‘Detective Comics #1,027’ (2020) is a celebration of style, but of little substance

For almost $10, though, the stories are sadly hit or miss, with some incredible highs and some disappointing lows.


Professor Malcolm Turvey keeps film department from yelling ‘cut’

Despite the massive challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption to learning at Tufts, Professor Malcolm Turvey, Director of the Film and Media Studies Program, is confident that some degree of normalcy will prevail.


Season 2 of ‘The Boys’ starts off with a bang

Amazon Prime’s “The Boys” (2019–) might be the most complicated yet simple show on television. The show is intricately plotted, yet straightforward and digestible. The show is fantastical and grounded, played straight and comically, all in a healthy balance. Balance is the operative term for the first three episodes of the series’ second season, which […]


From the Arts Editors: Our quarantine consumption

To be more deliberate with my time and help diversify my literary world, I committed to only reading authors of color during my quarantine time and throughout 2020. I first read April Sinclair’s “Coffee Will Make You Black” (1994) and “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” (1965). Two very different books, but both so important to […]


Hidden Panels: ‘Venom’

Living in the age of the coronavirus can be tricky and, despite it all, we at The Tufts Daily remain dedicated to bringing you content that will inform and entertain you during this turbulent time. With that in mind, I’m proud to announce the return of my first-year passion project, “Hidden Panels: […]


‘I Am Not Okay With This’ doesn’t mix right elements in season 1

It would not be unfair to say that Netflix miniseries “I Am Not Okay With This” (2020–) is a cultural ley line, the convergence of two different ideas at once that leads to a product drawn heavily from its component parts, but often in conflicting ways. Released on Feb. 26 with directing and producing talent […]


Hidden Panels: ‘Hawkeye’ Issue 1

“Really?” I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Your last piece of the year is going to be about the Avenger who fights evil with a bow and arrow?” To answer your question, yes, I am. After a semester of epic tales, high-brow social commentary and an above average amount of Batman books, I figured […]


Hidden Panels: ‘New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies’

How far would you be willing to go to save the world? What would you be willing to sacrifice? Money? Time? Sanity? Friendships? Your morals? Most importantly, though, what happens when Earth’s mightiest heroes confront these questions? Such is the content of “New Avengers Vol. 1: Everything Dies” (2013) from Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting. […]


Hidden Panels: The Dark Knight Returns Issue 3

“It ends tonight, Joker.” These are grim words that herald the beginning of the last battle between Batman and his greatest nemesis. This week, we’re taking a look at a classic, an issue of the legendary series, “The Dark Knight Returns” — specifically, issue 3, “Hunt The Dark Knight,” written and drawn by Frank Miller with Klaus […]


Hidden Panels: ‘Hellboy Omnibus Volume 1: Seed of Destruction’

OK, I’m going to level with you all: I try not to base my weekly spotlight on what comic book movies are coming out this week. Usually I try and keep my reviews to books I think you should read on their own merits … but some weeks I indulge myself, and this is one […]
