From Ursula to Jon Snow: our favorite cosplay of Comic-Con 2014

Tens of thousands of people descend on San Diego for Comic-Con each year, making it the perfect place for cosplayers to show off some of their best outfits.

Haruki Murakami has time and again proven himself as one of today's fiction greats, effortlessly jumping between the subtle and real and the strange and surreal over the course of novels and even chapters.

Returning to 'Sin City': a chat with Frank Miller

Ever the controversial figure, Frank Miller is nevertheless one of the greats. As one of many notable comics creators who shot to prominence in the 1980s and ‘90s, Miller’s work on such characters as Batman and Daredevil helped define a generation of comic readers. But he’s seen his share of deserved criticism over the course of his career — graphic novels like Sin City and 300, while stylish and influential, have been derided for their...

John Oliver, Buzz Aldrin, and Patrick Stewart plead for rescue of lost Russian space-geckos

There are a lot of international crises at the moment, but no one that can bring humanity together like the story of Russia' s gecko sex experiment that became lost in space. The experiment was supposed to monitor the sex lives of geckos inside a satellite, but last week Russia was reported to have lost contact with it — leaving the geckos adrift. On his show this weekend, John Oliver took a break from some of the more serious subjects that he...
