​Can The Force Awakens Live Up To The Insane Hype It's Already Created?

So apparently some kind of Star Wars trailer dropped last week? I live in the future, so I'm not sure, but since I could do two whole PAs just on The Force Awakens questions, I feel pretty good about making the assumption. But don't worry, we still have time for Marvel movies, DC TV, Evangelion, and, of course,… » 12/03/14 10:00am 12/03/14 10:00am

​Why Does Fox Keep Fucking Up The Fantastic Four?!

I got so many good questions this week — well, and maybe a few good questions from the week before, which I'd accidentally stuffed in one of my boots for some reason and just found again — that this week's "Postal Apocalypse" is super-sized! Get comfortable! Get a snack! Say goodbye to your loved ones! It's a doozy! » 11/12/14 9:00am 11/12/14 9:00am

Will The End Of The Game Of Thrones TV Show Ruin The Books?

Greetings and salutations, all! I know you're all excited about the new Marvel Phase 3 films, which are scheduled all the way up through 2019! Since I live in the post-apocalyptic future, let me give you guys just a bit of advice, okay? I wouldn't get your hearts set on seeing Avengers: Infinity War Part II. » 10/29/14 9:08am 10/29/14 9:08am

​Believe It Or Not, Darker And Grimmer Isn't Always Better

Greetings, my little stamp-lickers! I wish I had some kind of new, amazing post-apocalyptic adventure to share with you, but after Ape City, I'm taking a break. Maybe sleet nor snow nor pouring rain can't stop the mail, but a bunch of angry intelligent apes can make me take a vacation. But not from your letters! » 9/24/14 8:42am 9/24/14 8:42am

​Why America Will Never Truly Be Able To Make Its Own Anime

Hello, folks. I'm sorry for the absence of last week's mail column; suffice it to say there was some… difficulty in escaping the intelligent apes, and I couldn't do it without endangering myself. In related news, if you ever go to Ape City, they will no longer be fooled by ape costumes. Just FYI. Now, on with the mail! » 9/17/14 8:00am 9/17/14 8:00am

​Why Are Superhero Movies So Much Better Than Superhero Comics?

Greetings, my stamp stars. I must escape this land ruled by apes. Generally it's pretty great here — the apes are chill, the banana wine is pretty good — but they have me delivering the mail here too, and half of what they send to each other is their own feces, because they're too civilized to throw it at each other. » 9/03/14 8:10am 9/03/14 8:10am

​Is The Age Of The Superhero Team-Up Movie Upon Us?

Greetings, my little stamp scamps. I've wandered into a new area of my post-apocalyptic world where intelligent apes rule instead of man. They can speak, they have they have their own society… I know there's only one thing I must do: Come back with bananas and see if I can rule them as their god. Wish me luck. » 8/20/14 9:40am 8/20/14 9:40am

​It's Been A Bad Week For Strong Female Characters

I think I've finally discovered what caused my mysterious, unknown apocalypse. I believe the illness known as "con flu" — in which one sick person at a con basically makes every attendee sick — mutated in some way to affect everybody that even thought about Comic-Con this week. Because I feel like shit. But not as bad… » 7/30/14 9:02am 7/30/14 9:02am

The Argument For Being Genuinely Optimistic About Batman V. Superman

I'm not being sarcastic. Despite my previous comments and constant unease regarding DC's future cinematic endeavors, I have tried to make the case why there are many reasons to look forward to these movies, and even more reasons to hope. Seriously, this is a Batman V. Superman-criticism-free zone. Read on if you don't… » 7/09/14 8:11am 7/09/14 8:11am
