With Walt Disney having originally made his name on innovation in animation, it’s perhaps no surprise that the company he left behind has continued to break ground in this field, having produced some of the most breathtaking 3D CGI movies... 

Book review: Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon

Book review: Take Back The Skies  by Lucy Saxon
Launching an ambitious series of books as a first-time writer is never easy, especially in today’s world where the written word spreads around quicker than ever. You only have to look at the success of something like Fifty Shades Of Grey which was developed from Twilight fan fiction to see how times have changed in the world of literature.

Review: Anatomy of Steampunk The Fashion of Victorian Futurism

Review: Anatomy of Steampunk The Fashion of Victorian Futurism
“The tyranny of the body type is o’erthrown, something that my way cooler and hipper wife pointed out to me. Whereas Cosplay 1.0, happily percolating and gestating away in it’s Asian Urgrund, was predicated on its practitioners being insanely cute, five-foot-nothing, ninety-five-pound Japanese teenage girls, working out their manga fixations in some public park in Tokyo, steampunk lays down no such strictures. Everybody looks good...

Lantern City’s “RISE” a Steampunk Illustrated Novel to Get Release at Comic Con
The Steampunk genre is one that generally sits quietly to one side, occasionally being called over for a short time only to retreat back to the corner again. There’s a huge fanbase for everything Steampunk, there are even dedicated conventions. There are a lot of fantastic Steampunk games, movies and books out there but they’ve never started any huge trends. That might be about to change. Lantern City is a project that was announced...
