Ever have one of those weeks where work gets really, really busy and you just can’t read as many comics as you’d like? That’s me this week…and next week. And then it’s Halloween! At least we had some really good comics this week, from another stellar issue of Tom King’s Batman to a nifty Harley Quinn, drawing us ever close to the end.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the oversized Mighty Thor #700, which uses its anniversary status to tell some really neato tales!
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I’m throwing in the towel with The Wild Storm. I really wanted to stick with the comic for the entire duration and really provide an outsider’s eye to the experience, but with the latest issue this week, every reserve of energy I had left to care has been exhausted. This isn’t the comic for me. I’m sorry if I’m disappointing anyone and I hope you’re all still enjoying The Wild Storm.
Meanwhile, I’m super enjoying Saban’s Go, Go Power Rangers. I didn’t get around to writing up a review for the new issue, but the series is spectacular!
Comic Reviews: Batman #33, Harley Quinn #30, Mighty Thor #700 and Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #5.
It’s pretty funny this time! Probably because it’s written by the fans!
Sometimes the good people at How It Should Have Ended can be pretty funny! I need to get around to rewatching Spider-Man: Homecoming. It’s such a good movie.
I haven’t seen a new episode of The Simpsons in a very long time. I assume that’s probably the case for most of us. But this weekend is giving me cause to watch because Morgan Spurlock has apparently made an hour-long sports documentary about that classic episode Homer at the Bat. It’s the one about softball with all the baseball guest stars!
I love this kind of thing. Making sports mockumentaries about TV shows and movies. Have you ever seen the Space Jam episode of 30 for 30? Hilarious!
And, of course, I can’t leave you with reminders of Homer at the Bat without also linking that great end credits song!
It was a bonafide horror movie hit this year, which makes the subject of comic book clowns great for a Halloween-themed List of Six! There are plenty of clowns in comics, the most famous being, obviously, the Joker!
But we’re not here to talk about him. Everybody and their brother blog has written about the Joker! We’re going to talk about comic book clowns who aren’t the Joker! I started this month by talking about bat-themed heroes and villains who aren’t Batman. So how about a bunch of clown-themed heroes and villains who aren’t the Joker? Trust me, it’s going to be a ton of fun!
Marvel surprised us with a new trailer for the Black Panther movie, and it’s pretty neat!
If I’m being honest, though, I think I liked the first one better. And they should have re-used that car flip moment. It’s a cool moment, but if it’s the action centerpiece of two trailers, it’s gonna lose some of its energy.
Still, cool trailer, cool look at the movie and I can’t wait to see it in theaters in February!
