Lost GirlEpisode 4: Mirror Mirror

This one starts with Bo and Kenzi having a drink at the Dal and watching Dyson flirt with one of the waitresses and some blonde girl. Hale says they’re celebrating convincing a mob mistress to testify against her gangster boyfriend—mostly because she’s kinda hot for Dyson. As for the waitress … well, she’s obviously pretty into him, and he doesn’t seem to mind.

Flash 252 coverFlash #252 – “Double Dose of Danger” – Cary Bates/Irv Novick/Frank McLaughlin

This one starts with Sue Dibny (wife of Ralph Dibny aka Elongated Man) recounting the story in a flashback. We see a scuzzy-looking dude sneaking up on Sue and propositioning her. She kicks his ass and it turns out to be Ralph testing his gangster disguise. No wonder Dr. Light got so close, Sue probably thought he was Ralph fucking around. Ralph puts his face back to normal (or what passes for normal with him) and prepares to go undercover to infiltrate the hilariously-named Chane Gang. But just as he’s toasting Sue with a shot of Gingold, he disappears. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: Flash 252, Wonder Woman 234, Green Lantern 96”

(Kenzi: “Oh, like you’ve never been suckered by a big shaft of wood.”) Bo’s been throwing herself into spring cleaning to get her mind off Dyson, but I’m not sure it’s working.

JLA 145 coverJustice League of America #145 – “The Carnival of Souls” – Steve Englehart/Dick Dillin/Frank McLaughlin

This one starts out with a guy named Count Crystal calling up a demon (Azgore) and offering to sacrifice the souls of the Justice League in exchange for power—as you do. Azgore agrees, but says the League has consistently beaten all the other sorcerers who challenged it, and it Count Crystal doesn’t get the JLA’s souls, Azgore will take his instead.
