A Very Geekly Wedding

By Christina Ladd on

As some of you already know (especially if you follow us on Twitter), we got married!  We can’t claim to be a power couple like Jennifer and Tim, but we’re pretty fucking pleased with ourselves. Our cats are happy for us too. Thrilled, even. If you have a Facebook account, you may have noticed many …

Sailor Moon Review #25

By Christina Ladd on

It’s the end of the world and thank God, because that also means the end of Sailor Crystal (for now, anyway – no word yet on season three) is swiftly approaching. When we last saw our ineffectual heroes, Prince Demande was about to touch the past and present Silver Crystals together, bringing about the end …

Sailor Moon #24 Review

By Christina Ladd on

Each fortnight, the pit of cold, nauseating dread in my stomach sinks just a little bit lower when I realize that it’ll soon be time to do another review, and I have to once again contemplate how much this show will ruin a couple of hours, and in what way. I only get so many …

Sailor Moon #23 Review

Sailor Moon #22

By Christina Ladd on

For those of you still with us, Sailor Moon and everyone she loves are in deadly peril. Time for drastic measures! Or…well, time for running, anyway. Chibi-Usa is missing, and King Endymion enlists Tuxedo Mask to rush off with him, but they tell Venus to stay put. Which she does, although she pouts that she …

Sailor Moon #21

By Christina Ladd on

Just about the only thing Sailor Moon Crystal has going for it at this point is its ability to create striking images. I’m not talking about character creation; the characters are still flat. I just mean that there is some good staging going on, creating drama and power, despite the otherwise lackluster visuals. In the …
