    Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.

  1. Marvel’s EIC Apologizes For Any “Mixed Messaging” That Spider-Woman Butt Cover Might Have Caused

    We can't imagine what those mixed messages might have been.

    So, you might have heard that Marvel is releasing Spider-Women #1 in November. You may also have heard that the first issue will have a variant cover by Milo Manara which is, to say the absolute very least about it, precariously bootylicious. We (and many other people) were pretty upset about it - and Marvel is finally speaking out.

  2. Lynda Carter And The Ladies Behind The Latest Wonder Woman Comic Talk Gal Gadot

    All of the opinions!

    Everyone on the internet has an opinion about Gal Gadot and her Wonder Woman look in Batman v Superman: The Epicest Court Case. And hey, that's great; but what about the people who are really invested in Diana? People like Queen Lynda Carter, and the ladies who are making the latest WW comic? Well, they have some feels about Gadot's look, too.

  3. The Most Uncommon Cosplay At Fan Expo Canada

    Four for you, unqiue cosplayer; you go, unique cosplayer.

    Everyone knows us Canadians tend to be a little wacky, what with our metric system, and Tim Hortons, and health care. But wacky isn't always a bad thing - especially not when it comes to cosplay! Fan Expo is always great for crazy costumes, but this year there was an influx of unusual outfits; for every Daenerys, there was a Robb Stark and a Melisandre walking the floor. Sam (that's me!) was there to check out all the cosplay action this weekend, and here are my fave uncommon cosplay finds.

  7. Here’s What The Thing Is Going To Look Like In The New Fantastic Four Film

    Is this an exciting thing? Is this movie really happening?

    Director Josh Trank tweeted this image of what The Thing is going to look like in 2015's Fantastic Four reboot. When he's not all Hulk'd out, Ben Grimm is played by Jamie Bell (you know, Billy Elliot). At least it's less orange than the Michael Chiklis version!

  8. Moffat, Capaldi, and Coleman Prep You For Tonight’s Doctor Who Premiere

    Take a "Deep Breath!" ...I'm not sorry.

    On a scale of one to Gallifrey, exactly how stoked are you for tonight's season premiere of Doctor Who? I think I'm somewhere around a Rani and a half - optimistic about Capaldi and in love with the Victorian setting; a little hesitant when it comes to the quality of the writing and Clara's characterization. But this new clip featuring the Who crew talking about "Deep Breath" does have me pretty hopeful - it looks like the premiere is going to be a heck of a ride.

    Can we just make this a feature in all nail polish?

    We love a good mani or some cute nail art; but, wouldn't your polish game be way better if it also fought sexual assault? Four undergrad dudes at North Carolina State University have developed a prototype for a new nail polish line called Undercover Colors - a polish that changes color when it comes in contact with date rape drugs. Pretty revolutionary.

    YOUR WEDDING MUST BE MORE SEVERE

    Sure, I mean, your wedding had a pretty good cocktail hour but did it have Tom Hardy show up as Bane? A couple getting married in Pittsburgh back in 2011 discovered that their wedding chapel was right next to the live production set of The Dark Knight Rises. Luckily for the wedding party, the production team was so remorseful about all the explosions during the couple's special day that they gave the bride and groom a Bat-wedding to remember.
