Pagan News Beagle: Airy Monday, February 13 2017

A list of some favorite romantic movies for Valentine's Day. Another fantasy novel series gets adapted to television. And a look at a fantasy comic that tackles both the familiar and the strange. It's Airy Monday, our news segment about magic and religion in popular culture! All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Do you like to watch chick flicks for Valentine's Day? What are some of your favorite romantic movies? At Patheos, Voodoo writer Lilith Dorsey offers a couple suggestions of her own.

What makes us human? And how do we decide who isn't? The Village Voice tackles these and other tough questions while reflecting upon the popular new HBO series, Westworld, based on the cult Michael Crichton film.

In the wake of the popular adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books (aka Game of Thrones) many more books have been getting a look at from TV networks looking for the next big hit. Next on the list? Ken Liu's Dandelion Dynasty series, inspired by East Asian history.

Some people resent the "intrusion" of politics into art. But in fact most art is political to some degree or another and it is often the works that are cross-examined that are remembered the longest. The Mary Sue shares the experience of Amelia Cook, who started up a website for examining anime from a feminist viewpoint.

The comics industry is undeniably ruled by titans like Marvel and DC Comics, which print monthly titles about superheroes in massive shared universes. But some comic settings are newer and more focused in scope. Comics Alliance takes a look at the making of Birthright, a new fantasy comic.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
