I've found this fun little animated web series, and thought i'd share it here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trfB_0ycTp0&list=PL_9VobYoMHhBjLjSxq5vzNW_9b00VUxiE

The creator has taken Native America, and Mesoamerican mythos, as well as early American folk tales, mixed them together, and come up with a unique story. There is also a heavy musical influence to the series, though admittedly very different music to that associated with QC.

Anyway, give it watch, and i hope you enjoy.

Yesterday we saw Tennant and Tate in Much Ado About Nothing. Find it. It's hilarious.

For those that are into manga and anime I highly recommend Wandering Son (Horou Musuko) it's is probably the single best piece in anime/manga with a positively represented trans character. For non-LGBT focused work with a well represented trans character I'd say watch Moyashimon. Kei starts transition during the first season of the anime but it's really just a side plot since she is not the main character.

"San Junipero", an episode from Season 4 of "Black Mirror". Not a remarkable plot but meticulously crafted and emotionally affecting.

Black Mirror as a whole is such a great show, with almost perfect handling of contemporary issues.

Anyway, I highly recommend 2 Netflix shows: Mindhunter and Dark.

I need to dig out my copy of the 2010 BBC4 version of Macbeth, starring Sit Patrick Stewart. It's faithful to the original, and fits surprisingly well into a early 1950s Stalinist Soviet Union setting.

Along this line, I'd also recommend Throne of Blood (Kumonosu-jō), the 1957 adaptation by Akira Kurosawa.

Kill Six Billion Demons

The best description I can come up with is a pandimensional wuxia-styled adventure influenced by heavy metal and hard drugs.  Currently on an interlude as the author works on a huge update.

"The Abyss Surrounds Us" Lesbian pirate, a girl who trains and controls giant sea monsters, naval battles, monster fights, burgeoning love between queer ladies. It's a quick paced, fun, and engaging story with rich, complex, layered characters, exciting action, tense emotions, and a healthy discussion of consent.

Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
A romance comedy anime/manga. I enjoyed it and think that other fans of QC might enjoy it too.

It's about some twenty-something nerds with office jobs being in romances, having misunderstandings and troubles, and addressing those troubles by talking about their feelings with each other.

The last few arcs in QC (Sam's workplace injury, Claire's anxiety) have been in similar spaces. Where the troubles of everyday life can be overcome, if you put in the emotional work.

Miss Melee - An indie superhero comic.
Basically, it's the story of Janice 'Jan' Jones, a white-collar suburban professional, wife and mother who somehow manages to lead an amazing double-life as a costumed crime-fighter. However, as the story progresses, it becomes ever clearer that the two sides of Jan's life are slowly beginning to merge!

I would recommend "Umbrella academy" on Netflix. Based on a limited comic series, it's basically about a dysfunctional family of 7 adopted children with possible superpowers.

WIthout giving away anything, one of the best things about it is that it's not much about their powers, but really about the family dynamics and personal struggles. Yet, there are some fascinating sci-fi/fantasy ideas strewn in as well. While not perfect by any means, it has enough going for it, including a some strong performances, mainly by Ellen Page and 15-year old Aidan Callagher.
