Dive Deep With “Nemo” On The Wednesday Run

One of the earliest childhood memories I have is heading out of cold, grey Toronto with my parents during March Break to spend a week in sunny, warm, Florida and visit Disney World.

What a sight that was! The Magic Castle, the rides, the fireworks and the cartoons, walking alongside, in real life! Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – especially Goofy!

Of all the rides I liked, I remember Pirates of the Caribbean as a top favourite. But there was another attraction that took hold of my young imagination, and now, nearly forty years later, still hasn’t let it go.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!

Inspired by the serialized novel of famed science fiction author Jules Verne 1869, I was taken with the design and functionality of the Nautilus ride at Disney, the fictional Captain Nemo’s famous sea monster-inspired submarine.

Today, imaginations around the world are fired up with the release of a new hardcover graphic novel, dedicated to the old Captain – and his awesome sub!

Today, Nemo hits the shelves!

Believe In The Magic Of “The Stardust Kid” On The Wednesday Run

The holiday season is full of magic!

Whether it’s snow softly falling from the nighttime sky, children skating on a frozen pond, the reflection of your own face, peering in storefront windows draped in seasonal cheer, or random acts of kindness from strangers, December can show you that magic exists in our very real world.

But magic exists in other worlds as well – and, occasionally, we get to go on a trip through them via the best in fantasy fiction!

That brings us to today, and a new publication from renowned publisher, Boom! Studios, and two of comicdom’s most fertile, magical minds!

Just in time for the magic of the holiday season, comes the magically wonderful, The Stardust Kid!

On the last episode of Outlander, Claire got a cool reception from her sister-in-law Jenny at Lallybroch. To further complicate their relationship, she and Jamie were entrusted with Jenny and Ian’s son, even though Jamie previously failed to tell his parents that young Ian was with him when the young man went missing from home. Ian was to recover the treasure chest from the island so that Jamie could pay Laoghaire’s alimony. Unfortunately for everyone, Ian was intercepted and swept away on another vessel during his mission.

Outlander S03 E08: ‘First Wife’

rsz_ep31

Because I was on vacation last week, I wasn’t able to recap Outlander episode seven, “Crème de Menthe.” So, this is what you missed in a nutshell. (Note: There are spoilers for both episode seven “Crème de Menthe” and episode eight “First Wife”). Remember the guy who attacked Claire in her room? She killed him, despite her best efforts to save his life. He was sent by Sir Percival, who shows up at Madame Jeanne’s brothel in a fruitless search for Jamie’s illegal liquor. Ian Murray is looking for his son young Ian, and Jamie denies having seen him, even though his nephew has been working for him in his smuggling operation. There’s a fire at the print shop, after another of Sir Percival’s men searches it and finds pamphlets that could get Jamie into big trouble. We were introduced to brother and sister Archie and Margaret Campbell. Claire believes that Margaret suffers from a mental disorder. Will they pop up in a future episode? And what was the biggest revelation in “Crème de Menthe”? Jamie is married to another woman, and that’s sure to upset Claire. Caught up now? Okay, now on to episode eight, “First Wife,” after the jump.
