August was pretty quiet given it’s summer and the month after all the announcements at San Diego Comic-Con. As always, I continued every week recapping Big Hero 6: The Series, and revisiting Gargoyles, for Multiversity Comics, which you can read at those links.
I was back on the rota for the column I curate, We Want Comics, taking a look at ten unproduced film projects that could become graphic novels instead:

I’ve also been enjoying Matt Groening’s new show, Disenchantment, and finished watching Trollhunters:
I think I’ve spent most of my month playing Detroit: Become Human, which is a really addictive game due to all the storyline avenues you can explore, although I was a little saddened my plan to craft an android version of Heat didn’t pay off in my playthroughs. I’ve also been revisiting Life is Strange due to the next game, picking up more Platinum PS4 Trophies along the way.
