Lost GirlEpisode 8: End of Faes

This one starts with Tamsin moving out. You’ll remember last episode she freaked out when Bo told her she loved her, but wasn’t in love with her. Ah, that old line. Bo is worried about Tamsin (Bo: “Where will you go?”; Tamsin: “Wherever the wind takes me … Motel Six, then wherever the wind takes me.”) and doesn’t want to lose another friend.

Batman 315 coverBatman #315 – “Danger on the Wing” – Len Wein/Irv Novick/Frank McLaughlin

This one starts with Batman catching a couple of punks inside City Hall in the middle of the night. They attack, one with a knife and the other with a nunchaku, and Batman pounds both of them. A third thief is on the roof, letting a kite fly off into the night, and when Batman confronts him, he’s smart enough to give up without getting his ass beat. The kite flies through Gotham, going around corners and moving against the wind. It finally comes to rest on another rooftop across town, where it’s eagerly grabbed by the dreaded … Kite Man!

Flash 276 coverFlash #276 – “Freakout” – Cary Bates/Alex Saviuk/Frank Chiaramonte

You’ll remember last issue was a pretty momentous one; Barry and Iris attended a costume party (as Flash and Batgirl) and someone drugged Barry. Iris went to get him some water and ended up dead, apparently at the hands of escaped nutcase Clive Yorkin, who blames Barry for letting him be turned into a raving maniac by a prison experiment (even though Yorkin volunteered for the experiment and Barry had it shut down as soon as he realized how dangerous it was).

Lost GirlEpisode 7: Here Comes the Night

Remember that storm that started at the end of last episode, the one Heratio, Zee, and Iris seemed to be enjoying so much? Well, it hit, and it was apparently pretty intense. Bo and Dyson walk through the devastation, trying to help people who are trapped or hurt. Continue reading “Lost Girl Reviews: Season 5, Episode 7”

JLA 169 coverJustice League of America #169 – “The Doomsday Decision” – Gerry Conway/Dick Dillin/Frank McLaughlin

This one starts with five members of the JLA (Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Red Tornado, and Green Lantern) on trial before the World Court for violating someone’s human rights. No, it’s nothing to do with the rampant mindwiping and personality altering that’s been going on lately. This is about them imprisoning Ultraa in a force cube without any kind of trial or even a hearing. Ultraa was rescued from his prison last issue by a human rights lawyer named Sloane, who’s now representing him in court.

Superman 338 coverSuperman #338 – “Let My People Grow” – Len Wein/Curt Swan/Frank Chiaramonte

This one starts with Superman at the heart of an exploding supernova. No, he’s not on vacation, he’s collecting energy from the supernova that he hopes will help enlarge the bottle city of Kandor. The energy from the exploding star is so great Superman has to wear a special space-suit, and even then he’s almost overwhelmed. His collecting device melts, but he figures he’s got enough supernova energy, so he heads back to Earth. But being at the heart of the supernova sapped his strength and he passes out, plummeting down toward the ground. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: Superman 338, Action 498, DC Comics Presents 12”

Lost GirlEpisode 6: Clear Eyes, Fae Hearts

This one starts with what can only be a dream sequence. Lauren is winding a music box (or maybe a jack-in-the-box) which looks exactly like the present Bo got from her father last episode. Lauren has a weird look on her face, but before anything pops out of the box, Bo wakes up … and she’s in bed with Tamsin. Continue reading “Lost Girl Reviews: Season 5, Episode 6”
