Death Becomes Her: The ‘Pretty Deadly’ Mixtape

Pretty Deadly, by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Emma Rios, and Jordie Bellaire, is a story about stories. It's a fantasy western about Death's daughter Ginny, but it's truly a gorgeous, lyrical, epic poem about myth itself. And like traditional epic poems, there's love, and death, and vengeance.

We've put together a Pretty Deadly mixtape with a vaguely "Americana" style, with songs whose lyrics contain grand narratives about death. Expect murder ballads galore.

Cast Party: Who Should Star In A ‘Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye’ Movie?

cavecarson_featured

This week, I'm looking at one of my favorite DC comics of the moment: Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye from the Young Animal line. Co-created by Gerard Way, Jon Rivera, and Michael Avon Oeming, it breathes new life into Cave Carson, a Silver Age spelunker who was so forgotten that he was even on a team called the Forgotten Heroes, which you probably also don't remember.

Archie Andrews has always been quite the musician, and there are several stories involving him pursuing his dreams of rock stardom --- but his friends and family (and Reggie) have been in the musical spotlight too. For this playlist based on the current incarnation of the monthly Archie series by Mark Waid, Thomas Pitilli, Ryan Jampole, Joe Eisma, Veronica Fish et al, I decided to look at all the most beloved characters (and Reggie) and choose one song that fits each of them.

Today is Inauguration Day, and Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States. And really, it's obvious why he won. After eight years with one of the most qualified and accomplished presidents in generations, what America really needed was a vain, egotistical, thin-skinned braggart with a long history of bullying and abusive statements, absolutely no experience in public service, and a track record of astonishing failure.

If you voted to Make America Great Again, here are some comics to dig into while you wait for all those manufacturing jobs to come back, and for those pesky SJWs to finally be put in their place.

Enjoy The Madness: The ‘Shade the Changing Girl’ Mixtape [Music Week]

Shade The Changing Girl --- part of DC's Young Animal imprint --- tells the story of Loma, a rebellious alien who steals a magic coat of madness, runs away to Earth, and possesses the body of a comatose teenage Earth girl. Along with Cecil Castellucci's trippy script, the space-bending, psychedelic visuals from artists Marley Zarcone and Kelly Fitzpatrick are a core part of what makes Shade the Changing Girl so fantastic. When planning the playlist, I wanted to find weird, intense tech/pop songs, less focused on the lyrics and more on the mood of each song.

Listen, Bud: Nine Super-Hero Cartoon Themes Worth Remembering [Music Week]

Marvel
Marvel

When superheroes make the transition from comics to TV animation, it's always interesting to hear what kind of theme music they get. Songs with lyrics that explain who the heroes are can be fun, but they can also go awry. Instrumental tracks can be boring if you're not careful, but if they're well-executed, they can do a great job of creating just the tone you want for your cartoon.

I've put together a chronological list of nine memorable theme songs from TV superhero cartoons. Obviously I can't include them all, but I expect to see in the comments which of your favorites I've left out.
