Flash 312 coverFlash #312 – “Dead Heat for a Scarlet Speedster” – Cary Bates/Carmine Infantino/Dennis Jensen

This one starts with Barry (Flash) Allen calling his parents to catch up. Apparently he’s not satisfied with the next best thing to being there, so Barry changes to the Flash and zooms across country for some home cooking. He ends up staying the night. Meanwhile in Central City, Mick (Heat Wave) Rory checks in with his parole officer, a guy named Hobart. Mick has a job at a glass foundry, and given his predilection for heat, that might seem a bit suspicious. Continue reading “Comics Reviews:”

Warehouse 13 Reviews: Season 5, Episode 6

Warehouse 13 opening titleEpisode 6: Endless

That’s a rather ironic title, since this is the last episode of Warehouse 13. It basically gives the characters (and fans) a chance to look back on the series and how they’ve evolved over the past five years. But don’t worry, it’s not one of those flashback episodes; we get to see new “old memories” as the characters face the end of their time at the Warehouse.

JLA 205 coverJustice League of America #205 – “The Final Hand” – Gerry Conway/Don Heck/Romeo Tanghal

Over the last couple of issues, a new Royal Flush Gang has been taking out Justice Leaguers left and right. So far Firestorm, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Superman are all hospitalized in some kind of strange coma, as if their minds are being stolen from afar. Last issue, Ralph (Elongated Man) Dibny and Black Canary tracked some tech to a company called Megaform whose CEO (Reston) attacked them. But after they beat him, he claimed to have amnesia and had no idea what had happened.

Superman 374 coverSuperman #374 – “Love is Deadlier … the Second Time Around” – Cary Bates/Curt Swan/Dan Adkins

Last issue, Superman’s old friend Vartox came to Earth for a visit, and to reconnect with Lana Lang. Vartox’s planet is too toxic for Lana to live there, but she acquired a protective aura from an incorporeal benefactor. Instead of being suspicious of this sudden good fortune, Lana and Vartox were thrilled and started making plans for her to go back to his planet together.

Warehouse 13 Reviews: Season 5, Episode 5

Warehouse 13 opening titleEpisode 5: Cangku Shisi

Last episode, Artie told Claudia that her sister Claire (who’s in an artifact-induced coma to keep her from freaking out and using her telekinetic powers) was missing. Claudia and Artie go to the building where Claire was held to look around. Claudia isn’t impressed with the security and Artie reminds her that she broke in as well.

Batman 350 coverBatman #350 – “Nightmare in Crimson” – Gerry Conway, Paul Levitz/Gene Colan/Tony DeZuniga

Last issue, Dick (Robin) Grayson found out his ex-girlfriend (Dala) is a vampire. Unfortunately, he found out the hard way, after being kidnapped by Dala and bitten on the neck. He escaped and almost got run down by a priest on the highway. The priest took him to a hospital, where he’s now recovering. Robin has a fevered dream about Dala turning into a gothic monster and trying to kill him, and he wakes up to find Father Green watching him with worry.

Flash 311 coverFlash #311 – “Captives of the Boom-Boom-Boomerang” – Cary Bates/Carmine Infantino/Frank Giacoia

Last issue, Colonel Computron (yeah, I know) reappeared, still looking for revenge against W.W. Wiggins. Computron’s identity is a mystery, but it could be either Basil Nurblin (who developed the Computron toy for Wiggins and got nothing in return) or his wife Francine. It could even be their daughter, Lena, since she’s studying science in college. Anyway, Computron tried to kill Wiggins and Captain Boomerang (who feels he owes Wiggins for giving him his first job) saved him, but Flash told Wiggins not to trust Boomerang. It seems Flash may have been right, because Computron offered Boomerang a deal: if Boomerang lets Computron kill Wiggins, Computron will also get rid of the Flash.
