Author Archives: Forever Fangirl, Heather Kenealy

Heather Kenealy is a screenwriter working at a comic shop to support her superhero habit. She's mostly Marvel, but damn, the new DCU sunk it's bat-claws into her! Between getting paid in X-Men issues and obsessively playing Marvel: Avenger Alliance on Facebook, Heather's had time to contribute to a short story anthology to support literacy, as well as manage to work on a couple of comics, including The Seekers for MTV Geek and Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment, a gig she got by winning a contest to write Stan Lee's next graphic novel. It's about time too because this "starving artist" thing is for the birds.

Forever Fangirl: Conquistadores from Beyond! The Comic Book

Back in 1939, twenty-year old soldier, Nicholas Kenealy, stationed at Fort MacArthur, sent in a short sci fi tale to his favorite magazine Thrilling Wonder Stories. It was not long, five pages or so, a tongue-in-cheek telling of a brave space crew’s encounter with three legged aliens on a world with a chlorine based atmosphere. […]

Forever Fangirl: Fraction’s FF #1? Fantastic!

Continuing the ‘not a reboot’ reboot that is Marvel NOW!, the first issue of FF, came out Wednesday, and I have to admit to mixed feelings. For those of you not familiar with FF, the titular initials stand for Future Foundation, which is essentially  a school for the gifted, the disenfranchised, and the chosen students […]

Forever Fangirl: How Great is Great Pacific

There is a lot of stuff I hate. I’m old. I’m cranky. I’m jealous and bitter about half the garbage I see getting published these days. But one of the things I hate more than anything is to be preached to under the guise of entertainment. Don’t use popular songs to tell me about abused […]

Forever Fangirl: Two for One! The Rise of Dark Cyclophoenix!

I’m going to preface this with a story.  Fifteen years ago, my roommate Steve and I were watching The Devil’s Advocate, starring Keanu Reeves as a lawyer who is givent he opportunity to sell his soul literally for success. There’s a scene in there where his wife, played by Charlize Theron, kills herself while our […]

Forever Fangirl: Blast off with the Rocketeer!

When I was a Freshman in college, there were these two seniors, Danny and Paul, that I only knew in passing, but they were always talking about this film project they were going to do, or wanted to do, or were in development hell with. Honestly, I don’t remember that was way way long ago […]

Forever Fangirl: And All the Comic Geeks Will Look Up and Ask “Should I Buy ‘Rorschach?’”

And I’ll look down and whisper “No.” Yeah, sorry that was just waaaaaay too easy.  Look, here’s the deal, when I reviewed the first of the Before Watchmen books here, I made no bones about the fact that I was buying DC’s latest money grab specifically as a petty “fuck you” to that curmudgeonly hypocrite, […]

Forever Fangirl: Well, At Least It’s Not Another Wolverine Book

I’m not a huge fan of Gambit, I’m going to just put it out there right now and accept all your dirty judgmental looks. How dare I not love the ragin’ cajun with his slick charm and bad boy awesomeness? Well, quite frankly, I find him to be one note and boring, and unless the […]
