Christopher Arnold

Christopher Arnold

Meet Montreal Island-born fanboy Christopher Arnold. He is a fan of a number of things: comic book action/adventure heroes (the superhero kind included), science-fiction, horror, Japanese Animation, action figure collecting, cosplay photography, and fan art. While his main column focus at ENR is action/adventure storytelling (regardless of if it includes sci-fi, horror, fantasy), when it comes to reviewing/analyzing material, whether it be comics/graphic novels, film, or even television, he is the kind of person to avoid judging a work of fiction by time of release and by nation of origin (and that's part of his moral code). Also, he's not afraid to admit if he finds comparison between two unrelated media properties. While he enjoys serving you, the readers, he's not the kind to show his true face on social media (so PLEASE, RESPECT HIS PRIVACY).

A time ago, I took the time to get you readers excited for 2017 by revealing a number of female-led anime coming out in the winter anime season of the year, which already started. Hopefully, you are finding what you anticipated to see. Well, enough of anime. It is time to turn our attention to American science-fiction. No year of entertainment is ever exciting without anything to offer from one of the greatest genres in all media. This year however, the fun begins in February, thus my reason for not starting this a few weeks ago. So without further ado, I reveal in what will be my final column for ENR, 12 things from American sci-fi that are bound to make 2017 super for all you genre fans out there. So buckle up and enjoy the ride. Engage! Read more...
As a new year comes, we can always count a new year of entertainment awesomeness to look forward to, whether it be in comics, film, television, novels, video games, etc. Japanese animation, for one, is never without any awesomeness to offer in any season of any year (though viewers' tastes do vary), and unlike American animation, it is never seems to be short in brining out content with attractive female characters we can actually admire in each year of new premiers and releases as there is always an animated series or film from Japan to feature to offer such, not that we will watch everything out there (that's impossible).

Yet 12 MORE Anime Fit For An American Adaptation

Wednesday, 14 December 2016 13:35
Recently, word came out that Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (an action animated television series that I have never seen) got included in The New York Times' list of the 10 best television shows to air on Saturdays in America for 2016 with the superhero anime T.V. series My Hero Academia being in the same magazine's list of the 10 best international television programs of 2016. To be honest, hearing this news left me with mixed feelings; while I'm happy to hear of their the mainstream status as well as the honor they recently received, part of me fears it may lead to an increase in viewers who deem the trend of American screen production versions of anime/manga properties (both live-action and animated kinds) as redundant with a number of them...

7 Fantasy Aqua Teen Hunger Force Crossovers

Friday, 18 November 2016 18:13
For many years, the theme of the crossover between characters of separate fiction series has been witnessed by audiences in a number of entertainment mediums: comic books, video games, film, television, etc. Sometimes, the crossover is the subject of a specific television series episode (like say the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode of Family Guy for example) or even a specific issue of a comic book series. Additionally, history has witnessed the existence of kind of comic book series where each issue of such finds the series' protagonist interacting with guest characters of another fiction series. Think back to comic book series like DC Comics' The Brave and the Bold (particulary the first series volume after issue 50) and Marvel Comics' Spider-Man Team-Up as well as IDW... Read more...

7 Binge-Worthy Anime For Halloween Weekend

Friday, 28 October 2016 16:41
We genre fans are getting closer towards Halloween, and I am sure some of us have already worked out our lists on what to do in celebrating this year's Halloween. Plus, there is Halloween Comicfest happening on the last Saturday of this month, making the coming weekend officially Halloween weekend as it is the weekend right before Halloween itself. Not only are there a few horror movies to choose from to see in movie theaters this month, but there is also a line-up of free-to-access comic book items we can look forward to choosing from during this year's Halloween Comicfest, and I bet some of you are already enjoying the Halloween-themed episodes just released, including this year's "Treehouse of Horror" episode of The Simpsons.

When we think Halloween, we think a number of things bound to happen on that awesome annual days: telling scary stories, setting up fake haunted houses, kids trick or' treating around their respective neighborhoods, people finding Halloween-themed episodes on their television sets, comic colletors picking up their copies of free-to-access comic book items at their local comic shops (if that Halloween day is on the last October Saturday of the year that is), and last but not least, the option to dress up in costumes in public regardless of if they be home-made or store-bought. While you are never too old to enjoy Halloween, it is indeed a day worth celebrating for anyone who is a fan of science-fiction, fantasy, and/or horror and likes wearing costumes or just masks.

5 Cartoons That Could Have Been R-Rated

Thursday, 22 September 2016 21:00
I do not know how many of you are keeping up to date on what is going on with the U.S. film and television industry in regards to its upcoming manga/anime-based films, but it is official that Warner Bros.' live-action webmovie re-interpretation of the internationally famous Japanese horror comic book serial Death Note will tell the muderous-magic book tale at an R-rated level (with the director teasing that R-rated depictions of nudity and coarse language will be included), a creative decision that appeared to have caused a division of the Death Note fanbase to take place in terms of whether or not to approve of the matter with some already arguing on online forums that such a decision will mean the risk of the America-based studio itself going too far in its attempt to create a Death...
