Orisa and Efi!

Hello everyone, here’s a video I made on the newest characters on Blizzard’s online multiplayer FPS game, Overwatch and just what makes them so good.

Here’s the original video of Overwatch Developer Jeff Kaplan talking about Orisa and how she came to be.

And you can find the Overwatch Victory Theme remix by IncredFX Music.

And hey, check out this cool article I came across while doing some googling from Paste Magazine on just why Orisa is accidentally an Afrofuturist Icon.

Brain Food – Episode 62

Hello everyone, it’s time for another episode of Brain Food!

And in today’s episode, I review Issue #10 of the Overwatch comic, Reflections, most well known for finally revealing just who in the cast is gay.

Hint, it’s Tracer.

You can download the comic at Blizzard’s website here.

And also please check out and support TeknoAxe, the amazing artist who makes the music for free for everyone to use and that I use in my videos.

Finger Waving & Tone Policing – A Nick Spencer Story

Hello everyone, in this video I take a look at Captain America: Sam Wilson Issue #17, and the complete and utter failure to understand what social justice activism that Nick Spencer satirizes.

Since, you know, satire is supposed to punch up, not down.

I’d also recommend people check out this article by Gavia Baker-Whitelaw on the comic as it has some additional insights into just how badly Nick Spencer screwed up and why.

Enjoy!

Brain Food – Episode 60

Hello everyone, and in this 60th episode, I review the hard sci-fi book by Doug Sharp called Channel Zilch.

While overall a good, fun story, it’s undercut by an unfortunate case of yellow fever/geek dream fulfillment in one of its main characters.

Enjoy!
