Full disclosure: I was about 5 or 6 years too old when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first hit to have any kind of real nostalgic appreciation for it. Outside of remembering my kid sister being way into it for about the first five years or so. Given that it’s my job to know about these things, I’ve since caught myself up with the help of a colleague and a true-blue fan’s exhaustive summarizing. But none the less, if you’re looking to find out whether or not this movie will “do the job” for genuine Power Rangers devotees I might not be the person to ask.

Don’t feel like you ever get enough sleep? You’re not alone. We could all use a little more shuteye, especially with all the business we have to take care of from day to day as well as daily drama. That might be the idea behind this Japanese sleep cafe, which lets you take a nap in a $9,000 bed, sip coffee, and take in romantic mood lighting. In short, we kind of want to be there right now.
Coady and the Creepies is the new mini-series from BOOM! Studios’ creator-focused imprint, BOOM! Box, home to awesome series such as Lumberjanes, SLAM!, and The Backstagers. I’ve been following the imprint for awhile now, with their Jonesy being one of my favorite series coming out. BOOM! Box gives creators, especially up-and-coming creators, a place to tell a story that doesn’t necessarily fit in at other publishers, normally in a mini-series format. Tending to focus on a younger audience, BOOM! Box shares a lot of the same sensibilities as many modern cartoons, embracing a much more inclusive worldview while still managing to be fun. Coady and the Creepies #1 start the series out on a great note, feeling right at home among the publisher’s other work.
Ever since we all first saw the post-credits Ferris Bueller parody at the end of the first Deadpool, one question has dominated the Deadpool 2 conversation: Who will play Cable? In the final scene, Mr. Pool told the audience the X-Force leader would feature in the sequel, though they didn’t have an actor yet. All they needed was a big guy with a flat top like, he said, Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren or Keira Knightly.
