons as agent Henry Willson in Netlfix show, Hollywood (Photo: Netflix) “I realized that being gay and growing up around people and in a culture where that wasn’t celebrated – where it was reviled, in many ways – had an impact on me. Happy as I am, I’m still working out the fear I grew up with: that by revealing who I really am, I will somehow lose the love of the people who are important to me. This story wasn’t a direct reflection of my time, and things have changed rapidly for ga...

Cynthia Nixon blasts JK Rowling over transphobia: “It was really painful”

Cynthia Nixon, JK Rowling. Via Wikimedia Commons Sex and the City star and former New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon has publicly slammed Harry Potter author JK Rowling over Rowling’s ongoing attacks on transgender people. Nixon, who identifies as a lesbian herself, spoke about the effect the author’s transphobic attacks had on Nixon’s 23-year-old transgender son, Samuel. “It was really painful for him because so much of his childhood was tied up with Harry Potter,” Nixon told The...

WATCH: Michael Henry has a WAP problem

It seems like everybody has a renewed appreciation for hydration following the success of Cardi B.’s single “WAP.” Just ask comedian Michael Henry, who released a video on the subject. The new sketch finds Michael and friends Wilson & Pete planning to toilet paper a neighbor’s house, when a loud “squishy” noise gives them all pause. As the gang starts to extoll the virtues of their own WAPs, one friend runs off in disgrace. Though Wilson insists that he has a WAP, Michael and Pete know better. ...

Paul Rudnick takes on Trump lovers in ‘Coastal Elites:’ “They seem terribly upset all the time”

Dan Levy in ‘Coastal Elites’ Via YouTube Screenshot We guarantee that even if you don’t know the name Paul Rudnick, you’ve probably quoted him before. The New Jersey-born humorist/playwright/screenwriter first made a splash with the Broadway comedy I Hate Hamlet. His subsequent off-Broadway play, Jeffery, announced him as a major talent on the rise. It also proved wildly controversial, as one of the first (and to date, only) comedies to take on the AIDS crisis. Rudnick migrated to Hollywood t...

The Boys in the Band Is this damn pandemic over yet? Thank goodness for movies and TV, which have helped us keep sane during this ongoing period of lockdown and social distancing.

Guess which X-Men character just came out of the closet…

Marvel comics has just made an announcement after 40 years of speculation: the beloved X-Men character Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat is bisexual. Kitty (or Kate, as she currently prefers) came out in Mauraduers #12 when fans spotted her sharing a kiss with a female tattoo artist. The kiss ended four decades of speculation by fans, who often commented that Kitty seemed to have more than just a passing interest in some of her female teammates.

Virtually Yours

Virtually Yours is what I want more of in comics — a romantic comedy with a unique premise. Eva is living at home looking for a journalism job. To get her parents off her back, at her sister’s suggestion, she gets a fake boyfriend from Virtually Yours. The company exists to provide proof of relationships for people in similar situations; it’s an anti-dating app. This way, she can focus on her career without her parents worrying. Max is a former [...]

Missing Con? Watch Us Talk About It

Heidi MacDonald wrote about the economic effects of a year without conventions. There have been no big shows since C2E2 in Chicago at the end of February, and everything else has been cancelled (except for ReedPop’s New York show in October, but I can’t see that happening). Heidi also does a convention-based podcast called “Women in a Hotel Room” that I’ve been part of. The most recent were two C2E2 episodes, found in that link above, and we also had [...]

The Comic Big Two Isn’t What You Think

Brian Hibbs’ yearly BookScan analysis is always worth reading for the insight it gives into how comics (mostly in the form of graphic novels and collections) sell in the wider book market (even with the caveats that this data doesn’t cover the entire market, only those that choose to report, and the data providers have their own restrictions, even more this year). The 2019 analysis ends with this particular pie chart that I found striking. The “comic big two” was [...]

Review / Among Trees

Among Trees is an exploration game set in woods abundant with life and light. The environment is so charming and mysterious it seems like a dream. Leaves tremble in the pink glow of dawn. Shadows crawl from the setting sun. Rabbits and deer prance in the mist. In early access, FJRD Interactive's first release is nonetheless yet to gain a narrative or meaningful goals. It's just a woman waking in the woods, chancing upon a ramshackle hut, and deciding to make a home of it. The game's aesthetic i...

Young Charlotte, Filmmaker

I was reminded how much I enjoyed Frank Viva’s work during a recent re-read of A Trip to the Bottom of the World With Mouse, so I thought I’d check out some of his other picture books. I should have done that earlier, since Young Charlotte, Filmmaker was perfect for me. Produced by The Museum of Modern Art in New York, it’s the story of a young woman who adores black and white and makes her own movies. Sometimes she’s [...]

Bernband: explore a looming yet intimate alien city

My first moments in Tom van den Boogaart's Bernband (Free Download), a goalless exploration game set in the mazelike city of Pff, led me to expect an empty low-fi walking sim. A drab apartment in a looming building. A window view of city lights in darkness. A spartan hallway leading to an elevator. Then something happened: the elevator's doors spilled me out into a dense crowd of sprites, dozens of people right up in my face, jostling and stumbling around the forecourt. Covid-brain kicked in and...

Science Comics: Crows: Genius Birds

Science Comics: Crows: Genius Birds by Kyla Vanderklugt offers amazing insight into just how intelligent these birds are. That’s why I love this series: I had no idea about any of these facts before reading, and now I am fascinated by corvids (crows, magpies, jays, and ravens). Vanderklugt beautifully navigates between drawing the bird as a bird and giving it the personality it needs to attract the reader and keep them interested. The crow gets a dog, Buddy, to help [...]

Doctor Who: The Runaway TARDIS

The latest Pop Classics storybook from Quirk Books is my favorite. Doctor Who: The Runaway TARDIS is, as with the others, illustrated by Kim Smith, who has a gorgeous, approachable, colorful style. The other credit is “based on the series by Chris Chibnall”, which means it’s the thirteenth Doctor, with a likeness to Jodie Whittaker. I’ve previously covered The Karate Kid and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and this follows the same pattern: The movie books retell the story, but the [...]

A Brief Complete History of Minx, DC’s Imprint for Girls

Minx was DC’s imprint aimed at teen girls, first announced in 2006. It ran for two years before being shuttered in fall 2008 due to distribution struggles (not reaching the bookstores they aimed for) and potentially, lack of interest. I thought I’d sum up its history and releases, now that it would have been old enough to have read itself. DC was somewhat late to the party, since Scholastic had already launched Graphix and there were tons of girls reading [...]

Yotsuba&! Volume 14

The thing about Yotsuba&! is that I could pretty much repeat the first half of my review of the previous volume, because the series is that consistently good. It’s still the reading equivalent of really well done comfort food. There’s still a number of years between releases. It’s still about a child’s imagination mixed with humor and good feeling and family and the occasional moment of poignancy. The main difference with Yotsuba&! volume 14 comes in the activities Yotsuba and [...]
