Summer is well and truly here, and that means that the nights are filled with barbeques and patio drinks…and of course, moths, who just can’t stay away from those party vibes! As well as being an uninvited guest at summer gatherings, moths are the underrated cousin to the butterfly in the world of pop culture. They aren't as flashy or as colorful, and there are far fewer moth characters to be found in the pages of books or on the screen, but there are a few. This month, we are celebrating the dark and fuzzy winged ones that appear across fictional world and in pop culture, whether they're the star of the show or just a helpful little friend.

Big news! There's a musical component to the graphic novel Giraffes on Horseback Salad: Salvador Dali, the Marx Brothers, and the Strangest Movie Never Made: a soundtrack for the book!
While the album will not officially come out until about a month after Giraffes on Horseback Salad goes on sale, author Josh Frank wanted to share the musical book experience earlier by offering three songs you can listen to online starting March 19, 2019. And here's the coolest part: these songs are "sung" in Giraffes on Horseback Salad, so you can pair these up while reading the graphic novel. Ready for things to get surreal?

Captain Marvel is hitting theaters nationwide this week and we couldn’t be more excited. Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson in the sure to be blockbuster film, has a storied history in the Marvel universe. She came onto the scene in 1968 as the first to hold the Ms. Marvel name. (Kamala Khan currently holds the title, long may she reign.) In 2012, she assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel -- a role originally held by Mar-Vell. And we’ve been cheering her on ever since.
