The premiere heads to Thailand, and reveals exactly how this illegal fishing is ruining the ocean floor. One scene where a puffer fish suffocates on the deck will draw some tears as the reporter talks about Little Nemo and how all the film’s characters lay dying on the deck in front of him. The trawler pulls up the entire ocean floor including delicate corals and octopus that are shown dying...read more »

Jordan Jones lists seven Nes titles you may have missed…
When I was very young, one of my weekend traditions was going to the family-owned video store down the street to rent a game for my Nes. I would spend upwards of an hour deciding which of the countless games lining the store walls would be the title that I’d spend hours trying to beat before Monday morning hit. Keep in mind, this was over 20 years ago. I didn’t have the luxury of reading reviews online, and I didn’t even know magazines for games existed at the time. This meant that box-art was a really important factor in my decision-making, which of course meant exposure to some truly awful games, but also allowed me to discover some lesser-known gems. Here are some of those games, and a few that simply do not get the admiration they deserve. »

Recently I’ve been reading through the Sailor Moon manga that my friend David has generously been lending me. I used to watch the anime when I was kid and had been curious about tackling these books for a while. Reading through these books made me reflect on the greater world of comics and an aspect of it that I haven’t addressed here yet: branching out beyond American comics.
I love American/Western comics. It’s certainly the bulk of what I’ve read. Not just the superhero stuff, but comics and graphic novels like Stuck Rubber Baby, Fun Home, March, Blankets, The Sculptor, and many many more.

In his weekly New York Time column last week, the New York Times’ wine expert Eric Asimov wrote about how to pick a wine store. He stressed that if a person cared about wine and wanted to drink better and more confidently, the best thing one can do is to find a good wine store and then cultivate a good relationship with the staff.
There’s an enormous amount of choices for wine and good stores help consumers select and choose more wisely. They might do this with the way they arrange the wines, or with a friendly and knowledgeable staff or even through handwritten recommendations placed near the wine.
As I reach this wine column, I was drawing the inevitable parallels between wine stores and comics shops. Geek culture also offers such a diverse tapestry of choices. It can be difficult for fans and consumers to navigate through it »
