  • Legend has it that the name of Marvel Comics’ super-spy organization S.H.I.E.L.D. was inspired by the espionage television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Whatever the origin, S.H.I.E.L.D. has spawned so many acronym-titled teams it can be hard to keep them straight. While by no means an exhaustive list, this should help you tell your S.H.I.E.L.D. from your S.W.O.R.D. from your U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M.

  • There are those who can shop til they drop. Whilst others live for the thrill of a thrift store find. When it comes to shopping though there are a few notable characters that do more than simply dress to impress.

  • When you think about cats in comics, who comes to mind? Some of the most obvious are the cats who live in classic comic strips—Garfield, with his love of lasagna and hatred of Mondays, Hobbes, the beloved stuffed tiger come to life, even the multitudes of nameless cats that pop up in comic strip after comic strip online. But the funny pages aren’t the only place to find incredible felines. Comic books and graphic novels have their fair share of four-footed characters with real depth and charm. These aren’t cats that dispense weekly soundbites or tired catchphrases, but fully developed characters who lie, fight crime, swear, and discuss the stars and their place in the universe. Some silly, some complicated—these are the ten comic book cats we love best.

  • Have you been attending Frankenstein’s Support Group for Misunderstood Monsters? If not, there's no better time to join. The group meets right here every other Thursday...and here's a guide to some of the monstrous misfits who you'll see sitting next to you.

  • Marvel is certainly not afraid of experimenting, especially when it comes to the latest small-screen addition to their cinematic universe, Inhumans. The new series officially premiered Sept 29, and a shortened version of the first two episodes were released in IMAX at the start of the month as well. It was an interesting move, for an interesting series concept: a group of genetically-enhanced royals who live on the moon, embroiled in family intrigue as one of their own takes the throne for himself.

    The series features quite a large central cast, with multiple members of the royal family front and center, and each with their own distinct powers and personalities. We're taking a look at some of these fascinating new superheroes and the kind of books they would be found curled up with on a quiet evening in the Attilan library.
