Supernatural Talk at Sequential Tart
There are no new Supernatural Talks this season (wah!), but you can catch up on our season's worth of columns on the Sequential Tart message boards. Our columns started after the Christmas break, so you'll notice that episodes 1-10 are all in one entry before we go to episode-by-episode breakdowns.

You'll also find links to Supernatural-related articles that I've written this season, as well as past Supernatural coverage in Sequential Tart.

The Brinkley Girls
I had the opportunity to review The Brinkley Girls, edited by Trina Robbins. A sumptuous collection of the early 20th century serials and cartoons of Nell Brinkley, the book is well worth reading and gawking at!
