I think I have a money spending problem. I just splurged on the New Pokemon Snap and I’ll be playing it this weekend. At least I’m putting my new Nintendo Switch to good use! And there’s always new comics to buy, like the first issue of the new Robin solo series!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Beta Ray Bill #2. Not only does this series star the greatest comic book character of all time, but it seems to know exactly what to do with him and how to tell this story.
Meanwhile, I’ve finally started watching Doom Patrol and I am loving this show! I’m only a few episodes in and it’s already brilliant. I’ve only ever heard good things, and I’m glad I never gave up on this show. I’ve simply never cared that much about the Doom Patrol in the comics, but their show is phenomenal so far! Highly recommended.

Earlier this week, we got a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad movie by James Gunn. Red band means it’s not fit for our innocent eyes. Fortunately for all of us, DC and Gunn have released a green band trailer that’s safe for work and our innocent eyes! And it’s just as much fun!
This movie looks great! Both trailers are a ton of fun. All the characters look to be a ton of fun. This whole thing looks like a big, fun action romp of a movie that we’re all hopefully going to love! I’m going to get the hype up regardless!
The Suicide Squad comes to both theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6!
Good news, everybody! My local movie theater is open again and I just saw Nobody! The first movie in theaters in a year — if we don’t count that fun story I have about finally seeing Tenet. Nobody was fine. I’m still surprised it was not a parody. But enough about movies, what about comics? Like Detective Comics and Harley Quinn! Though this is one of those rare weeks where I didn’t read any Marvel comics…
Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #5 with a lot of fun new character arrivals and exposition dumps!
Meanwhile, another banger episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier! Loving this show! And on the side, I’ve started watching Snowpiercer. It’s pretty good so far. Enjoyable. Nothing amazing, but it gets the job done. I’m also going to try to finish off the new DuckTales cartoon. I’ve very much enjoyed that show.

DC and Warner Bros. took two tries to make a Justice League movie that people liked, so it appears they’re going to try a second time for a Suicide Squad movie! Huzzah! At least this time we know for sure it’s going to be good, because it’s written and directed by James Gunn! The man who made the Guardians of the Galaxy into a household name of comedy is making The Suicide Squad!
Since it’s a Red Band trailer, you’re just gonna have to click over to watch it on YouTube. That’s not my rule.
Trailer looks really good to me! The dialogue is funny, the characters seem pretty great, and Margot Robbie is still killing it as Harley Quinn. I trust James Gunn completely and I am on board for The Suicide Squad! Not to be confused with Suicide Squad.
The movie comes to theaters on Aug. 6, and then to HBO Max about a month later, it seems.
What a week! Not only do I have a pile of comics to review, but I also have a big pile of comics to review! Between Future State at DC and my favorites at Marvel, there’s a lot to read and review! Fortunately for me, they’re all largely comics I enjoy, like Far Sector, Future State: Wonder Woman and X-Factor!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the returning Runaways, because that comic is just so precious! Any issue is a reason to celebrate!
Meanwhile, another banger of a WandaVision episode yesterday! I’m definitely going to have to do a review list when it’s all done! Also this week, I’ve been building the Marvel Legends Stilt-Man figure! I can’t believe that’s real! I bought it using the ad money I earn from this site. I only make about $10 a month in ad revenue, and I only get paid by WordPress once I have $100 built up, so payments are few and far between. But I got $100 last month, just in time to go on eBay and start buying individual Stilt-Man pieces! He looks great!
