For many years, the theme of the crossover between characters of separate fiction series has been witnessed by audiences in a number of entertainment mediums: comic books, video games, film, television, etc. Sometimes, the crossover is the subject of a specific television series episode (like say the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode of Family Guy for example) or even a specific issue of a comic book series. Additionally, history has witnessed the existence of kind of comic book series where each issue of such finds the series' protagonist interacting with guest characters of another fiction series. Think back to comic book series like DC Comics' The Brave and the Bold (particulary the first series volume after issue 50) and Marvel Comics' Spider-Man Team-Up as well as IDW Publishing's Powerpuff Girls Super Smash-Up (where Powerpuff Girls encounter protagonists of a number of other Cartoon Network original series). And if you are a fan old-school Scooby-Doo, you probably are familiar with The New Scooby-Doo Movies, which features Scooby and the Mystery Machine gang interacting with guest characters each episode.

In the Fall 2015, the DC Universe super-heroine Kara Zor-El, the most popular DC character to go by the moniker of Supergirl, was granted her chance to shine as a solo protagonist on the small screen as Supergirl premiered, and although it is only in its first season, it manages to be a huge Nielsen rating victor and many sci-fi fans in the west (even those who are not regular basis comic book readers) seem to can't get enough of the super-heroine herself. In case you never heard of Kara Zor-El, the description of her life story is simply: she is a natural blonde beauty from planet Krypton who possesses the same powers and strength as her cousin Kal-El (also known as "Clark Kent" and "Superman") and seeks to find her place on Earth.

Back in the 1990s in a time before the 1992 Japanese animated series landmark Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon came to the North American airwaves, America-based screen media studios renaissance-Atlantic Entertainment and Toon Makers joined forces to develop an American live-action/animation hybrid re-interpretation of Japanese comic book writer and illustrator Naoko Takeuchi's famous superheroine saga with the intention likely to feature alternate secret identity versions of the Sailor Senshi as the team was intended to be portrayed as a multi-racial superheroine squad like what each incarnation of Power Rangers is usually focused on. However, although a pilot was filmed along with a music video-tie in, neither the pilot was officially released, nor did the planned American T.V. series take on the Sailor Moon saga get launched.

Days ago, the saga of the Universal Studios science-fiction lore known as "Heroes" made a comeback with the launch of a miniseries titled " Heroes Reborn". While I never watched the original Heroes series, I actually felt a sense of joy in witnessing the return of a saga full with adventure and action beyond the limits of the realistic as rise science-fiction and fantasy on North American continues to grow, and if you are a fan of the previous Heroes, I am sure a lot of you are happy to witness the revival.

I notice that there are a number of pop culture media franchises (and sub-franchises) that manage to have their own special holidays established to celebrate their respective fandoms, whether it be a national holiday or even international one. To give examples, there is Star Trek Day (now officially an April 5th international holiday), Batman Day (debated by some to always be May 1st despite date variation by year), Superman Day (a June 12th holiday), Spider-Man Day (an August 1st holiday), and now there is International Sailor Moon Day (whose first annual day will be on August 15, 2015). Now you are probably wondering, "what can we do to celebrate the holiday that celebrates the fandom we are a part of?". Well, there are usually a number of options we can do to celebrate. So let's take time to explore each option on how to celebrate. Read more...

"Of my friend, I can only say this. Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human." 635606378477035481-FNPBrd-03-26-2013-NewsPress-1-A002-2013-03-25-IMG-AP090426037389.jpg-4-1-S73M5EJ3-L200541173-IMG-AP090426037389.jpg-4-1-S73M5EJ3 Those words are from the funeral of Mr. Spock in the movie Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn. Leonard Nimoy played the character of Mr. Spock from1965 (when he appeared in the rejected Star Trek pilot "The Cage") until 1969. He also played the character in eight feature films. Nimoy directed Star Trek 3 " The Search For Spock", and did a credible job (Siskel and Ebert agreed that Nimoy was a much better director than fellow Star Trek alumni William Shatner's , directorial work on Star Trek 5 "The Final Frontier"). TV Guide has even named Mr. Spock as one of the 50 greatest TV characters of all time. The character is universally recognizable. Nimoy earned three Emmy nominations for his work on Star Trek. Nimoy even came up with several of Mr. Spock's affectations himself. For instance, Nimoy originated the "Vulcan salute". Nimoy created this based on his childhood memories of the way that the Jewish Priests used to hold their hand when giving the blessing, "May the Lord bless and keep you and may the Lord cause his countenance to shine upon you. May the Lord be gracious unto you and grant you peace". Read more...

Leonard-Nimoy-Today, fans of science fiction, pop culture and theater in general have lost a dear friend. Leonard Nimoy, best known for his portrayal as Mr. Spock in the Star Trek TV series and films, has passed away at the age of 83. While we all fell in love with him as the half-human, half Vulcan second-in-command of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Mr. Nimoy had many other artistic pursuits in his life, such as writing, music, photography and directing (not many people are aware he directed 1987's Three Men And A Baby). Acting since the age of 8, Nimoy had a huge body of acting work including classic horror films like Them!, Zombies in the Stratosphere and The Brain Eaters, and appearances on television shows like Dragnet, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Twilight Zone, Perry Mason, Outer Limits, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and more recently in shows like Fringe, Simpsons, Futurama and Big Bang Theory. And let's not forget his return as Spock in the J.J. Abrams reboot of the Star Trek film franchise! Read more...
