Review: Batgirl #24
Writer: Shawn Aldridge
Artist: Scott Godlewski
Review by Philip Clark All life boils down to are the choices we make. Bad or good, everyone makes choices. Sometimes those decisions aren’t made in the right state of mind. There are times where we make what we think to be the right choice, but end up being the complete opposite.
Writer, Shawn Aldridge produces a gripping issue of Batgirl this week. Writing a story that is, as usual with Batgirl, thought provoking and emotional. Barbara is, quite simply put, an absolute gem of a character. She shines brightly in her own title, especially in this issue.
Too many choices
I simply love how Barbara can go from being the snarky, confident Batgirl to the warm and sensitive Barbara Gordon. The character of Barbara Gordon is a complex one and is written as such. She beats down on the criminals that deserve it. Then gives a heart to heart to those who need it. She’s a friend, a daughter, a genius and a crime fighter all in one.
Aldridge manages to capture all of these sides to Barbara’s personality in one spectacular issue.
This was a great read, and incredibly pretty to look at. Aldridge and Godlewski have done a fantastic job at bring Batgirl to life on the page. Aldridge manages to portray a heart-felt, bad ass Batgirl that really manages to empathise with the villain. Everything about this issue is great.
I would quite happily read a continuation of this story arc. I’d love for Aldridge to have a lengthy run on Batgirl.

Review by Steve J. Ray
This show is barking mad... and I love it. We left last week's episode on a cliffhanger, with the Decreator - a huge disembodied eyeball - high in the sky, disintegrating everything that met its gaze. Had our band of misfits failed, was Cloverton and the world doomed? Again? It's Snow JokeWith Jane and Cliff stranded in a magical realm inside a snow-globe (yes, you read that right) Larry, Cyborg, Rita and Kipling (guest star, Mark Sheppard) are left in a world that is slowly being, well... de-created.
Arch villain Mr. Nobody still has the Chief in his clutches, but how can his plans for world domination succeed, if there's no world left to dominate? Can this evil, bonkers, jigsaw-puzzle of a man put his …

Review by: James Stone
"The Long Night" was arguably the most impressive episode in the history of T.V. I don't know what the budget or production time was for this episode, but it delivered a theatrical quality finish that has completely blown my mind.
There have been many movies over the years that failed to deliver close to the action or suspense we have just been witness to. Game of Thrones has grown into one of the biggest most popular franchises in the world, but let's not forget this is still a T.V. show. This is entertainment. The Night King and his Army of the undead where at the gates of Winterfell by the end of last weeks episode "A Knight of Seven Kingdoms." With this knowledge it's not a spoiler to assume this episode was going to be all out war. What I wasn't expecting was how much of the battle we were going to see, and from so many different points …
