    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. Captain Marvel‘s Kelly Sue DeConnick Talks About That Spider-Woman Cover

    SparkNotes, askin' the hard questions.

    You all know what we here at The Mary Sue think of Milo Manara's variant cover for November's Spider-Woman #1. But this weekend at Dragon Con, the folks at SparkNotes asked Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue DeConnick what she thinks of the whole debacle—and her answer is as cool as Kelly Sue herself.

  2. The Lesbian Sorta-Kiss In The Doctor Who Premiere Wasn’t Shown In Asia

    It wasn't even a real kiss anyways, guys, come on.

    You guys all watched the Doctor Who series 8 premiere, "Deep Breath," right? If you did, you probably noticed an almost-awesome lip-touching moment between kick-ass Silurian lady-Holmes Madame Vastra and her adorable wife, Jenny Flint. As it turns out, not everyone is okay with seeing two married people kiss, because the girls' moment was cut from the broadcast for Asian audiences.

  3. This Is Probably The Weirdest Trailer For A 50s-Era Sci-Fi Musical You’ll See All Day

    And if it's not the only one, you're having a strange day.

    Canadian director Jeffrey St. Jules is debuting his first-ever feature length film at TIFF this week, and Bang Bang Baby looks... interesting? It's a "surreal, fever-dream fusion of small-town musical and 1950s sci-fi" and it basically looks like if Pleasantville met "Once More With Feeling" met anything on MST3K. Oh, and Shameless's Jimmy/Steve stars. I think I'm in.

  4. Stan Lee’s Original GOTG Cameo Was A Bit Too Naughty For Marvel

    Not like that, get your mind out of the Stan Lee gutter. Sheesh.

    Stan Lee's cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty great—he gets to pretend like he's mackin' on a younger lady, and Rocket gets to make some solid jokes at his expense. But at Dragon Con, director James Gunn revealed that he originally had a bit more vulgar cameo in mind—one that didn't fly with the head honchos at Marvel.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
