The Comics And The Times, They Are A-Changin’

I don’t like change. As of writing this article, it’s the first day of the release of iOS 10, and I spent the better part of the afternoon IMing my coworkers and asking them if it was really worth it, because I don’t like change and this was too much to handle. Eventually I caved, downloaded it, and… I’m still getting used to it. Hitting the home button twice to open the phone instead of swiping? Those opaque notifications? There’ll be an adjustment period, for sure.

I don’t think anybody likes change, really – and that goes especially for geek/pop culture fans. If I had a dollar for the number of times I’ve said to a friend “The first season of XYZ show was the best” because the first season had been ‘simpler,’ I could pay for a better PR agent for Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson.
