It's time to tackle whitewashing, the glut of streaming services, and toxic fandom head-on (but in a lighthearted way)! As we applaud the success of Crazy Rich Asians, we raise an eyebrow to the DC Universe debut and reflect upon the uproar surrounding the Battlestar Galactica reboot and an entitled audience. Other stories this month include a look at the premise of NBC's Manifest, speculation on what the Monument Valley animated movie in development will look like, and the often-overlooked...

After San Diego Comic Con, our Star Wars panelists have had the chance to think about the many book and television announcements from the galaxy far, far away.

Since the time we recorded this episode we’ve also seen a new trailer for Star Wars Resistance, the Sequel Trilogy-era animated series coming this October. Shooting has started on Episode IX,...

Solo has come and gone, and Blaster Canon is back to cover Star Wars tie-in novels and discuss what — if anything — went wrong with Solo’s marketing and reception. In the world of books we review Last Shot by Daniel José Older and Most Wanted by Rae Carson, both of which flesh out characters from the standalone film.
