“Exclusives and x-Heights Across the Multiverse” is an exploration of newspapers in works in fiction. Asking questions such as: Why would the editor do that? Was the sub-editor ill that week? What sort of Pulitzer Prize would Lois Lane actually win?
Here you will find a look at the physical props and the designs created to support the make-believe worlds they inhabit, to extrapolate information about the state of the journalism industry and what it means for specific fiction. Or sometimes just laughing when it looks wrong.
If you’re still not sure whether this is the sort of thing you would find passably interesting, see if you answer YES to the following questions:
- Have you ever wondered why Cordelia’s “Invoice” is spelt with a zero (INV0ICE) rather than a capital O (INVOICE)?
- Did you rationalise it as her budding entrepreneurial spirit being let down by poor computer illiteracy and a desire to please over her desire to be accurate?
