I can’t vouch for the comments.
Which by the by Freema, you and I are going to be together forever and ever and ever and ever.
I don’t give a fuck what that restraining order says.
While each companion represents the audience as we travel with the Doktah, I’ve noticed they’ve also personified different aspects of humanity.
So recently history was made when Riverdale got its first openly gay resident. Last month Kevin Keller appeared in Veronica #202. I grabbed the issue and I must say, it was actually well done….for an Archie story. Keller is an awesome and likable character. He’s an aspiring journalist, a comic book junkie and he did the impossible in beating Jughead in an eating contest. He debunks negative gay stereotypes, comes from a well-adjusted loving two parent home.
I definitely look forward to seeing more of Keller,because I KNOW I will be seeing lots more of him in the very near future.
*Gives the Archie folks the evil eye*
The issue was funny and respectful. And what’s more, the issue has already sold out and is in its second printing with numbers that would make both Marvel and DC salivate.
It’s no secret: White dudes (especially dead White dudes) dominate theatre. Wanna do something about it? Mark your calendar for November 12 to see a staged reading of Tulpa, or Anne&Me and/or send a donation to Crossroads Theatre Project!
And don’t forget about the open discussion going on here at Ars Marginal, where you can ask me questions and shit.
If you are a Stephanie Brown fan, you may want to seriously consider skipping this post.
There’s something I’ve been meaning to get off my chest. I hate Stephanie Brown. I fucking hate her guts for reasons I’m about to expound upon.
But before I go any further, disclaimer time: I recognize that many of my readers are fervent Stephanie Brown fans who adore her for perfectly valid and legitimate reasons. Obviously your mileage varies and we can agree to disagree. I perfectly respect your opinion, all I ask is you pay me the same courtesy. And to be clear, I’m not interested in diatribes about why I’m wrong about my opinion or why I should be exalting her ass.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.

As anyone who’s known me longer than two months can attest, I’m a huge movie buff. Up until very recently, going to the movies was my weekly thing. Every Friday and/or Saturday, I’d hit up the local cinema, pay full price, and see a movie I may or may not like. So when I say that I’m not going to see something – that I flat-out refuse to spend money on it – that’s saying something.
