So, my nieces have really gotten into anime, lately. Their favorites are My Hero Academia, InuYasha, and Tokyo Ghoul.
Since I’ve been a bit under the weather (thanks, Trigeminal Neuralgia flare), I thought we deserved a fun themed night, and something relatively easy for me to do, given how awful I feel.
I think you guys know that I love Rocky Horror Picture Show, based on my post in August (or you can watch the video here), so when my alma mater announced the performance of Rocky Horror the first weekend in October, it immediately became priority on my schedule.
I was recently contacted to review Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey, a comic anthology retelling mythological stories, many reimagined in new, more modern ways. I was sent a digital copy for review, along with a press kit of images I can use for my review, and a link to their Kickstarter.
The creator and editor, Caleb Palmquist, really pulled together an amazing team of writers and artists to create something special with this book. Modern Mythology: The Hero’s Journey is a 160+ page softcover book with seventeen stories created by 29 talented individuals. In addition to all of this amazingness, there are also a collection of pin ups from other independent comic book artists.
This has been a long awaited tale, for many. One of my greatest adventures from a little over three years ago.

I’ve had a love for the Rocky Horror Picture Show for longer than I can recall. There’s something about that movie that brings me joy and makes me think of good times with friends: either watching the movie together, or seeing it performed at our local college and everyone dressing up and having a blast. This movie is special to me.
Four years ago, I was lucky enough to meet Barry Bostwick (aka Brad Majors), and he was an ABSOLUTELY funny and sweet guy.
So imagine my joy, and a bit of surprise, when I learned we were having a local RHPS event, held at Alexander’s at the Factort in Farmington, MO?
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED, MY FRIENDS!
It’s no secret: I was OBSESSED with Batman: White Knight. I wrote about how brilliant it was, which Sean Murphy was kind enough to share:
Last weekend, we decided to go check out a shop I’ve wanted to visit in St. Charles, MO. I’ve followed their page on Facebook for a little while and saw a sale and figured it was the perfect excuse to make the drive.
