A Parliament of Owls (Or How Comic Books Make You Smarter)

Not very long ago I was out with some friends having dinner at a cozy little café in the mountains. It was a beautiful Colorado evening and we sat out on the deck as the sun was setting among the aspens and pines as humming birds and finches and jays nestled in the branches and

Ant-icipation: Or How I learned To Shut-up And Trust Marvel

When Marvel announced it was going to do an Ant-Man movie my reaction was...meh.

Then director Edgar Wright publicly left the project making
