Star Trek and the Importance of Representation

George Takei Nichelle Nichols Star Trek They Called Us Enemy

Star Trek and the Importance of Representation

Written by Angela Rairden Although I’ve long been more of a Star Wars fan than a Star Trek fan, there is something undeniably extraordinary about a television show that broke barriers by casting minorities in important roles long before such a thing was the norm. Or, to some, before such a thing was even deemed “acceptable”. And yet, the first, iconic Star Trek series gave us Nichelle Nichols, a Black woman, as Lieutenant Uhura and George Takei, a Japanese man, as Lieutenant Sulu all the way back in 1966. These weren’t secondary characters or the stereotypical portrayals of race that...

Frankie’s Comics Interviews WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus!

Written by Angela Rairden Trish Stratus is widely regarded as one of the greatest female professional wrestlers in the history of sports entertainment. A seven-time WWE Women’s Champion and one-time Hardcore Champion, Stratus was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.

My Spoiler-Free Review of "Thor: Love and Thunder"

Written by: Angela Rairden In a sense, Marvel’s latest installment in the MCU, Thor: Love and Thunder is a call back to the very first Thor film. In that movie, released all the way back in 2011, audiences were first introduced to Chris Hemsworth’s god of thunder – young, brash, and not entirely aware of what life had in store for him. That Thor was one who needed to do a lot of growing up in order to reach his full potential.   Now, in 2022’s Love and Thunder, we are reacquainted with a Thor has been through a lot...

Poison Ivy Proves that She’s Truly a Force to be Reckoned with in “Poison Ivy #1”

Written by Angela Rairden Poison Ivy finally has her own title again and I couldn’t be happier about it! Written by G. Willow Wilson (the same writer who created Marvel’s Kamala Khan!), this is a deadlier version of Pamela Isley than we’ve seen in a long time. After obtaining god-like powers, only to have those powers stripped from her, Ivy’s feeling less like herself than ever before. Add to that the fact that she’s still processing her complicated break-up from Harley Quinn, and we have a version of Ivy that just wants to watch the world burn. Except, it isn’t...

“Grim” Offers a Unique Twist on a Familiar Theme

Written by Angela Rairden Boom Studios’ Grim is exactly my type of comic. It’s horror with a splash of humor, a dash of sexiness, and an unexpected plot twist right in the first issue. Written and created by Stephanie Phillips, who’s currently doing a bang-up job writing Harley Quinn over at DC, with truly gorgeous art by co-creator Flaviano (Power Man and Iron Fist, I Am Groot) Grim is the tale of grim reaper Jessica Harrow. Tasked with ushering the newly dead across the River Styx (if that’s what you want to call it), Jessica’s boredom and disillusionment about her...
