We kicked off borg.com as a way to catch up on entertainment news, books and movies back on June 10, 2011. We’ve posted what’s new each day ever since to provide “your daily science fiction, fantasy, and entertainment fix” and continue to forge ahead as we ticked past our 900,000th view by readers today.

We want to say thanks to you for reading. It’s a lot of fun (and hard work) keeping up on all the great genre entertainment out there, be it on TV, in theaters, in books, or comics. We also want to thank all the comic book publishers out there that provide us with preview review copies, as well as book publishers and TV and movie studios and collectible companies that allow us to give you first available previews and reviews. We cover only what we’re interested in and excited about–we figure that if we like it, so might you.

Michael Golden cover to Dream Thief Issue 5

It’s a five-issue limited series with no ties to any current franchise.  It’s a gritty tale you might find from someone like Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, yet it’s not just another crime noir caper.  It’s a story about a superhero story for sure, but a reluctant one, who comes with plenty of baggage and character flaws and draws his power from what could be a cousin to Loki’s mask from Mike Richardson’s The Mask series.  It has its own unique, cool look, too.  It’s Dark Horse Comics’ Dream Thief, and if you missed it this year you’ll soon have a chance to pick it up in a trade edition.

On a particularly wrong time, wrong place outing with a friend, John Lincoln steals an aboriginal mask from an art museum display.  He then finds himself tumbling again and again through other people’s lives, waking each new day with the memories of a person who used John’s body to kill someone.  And each of the victims?  They deserved it.  In his quest to discover what has happened to him, he sleuths out the truth behind the acts of his own girlfriend, the mob, and baddies of every variety.
