Being Badass: The Trans Lady Way Being Badass: The Trans Lady Way

Trans people in our media are today just now gaining ground in all mediums as we become more visible in society and are (somewhat) less demonized.

The Adventures of Supergirl, a tie in comic to the CBS series, debuted today wherever digital comics are sold. This is the first issue of a 13 issue digital first series which will later be collected into a graphic novel. The first 21 page issue though is a strong start to recommend the series.

Fallout 4 Spoilertastic Discussion Thread. Fallout 4 Spoilertastic Discussion Thread.

The most anticipated game ever, some say, Fallout 4 has been out a few weeks now and now that most of us have had a few weeks to play through it and maybe remember to try and beat it we can have a discussion on the game. Where we can talk about Spoilers freely and without a 140 character limit! So here are my thoughts…

Masters of the Steven Universe Masters of the Steven Universe

Some crossovers just make sense! And others you would never think of but are amazing and work anyways. I didn’t know realize I wanted this mashup until Polaris gave us this. I mean, look at Connie’s adorable little outfit! I think the mashup gets the characters matched pretty well though I don’t know if Jasper is…

A Tale of Two Trans Women: Marvel & DC A Tale of Two Trans Women: Marvel & DC

Trans characters in comics are still far and few between despite the growing visibility and awareness of transgender people in the world.

DC Gives Us Super Hero Girls TV Show DC Gives Us Super Hero Girls TV Show

Does DC have robot spies in my brain? The answer is yes because they are giving us a cartoon about super hero girls. In a Bizarro universe where apparently every hero is in high school (look don’t think too hard about it), we follow some of our favorite heroes (and anti-Hero and villain who sometimes heroes) as they…

Wonder Woman Looks To Hire More Women Wonder Woman Looks To Hire More Women

Women are a minority in Hollywood. Not only in front of the camera in starring roles, but behind it as well. From the lowliest crew member to the Hollywood Executive, a large majority of those working on a film are men. And that reflects in how women are portrayed in our media, even in films that say have a female…

HISHE: Bat Blood Parody HISHE: Bat Blood Parody
