‘Defenders #1’ Is Big, Crazy, and Bravura Work [Marvel Advance Review] – I was far too proud of how cleverly I constructed this review… There’s one cutesy bit I called out, one that’s (slightly) more subtle. If you’ve read the first issue, you’ll know what it is.
New Who Christmas Special Pics, Movies, and Bedtime Stories: What’s New With Doctor Who? – Beyond having fun writing these, it makes me super happy that not only is there enough Doctor Who news on a weekly basis for a round-up, but that I work for a place that allows me to write a weekly Doctor Who news round-up.
