Pagan News Beagle: Airy Monday, May 1 2017

Two of the most famous occultists in comics clash. A look at how Resident Evil 7: Biohazard fits within the horror franchise it belongs to. And Neil Gaiman discusses what might be his next book. It's Airy Monday, our segment on magic and religion in popular culture! All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Alan Moore and Grant Morrison are both some of the most respected names in the modern comic industry. They're also both known for their opinionated, stubborn personalities, so perhaps it should come as no surprise they clash. But because they're also both occultists, their methods of clashing, if this article is to be believed, are quite unusual.

Does modern popular culture get you down? Do you feel overwhelmed by visions of dystopian or post-apocalyptic futures? Then you might find something to connect with in this "call to arms" by sci-fi writer Kameron Hurley, calling for a more optimistic future.

A couple months ago, the newest entry in the long-running Resident Evil video game series was released to critical acclaim. The game notably took a different approach from recent entries in the series while also trying to reconnect to the series' horrific roots. But how exactly does it's story connect to prior games? The Verge takes a look.

After years in the making, the cult classic animated TV series Samurai Jack returned earlier this year. A story about a Japanese warrior who is transported to a dystopian future by his archnemesis the demon Aku, Samurai Jack has been eagerly anticipated since a revival was announced. But does it hold up? io9's James Whitbrook gives his opinion.

Neil Gaiman is one of modern fantasy's most beloved writers, known for such works as American Gods, Sandman, and Coraline. Now, with American Gods debuting as a television series many are wondering what's up for the author. Apparently, a sequel to Neverwhere.

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.
