Some time ago, I reviewed the Star Citizen Alpha and, aside from a few hiccups, was pretty pleased with what I saw. Today, those issues seem to have been ironed out, only to replaced with new — and arguably worse — ones.

One thing’s for sure; Star Citizen has come a long way since I last discussed it. Like before, I’m still in a state of perpetual excitement as this crowdfunded gem inches its way to the inevitable release. The thought of seeing the likenesses of actors like Mark Hamill and Gillian Anderson hit my computer screen just shows how much this game means business.

But perhaps the biggest change with Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 is the new Star Marine gameplay mode, which comes across as serious FPS goodness. But again, like any Alpha, there are a few things to iron out...

Right away, I think of Guardians of the Galaxy, which is a really fun movie to watch. So is Doctor Strange, for the right audience. Heck, so is Avengers: Age of Ultron. And if they’re fun to watch, then they’re good, right? Isn’t that the point? Well, yes…and no. Movies like these have a relatively high entertainment value (though some movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe fall short of even that – I’m looking at you, Thor). They are, in a word, cool. But historically speaking, cool is anathema to cinema.

A movie, at its best, can be an expression of true art; thematically complex, rich, challenging, moving. Great (even good) art, regardless of medium, is layered with meaning, often leaving us to wonder how its creator stumbled on such a clear vision. Do we get these things from Marvel movies? With a handful of memorable exceptions (like a few lines at the end of Avengers: AoU), no, we don’t. This raises a few questions...

The last few years have seen sci-fi comics take a leading place on the shelves and in the hearts of comics collectors. Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples has had both critics and fans raving, while the reinvigorated Star Wars comics have seen great work from creators including Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, and Kieron Gillen.

Aside from the Marvel Star Wars comics, most of the sci-fi that gets attention comes from Saga publisher Image, the best home for non-superhero comics since DC closed Vertigo. But there are also some great indie sci-fi comics out there, whether ongoing or completed in the past few years...
