  1. Black Sea’s Kevin Macdonald and Jude Law Talk Underwater Heists, Real-Life Rescues

    This week Kevin Macdonald and Jude Law were in New York to promote their new movie, Black Sea, a smart, gritty, and definitively old-fashioned heist-survival-action movie set on a submarine. More like the'70s film Sorcerer than Black Hat, it's good counter-programming for some of the slicker action movies we’ve been getting recently.

  3. The Mary Sue Interview: Comic Historian Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson on Her New Book & Women in Comics

    If you’ve ever read a DC comic, you owe a thank you to Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson for founding the iconic company, and paving the way for the comic book as we know it today. If you’re unfamiliar with his name, I have good news for you: His granddaughter, comic historian and writer Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson, is dedicated to preserving the memory of her grandfather and getting his incredible story of comics, publishing, story-telling, and life as an American soldier to the masses.

  4. Interview: Madeleine Flores, Creator of the Help Us! Great Warrior Comic!

    All I want is a hero who'll braid a mace into my hair.

    Help Us! Great Warrior is a webcomic from cartoonist, writer, animator, and Bee and Puppycat collaborator Madeleine Flores, that is getting its own monthly print series from Boom! Studios! We're big fans of Great Warrior and it's tiny, confident, lecherous, loyal, bean-like, sword-wielding, monster-slaying, lady protagonist. In fact, I may have described it as "like if Lumpy Space Princess had become the Hero of Ooo instead" to several people in order to get them to read it.

  5. The Mary Sue Interview: Code and Cupcakes Founder Jen Myers

    She quotes Kelly Sue DeConnick. We're smitten.

    "Being treated differently because you’re different is not something with strict boundary lines—it’s like colored dye dropped into water. It permeates everything until all you can see is the dye, and then how do you effectively separate what is dye and what is water? But you know it’s there. It is there."

  7. The Mary Sue Interview: The Writers of Big Eyes Talk Emotional Abuse, Daughters, And Multimillion Dollar Art Fraud

    Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are two of the most innovative writers of biopics in the business today. The twosome discovered the story of one of the biggest art frauds ever perpetrated and reached out to artist Margaret Keane, eager to tell her story. What they found, besides the hilarious and thrilling story of the con, was a deeper story of a woman who lost her sense of self in marriage, but found redemption when she took back her name and declared ownership of her remarkable artwork.
