It seems only yesterday Whovians were [not] so patiently awaiting the announcement of who the 12th Doctor would be. Well guess what? Four years, and a Peter Capaldi, later we find ourselves once again awaiting the announcement of who will step into the iconic role. This morning the BBC dropped the news that the announcement of Doctor number 13 would be happening THIS Sunday, July 16th, and a nifty little trailer to go with it. Click to check out the video.
Wednesday mornings mean we are bringing you the newest Marvel comic releases for New Comic Book Day! Click below to check out the Marvelous Goodies that are out this week!
Recently we were asked to take a look at the second installment of the Geek-Girl mini series published by Markosia. A comic about an awesome college student who gets magical powers and becomes a superhero, is totally up our alley and so we were super excited to take a look. Click below to check out a preview and find out more.
It has been officially confirmed that The Walking Dead’s fourth episode of their seventh season, “Service”, airing on November 13th, 2016, will be extended to 85 minutes. IMDB lists the synopsis as:
The remaining members of the group try to keep it together in Alexandria. They receive a sobering visit.
So, it’s safe to say this will be Neegan’s big introduction to the residents of Alexandria, which we all could pretty safely assume would be a big to-do, but what could possibly be warranting a extra 15 minutes?!?! Some thing even bigger than we imagined must be going down.
What do you guys think is going to happen? TWD Comic book readers I’m looking to you, any insight? Hit up the comments and let us know your thoughts/theories/reactions.
We don’t give the CW’s Arrow nearly as much love as we should anymore. To be honest that mostly has to do with the fact that they don’t put the previous season of their shows on Netflix till the week before the new season drops, AND the fact that all their superhero shows are so entrenched in one another that you HAVE to watch them all and it gets pretty overwhelming. But that’s besides the point. Today we were giving some exciting new Arrow news involving an addition to the cast. Click below for more.
In the spirit of giving back, Titan Comics and Humble Bumble are teaming up to give back to BBC Children In Need, by introducing the Doctor Who Humble Comics Bundle. Click for more to find out

Hello, Carterettes! Small introduction to this post: an idea that I have had for a long time is to write a recurring blog post about things (films, books, comics, etc.) that are about kickass women like our favorite SSR Agent, Peggy Carter. Think of it as a recommendation for things that you may also like if you enjoy Marvel’s Agent Carter.
For my first commendation, I have chosen to feature the film Female Agents, based on a true story. Set in 1944, close to the end of WWII, in London, Lieutenant Pierre Desfontaines assigns his sister, Louise Desfontaines to convince three women to join her on a five-woman task force to rescue a British geologist from a German hospital. Louise and Pierre force a prostitute (Jeanne Faussier) that is imprisoned for murdering her pimp; an explosives expert (Gaëlle Lemenech) that misses action; and a former dancer and fiancé of Colonel Karl Heindrich (Suzy Desprez) using blackmail and unethical methods to fly to France and join the Italian agent already in the assignment. Are you intrigued yet?
Simple plot line intrigue is not the only reason you should watch this film. Whereas many war films tend to show the story from the male point of view, very few focus on the female. Female Agents follows the five women that are tasked with a mission that quickly escalated and changes. We see their fear, their anxiety, their tears and their heart. We watch them grow, watching them struggle and watching them become more than just fellow agents. This film is challenging and brutal in its realistic depiction of what these agents went through to keep their government’s secrets and accomplish their missions. It shows us a time that, although we don’t want to remember, we should never forget for fear of repeating ourselves.
The cinematography, they acting, the costumes, and the story all combine to create a film that is a must-see for so many reasons. Be warned, there is nudity (not sexual), violence and swearing (in other languages). The film is also mostly in French and subtitled, but that takes very little away from the story.
This Carter Commendation gets five stars. I do hope you will give it a watch.
Full disclosure, I’ve recently become OBSESSED with the dresses made by Hardley Dangerous. I originally bought one of their Strapless Cherrybomb dresses in the hopes of one day using it as Scarlett Overkill Cosplay. However when it arrived I immediately ordered another one in black with cap sleeves. All the orders are handmade from when you order them. The craftsmanship is amazing, and the packaging is adorable. And every interaction I’ve had with the shop owners Claire and Chase has been nothing but wonderful.
I can not even begin to count how many compliments I got when I wore the dress to our office holiday party. Seriously, go check them out.
