Hello readers and fellow nerds! I just wanted to write a quick update since there will not be a review this week. I’ve been on vacation for two weeks (with a week break in between), and while I feel silly complaining about vacations, it is still tiring being away from home and my routine. I need to catch up on some schoolwork, as well as organize my mess of a room – I have games, books, and comics everywhere. I went through the movies today, and managed to part with a lot of them – even some of my Johnny Depp films that I once treasured. I don’t even know where to start with the piles and piles of comics and magazines (and, y’know, books) in my bookshelves. I have a feeling I’ll be ruthless and donate a majority of them, because it’s important to be realistic when you’re cleaning up your space; if you think you’re never going to look at something again, just put it in the give-away pile. I refuse to be on an episode of Hoarders!
Anyway, there are a lot of reviews coming up that I’m looking forward to sharing with you. The next one will be Edward Scissorhands, one of my favorite movies, and it really centers on the theme of disability. It’s probably going to be long, so I may make it into a two-parter. After that, I’ll tackle Strain, a board game where you have to defeat your opponents with SCIENCE, and Batman Chronicles #5, where we learn the origin of Oracle. I’m also working on the X-Files episode “All Souls,” and it will probably make you as angry as it made me. Then there’s the Mark Millar comic, Superior, which I just discovered last week; it features a kid with Multiple Sclerosis who turns into real-life version of a fictional superhero. I also have some other reviews in mind, such as: the Birds of Prey series, Lars and the Real Girl, TNG episode “Ethics,” Shadows Over Camelot board game, Doctor Who novels, and more. As always, if you have any suggestions/recommendations, let me know.
See you in a week!
