It’s just a Jump to the Left

It’s Just a Jump to the Left Time Travel, it’s the dream right? Now where do I go from here? See, this is a loaded subject with tons of different thoughts and conjectures (and I don’t know that I plan to answer anything). The simple thing, of course, is it …

Kobu and the Two Strings

Kubo and the Two Strings #reflection

Kubo and the Two Strings Kubo and the Two Strings (Laika and Focus Features 2016. directed by Travis Knight) has been a journey for me. Well, not really, but you open stuff the way you open it, right? Maybe I should just go back to the beginning. I had heard …

spring heeled jack

Spring Heeled Jack #reflection

Spring Heeled Jack I can’t remember if I spoke about this while I was doing it, but a while back I spent a school year in some classes. Yeah, I added four more English/literature classes to the odd number I have taken over the years. Oddly, it was probably the …

Western Ways and Gunslingers

Dr. Strange #marveluniverse

Dr. Strange Or what have you done with your life? We went to Dr. Strange recently. That feels a bit odd to say right now. Sure, we know it’s a movie and all that but still it is a strange thing to say. We went to a person like they …

close enough

Close Enough #graphicnovels

Close Enough Ever run across something and feel like you have been there before? I don’t mean déjà vu. That would be too weird. Besides, that’s just a glitch in the matrix, and has nothing to do with this… So, I picked up a Manga. This by itself is a …

Freaks of the heartland

Freaks of the Heartland

Freaks of the Heartland I just want to take a moment right now to point out that I didn’t change the title. Seriously, the title for this graphic novel is so good there isn’t anything I can say to change it out into something witty. Freaks of the Heartland (Darkhorse …
