Lost GirlEpisode 10: Like Father, Like Daughter

This one starts with Bo and Dyson staking out Zee’s place, waiting for her to show up so hey can confront her. Lauren calls and asks about Bo reviving her at the end of last episode. To me, it looked obvious that Lauren was sucking the chi from Bo—the implication being that Lauren’s messing around trying to extend her life span has turned her into a succubus.

Batman 316 coverBatman #316 – “Color Me Deadly” – Len Wein/Irv Novick/Frank McLaughlin

This one starts with some punk being pursued through an alley by Robin. The punk is cut off by Batman and freaks out, surrendering immediately. Apparently, he started a fire at the hospital, which makes Robin want to pound him a bit, but he decides the guy is probably some kind of nut and forgoes the beating. The Dynamic Duo hauls the dude back for the cops and Commissioner Gordon says the fire is already out and there was only some minor damage on the tenth floor.

Flash 277 coverFlash #277 – “The Self-Destruct Flash” – Cary Bates/Alex Saviuk/Frank McLaughlin

Last issue, Barry (Flash) Allen found out his wife Iris was dead. Barry had been drugged at a costume party and found escaped prisoner Clive Yorkin standing over Iris’s body. In his grief, Flash tried to get his friends in the JLA to bring Iris back somehow, but they all said it was impossible, so Flash went nuts and attacked them; that’s where this issue starts. Flash does pretty well against the combined efforts of his teammates, managing to run rings around them—literally. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: Flash 277, Wonder Woman 259, Green Lantern 120”

Lost GirlEpisode 9: 44 Minutes to Save the World

At the end of last episode, Bo opened the box that her father sent her as a birthday present. Zee (aka Zeus) freaked out, saying that would allow Hades (Bo’s father) to walk the Earth, but Bo reasoned it might take one kind of evil to fight another. Zee took off when she heard the box open, and Bo was bathed in light from the now open box. Continue reading “Lost Girl Reviews: Season 5, Episode 9”

JLA 170 coverJustice League of America #170 – “While a World Lies Burning” – Gerry Conway/Dick Dillin/Frank McLaughlin

You’ll remember last issue, five JLA members were sued by Ultraa for unlawfully imprisoning him and agreed to be taken into custody by the United Nations. But Ultraa’s lawyer is actually a weird protoplasmic creature, part of a hive-mind called the Over-Complex that has invaded Earth and is somehow increasing the oxygen content in the atmosphere and lowering sea levels. This is having disastrous side effects, like fires raging out of control and people rioting all over the globe. Ultraa figured out that his lawyer wasn’t human, but one of the protoplasm creatures observed Ultraa at the same time.

Superman 339 coverSuperman #339 – “Nuclear Nightmare” – Len Wein/Curt Swan/Frank Chiaramonte

This one starts with Superman in Houston stopping an experimental rocket sled that sped out of control. He slows the errant sled without injuring the test pilot and flies off. Back in Metropolis, He reflects that it’s nice to “escape” into his Clark Kent identity for a while, since being Superman 24/7 would probably drive him nuts. Clark runs into a neighbour, Mrs. Goldstein, who tells him he should exercise more and recommends he join a gym called the Hercules Health Spa.

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.
