Comic News Round-up!

After a ridiculously long wait we finally get a glimpse of Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman! While her outfit looks a bit impractical, Gal Gadot looks badass! It’s great to see Wonder Woman, an important part of the DC holy trinity, finally being brought into the modern movies. While we have the utmost faith in Gadot, here’s hoping they dont fuck it up…

We also got a mega huge jam packed image for Age Of Ultron. There’s a lot of things happening in this image; mainly a whole load of fists in the air. And Iron Man blasting that dude in the face. There are some oldies and some newbies (Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Vision) scattered amongst the ultron bots, and we are EXCITED.

Rat Queens has reached no.1 in comics on the New York Times Best-seller List. Heck yeah! Rat Queens is a darkly comedic medieval fantasy, centred around the Elven Mage, Hannah, Dwarven Warrior, Violet, Athiest Human Cleric, Dee, and the Halfing thief, Betty. It’s basically just four girls kicking ass while being sassy and sarcastic. It’s well worth checking out.

Jerome Opena and Dan White are penning a graphic novel, “Avengers: Rage Of Ultron”, scheduled for release in April 2015. While it’ll be a stand alone graphic novel, it will still have a huge impact on the continuity of the Ultron story.

Warner Brothers announced two new animated movies for next year- ‘Batman vs Robin’ and ‘Justice League: Gods of Monsters’. Batman vs Robin will follow Scott Snyder’s ‘Batman’ storyline and Justice Leagge: Gods of Monsters will be all original and written and directed by Bruce Timm

Cecilia and the Satellite- Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

If there’s anything more heart warming than a song written by Andrew McMahon then I haven’t heard it yet. Like with all his previous musical endeavours this new song is a great slice of feel good pop with piano riffs so familiar it transports you back to the days of sitting out in the sun with friends listening to ‘Everything In Transit’. Now working under the name Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, Andrew storms back into our lives in a beautiful way, providing just three minutes and 43 seconds of happiness in this shitty old country we’re stuck in.

For a lot of us involved in the Something Corporate/ Jack’s Mannequins scene, we were there for all the shit that Andrew had to go through, namely finding out he had leukemia on the same day he finished Everything In Transit, and even now after all this time he still stands as a glimmer of hope in the dark. Just like back then, he is positive and happy. He built his life back up when everything crashed down around him and hopefully with this new album he can bring the same kind of hope to a new generation of kids that he gave us back then.

A very important message from josiephone about the right for a woman to choose what happens to her body.
Life is sacred, and in the tough world we live in today is saving a life not as important as creating one? Possibly more so?
If choice is something you believe to be a human right, save the 27th of September in your calender. Help the Irish Government see the truth of what “human rights” means. 

josiephone:

Okay guys, I’m going to get serious for a minute. If you’re not in Ireland at the moment, you may not know about the situation regarding the laws on abortion. It is completely illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, fatal foetal abnormality, and other such things. Women have died in this country because inability to have an abortion put strain on their health. A woman who wasn’t even Irish begged for an abortion because her child was about to die in the womb. The complications arising from her case resulted in her contracting septicaemia, organ failure, and tragically dying. In 1992, the X Case took place, involving a 14-year-old girl, knowns only as x, who became pregnant after being raped. Instead of offering help to the girl, who because suicidal, they prevented her from travelling out of the country for an abortion.Any Irish woman* who needs an abortion has to travel to the UK, which means if you don’t have the money, you’re out of luck. What does the Irish Government have to say about this?Well, recently the UN confronted the Government about our abortion laws, pointing out that we were breaking Human Rights laws, and that the Government treated Irish women* like vessels.Joan Burton, the Tánaiste, said that there will be no referendum on abortion in this Government’s lifetime. They’re literally saying that they don’t care enough to rectify Human Rights breaches.I am NOT a vessel, and neither are you. Make your voice heard. Come to the March for Choice on the 27th of September in Dublin. Never give up, never stay quiet.

Slam Dunk (Leeds University) Review

New to Slam Dunk, we weren’t exactly sure what to expect. With our background in outdoor festivals imprinted on our minds as well as being used to tiny college campuses we weren’t sure how it was all going to play out. But turns out Leeds University was huge, who knew? It even had a shop. Lap of luxury.

Despite the icky weather spirits were high and the entrance queues moved nice and quickly. The range of merch was bountiful and there was enough space in the merch room to shuffle about and look at everything, and it’s always nice to see the bands themselves man the merch tables.

We caught The Skints play before We The Kings, and having never heard them before we didn’t expect Reggae to come out from the stage. But the crowd welcomed them warmly and got really into it, dancing that little side to side shuffle. Although the sound issues made it hard to hear what they were saying, the crowd still sent them lots of love.

A late start and sound problems didn’t deter We The Kings from putting on an enjoyable show. Neck Deep and Real Friends are well worth a mention- both having put on a fun and intense show that the crowd got really into. The highlight of the whole thing though was The Ataris. They played songs mostly from So Long Astoria and it came with a rush of nostalgia and good memories. We can cross them off our bucket list now.

Despite the crowds being a little calmer than what we’d be used to, all in all Slam Dunk was fucking awesome and I highly recommend it for your festival list next year. We can’t wait!

See you there!!

For anyone who was there, or just wants to check out the scene, you can find photos from the shows here
