A dark fantasy about Jeoffry, a cat who fights demons, a poet, who is Jeoffry’s human confined to an insane asylum, and Satan, who schemes to end the world.
Some of Game of Thrones‘ cast gathered one final time to discuss Season 8 (and THAT FINALE) at San Diego Comic-Con. Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), John Bradley West (Samwell Tarly), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Raleigh Ritchie (Greyworm), and Conleth Hill (Varys) all appeared, regaling Hall H with spoilers for a panel that closed with no time left for Q&A.
We’ve assembled highlights below—obviously this post is dark and full of spoilers!

I like details. Little things tell me everything about people, their society, their hopes and fears, the sky above them, the rock beneath them.
When I began writing Luna, I knew I would be building a world from scratch, but also one that adhered to the constraints of the physical realities of the moon. The Moon may have been Heinlein’s Harsh Mistress but we’ve learned a lot about Lady Luna since and she’s got leaner and meaner. A lot meaner. I wanted those facts to shape the world and lives of my characters, from low gravity to moon dust, which is seriously nasty stuff. I suppose it’s a “hard science fiction” book—though that’s an expression I hate. Hard science technically shapes the lives, loves, jealousies and ambitions of every one of my moon’s one point seven million citizens.
Before its panel yesterday, it was reported that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D next season will be its last.
To recap, Season 6 takes place a year after Coulson’s death, while S.H.I.E.L.D is rebuilding under Mack’s leadership. The agents are investing paranormal energies and find themselves encountering a new enemy known as “Shrike,” parasites that infect worlds and destroy them. In the latest episode that aired, May seemingly killed Sarge, the Director Coulson lookalike, the agents had teamed up with to try and defeat the Shrike.
So with Season 6 almost done, and Season 7 to be the last, what does that mean for the show? [Read more]
We were literally this close to seeing Thanos answer to the Living Tribunal in Avengers: Infinity War. On Friday, Christopher Markus and Scott McFeely sat down in Hall H at SDCC 2019 to talk about writing Avengers: Endgame, and they gave fans a glimpse of the cut scene that could have been.
Our timeline has a powerful Riot Grrrl tradition! However, not every band made it here—some, like Grape Ape, reached their power in other timelines, and are only known to us through appearances in other media. In this case, Annalee Newitz, a scribe of our timeline, documented Grape Ape and their glory in her forthcoming novel The Future of Another Timeline. But now, to our great excitement, they’ve shared one of their videos!
We have to admit we’re confused that this timeline’s Charlie Jane Anders managed to cross over to tend bar for a Grape Ape show? But no matter—click through for the video!
Humanity has accomplished a great many things since we started mastering technologies like writing and agriculture. But we still remain confined to this one tiny planet, without even a permanent presence on our own moon, and the dream of interplanetary colonization remains just that. So it’s a good thing we have a lot of great books in which humans go to live on other worlds.
When I was working on my new novel, The City in the Middle of the Night, I was inspired by a bunch of great books featuring humans colonizing other planets. Here are five recent colonization books that are especially fantastic.
Homage Comics was created in 1995 as an imprint of WildStorm Comics, itself one of the studios under the umbrella of Image Comics. Homage—named after the studio to which WildStorm founder Jim Lee belonged—was focused on writer-centered works. Image was famously artist-centric, as it was founded by a bunch of artists who hired writers to script their work. Homage, though, featured work developed by Kurt Busiek (Astro City), Jeff Mariotte (Desperadoes), James Robinson (Leave it to Chance), Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), and Warren Ellis, whose RED was a three-issue series with art by Cully Hamner published in 2003.
WildStorm was later made part of DC Comics, and RED was optioned for a film after Warner Bros. (who has first refusal on all DC properties) passed on it.
Talk about an ambitious crossover. Lev Grossman and the Russo brothers just sold a pilot to Amazon that sounds like Star Wars meets The Magicians.
Even though the Batwoman pilot only premiered on Wednesday, it’s already amassed a pretty sizable fanbase, and counting (apparently half the audience at Comic-Con left before Pennyworth screened)? Unfortunately, though, the show’s panel will be one star short. On Thursday, Ruby Rose announced via Instagram video that she’s had to drop out of the con last-minute to put some finishing touches on a Batwoman episode instead.
