Marvel’s Agent Carter: Self-Worth and Street-Cred

agent carter

(Jonathan Ryan posting for Rogue writer, Jen Schlameuss-Perry.)The first season of Marvel’s Agent Carter came to a close last night. I sincerely hope they make a second season—they certainly left the door open to it. Since the first episode aired, I eagerly awaited each new one. I loved the setting (post-WWII), the costumes, the storyline and the cars…so many pretty cars… And I also loved the themes they dealt with; reconciliation, knowing your worth, seeing the worth of others, ambition, hon … [Read more...]

Daredevil Teaser Trailer is Here! Fighting! Blindness! Catholicism!

Daredevil

As everyone who has been around the Rogue long enough knows, I'm a huge Daredevil fan (Click here  and here to see why). So, when Marvel announced they would do a TV series on Netflix, it was all I could do to refrain from uttering a Ron Swanson giggle of glee.The tone of this trailer...wow.

My First Comic Con: How We Will Cover it

So, I'm about three days away from my first Comic Con ever. Yes, that's right, I've never been to a comic con.

You know what this sounds like to me? Sounds like the SLC con is threatening San Diego's primacy and someone decided to get pissy.From Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer Dan Farr: “This cease and de … [Read more...]

Once again, I'm floored how the major religious media is missing out on the DC Comics Trinity War. Just to make sure, I did a Google search for ANY  religious media covering a comic book event centered around a major theological event, the question of sin.You know  who I found?  Just usAs thrilled as I am to talk theological issues in comic books,  I don't want to be the only one. I'm trying hard to get Christians to see the discussions going on in a community (Geeks) not known for their … [Read more...]

Chris Bowsman reviews: Captain America: Forever Allies

Captain America: Forever Allies cover

 I seem to have a “classic” theme going on lately, so I could think of no better way to throw us back to modern times, further into sci-fi, AND celebrate the 4th of July than with this graphic novel that pays tribute to Captain America’s past and future! The story begins by explaining that Steve Rogers is dead, and his sidekick Bucky Barnes visits his grave, inheriting the costume and title of “Captain America”, a title Bucky doesn’t want at first.Bucky remembers back to his days in … [Read more...]
