Does it ever seem like the stock market is all the just a game, one with rigged rules?  If so you’d feel right at home in C: Control. Hidden behind the veneer of the visible world is a second world, the Financial District.  What’s the Financial District?  Think of it as a cross between a […]

Victor Frankensteinn (that’s Frahnkunshteen! … No, no it isn’t) is a lonely young boy. He lives in a colorless world, in a faceless suburb called New Holland filled with bland adults and weird children. His parents are mostly oblivious, and his next door neighbor, Mr. Bergermeister, the town’s mayor, just plain doesn’t like Victor or […]

thumb-tmnteric

So they’re trying yet another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show.  Everything old is new, and old, and new again.  I guess we’ve hit that point in pop culture where recycling is itself recycled. Well, at least we have a good show for the effort, one that easily stands aside its predecessors without being a pure […]

splash-arealmonsters3

The streets under our cities are full of things.  Weird things.  Strange things.  And monsters.  Lots and lots and lots of monsters.  What do these monsters do?  Scare people of course.  And eat garbage.  And go to school.  Yes, monsters go to school to learn how to be better monsters.  Much like our main characters […]
