Josh Look got the Astonishing X-Men Omnibus for Christmas, and all you get is this crummy review
Observant followers of my comic articles here on the Fort will realize that I promised more coverage of Marvel's Point One line this month. However, roughly half of the books in the line for this month will not reach my local comic shop in time for my article, and which ones that have, well...the less said of them, the better. Who doesn't love the X-Men on some level? When I was in the third grade, I don't think there was anything that seemed cooler to me than the X-Men. This was a bit...
General Video Game Rant - Video Games Are All Grown Up
Video games are just about as old as I am. I was just young whelp when pinball halls started to feature stand-up arcade games, and we were the first family on our block to own an Atari (probably because the other families on our block were retirees).

Squaring Circles: Anachronism in Fantasy
My current reading material is Tom Shippey’s JRR Tolkein: Author of the Century, a compilation of critical essays on Tolkiens work (and no prizes for guessing from the title that they’re largely very positive). It’s an absolutely superb book and one that I’d encourage anyone with more than a passing interest in Middle-Earth to acquire and read but I’ll save the details for a Trash Culture review piece sometime. Rather, Shippey raises a point almost at the beginning of the book that has wide ramifications for anyone, anywhere who likes fantasy, whatever they...
