Sunday Mise en Place (Feb. 12 to 18, ‘018)

Welcome back to the Mise en Place, hope everyone is had a great week. For me, it was one of life’s tougher weeks, it didn’t entirely go how I hoped it would. And, the stress of it all seems ready to break us down. But, all I can do is keep my head down and…

Sunday Mise en Place (Feb. 5 to 11, ‘018)

Welcome back to the Mise en Place on this first Sunday of the 2018 Winter Olympics. I am a big Olympics fan, especially the winter events mostly because of hockey. I’m still choked that there is no NHL players at the Olympics and as such will be boycotting watching any NHL over the next few…

everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too by Jomny Sun

This book has been everywhere in Canada. It is impossible to enter a bookstore and ignore the adorable little alien on the cover. Making waves in book circles and comic circles, it was only a matter of time before I grabbed a copy for myself to see what all the hype was about. Everyone’s a…

Matt Groening’s Disenchantment: Everything We Know So Far

Maybe it is just me but, I couldn’t be more excited for Matt Groening’s newest adult animated series, Disenchantment. In fact, it did make a list I wrote up for Bubbleblabber about the top ten most anticipated shows of 2018. Groening has a shining record of success with a couple of shows you may have…

Happiest of Sundays to all of you. Welcome back to the Mise en Place, a weekly (and most consistant) feature found on the Green Onion Blog. Always my home base, the M.e.P. is where you can find what is happening in my world. I often use this as my chance to recap the week, prepare…

Parenting Stew: Saturday Morning Cartoons

There must not be a single parent in history that hasn’t uttered the cliché phrase “back in my day,” but it is too true.  The idea of my parents living in a world without television is foreign, an impossibility, then I think back to when I didn’t even own a computer.  Today, my children can…

Sunday Mise en Place (Jan. 15 to 21, ‘018)

What is happening? This month is flying by too fast. Is this what all of 2018 is going to be like? I have been filling up with so much writing work that I have been swamped and falling behind with my own blogging. I swear I will get back on track sooner than later, I…

Deconstructed: World’s Finest Comics #302

I cannot stand Ben Affleck as Batman! Sorry, I need to just say it once in a while, especially since he all bit ruined the new Justice League preview. Like, I am all “wow, Aqua Man looks cool. Ahh, Flash is rad. Ooh, they look good.” And then there’s emo Affleck trying way to hard…
