This past Thanksgiving we went to Regina to visit family, and with 4 kids under the age of 7 in the family, we needed something fun to keep them occupied. A visit to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum fit the bill. I've been visiting this place for years, as a kid, in my previous job as … Continue reading Thanksgiving with Megamunch
I recently picked this up for a quick read from the library. It was a Star Wars book and was put out with some recommended reads. Based on the last Star Wars novel I read, I figured it couldn't be any worse. It's the first novel by Alexander Freed.

I watched the premiere of the other new Marvel series last week, and wanted to give this one a go, despite not really enjoying Inhumans. There are several differences between the two shows, with Inhumans taking place in the Marvel cinematic universe, and The Gifted taking place in the X-men universe. Though the show takes … Continue reading The Gifted Series Premiere
The Cover This cover, by Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair has a lot of what I like about the current Justice League: Lots of vibrant colour, action, and the suggestion of conflict within!

I sat down and watched the two-part series opener, mostly out of curiosity. It had been receiving terrible reviews, but I wanted to check it out anyway.
