The Man Without Fear made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut today with 13 totally bingeable episodes of Daredevil now available on Netflix. The show is the first in a series for the streaming service that will include Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, before culminating in an Avengers-style crossover, The Defenders. Just take a peek at the teaser below and see if you don't agree, with Charlie Cox slipping into the role of Matt Murdock/Daredevil, that Marvel's horned hero has never looked hotter.
The American People by Larry Kramer
Do you need a herstory lesson? Well, look no further than The American People: Volume 1: Search for My Heart, a beautiful choad of a novel by famed rabble-rouser Larry Kramer (The Normal Heart, Faggots) that was finally released after decades in the making. In nearly 800 pages, the HIV activist rewrites American history to include queer people -- or at least his creative reimagining of what might have occurred if George Washington, Ben Franklin, and other founding fathers had relationships with other men. It's fierce, passionate, and messy. So bring a tissue, darling, because you'll be brought to tears by this strong statement against centuries of erasure from the pages of history.

Speaking of power-hungry divas, Veep's Madame President Julia Louis-Dreyfus and those nerds on Silicon Valley will debut right on GoT's dragon tails. Don't miss them!
The Queen of Pop channels Stevie Nicks and tangos with Terrence Howard while serving post-apocalyptic realness in her new music video "Ghosttown." If you're wondering what that faint sound was when the video dropped earlier this week, it was the collective, "YAAAAAAS!" from her loyal legion of gays. Don't be the last to join in the chorus.
