It’s the season of spooks and monsters, and no one loves a good spook or monster than Guillermo Del Toro. But the director recently shared some thoughts on what makes the monstrous so fascinating to people, and his answer was suitably chilling.
Galactus, Devourer of Worlds, hates all life as we know it—so of course it makes sense that he would hate Mondays too.

The CW is working on another supernatural cop show. Plus, new Ant-Man & The Wasp set pictures and another look at Syfy’s Happy! adaptation. Behold, spoilers!
Super Mario Odyssey is only about a month away, and here’s a friendly reminder that if you have Amazon Prime, you can preorder it for $12 off (discount shown at checkout). This deal is valid up until release day, but Amazon’s been known to sell out of preorders of popular Nintendo games in the past, so it might…
When Randall picked up Gizmo from the antique store in Gremlins, obviously the Mogwai was the standout selection. That may not be the case, however, for this Gremlins poster, which turns that store into a pop culture cornucopia.
Andrew Finch’s Others Will Follow is about a mission to Mars gone awry, but this isn’t The Martian. There are no alien potatoes, and no jokes about space pirates—just a lonely astronaut reflecting on his fate, and deciding to risk it all to send one last inspirational message back to Earth.
With Fear the Walking Dead finishing one season and The Walking Dead about to start another, it’s the perfect time to talk crossover.
There’s this misguided idea that spirits and demons only show up during the month of October, even though the undead are active throughout the year. You think just because it’s hot out and you fell asleep in your American flag bikini holding a hot dog doesn’t mean there isn’t still a poltergeist subtly scooting a book…
Last year, the biggest surprise from DC Comics’ radically re-invented Hanna-Barbera comic book series was The Flintstones title written by Mark Russell. It was filled with prehistoric hipsters, existential dread, and dark philosophical undertones. Russell has even more messed-up stuff in store for Fred, Wilma, and...…
Pennywise was the scariest part of the recent It movie—but some of the human characters were nearly as terrifying, like the older-kid bullies who menaced the Losers Club. Two of those actors are a part of the intriguing cast of It director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of cult comic Locke & Key.
I’ve been reading DC’s Dark Nights: Metal with one eyebrow perpetually raised; something about the concept of the event and its aesthetics just weren’t clicking into place for me. But then I talked to a friend, who told me that the key to Metal was understanding that DC’s been in the process of deconstructing the idea…
Novelist Saladin Ahmed is currently behind one of Marvel’s most intriguing comics, the vivid and beautiful Black Bolt solo with Christian James Ward. But his next project sounds just as exciting: an original series for Boom that promises some good old-fashioned supernatural crime.
Star Trek: Discovery is in a hot spot. The latest episode, “Choose Your Pain,” was indeed painful, but mainly because of the choices it made—especially regarding Captain Lorca’s actions. io9 Video, with Beth Elderkin and Katharine Trendacosta, takes a look at why Lorca chose to leave a man behind for spite, as well as…
Today, physicists across the world celebrated as telescopes and observatories on Earth and in space captured a “kilonova.” Two neutron stars collided 130 million light years away, sending gravitational waves, x-rays, gamma-rays, radio waves, and light waves to the Earth. But these events also serve as a new kind of…

The fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels kicks off today with “Heroes of Mandalore,” a two-part episode. The story follows Sabine Wren on a daring adventure to destroy a weapon that could wipe out all of her people. Basically, it’s the kind of big-stakes, big-action stuff we expect from Star Wars.
Voltron: Legendary Defender’s fourth season is weird. A mere six episodes long (after a normal-length season was split to create the show’s third and fourth), at times it feels like it’s been cobbled together out of a season we never got to see the rest of. Yet despite that, it delivers some hugely satisfying stories…
Pennywise, the killer clown from It, has always been a terrifying figure—but if one particularly gruesome scene hadn’t been cut from the recent movie, he would’ve been even more nightmarish.
