A to Z: Wanda from Sandman

Sandman. Neil Gaiman’s long comic series, one of the best ever written. Intense, literary, fantasy-horror from the early 90s… When I was born. Notable for so many reasons and so many characters. Today, though, we’re just talking about Wanda, a trans character from volume five, A Game of You. Opinions about Wanda are sharply divided and strongly…… Continue reading A to Z: Wanda from Sandman

A to Z: Rawra Chin

Rawra Chin hails from Hypothetical Lizard, a graphic novel from Avatar Press in 2007.

A to Z: John Constantine

I love Constantine, okay? It doesn’t matter that I first loved him as Keanu Reeves in 2005, and only started the comics because he appeared in Swamp Thing. I love him because if you’ve ever so much as thought about urban fantasy, he’s the character you just know exists somewhere. If you have magic in cities, you will…… Continue reading A to Z: John Constantine

Lots and lots of arcs, but I’m told it’s heading toward a completion — a beginning, middle, and end, all planned from the…… Continue reading A to Z: Elfquest

Tinker Bell Answers: Pixie Hollow Sociology

“does tinkerbell have something to do with green representation” I have no idea what green representation is, and Google has failed me. So… maybe? Maybe this refers to environmental themes or environmentalists? If so, you could probably find that in the movies. The whole design is very nature-y, the fairies all work with nature, etc.…… Continue reading Tinker Bell Answers: Pixie Hollow Sociology
