Featured TitleBack to Mysterious Island Trade
by Blue Water Productions

Inspired by the classic tale by Jules Verne, this story goes back to the land that he created. Mysterious Island has risen again, this time in 2008 and the infamous Captian Nemo is back to command a new set of monsters.

Two zoologists who’ve been hired to survey the day to day life of penguins on a rogue iceberg end up finding out their job is a lot more complicated than they originally expected. The entire primary cast is original, although Landis created a plot device to fit in a slew of Harryhausen monsters that a lot of people will probably be happy to see. The group later discovers that their secret helper is the reclusive Captain Nemo

Practical Skills and Advice for the Likeable Modern Geek

Although it may not be good for their pasty white skin, Geeks these days are enjoying a moment in the sun. From Pop Culture to High-Tech Everything, Geeks rule and everybody else, well, drools.

Pick of the Week

Pick of the WeekThe Ages of Superman: Essays on the Man of Steel in Changing Times
by McFarland

Since Superman first appeared on the cover of Action Comics #1 in 1938, the superhero has changed with the times to remain a relevant icon of American popular culture. This collection explores the evolution of the Superman character and demonstrates how his alterations mirror historical changes in American society.

Beginning with the original comic book and ending with the 2011 Grounded storyline, these essays examine Superman’s patriotic heroism during World War II, his increase in power in the early years of the Cold War, his death and resurrection at the end of the Cold War, and his recent dramatic reimagining.

By looking at the many changes the Man of Steel has undergone to remain pertinent, this volume reveals as much about America as it does about the champion of Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
