Thankfully, because some good things did happen this year, we got a renewal notice for a third season of Harley Quinn. I love this cartoon. I thought both the first and second seasons were amazing and wonderful and everything I could possibly want from a DC animated adventure. So I’m tickled pink that we’ll be getting a third season.
But what’s the third season going to contain? Harley Quinn is a show with very firm changes to the status quo. Characters are killed, Batman is horribly injured, romance is real; one of the main things I want is for these status quo changes to remain. There are real stakes in Harley Quinn and that is half the fun. But I’m a big comic book fan, and there are still things I hope to see in the third season!
Join me after the jump for my ideas for season 3. And expect FULL SPOILERS for the first two seasons. Harley Quinn is available to stream on HBO Max and I highly, highly recommend it!Read the rest of this entry
We have a doozy of a review pile this week, folks! The next chapter of X of Swords is a bit of a let down, but we’ve also got pretty wild issues of Power Rangers, Strange Academy and Legion of Super-Heroes. Not to mention the first issue of a new Shang-Chi ongoing!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Fantastic Four #24 for an utterly delightful love letter to classic Marvel Comics. Did you know Iceman was once a member of the Fantastic Four?
Meanwhile, I’ve started playing Hollow Knight and it’s pretty fun. I’m in a bit of video game limbo at the moment as I await Cyberpunk 2077. I played my way through Wasteland 3, but wasn’t taken by it. I had a lot of fun with the Tony Hawk remaster…but using the D-pad so much sprained my thumb. And I can’t seem to get into the Avengers game.
Maybe Baldur’s Gate 3 next week will help fill this void in my gamer soul. Either that, or season 2 of Fall Guys.

Good news, everybody! The Harley Quinn cartoon has been renewed for a third season! How wonderful. And oh how we needed good news. Meanwhile, reviews for Batman and a brand new Iron Man relaunch.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Thor #7 because it is legitimately fun and features a whole bunch of Beta Ray Bill! If only the new Iron Man featured a Beta Ray Bill cameo…
Meanwhile, I skipped the latest issue of X-Men this week. It’s just one big madness-inducing recap of whatever weird new lore Jonathan Hickman is building for Krakoan history? I dunno. He loses me when he delves into this stuff, even more so than when Grant Morrison does it. In better news, I’m playing the Avengers video game finally…though I don’t particularly like it.

Happy Birthday to me! Tomorrow I turn the ripe old age of 37. Jeez louise. Thankfully, several months of stir craziness and some extra money in my pocket has led to a lot of treating myself! My LEGO Razor Crest is supposed to arrive today, and I indulged in some classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater yesterday! So it’s gonna be a good weekend.
Pretty OK comics this week. I enjoyed all of them, but none really stood out as particularly amazing. So we’re going to award Comic Book of the Week to Strange Adventures #5 because that keeps getting screwy.
Meanwhile, I really enjoyed the show Teenage Bounty Hunters on Netflix. Such a great new show! It’s highly recommended. One of the best things I’ve watched this summer. Also, I finally got the tpb of Punisher: Soviet and it’s good! Always great to have another taste of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX.
Double also, I did not get the Avengers video game. I’m going to wait and see how it develops…

The last trailer I have to show from DC FanDome is the trailer for the new Rocksteady video game: Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. It’s not a gameplay trailer, just a really fun cinematic that shows off the characters and scope of the game. It’s pretty cool.
We knew this game was coming in some form or another. I even did a List of Six on the game prior to FanDome, of things I want to see in the game. How many did I get right? A few…it’s set in the Arkhamverse, it’ll probably have the Arkham fighting style, it’s going to feature multiple playable characters, it’s going to target the Justice League and Harley Quinn is one of the stars. So that’s 5 out of 6 things I get!
No word on whether or not the Joker shows up…
Still, the game looks cool and should be pretty awesome. It comes out in 2022, so we’ve got a long wait ahead of us. But long waits are nothing new in video game announcements, so I can be patient.
Honestly, I am now much more excited about Gotham Knights…
