Rufus Marigold is an extremely nervous guy. The ring of a telephone causes him to freeze in terror. Encountering a friend on the street is a crippling minefield of small talk. Giving a presentation at work is an impossible task that must be avoided by any means possible. Everyday life for Rufus is a harrowing obstacle course of anxiety, self-doubt, and avoidance. If any of this sounds familiar, you, like the author of Rufus Marigold, Ross Murray, likely have some experience with anxiety. And in the wake of the COVID pandemic, Rufus Marigold is more relatable than ever.

What If…? is a wonderfully fun series on Disney+ that examines the possibilities of life in the Marvel universe, how every choice impacts the outcomes we’ve come to know, and how the characters we love might be different in some way. Is this series appropriate for kids similar in age to my own? As my own kids are ages 7 and 9, the answer is probably not, especially since What If…? is rated as TV-14. Some ratings don’t always have to be adhered to so strictly, but in this case, I would avoid the series for parents with kids near my own kids’ ages.

This strange, but colorful, neo-noir adventure is reminiscent of L.A. Confidential. A columnist for a local gossip rag acts as our guide through a sordid and unfamiliar world, reporting on all the gory details of who’s getting arrested and who’s getting killed by whom—and how. Our story’s beginning even has the same catalyst as L.A. Confidential: the sudden arrest of the city’s major crime boss and the subsequent power vacuum it leaves in the criminal underworld.

Dark Horse Comics’ Last Flight Out #3 continues the tale of planetwide apocalypse and humanity’s flight from Earth. This well-written and fantastically drawn story adds new depth to the established characters while introducing new ones.

Back in the mid-1990s, TV show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine visited the “evil” Mirror Universe on several occasions. Since then, the Universe has shown up in the prequel TV shows, Enterprise and Discovery. We never saw a Next Generation version on screen. In 2017, IDW created a comic book limited series focused on who these characters would be.

Everybody has seen numerous retellings of Spider-Man’s origin from Amazing Fantasy #15 - from comics, to cartoons, to movies. Interestingly enough, the story from Amazing Spider-Man #1 in 1963, in which Spidey meets the Fantastic Four, has been told many times, as well. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby retold the story in the first Fantasic Four annual. Tom Defalco did a version of it as did John Byrne and later Dan Slott. The interesting thing about this story is that, unlike the origin, it can be told from a different perspective without taking away what is inherent to what came before. This is the basis for Marvel Action Classics #4.
