“Wow” is the first thing I have to say about this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. While some sources claim that the annual gathering and celebrity panel showdown did not release anything new and spectacular, I happily dissent and beg to differ! Yes, there were some blunders. Guy Ritchie’s new King Arthur film looks, er, very dude-oriented I’ll say. The Killing Joke cartoon premiere is also less than great for women looking forward to the entry of DC’s Batgirl as a new female cartoon lead.

The first night of the Democratic National Convention was not without moments of controversy. Even in the absence of soon-to-be-ex Democratic National Committee chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, many Bernie or Bust people continue to be pissed off. However, the night was still full of poignant speeches by several of the most progressive leaders in the U.S. Here are a five of our favorite quotes from last night’s speeches: “America, we will rise.

Samantha Bee hilariously and viciously tears apart Fox News on the latest episode of Full Frontal. She rejoices in the resignation of Fox News' former chairman Roger Ailes, amid reports of sexual harassment from previous employees, Gretchen Carlson and Kellie Boyle. Carlson, who was the news network's former anchor, revealed that Ailes fired her after she refused to comply with his sexual advances. Then later, Boyle came forward and reported to investigators that Ailes harassed her earlier in her career.
  “Don’t talk to any strangers. Don’t accept anything from a stranger." These phrases are very common to many Ugandan children. Parents and guardians warn their children to keep away from strangers on safety grounds. Due to the constant repetition of these words, children have quite learned not to talk to strangers. Lucy [not her real name] is like any other child: she's playful, inquisitive, and she loves school.
  As a young progressive, I have been left stunned by the sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton this election season by both the right and the far left. Humanity for Hillary, an organization of artists and activists, collaborated to confront sexism in this election cycle by releasing #ThisWhatMyRevolutionLooksLike featuring a creative, powerful group of female artists: Lena Dunham, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Hill Harper, Rosie Perez, Lea Delaria, and Nastasha Lyonne.
On July 13, 2015, Sandra Bland was pulled over for forgetting a turn signal, something every driver has mistakenly done at least once in his or her life. Bland, however, was arrested after a mild confrontation, and soon found hanged in the cell of a Texas county jail. That very month, four more black women died behind bars: Kindra Chapman, Raynette Turner, Joyce Curnell and Ralkina Jones.  Bland’s death was a shock to all that knew her.
John Oliver did what he does best and hilariously destroyed Donald Trump (and several other terrible members of the GOP) in his recap of the RNC “the most apocalyptic event” that has ever happened in Cleveland. Oliver was off the air during the time of the RNC, and boy did he make up for it. Repeatedly. Perhaps the funniest bit of the whole video is Oliver’s discussion of what certain members of the GOP deem to “fact,” if only to back it up with how they feel.
Last Wednesday, for the first time in my life, I was fortunate enough to be in the presence of the original queen of punk rock, the one and only legendary, incredible, poetic, and awe-inspiring Patti f*cking Smith. I’m trying (and failing) to maintain some chill while I write about this.
