Geeks of Christ Presents…June 15, 2012

Here’s a list of what I’ve been reading, listening to, watching, whatever from around the web. 

Fear From Alien to Prometheus

by James Harleman

Seriously, the layers of fears represented in the 1979 film are far more than xenophobia and the unknown. What is most eerie about the film is that the threats are all too familiar.”

Forewarned is Forearmed

by Paul Kupperberg

Paul’s was one of the first names I remembered as a kid reading comics. He’s written tons and tons of comic books. His Superboy series remains a favorite.

Here he confronts the brutality presented in many mainstream comics.

Comic books, which once sold in the hundreds of thousands per issue, now sell in the tens of thousands (if they’re lucky), and ten year olds don’t read them anymore.
A story like “When Lois First Suspected Clark Was Superman” couldn’t be published today, at least not with a straight face.
Some would say that comics have grown up and matured.”

Trial of a Time Lord: Mindwarp

by Aiden Brack

I love the Trial season.

I hate Mindwarp. Only because of the crap way they dispose of Peri though. Peri was annoying a lot of the time. This was solved by adding an even more annoying companion in the next story and making Peri bald.

Anyway, this is a fine review of one of my favorite periods of Doctor Who history.

Meanwhile, I’m wishing I was home so I could finish my stinking Prometheus write-up!
