Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Miniseries Is Off to a Promising Start

Written by Angela Rairden Disney+’s new Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries begins with a four-minute recap segment that quickly portrays some of the pertinent events in the three Star Wars prequel movies that were released in the early 2000’s. For someone like me, who maybe hasn’t watched those movies all too recently, it was a welcome sequence that reminded audiences of how close Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker once were, a tie that seems likely to drive this entire series. Because Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor, as it should be) vowed to hide out on Tatooine and watch over Luke from a distance, I anticipated...

“Made in Korea” is a Different Type of A.I. Story

Written by Angela Rairden When I read that Pornsak Pichetshote, writer of the phenomenal comic “The Good Asian”, was recommending a trade paperback titled “Made in Korea”, written by Jeremy Holt with art by George Schall, I knew that I had to pick it up. “The Good Asian” is such a wildly good title that I knew that any book praised by its writer had to be equally as good, and I was not disappointed. Set in the near future, “Made in Korea” begins in the software engineering division of a manufacturing company in Seoul. There, an engineer named Chul...

Breaking Down Disney+’s “Moon Knight”

Written by Angela Rairden I have to be completely honest at the start of this blog and admit that I have never read a Moon Knight comic, which is a large part of why it’s taken me until four episodes in to write about it here. For the uninitiated, the plot of Disney+’s Moon Knight series is perhaps best described as being a bit chaotic. Our main character (portrayed rather brilliantly by Oscar Isaac) suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID), a fact which casts him as an unreliable narrator. In episode one, we are introduced to Steven Grant, a somewhat...

"Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse" Makes a Pretty, If Confusing, Debut

Written by Angela Rairden Spider-Gwen is one of my favorite Spider-people, mostly because I’ve always loved Gwen Stacy. Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I’m a big fan of all of Peter Parker’s love interests – I guess he has good taste or something. However, there’s something about the role reversal of the uber smart Gwen becoming Spider-Gwen instead of Peter that really appeals to me. Not to mention, her spider suit is really slick-looking. Therefore, when I picked up Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1, I didn’t expect to find it as disappointing as I did. The official Marvel description for this...

Frankie’s Biggest Giveaway Ever!!!

Written By: Angela Rairden Published in August of 2011, Marvel’s Ultimate Fallout #4 would introduce readers to Miles Morales, toted as the “new” Spider-Man, a 13-year-old biracial kid with a Black father and a Puerto Rican mother. Created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, Miles initially debuted to mixed reviews. However, after the unequivocal success of 2018’s animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which featured Miles as its main character, Marvel’s “new” Spider-Man’s popularity shot to astronomical heights, a fact which was further solidified when the character got his own videogame in November of 2020. It became...
