The iBoy Netflix trailer.

You know, I think that I’m going to give this one a shot.

Yes, sure, the science is absolutely absurd. Then again, so was Spectral’s, and I had a pretty good time. IBoy is coming out on Netflix on January 27th, and the kid’s superpowers remind me a lot of the Drummer’s in Planetary. Also: if you’ve never actually read Planetary then you should probably redress that unfortunate condition that you’re currently in. It’s one of the best superhero comic series ever written.  As in, in the top five.  Maybe in the top three.

Book of the Week: “The Occult Philosophy in the Elizabethan Age.”

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I was at a loss for this week’s: I asked my wife; and she said The Occult Philosophy in the Elizabethan Age (Routledge Classics). And then she warned me that it isn’t pop research, so pack a lunch before reading it.

Yes, a bit of a jump from Planetary Vol. 4: Spacetime Archaeology to this. It happens.

Book of the Week: Planetary 4.

Planetary Vol. 4: Spacetime Archaeology is the fourth and final collection of the main comic book series (there’s also Planetary: Crossing Worlds, which is a collection of three stand-alone crossovers [and worth it for the Batman one alone]) about mystery archeologists. I’ve only been waiting for it for two years (and thank goodness for birthday Amazon gift certificates, or I still would be waiting for it).

And so farewell to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls (Quirk Classics: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), which was also acquired via the intervention of birthday money. Such is the nature of the universe.
