My own take: Why barely veiled racialized, right-wing claptrap like 300 can't compare to visionary works like V for Vendetta or Watchmen.With the Occupy movement, it seems you and Frank Miller have…Continue

From the administrators to the servants, everyone was nervous and on edge. It was really quite difficult to get anyone to remain on the premises for the…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
