Across the Spiderverse
This is my favorite movie of the summer so far.
deals with both his relationship to his parents and juggling his double
life as his universe's Spider-Man. And Gwen, who's very much the
co-lead of this movie, has to deal with a far more adversarial
relationship with her father, also a police captain.
Then there's the Spot. A seeming joke character who steadily gets more and more dangerous in the background.
The foreground deals with a whole lot of Spider people trying to keep their dimensions from collapsing.
movie has so many different art styles from punk, to washed out
impressionist, to overly muscular 90's comic art. It looks like nothing
out there and is just thrilling to behold.
Highest possible recommendation.
Seal of the Worm by Adrian Tchaikovsky
The Wasps have won. But their empress knows she wrecked the world to do it. And she'll wreck it worse to "fix" it.
The Beetles in exile and their Ant allies must martial their forces under the command of the Ants brilliant and cruel Tactician.
under their feet, the horrid evil of the Worm and its many humanoid
"segments" rises. And Cheerwell and her banished friends must fight them with their aptitude and magic negated.
The over world's chances of beating back the Worm's advance is fleeting.
not going to spoil a horrid plot element in this. But let's just say
that I will be shocked if it's kept "as is" in any adaptions to other
media. Really, really unsettling.
But also a satisfying conclusion to the Shadows of the Apt series.
