Sep

Someone really wanted to challenge President Obama to a Pokemon battle. Earlier today, a man dressed in a Pikachu hat and shirt, and holding a stuffed Pokemon toy, jumped the White House fence and made a ru for it. He obviously didn't make it far before he was apprehended by Secret Service agents, although the White House went into a temporary lockdown anyways, just in case Team Rocket was lurking about.

Is France's Cult Anime Hit 'Wakfu' Worth a Netflix Marathon?

Sep
11

When we say cult, we mean it: aside from attracting prime ratings on French television since its 2008 debut, Wakfu has an equally rabid fan following worldwide--earlier this year the kickstarter for an English debut surpassed its goal by some 600%, raking in nearly $500,000. The show follows the adventures of Yugo, a boy blessed with Portal-like teleportation powers in a world similar in look and feel to Ragnarok and Maple Story. It debuts on Netflix Sept. 14th, so the question is: to binge watch, or not to binge watch?

The Pull List: Grant Morrison's 'Annihilator' Dazzles, Ponders Art as Salvation

Sep

Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where we check out a first isssue and tell you whether or not to follow that comic based only on that. It's another Grant Morrison work this week, so expect meta-narratives, suppositions on an ultimate reality, all that good stuff. If there's any indication that the magic Morrison machine is slowing down, it isn't in Annihilator, which ponders and intertwines the poles of life and death, art and meaninglessness, creator and creation. It's the story of a Hollywood screenwriter at the end of his mental and physical tether, when his own written creation materializes and suggests a partnership.
