Titans Trailer Disappointment

20 July 2018 Jackie 0

I get that DC Comics has this whole dark and gritty cinematic universe, but the trailer for Titans is really disappointing. My boys love the Titans; any Titans comics they see, they want; they love everything that has been released so far. When they heard they were getting a live […]

5 March 2018 Jackie 0

I want more dragon romances! The werewolves and werecats are nice, but they’ve flooded the market and it can be hard to find other shifters.
