We found out at San Diego Comic-Con this year that there will be a Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks crossover coming our way in 2023.

Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang Talk to Tor.com About Paper Girls TV Adaptation and Whether They’ll Work Together Again

When writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang began work on their comic book series Paper Girls back in 2015, they had no idea that a version of the story would make it to the small screen.

An Empowering Twist on a Classic: The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

H.G. Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau has seen its share of retellings and adaptations since it was first published in 1896. Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is another one of these retellings, but to simply categorize as such does this story an injustice.
