Immortal Ad Vitam: The Power to Procreate with the Gods

 

  Having cut my teeth on 70s comics, I can say that nothing that shows up in pop culture these days surprises me. 

Any weird esoteric or occult topic you can think of was yours for a quarter (or so) at your local spinner rack. There was a great innocence to it all as well - innocence being the lack of self-consciousness that took over the comics medium once it was banished from the newsstands.

Torchwood: (Suffer the) Children of Earth


Torchwood: Children of Earth is one of the most intense, jarring, unsettling and flat-out gutpunching television productions in recent memory. 

It's also one of the most important works of science fiction of our time. If you haven't watched it yet, you really should. Like, right away.
