Geek(s) of the Week: Chris Tobias and Jeff Cunningham Want to ‘Take Back the Sky’ for ‘Firefly’ Fans
Listen up, Browncoats! Have you ever looked up at the night’s sky and wondered if a spaceship named Serenity really was flying around out there? Well, if this week’s Geek of the Week honorees have their way, soon you won’t have to wonder. Chris Tobias and Jeff Cunningham are the brains behind ‘Take Back the Sky’, a brand new movement aimed at convincing privately owned SpaceX to name their first manned rocket after the fictional ship.
I’ll be honest, I’m not even sure where to begin in this review. As soon as the book ended, my head was swirling. Normally, I would say that’s a bad thing, but after letting my brain reform into solid grey matter, I came to realize that if a book had my brain in that much of a tizzy, it’s a good thing. Expect to go on one hell of a ride during this book.

There are two very familiar universes that seem to lend themselves to adaptation in countless, and seemingly unending, ways: The Wizard of Oz, and Alice in Wonderland. There is just something about these incredibly detailed worlds that offer storytellers a myriad of ways to adapt and expand them. One thing is for sure, the worlds presented in these classic tales are the kind that can be viewed from many different perspectives; from the bright and fantastical world of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, to the dark and haunting tale presented in MALICE, a web series from creator Phil Cook, currently embarking on it’s third season.
Co-creator of the YouTube series, Cinema Sins, Jeremy Scott decided to go down a different storytelling path, when he wrote The Ables. A story about a group of friends who are disabled empowered kids, but won’t let their disabilities stop them from being the heroes they truly are. Phillip is blind and telekinetic. James is blind and can teleport. Wheelchair-bound Henry is telepathic. Bentley has cerebral palsy and is a math and science genius. Donnie has Down Syndrome and is super fast and powerful. But sadly, the rest of their powered peers only see their disabilities. So the friends form their own team, The Ables, to prove to everyone that they can overcome their disabilities to join the others in protecting the world. It’s not until they identify a nefarious threat unfolding that they might be able to change everyone’s minds about them.
