ANT-tonio Banderes? ANT-tony? Don’t let the title fool you, this week the hosts talk about “Antman and the Wasp”! James and Giselle discuss the movie along with the characters of Hope and Janet. They also came up with the story for the third Spiderman movie, hence the episode title, and you are welcome in advance.

 

KICKSTARTER ALERT! Support ‘Expiration Date: The Complete Edition’

Back at WonderCon 2012 my friend Missy and I were walking around the Artist’s Alley and we stumbled upon a booth that had this comic with a wickedly illustrated cover. It had an awesome futuristic Tron cyber punk vibe that I totally dug. The man at the booth, artist Lee Wiley, started to chat with us and he told us more about this comic he illustrated called Expiration Date.

The more he told me about the story, written by Robert Zappia, the more I knew I had to check it out. Dystopian future, political conspiracy, assassination, and a hero with a haunted past? Yes, please! Lee was awesome enough to give me a copy to review for the site, and ever since I read that first issue I have been hooked (read our review for Expiration Date #1).

Here we are at 2016 and now the final issue of Expiration Date is going to be released in October. On top of that Wiley and Zappia are running a Kickstarter to fund Expiration Date: The Complete Edition which will over 200 pages of the entire freaking saga! Ahh! (Click here for the Kickstarter page.)

“Why do I need to check this out,” you ask? “Why should I throw my money at them,” you ask?

Well, let me tell you. Expiration Date takes place in a dystopian future where overpopulation is controlled by the SY9 capsule. It is implanted in the heart of every person and will randomly go off killing the host in their sleep, or, “expiring” them. One day a presidential candidate gains a lot of popularity on the platform that he wants to discontinue the SY9 system of population control.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: Kylo Ren and Jar Jar Luv

Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!

One of my new favorite things is making fun of Kylo Ren. I mean, how can I not? That guy is the ultimate emo wah wah call the waaahhhbulance white boy villain. Thankfully I am not the only person who feels this way considering all the amazing memes that have popped up out there. Recently I made it my mission to find a fanfiction that encapsulates this aspect of Kylo Ren and eventually I found one that is delightful AF.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: Thor and Xena mashup!

Welcome to another Awesome Fanfic Monday!

I, like many, grew up watching the excellence that was Xena: Warrior Princess. I enjoyed the evolution and transformation of that show and frankly it was freaking entertaining and fun as hell. I love how it incorporated different mythologies and segments of history (even if it did tweak a few facts/details here and there) and something I would love to see is a crossover between Xena and Thor. Now the show did explore some Nordic mythology, but I just love the idea of Marvel’s Thor battling alongside the Warrior Princess. Thanks to some kind folks on fanfiction.net, my dream of imagining these two worlds together has come true.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: Adorable Ghostly Snape

Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!

Like many my heart broke when I heard the news of Alan Rickman’s passing. I thought of all the wonderful characters he played and how they had affected me growing up. Naturally one of the main ones that came to mind was Professor Snape. What a wonderful and complex character he was and what a perfect actor to portray him. I thought for this week’s Awesome Fanfic Monday I would dedicate it to everyone’s favorite misunderstood professor from Hogwarts.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: Buffy and Bella

Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!

I love myself a good parody. I also love myself a good crossover. You can imagine how delighted I was when I found a fanfic that falls into both of the these categories. This week’s fanfic combines both my favorite and least favorite pieces of the vampire genre into one. That’s right, some blessed soul combined Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight into a fun little one shot that will make any Buffy fan smile with delight.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: Legolas by Laura

Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!

Despite the amazing Star Wars fever going on right now this time of year always reminds me of Lord of the Rings. The movies were always released mid December, so I cannot help but associate wintertime with the lovely magic that is Tolkien.

One of the more infamous pieces of fanfiction out there is a personal favorite of mine and it is “Legolas by Laura”. It’s up there with the Harry Potter fanfic “My Immortal” and I think deserves recognition as being one of the first fanfics to go viral. Let’s face it, us older people, if we had been a pre-teen and had access to a computer, we probably would have written something very similar to this. Like all great myths and old world ballads, the true author of this is unknown. I just hope she or he is proud of its legacy.

Awesome Fanfic Monday: John Watson’s Grief

Welcome to Awesome Fanfic Monday!

I, like many, love Sherlock. It is a well written, very well acted show with a great rendition of an iconic character. When Sherlock (spoiler alert if you’re way behind) supposedly committed suicide that was the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. It was heartbreaking to see John’s grief to the loss of his best friend. For this week’s fanfic I chose a story that catalogues John’s grief and adjustment to the loss of his unique friend.
