Paul Scheer Launches ‘The World’s Greatest Book Club’, A Digital Show Dedicated to Marvel Comics

During the heyday of ABC’s Lost, actor Paul Scheer (The League, Black Monday) was such a fan of the show that he became the go-to host for events surrounding the mystery series.

CS Soapbox: Hulu’s Devs Warms Up The Multiverse For Marvel

CS Soapbox: Hulu’s Devs Warms Up The Multiverse For Marvel Hugh Everett’s many-worlds theory implies that all possible outcomes of quantum measurements are realized in some world/universe. Popular culture, movies, and television shows steer towards a certain metaphor—trees growing an infinite number of branches (FX’s since-deceased show,  Legion  uses a tweaked-out protagonist and cold french fries). In layman’s terms, this means the Multiverse is real. Devs’ antagonist/quasi-antihero, Fo...

Zone out with 10 hours of ambient footage from Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum

On April 16, Marvel live streamed 10 hours of "footage" from outside Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum, which you can now watch in its entirety on YouTube. It's kind of like a Lovecraftian YuleLog, with spooky sounds and energy demons and ghastly spirits peeking through the windows. It's also kind of like going outside, but without actually going outside, and somehow less terrifying (but still kind of eerie).

The Mountain Goats have a new song about Marvel Comics with possibly the longest title ever

I've been writing overly-melodramatic rock n' roll bangers about comic books with long-ass titles for at least 15 years now. I had thought that I had achieved the pinnacle of this with my band's upcoming record. Tentatively titled, "A Collection of Songs About Comics Books and Mid-30s Malaise," it will include a dark synth-pop tune about Cyclops called "Every Girl Is An Apple," as well as a Cars-esque jam about Hawkeye called "My Life as a Weapon." This all of course follows up on our first n...
