We’ve all played difficult games. That’s the fun, really, figuring out the best way to get to the end of the game (or get a high score). But sometimes that difficulty is just too much, which is a lesson I’m glad I learned early on.
Last month, my editor, Brian, reviewed Iron Man 3, the latest movie to come from the Marvel movie studios, and while I respectfully disagree with his opinion of the movie. I found it to be my favourite of the trilogy, concluding a story arc that had been in the works for three movies while creating a […]
In the comics world, the word “Retcon” short for “Retroactive continuity” is used whenever something that was previously established, such as a character’s origins, is changed to something new.
