IVP - Strangely Dim - Alias, Elektra

Alias, Elektra

All right, all you Alias geeks. I wanted to let you know about an article I wrote for inthefray.com about your little action-adventure show. I paired Sydney Bristow up with my own heroic obsession, Elektra Natchios, to look at the evolution of female action heroes. It was posted yesterday, just in time for the release of the Elektra DVD release. Just for kicks, here's the first line of the article, which should send some of you into immediate histrionics: "Jennifer Garner walks funny."

So, here's my challenge to you: read the article, and if you like it, go to all your little Alias or Elektra chat rooms and tell all your little friends about it. And if they really like it, tell them to go buy my book and save me from the shame of going out of print.

Comments are, once again, welcome. Hope you all had a nice April Fool's Day.
