Odin’s Eye on Comics [2014-07-26]

Odin’s Eye on Comics [2014-07-26]

Things happen in comics that are not necessarily the comics themselves. Movies, previews, television shows, all that sort of thing. We thought it was time we weighed in on some Very Important Issues surrounding the comics industries, and gave our one cent on it.

One cent… get it? Woden only has one eye and this is a God of Comics thing? (the joke you have to explain isn’t funny. – ed.)

The 3 Count [07.26.2014] Race and Wrestling

The WWE (and Vince McMahon in particular) has been under the microscope in the media recently facing allegations that the company has a race problem. The main thrust of this attack is that in terms of on-camera pushes, black performers are continually overlooked. Well, let’s take a look at the numbers!

First, taking a look at the WWE title since its inception in 1963 we see one hell of a lot of…

SDCC and Their Anti-Harassment Policy (or Lack Thereof)

SDCC and Their Anti-Harassment Policy (or Lack Thereof)

The time has come for nerds and geeks to descend en masse on San Diego – that’s right folks, it’s Comic-Con time! But despite all the revelry and awesometastic nerd goings on, there is one dark spot on an organization that runs an otherwise stellar event… the lack of a clear anti-harassment policy.

To be clear, SDCC isn’t *completely* silent on the issue. Their policy reads as follows:

Welcome to Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale

The walls have ears. The walls have eyes. The posters have eyes. The cosplayers’ foreheads have eyes. We do not know what they want, but sometimes we can hear them speaking in whispers we cannot quite understand. Welcome to Night Vale.

Welcome to Night Vale is what might happen if Stephen King, David Lynch and HP Lovecraft made a city in The Sims, then left it running for seventy years. Written…

The 3 Count [07.12.2014] A Hero’s Return

Kurt Angle has one of the more storied careers in wrestling, going from Olympic gold to the (semi) main event of the WWE to being the focal point of TNA for many years. Now it looks like the Olympic hero is gearing up for one last transition.

In a recent tweet, Angle said that he only has one more wrestling contract left in him and he is weighing his options. To me, this sounds like a bit of an…

Bard on the Beach: The Tempest

Bard on the Beach: The Tempest

If you’re curious about Bard on the Beach but have always found reasons not to go, my advice to you is this: abandon those reasons. This is the best year to start. And a big part of that is their production of The Tempest, directed by Meg Roe.

For anyone unfamiliar with Shakespeare’s final play, here’s a quick summary: Prospero is an old magician who lives on an island with his teenaged daughter…
