    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. GLAAD Report Predictably Dour on Representation of LGBTQ Characters in Mainstream Film

    Oh, Hollywood.

    The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation have released their 2014 Studio Responsibility Index, finding that of the more than one hundred films released in 2013 by seven of the biggest mainstream movie studios in America, a mere seventeen contained any LGBTQ characters, even when counting the most minor of roles.

    Transform me into a gorgeous animator!

    For the better part of a year, animators labored to reproduce an episode of Sailor Moon, with each person taking a single shot (though some of them more than one), and now the fruits of their efforts are finally available to watch! Here's the results of Moon Animate Make Up, "Fractious Friends," or, "Fractious Frames." A little animator humor.

  4. Disney Told Us About Their Big Hero 6 Action Figures, Yes, There’s a Big Plush Baymax

    Answering the important questions.

    This week we got an exciting box full of Big Hero 6 swag, courtesy the folks at Disney who are putting together their first Marvel-based movie explicitly for kids. Of course we took a bunch of pictures. But the box also came complete with a flash drive full of preview pictures of the movie's upcoming toy line, so we're going to share those with you too. And to answer the question you are already asking: Yes, there is a huggable Baymax.

  5. Gender Role Reversal in Farscape: Mad Space Science and Mad Soldier Skills

    Venture into the wormhole with us...

    A cursory glance could dismiss John and Aeryn as the requisite science fiction heteronormative, physically attractive couple. While admittedly, neither Ben Browder nor Claudia Black are hard to look at, this could not be further from the truth. So many gender stereotypes and tropes are chewed up and spat out by Farscape’s power couple that it warrants a second and/or third glance.

  9. Nobody Can Hide Their Villainy in This New Trailer for Gotham

    Holy rogues, Batman!

    You might think to yourself: hey, proto-rogues gallery, how about you dial down the obvious hallmarks of your villain identities? But let's be real. We're talking about a group of people that works their motifs into helicopters, bombs, fish, and illicit nightclubs. Your average rogue will plan an elaborate, themed heist the way other folks would plan an elaborate, themed junior prom. This is about as subtle as we can reasonably expect them to get.
