Lost Girl Reviews: Season 3, Episode 1

Lost GirlEpisode 1: Caged Fae

This one starts with Bo (looking pretty funky) walking through a dark alley carrying a big satchel. A couple of dudes corner her and she kicks their asses, but not before getting sliced in the face. Continue reading “Lost Girl Reviews: Season 3, Episode 1”

Comics Reviews: JLA 154, Superboy & the Legion 239, All-Star Comics 72

 

JLA 154 coverJustice League of America #154 – “I’ll Kill You in Your Dreams” – Gerry Conway/Dick Dillin/Frank McLaughlin

This issue starts with a skull-faced bad guy melting wax figurines of some JLA members and gloating about how he’s soon going to get revenge on them for real. He’s not identified, but the fact that he has history with the League, and his constant references to “destiny”, means we can make a pretty good guess as to who he is. We see he’s in a faux castle that sits on top of a huge building, which is located on an island in a river. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: JLA 154, Superboy & the Legion 239, All-Star Comics 72”

Comics Reviews: Superman 323, Action 483

Superman 323 coverSuperman #323 – “The Man With the Self-Destruct Mind” – Martin Pasko/Curt Swan/Dan Adkins

This one starts with some drama (or melodrama, as the case may be); we see a weirdo named Atomic Skull freaking out and using his powerful eye-beams to demolish a statue of Superman. Seems Atomic Skull is dying (painfully) and the only people who might have cured him were thrown in jail by the Man of Steel. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: Superman 323, Action 483”

Lost Girl Reviews: Season 2, Episode 22

Lost GirlEpisode 22: Flesh and Blood

This one starts with Bo and Kenzi doing an inventory of weapons (plus a teddy bear) to use against the Goruda. Bo figures all the weapons are too mundane to do any real damage and knows she has to use the Naga venom to kill the Goruda but can’t see how. Continue reading “Lost Girl Reviews: Season 2, Episode 22”

Comics Review: Batman 299, Detective 477, Brave & the Bold 141

Batman 299 coverBatman #299 – “The Island of Purple Mist” – David V. Reed/John Calnan/Dick Giordano

When we last saw Batman, he’d been looking for someone who was leaving clues around Gotham to expose Batman’s secret identity. He tracked the clues to a penthouse in downtown Gotham and was greeted by a bright light and a mysterious figure. The figure turns out to be local Millionaire Baxter Baines (in a weird-looking dude in a purple cape) and warns Batman that if he steps out of the circle of light he’s standing in, he’ll die.

Flash 260 coverFlash #260 – “The 1000 Year-Old Root” – Cary Bates/Irv Novick/Joe Giella

This one’s a bit strange, so bear with me. It hinges on the premise (first revealed in Flash #203) that Iris West (Barry’s wife) was sent from the future as a baby because her parents thought the world was on the brink of nuclear war. The baby appeared in the backyard of Ira West and his wife and they decided to raise Iris as their own. Iris and Barry eventually found out the truth and actually visited her real parents in the future. Continue reading “Comics Reviews: Flash 260, Wonder Woman 242, Green Lantern 103, Firestorm 2”

Lost Girl Reviews: Season 2, Episode 21

Lost GirlEpisode 21: Into the Dark

This one starts with everyone (except Dyson) gathered at the Dal for Ciara’s wake. It’s a fairly festive atmosphere, with the bar full of people drinking to Ciara’s memory (and Ashley McIsaac playing the fiddle), but it’s pretty somber at the same time.
