Guest Blog: Idealism And The Greatcoats by Jamie Ryder

I’ve written a guest post about idealism in fantasy books over at Mightythorjrs. I haven’t seen the spirit of idealism captured more perfectly than in Sebastien De Castell’s Greatcoat series. Read the books. Seriously.

100 Followers And A Personal Admission

Just over two weeks ago I started this blog and the reception has been unlike anything I imagined. I’ve hit 100 followers and been nominated for two blogging awards. To thank everyone for the support I’ve decided to share something deeply personal about myself as a way of really understanding me. I’ve suffered from anxiety and low self-esteem for the past ten years or so. It’s made it hard for me to meet new people, believe in myself and to form a lasting relationship with someone.

On The Warpath With James Proudstar

Comics have a long history of representing characters of different origins, and many aren’t as well known as they should be. One of my favourites is Warpath of The X-Men. James Proudstar is an Apache, and one of the few Native American superheroes. He originally blamed The X-Men for the death of his brother John before becoming part of the team.

Why Vegeta Is Better Than Goku

Growing up in the 90s I remember cartoons being a massive part of my childhood. Cartoon Network, Toonami, Disney and Nickelodeon were the only channels I paid attention to. One of the shows that stood out the most was Dragon Ball Z. Goku was the big, powerful hero who saved the day. But I always found Vegeta far more entertaining, and I’m going to examine why he is the better character in my opinion.

How Augmented Reality Is Taking Over The World

Since the introduction of Pokémon Go, the app has been downloaded over 75 million times across iOS and Android and earned the record of being most downloaded app during a launch week. The app owes its success to a mix of nostalgia, ease of use and addictive incentives, e.g. levelling up as you capture and evolve more Pokémon.

As The Pop Culture Playlist was so well received last week, I’m going to turn it into a regular segment. This week, I’m putting the spotlight on Red Hood with a playlist that tells the story of his relationship with Batman and how he’ll always do what he thinks is right.
