AWP Conference 2015

Imagine a place filled with like-minded individuals, all in love with literature and writing, surrounded by a football field-sized fair with books, publishers, journals and more books.

Comic Book Adaptations: My Thoughts P...

Here’s part 2 of my review. SPOILERS may follow. “The Flash” 2014-present, CW One of the newest adaptations and a spin off from “Arrow,”  “The Flash,” has been received well by audiences. It stars Grant Gustin (“Glee,” 2011-13) as the titular character Barry Allen. Gustin does an amazing job with his portrayal. He adds just the […]
