Who can possibly defend Earth against Evil Overlordess Rutina? Only one team has got what it takes to answer the call of the Great Cosmic Algorithm and protect our planet, and they are known as the Mystic Cosmic Patrol!

Forget the Battle of the Bastards, the Battle of the Loot Train is my new favorite thing.  In fact, let’s take this episode in reverse order, because the last twenty minutes was the second best fight scene in the series. (And damn, the best fight scene in the series was in the middle twenty minutes, but more on that!)  This episode was not only in the top five of episodes EVER, topping the three that preceded it in the season, but contained so many beautiful moments.  Let’s look at this episode, end to beginning.

To commemorate the cinematic premiere of The Dark Tower in theaters today, Fanbase Press is excited to celebrate its fandom through an editorial series that focuses on aspects of Stephen King’s series of books, collectively known as The Dark Tower series.

“…All is forgotten in the stone halls of the dead.  Behold the stairways which stand in darkness; behold the rooms of ruin.  These are the halls of the dead, where the spiders spin and the great circuits fall quiet, one by one”.     —Eddie Dean, The Wastelands, The Dark Tower III

“I’ve done my part - I brought fire and ice together.”

Dear Fanbase Press Readers:

The Fanbase staff has fully recovered from the geek pilgrimage that is San Diego Comic-Con, and, as usual, we brought a ton of exciting swag home to share with fans who were unable to make it to the con-of-all-cons this year!

The title of the episode is one of Daenerys’ designations. She is “stormborn,” so named as the night of her birth a terrible storm ravaged Dragonstone, the ancient home of the Targaryens, her current headquarters, and the biggest motherlode of dragonglass in Westeros. 

WINNER ANNOUNCED BELOW

Dear Fanbase Press Readers:

At San Diego Comic-Con 2017, the Fanbase Press staff had a chance to chat with the cast and creative team of the DC SuperHero Girls' latest film, Brain Drain.  (Stay tuned to the Fanbase Press website for the interview coverage!)  In honor of the film's upcoming release, Fanbase Press - in association with our Geeky Parent Guide series - would like to share an exciting and exceptional giveaway for a DC SuperHero Girls prize pack to fans everywhere!

A tangential note before we begin: This episode premiered the day George Romero passed away.  Romero was a remarkable filmmaker and a kind human being who made movies in Pittsburgh, PA, away from Hollywood.  In this episode of GoT, I could not help but think of his influence on our culture when we saw the Night King leading an army of the frozen dead towards the wall – if there had been no Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, then popular culture would be very different.  Raise a glass to the man who gave us the modern zombie and so many other fascinating and enjoyable films.

In 1981, San Diego Comic-Con held its fourteenth convention, bringing in 5,000 attendees. Over 35 years later, the event is about to celebrate its 50th show with attendance being over 170,000 fans celebrating all aspects of pop culture. If using SDCC is a barometer of fandom, it has certainly grown and evolved since 1981.
