What did you think?? Note the awesome music by Clinton Shorter. It’s got an almost “fairy tale” feel to it, eh? Don’t forget to check out the other goodies on Syfy’s website, including the full NY Comic Con panel!
And if all that weren’t enough, there’s a special Expanse screening on December 3rd, in Santa Fe, at the Jean Cocteau Theater, where Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck will be available to sign books (and body parts?!). George R. R. Martin will be there too! More info at their official blog here.
ONE. MORE. THING. It was recently announced that there will be a DIGITAL release for The Expanse, a few weeks ahead of the television premiere date. On NOVEMBER 23RD, “Dulcinea” (Episode 1) will be available to stream in the United States, on syfy.com, among other websites. That is TEN days away. Tennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
At this point, I should probably just make a separate category for The Expanse, huh??? Check out this short “Page to Screen” video about the TV Show, and drool and giggle and rub the side of your face against your bedroom walls because why isn’t it DECEMBER YET.
I haven’t mentioned The Expanse in a while . . . OH WAIT I TOTALLY HAVE HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
PLUS! official posters by illustrator Tim Bradstreet:
Here I am. Back from the land of the dead. How long has it been since I wrote something here? A year? Probably more. I ask myself why I am here. I don’t really know. I mean I DO know, but I uhh . . .
I will talk shortly about a game. A game I’ve just recently finished. There are no plot or story spoilers here
but there are some out-of-context images that are visual spoilers; it would hurt me physically to spoil this game. Nope, and no tips or tricks on how to play it either. I’m not even reviewing it or rating it this is a review, Tyler, you idiot.
It is–without a doubt–the best game I’ve ever played.

Here’s the cover for James S. A. Corey’s sixth entry into The Expanse series, Babylon’s Ashes, by Daniel Dociu:
It’s that time of the year again. . . the FIFTH season of Homeland begins on Sunday, October 4! Should tide me over until The Expanse. . .
. . . that I’ve ever heard.
“Blinded by nostalgia” indeed.
The science fiction genre has its own, weird little niche in the television world. Despite the increasing mainstream success of Game of Thrones, which, let us be clear, falls under the purview of “fantasy,” shows like Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Battlestar Galactica remain stimuli for scoffs and sneers by
losers with no taste average persons. “It’s cheesy!” they’ll say, or “It just doesn’t make any sense,” they’ll say, decrying a particular show’s sorry special effects or stilted acting. These are understandable reasons for avoiding science fiction TV. But stay with me here. I think I might start actually saying something.

Despite my seething desire to one day walk those hallowed halls of Comic-Con, I have to confess that I’ve never actually read a comic book. At least, not one that I can remember, not one that made any kind of impact on me. Sure, growing up, I’d read the “funnies”–comic strips like FoxTrot, or Garfield–but nothing concerning radioactive spiders or international leagues of justice. That particular action-hero material was what appeared on television, in the form of shows like Batman: The Animated Series, or X-Men: Evolution.
It just never occurred to my younger self to pick up a comic book, when a moving, animated, and voiced version was just a remote control button away. Until now. Continue reading The Comic Book That Started It All (For Me)
