A small town that is never open past sundown, a mysterious car crash resulting in the deaths of three locals, more disappearances spilling over into the next town, and a reporter trying to get to the bottom of everything. What could possibly go wrong?
This is not your typical coming-of-age story; it is so much more. It's a 1990s period piece with summer fun, supernatural elements, and some LGBTQ romance. Elodie, a teen in 1994, doesn’t want to be a camp counselor in the summer before college; she wants to hang with her best friend. But in order to pay for her first year of college (Remember when you could do that with a summer job?), she had to leave normal society and spend her summer with a bunch of kids in the woods. Elodie has no idea what she is in for. Camp is going to be a lot different than she thought, and certainly not boring.

End of the road. Last episode of the season. Yes, there will be a season four, but it is as likely to be radically different from season three as season three was from season two, not the least of which because Dolores is now gone. Sorry – should have started by telling you, “Spoiler alert.” But if you’re here reading this, I have to believe you have seen the episode.

The world is a big, scary place right now. Things are changing that are very much beyond our control, and the world that we lived and laughed in just months ago seems like an alien memory, fading with time. What's amazing is how much people are pulling together at all levels, whether it's a bakery keeping its doors open by selling flour and yeast to home bakers, or a community taking care of its elder members by buying them groceries. There is a level of unity that is foundational to the way we live our lives and our willingness to put ourselves out there for others.
“Over fifteen years, Supernatural has shown it is far more than your average genre show about handsome dudes who fight monsters.”
The creators of Deiciders have returned with another chapter in a mythical quest featuring warriors hunting down fantastic creatures. Deiciders #2 has Ulfrith and Olaf continuing on from the end of their journey in Issue 1, where they battled a pair of gigantic wolves. This time, they’re on the hunt for a fire-breathing dragon, but their previous battle has left them injured and in need of help. Should they trust Freya, a stranger who seemingly helps them upon their first meeting?
Well, that escalated quickly. Even after the excitement of Alien Day, (and if’d ya didn’t read those pieces, go check them out – especially Bryant’s piece on corporate dystopia in the Alien films, cuz let’s be honest, Delos and Incite are taking pages straight out of the Weyland-Yutani group of companies. In the future, all corporations will have secret androids out to end humanity!), “Passed Pawn” is a big, ol’ slugfest that reveals as much as it conceals for the finale (and we finally got to see Dolores and Maeve go at it! Yay!).
