Can Women Be Superheroes?

Can Women Be Superheroes? By Mary P. Since 1944, there have been 76 Marvel and DC related movies. By 2020, there will be 17 more.

So when I started Astroneer, I was hesitant to get too excited. But let me say this: Astroneer is the No Man’s Sky we all wanted. It filled the black hole in my heart (pun intended) that No Man’s Sky left behind. Althou...

Thinking Outside the D&D Box

Thinking Outside the D&D Box The ground shook as it split in two. The growing chasm pried apart in a wicked grin splitting the group apart…making way for the Abomination resting beneath.

Taldan’s eyes narrowed as he gripped his staff, his whitening knuckles betraying h...

Can The DC Cinematic Universe Benefit From Marvel’s Success?

Can The DC Cinematic Universe Benefit From Marvel’s Success?

As a female gamer, there is some discrimination and more importantly stereotypes I have had to deal with. No, I am not a femi-nazi, nor do I th...

Why Do You Still Read Comics?

Why Do You Still Read Comics? Like any other kid, my brother hated reading and just like any good sister, I loved it because I wanted to show our dad I was the “good kid.” In an ingenious move, our uncle gave my brother some comic books which easily became the lesser of two evils for him.
