The Days of Future Past with Terminator: Dark Fate

The meaning behind Terminator: Dark Fate may well on how destiny can’t be changed. Sarah Connor tried to keep her young son John safe and in the future, the elder version reprogrammed a T-800 to prevent his death. When Skynet can mess with the past by sending a bunch of robot assassins to various moments in time, the inevitable has to happen and the question has to be asked, do they go Back to the Future?

A lot of questions are raised in light of the grander picture. Time travel stories are always going to be a head scratcher because of the effects of Schrödinger’s cat in the timeline. Robert Zemeckis’ film (and Legends of Tomorrow) explains that alternate time-lines can be shut down so long the heroes act fast enough before the effects become permanent. That way, only one continuity exists. James Cameron (who’s taking far too long to make sequels to Avatar) returned to his seminal creation to say everything we saw that he wasn’t involved in is all alternate universe material.

Dark Horse Comic’s Crone to Arrive Nov 6th!

31 Oct

Art: Justin Greenwood
Colors: Brad Simpson
Letters: Pat Brosseau

Spoiler Alert

Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

When a comic book is simply titled, Crone, some readers may think it’s a work developed for the Halloween season. After all, the name implies an old witch, well practised in eldritch magiks.

Instead, it’s a fantasy epic. Bloody Bliss was once a beautiful red headed champion in the likes of Red Sonja and her reputation was to be feared. Over the years she never lost the fire. The only problem was with time; it is cruel and she has not died in the field of glory like she hoped. She’s not like those immortal valkyries.

Dark Horse Comics’ The Mask is Back! & Running for President?

Dark Horse Comics

Released Oct 16, 2019

I’ve been a fan of Dark Horse Comics’ The Mask way before the movies and cartoons. While these alternative takes were fun and light-hearted, I missed the darker quality which existed in the comic books. I kept up when it was shuffled to Mayhem–back when this franchise’s future was in doubt. When other versions took precedence (and the publisher had crossovers, including with a certain clown prince of crime), I took a break.

I’ve been wanting to see this franchise return to its roots and “I Pledge Allegiance” serves up a lot of blood and vindictiveness. This latest chapter can not be any timelier due to the political climate of our times. I’m also amused the first issue is coming off the heels of the just as socially charged The Joker movie.
