Space Week: Blasting Off

Take a seat, strap yourself in, and say goodbye to the earth below you, because this week, we’re going where no POMEs have ever gone before: space, the final frontier. As we speed through the galaxy (and through others that are far, far away), we’re going to take a few stops along the way to enjoy articles, comics, and reviews of all your favorite sci fi themes and series. We get it — we know you feel this [excitement]. After blasting off with us, we know that by the end of this week, you won’t want to go.
