Another week, another couple of new comics, and more of me ignoring all the Big Events going on right now. I should really get over that bias and try to enjoy some Big Events, eh? How’s Judgement Day going? Anyway, we’ve got new Legion of X and the start of X-Terminators!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #96 for a truly perfect finale to the first major storyline. Let us hope we get many major storylines going forward!
Meanwhile, COVID is a beast to fully recover from, but I’m trying. I’m taking a lot of naps and wasting a lot of time playing more Total War: Warhammer 3. I haven’t even started Andor yet. What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, COVID recovery.

I am very much looking forward to the upcoming video game, Gotham Knights. An Arkham-style game where you play as all the Robins? Especially the Tim Drake Robin? Sign me the heck up! And the game looks great! We just got this new Villains trailer this week.
The problem is, I don’t own a Playstation 5, and my gaming PC is pretty old at this point. So I just don’t know if I’ll be able to play and enjoy this game when it comes out. Will the world suddenly shift and PS5s will become available? I doubt it. Am I going to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade my PC just for this one game? Hells nah. So I guess all I can do is watch and enjoy these little trailers…
Gotham Knights comes out on Oct. 25.
Happy Wedding, everybody! If you’re reading this on the day of release, my sister is getting married today and I’m out celebrating and being a good big brother. Thankfully, I had enough time before I had to leave to read and review some comics, like Batgirls, Strange Academy and more!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman: Son of Kal-El #9. This crossover with Nightwing has been the best thing this new Superman has done so far in this series, and I only wish that magic could remain.
Meanwhile, I broke down and bought Horizon Forbidden West, even though I won’t have time to play it until after I get back from my trip. I guess I just wanted to spend that money. I also started the TV show Reacher, which is pretty fun and simple so far. I’ll finish that when I get home as well.

Looks like DC and Warner Bros are indeed going ahead with a Batgirl movie for HBO Max. That sounds good to me! They’re so serious about this project that they have actually cast Barbara Gordon. She will be played by Leslie Grace, who recently starred in In the Heights.
This also sounds good to me! Grace was really good in In the Heights and I’m sure she’ll be a fine Batgirl. Whether or not the project actually gets made is the other issue. DC have announced and abandoned so many movies that I’ve lost count. Heck, apparently that Nightwing movie is still happening? Who knows.
But Batgirl apparently has a screenwriter, a pair of directors and now a lead actor. So that’s all very hopeful, as far as I’m concerned!
So this is a first! I absolutely adored every single comic book I read this week. Sometimes I’m pretty lukewarm on an issue. Sometimes they’re just fine. But hot damn, every comic I read for review this week was a real banger! From the new issue of Nightwing to even Power Rangers! And you know I love me some Runaways and the new Way of X.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Wonder Girl #1 because it has the benefit of both being a first issue and having the artwork of Joelle Jones, which almost seems unfair.
But seriously, every comic I read this week was a dream. I was this close to awarding every single issue a 9 out of 10, which is pretty much the highest score I give.
Meanwhile, Heroes Reborn continues to be a delight! Jason Aaron seems to be having a blast creating a new Marvel Universe built around the Squadron Supreme. It’s nifty as all heck! Double meanwhile, I just finished Shadow and Bone on Netflix and I can’t recommend it. The show was fine, but it was drowning in YA tropes that near about strangled the life out of anything actually interesting on the show.
