What We're Looking At

Kevin M. Wilson's limited Back to the Future: Part II lithograph sold out immediately from Vice Press – but there's no harm in looking.

What We're Talking About

Still nothing concrete on that new Stargate series, but reading the industry entrails has turned up the interesting nugget that it might not be made for Amazon Prime Video after all.

HBO’s Bene Gesserit prequel series Dune: The Sisterhood adds The Bridge‘s Sarah-Sofie Boussnina and 4 others to the cast.

Still reeling from 'The Power of the Doctor'? Keep reeling as the first teaser for 2023's Doctor Who 60th Anniversary promises a wild ride.

Damon Lindelof, co-writer of Star Trek Into Darkness and HBO's Watchmen series, is reportedly working on a secretive Star Wars movie.

Don't Panic Games has form when it comes to adapting anime for the table-top, but Cowboy Bebop - The Roleplaying Game (with Italian publishers Mana Project Studio) is their first RPG and it's sailed waaaaay over its initial funding goal on Kickstarter.

Finally, for roleplayers with an interest in the world's most popular TTRPG, our friends at NeverEnding are crowdfunding a giant grimoire of NPCs for Dungeons & Dragons 5E. Anansi's Tapestry of Lives brings the supporting cast to life so that you don't have to – complete with monologues from the Critical Role gang.

What We're Watching

Directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson (The Endless, Moon Knight) go hunting for Fortean happenings in Something in the Dirt.

What We're Buying*

*These aren't sponsored, we don't get a cut, and nobody sends us freebies. It's just some cool stuff we're lusting over hard.

It’s been a Hoth minute since a collab was as obvious as the DC Shoes x Star Wars snowboarding collection. The men’s insulated jacket has a discreet Star Wars print and an OOT lining.

Priced at $249.95 US or £200 UK.

How many autobiographies does one man need? William Shatner, it’s fair to say, has lived a life and this latest volume, Boldly Go: Reflections on a Life of Awe and Wonder, covers the Kirk icon’s recent trip into space.
