Next in DC’s Snagglepuss and Flintstones Comics: Political Persecution and Judging Humanity's Worth

Last year, the biggest surprise from DC Comics’ radically re-invented Hanna-Barbera comic book series was The Flintstones title written by Mark Russell. It was filled with prehistoric hipsters, existential dread, and dark philosophical undertones. Russell has even more messed-up stuff in store for Fred, Wilma, and...…

Margo and Eliot Have a Fairy-Sized Secret to Keep on the Next Season of The Magicians

The very last shot of last season’s The Magicians showed the fairies arriving to Fillory in force to take over the kingdom. It looked like war was on the horizon.

The New Once Upon a Time Is Surprisingly Good... When Its Own Legacy Isn't Holding it Back

I’ll admit, I went into the New York Comic Con premiere of Once Upon a Time’s seventh season hoping for little and expecting even less. But much to my surprise, the new story is good.

The First Trailer for Marvel's Runaways Is All About Very Evil Parents and Their Very Upset Kids

The thing that brings Marvel’s Runaways together isn’t that they’re all kids with superpowers that make them social outcasts. Instead, each of their parents is part of a doomsday cult. If your actual family is trying to bring about the apocalypse, you’d probably cling to your friends, too.
