Goku’s Worst Foe Is the Dragonball Z Franchise Itself in Resurrection F

The new Dragonball Z movie, titled Resurrection F, is really more of a remix than a resurrection. Or, better still, a greatest hits compilation, albeit one where the hits happen at light-speed and can destroy the planet. It’s a collection of everything you enjoy about DBZ, but it’s also all stuff you’ve seen before. » 8/07/15 12:05pm 8/07/15 12:05pm

On Sailor Moon Crystal Near Death Experiences Will Get You What You Want

Everyone wants something on Sailor Moon Crystal. The Black Moon want power. Usagi wants to go home with her friends. Tuxedo Mask wants to protect Chibi Usa. I want to move on from the endless exposition and get to the action. But as hard as Sailor Moon Crystal tries this week, not everyone gets what they wanted. » 5/16/15 8:03am 5/16/15 8:03am

Are Our Heroines Too Perfect?

Yesterday, I read a rather excellent article over a Comics Alliance titled “Smart, Nice and Sassy: ‘Good Girl’ Role Models Make Boring Heroes.” The central thesis of the article was that, yes, we’re getting more great female characters in comics these days, but is it possible they’re a little too great?
