    Susana Polo — Editor at Large

    Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.

  1. Pull It Together: Black Widow, the Birds of Prey, Lumberjanes, and Wonder Woman!

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!

  2. Robot Learns to Cook by Watching YouTube Videos, Just Like Us

    By watching YouTube videos about cooking, I mean.

    Unlike human cooks, when robots break a glass they never accidentally cut themselves and have to go get stitches, because they're made of indestructible titanium frames that they would never use for evil.

  4. George Lucas: I Made Strange Magic “Because You’re Not Supposed to Make [Adventure] Movies for Girls”

    Only the Sith deal in absolutes. Anybody can like adventure movies.

    There's no doubt that even though George Lucas intended Star Wars for young boys, the films appealed hugely to the rest of the human race as well. But this morning, in an appearance on CBS This Morning, the filmmaker discussed some of his motivations behind writing the story of Strange Magic, an animated musical starring fantasy creatures (directed by Gary Rydstrom, with writing credits from Lucas, Rydstrom, David Berenbaum, and Irene Mecchi) that hits theaters this Friday.

  5. Smithsonian Loses All Credibility by Suggesting a Dragon Could Not Take Down an Apache Helicopter

    What do we do when we are awake?

    The Smithsonian Channel has released this video, whose narration begins "Dragons, according to lore, grow up to 85 feet long with a wingspan of 170 feet, fly up to 80 miles per hour, and spit fire at 6330 degrees Fahrenheit." But the lore they're drawing on can't possibly be award winning documentary Reign of Fire, because then they would know that it takes at least five men, a gold axe, an explosive crossbow, and Matthew McConaughey to bring down a dragon.

  6. Australian Cosplayer’s Stormtrooper Armor Stops Snakebite

    Of COURSE this was in Australia.

    "What kind of person creates armor that restricts the soldier's vision so much?" you ask idly, watching extras shuffle around in stormtrooper outfits. "ONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE BEST GUARD AGAINST THE SERIOUS THREAT OF SPACE SNAKES," I interject, "IS CONSTANT VIGILANCE."

  8. Fifty Shades of Grey is the Fastest Selling R-Rated Movie in Fandango History

    See, I took a screenshot of Fandango's front page and turned the saturation all the way down, it's a joke.

    We're now at the T-minus one month until the release of Fifty Shades of Grey (I know you're all counting the days), and that means that tickets for the movie went up on Fandango for preorder recently. Want to hear how it's doing?

  9. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: “Sailor Venus’ Past: Minako’s Tragic Love”

    The one about Sailor Venus.

    The Senshi are mystified by a new influx of youma into Tokyo: they simply can't figure out which suspicious contest, suspicious new business, or suspicious celebrity they're associated with, and they've checked all the bath houses and dumpling shops in town!
