Looking for Clues

Given the obsessive-compulsive interconnected density of the Lost universe - - -and the obsessive-compulsiveness of its fans, myself included, in sifting for clues amidst the seemingly random matter- - - it's not that easy to dismiss the recent sight of Hugo reading a Spanish-language edition of Y: The Last Man, Vol. 3: One Small Step as just Brian K. Vaughan indulging in a bit of cameo self-advertising.

This particular arc ,after all, was about returning astronauts on an Earth radically and eerily changed and the race among factions to receive them. Before that, somebody was reading a Green Lantern comic with a polar bear in it and look where that led to.

So. Red herring? Or easter egg?

The First Warrior Princess

Finally! I would have loved a live-action movie though.

From the DVD's website: When the Amazon princess Diana [Keri Russell, Waitress, Felicity] escorts pilot Steve Trevor [Nathan Fillion, Waitress, Desperate Housewives, Firefly] home to the United States after his crash-landing on the mystical island of Themyscria, she must also deal with the ambitions of the Greek god Ares [Alfred Molina]. Ares intends to use an ancient artifact, the Hand of Rage, to plunge the world into a centuries long war that will also ensure his revenge against Themyscria’s Amazons. To save her people and the world, Diana must become Wonder Woman.

And the trailer:
