Way, way, way back in 2012, we reported that Frank Miller was working on a follow-up to his award-winning comic series 300. The original became a monster hit after being turned into a 2006 blockbuster directed by Zack Snyder. Six years later and Miller is true to his word. Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander is scheduled to be released in April 2018 from Dark Horse and will consist of five issues. Miller writes and draws the book, with Alex Sinclair doing the colors.
SPOILER WARNING! This is a recap of The X-Files' "Plus One," so the spoilers are out there. I have to get this out of the way: Mulder and Scully slept together!!! Like, blatantly, no other way to interpret the situation. "Put a dimmer on your afterglow." Yes, I am a die-hard 'shipper, and Mulder and Scully were ridiculously cute this week. I had a lot to say about this week's episode, so I am going to break it down for you into smaller, bite-sized bits.
Spoiler alert! Do not read if you are not caught up with Season 8 of The Walking Dead. Spoilers follow! When we last left The Walking Dead, Carl was not long for this planet. During the battle with the Saviors, Carl was bitten by a zombie. Though he managed to escape its rotting clutches, the bite was on his abdomen, meaning death is inevitable.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
