The Gifted had a lot of potential going into the two-part Season 1 finale, but instead of leaning into its strengths, we were given a display of some of the show’s biggest weaknesses. There were a few moments that were quite excellent, but they weren’t enough to send the first season of this X-Men show out on a strong note. Author’s Note: this is a review for both episodes “eXtraction” and “X-Roads” that comprised the two-hour finale.
Superheroes fight incredible battles to save the day, but what’s not always explored is how they cope with the trauma afterward. DC Comics writer Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle) is looking to change that with Sanctuary, a new place in the DC Universe where heroes can go to deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other related issues; a place to heal wounds that aren’t physical. "Every DC comic is full of violence.
Over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, an event called “DC in D.C.” took place in Washington D.C. where Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment brought together various voices from the world of entertainment to spotlight how DC superheroes are used to address real-world issues.
So yeah, #DCinDC2018 was unexpectedly challenging for me as a person but was ultimately an incredibly important and powerful event that I am so grateful had the chance to happen. It most certainly needs to become a regular thing.
#DCinDC2018 was everything you hope for when you attend a panel at a comic convention. Pitch perfect programming, panelists, and moderators, all in an intimate setting. In a lot of ways it felt like a one-day con, I even referred to it as such accidentally a couple times.
They held #DCinDC2018 on MLK weekend in our nation's capital to spotlight the world premiere of Black Lightning, and while of course it was done as a big marketing push, it truly meant something special to give these people a platform to tell their stories.
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".
