Fanatic of all things Image Comics, Aquaman, time travel (especially Doctor Who), and crime stories. If you agree, then we'll get along famously.

I’ll definitely check it out at some point in the near future.
I have loved Gaiman’s work since I first read the initial run on “Sandman” and later his many works of prose writing. I did note when reading “Ocean” the Hempstocks were very much like the three sisters in “Sandman,” and liked that you brought that into your analysis of the subject.
I thought the first run of Young Avengers wasn’t anything to write home about, but the recent Gillen/McKelvie series was really fantastic. I hadn’t noticed the points you had brought up about the diversity (beyond the relationship between Wiccan and Hulkling), and found this article to be really well done.
Watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” always struck me as being a sad occurrence, simply because there are instances that don’t feel very festive or happy. The ending certainly is, yet others seem to make you lament the tragic flaws in Bailey’s character. You bring up some interesting points here, and it might be interesting to take this idea and look more in depth at some other festive movies, such as an adaptation of “A Christmas Carol.”
It’s interesting that you took a film in “The Lion King” that follows (and set) so many different story beats that nearly every Disney film would later follow with a film like “Frozen,” which arguably breaks those rules and sets a new path for later animated movies to follow. It’s an interesting juxtaposition that I really enjoyed.
The way you broke down all of the different heroes to show how they matter to audiences was an interesting read. It really made me think about some of the superhero films of the past decade.
I thought your selection of films showed a diverse range, not focusing on just one specific genre or focusing in on movies everyone has heard of. Nice list.
As a fan of Aquaman for a long time, I appreciate the points you bring up here and show how he isn’t just a joke. This is an article that all the people who mock him should read.
