When The Dust Settles

When The Dust Settles 

While attending this year’s Nine Worlds convention I went to a session titled “How To Win The 21st Century,” which talked about games as a dominant cultural medium. This and many other talks at the convention highlighted the growing power and popularity of entertainment forms that had previously been regulated to “things geeks did.” Now […]

Maoyu Mao Yusha – Anime Review

Maoyu Mao Yusha – Anime Review 

For fifteen years, the demons and humans have been at war, and both sides have profited from it, but at the expense of those less fortunate. Maoyu Mao Yusha begins with the Hero venturing into demon territory to challenge the Demon King. The encounter, though, goes nothing like Hero expects – beginning with the revelation […]

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell – Episodes 1 – 3

Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell – Episodes 1 – 3 

It feels like fantasy for adults has almost become respectable of late. Game of Thrones keeps raking the viewers in, while the adulation for the BBC’s lush adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s novel has been almost universal. There have been, predictably, a few whispers from those who still have hang ups about liking – whisper it […]

Daredevil – TV Series Review

Daredevil – TV Series Review 

As far as comic book superheroes go, Daredevil is pretty damn cool, no matter what the ill-fitting Ben Affleck movie may have had to say on the matter. Whereas Captain America, Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers are about to take on Ultron with the fate of the world at stake in the […]

80s Fantasy Cartoons!

80s Fantasy Cartoons! 

If you are like me, a child of the 1980s, then you probably watched a lot of cartoons. Saturday mornings were your hook up, holla if you hear me! Oh, those glorious mornings were chock-full with three networks running cartoons from 8am to past noon. I remember the Saturday mornings of my childhood well since […]

Tie-In Fiction: Fantasy’s Gateway Drug

Tie-In Fiction: Fantasy’s Gateway Drug 

Tie-in fiction—specifically the Dragonlance universe—was my first introduction to wonderful world of epic, serial fantasy. Before Eddings, before Jordan and Feist, there were Weis and Hickman. The Dragonlance Chronicles are a touchstone for me and countless others. Just take a look at the forum here on Fantasy-Faction, or at the r/fantasy or r/Dragonlance subreddits. The […]

The Legacy of Nimoy & Spock

The Legacy of Nimoy & Spock 

Leonard Nimoy died today. I’m sure I was not alone in my reaction – the imagined punch to the gut but oh-so-real realization that Spock is dead, and this time without the hope of the Genesis planet. The original Star Trek series aired nearly twenty years before I was born, and like many of you, […]

Plotting The A-Team Way

Plotting The A-Team Way 

< Dum Dum Du Du De Dum (you’ll just have imagine the tune) > In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they […]

Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ heading to Television!

Asimov’s ‘Foundation’ heading to Television! 

A couple of years ago it seemed that Fantasy and Science-Fiction had died its death on television. You’d get the odd show trying to kick-start the genre, but generally, no matter how good, we knew it was only a matter of time before it was cancelled (Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, StarTrek Enterprise, etc, etc, etc). It […]

Black Butler: Book of Circus

Black Butler: Book of Circus 

The Black Butler anime adaptations are based off the original manga by Yana Toboso. The first season was likely going to be the only season, based on the storyline. Then it got very popular. And the second season was…a sad attempt to leach off the fandom. And now we have a ‘third’ season: Book of […]

The 100 – TV Series Review

The 100 – TV Series Review 

I feel that I should start this review by stating that I have never been a super huge fan of sci-fi, in either print or visual media forms. It wasn’t until I watched the entirety of Firefly a few years ago that it finally clicked for me. Sci-fi didn’t have to be super weird; it […]

What’s Your Favorite Fantasy Sword?

What’s Your Favorite Fantasy Sword? 

Everyone loves Excalibur; I mean it’s the sword of swords! One land, one King! And all that jazz. I could sit here and talk about all the times I drew what I thought Excalibur looked like on my folders in middle school, but who really knows what that mythological sword was shaped like. What is […]
