Are Magazines Still “In”?

SAM_0439Am I the only person who still purchases magazines even though the information can still be found on the internet month’s before the magazine comes out? I don’t think so, otherwise they all would not be published. (I hope I’m not starting something that will spell the doom of published magazines).

I love SFX and SciFiNow and occasionally I will purchase Syfy, but the first two beat the third hands down. They cover not only scifi, but comics, books, collectibles, horror, and a little bit of everything else. ScifiNow even has a great retro section where they go back a few decades and look at all the great things that happened in the genres during a particular year.

These are still my favorite magazines, but I peruse others every once in a while. What magazines do you still read, if any. Having a hard time getting them? Let us help! We have access to magazines through Diamond and other distributors. We currently carry Star Wars Insider, Star Trek, Mad Magazine, Rue Morgue, Screem, Monsters of Film Land, Fangoria, Locus, and a few others.

Catching up on GOTHAM

Some mornings here at the shop are slow enough to allow me to catch up on my shows, such as GOTHAM. I didn’t realize how far behind I had fallen. I don’t know about everyone else but I really love this show. I don’t know all that much beyond the general history of Batman, but even I can spot a few cool points in this show. In fact, I am familiar with the “Court of Owls” story from recent comics, and I swear that I heard hooting owls towards the end of “The Mask” episode. Right? And in “Lovecraft,” when Bullock calls Alfred a valet, Alfred replies, “I’m the Butler.” It sounded so much like, “I’m the Batman,” to me.


This show has me sometimes wanting to cry like when the entire precinct walks out on Gordon, then cheering when Montoya and Allen come screaming up to rescue him. Then to see Alfred put the hurt on someone was awesome! And I’m really digging the back and forth between Fish, Falcone, Maroni, and Cobblepot. Gotham has really got me hooked.

At least, for now. I haven’t caught up on my other shows. It may change. I’ve heard a lot of good things about FLASH, but have only seen the first two episodes. So, what shows are you watching? And what is it about that show that has you hooked? You’ve seen mine, now show me yours!
