Make Mine Marvel. Love the DC characters, and love their world, but Marvel has always been a bit more grounded for me, and seems a bit more interested in exploring the real issues that matter, especially that explore concepts of alienation and being apart. Give me Spider-Man, X-Men, and Ms. Marvel - these are the stories that really charge me up.

That activism starts with you. Whether your a member of Anonymous or just someone at a desk, it is your responsibility to be educated. But most importantly, if you find yourself under tyranny, in any aspect of your life, you can't wait for a savior - you have to save yourself.

And one can't forget the utterly charming MS. MARVEL, which is easily one of the best books on the shelves right now, for any reader.

Jackson, did you hear that? Hold all calls - we've got a writing assignment to get to!

What an awesome question. Jackson and I have a number of different playlists we listen to for every project, and Hack was no exception. In terms of the movie, anyone would be a fool not to hunger for Trent Reznor to be involved - in fact, the soundtrack to the Social Network played a large part in helping us to craft the world of YourLife. Tunisia obviously required a very different audioscape, so we found ourselves exploring the music of Ali Farke Toure and Fela Kuti. In fact, one of my favorite jams for working on Hack was a mash-up album called The Afrobeatles, (http://www.afrobeatles.com/), which combines Fela's music with our favorite boys from Liverpool. Very high energy, very fun, but politically charged.
