I Recently Finished Reading: Wicked

I decided to pick this up for two reasons. First is that I've been wanting to go back through Baum's original Oz books and figured that reading a modern take on the world would be interesting.

Every time I watch one (or re-watch one) I write up a post with my thoughts. I try to be spoiler free, but the older the movie, the less careful I … Continue reading Comic Book Movie Rewatch: Justice League
