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.

Interview panel led by Steve J. Ray, with a gathering of Comic/TV Media Journalists. I've spoken to some amazing people over the last couple of years; writers, artists, costume designers, and actors from some of my favorite TV shows. It's no secret that I'm a huge comic-book fan, and one of the TV series that's based on and inspired by a comics title - but has gone on to be so much more - is The Walking Dead . At a recent Comic-Con in London, I had the great opportunity of leading a panel where some fellow journalists and I spoke with Madison, Matthew and Macsen Lintz, three siblings who played Sophia and both iterations of Henry on the show. The eldest, Madison Lintz (born 1999) played Sophia Peletier - Carol's daughter - in the first two seasons. She's also well known for playing Maddie Bosch in the Amazon series Bosch . She started acting at the age of six, filming commercials and voice-overs. Matthew (born 2001) took over the role of Henry from
SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti
The Spider-Man Clone saga is one of the most reviled story lines ever. It featured the return of Spider-Man's clone Ben Reilly, but also dragged Spider-Man through one of the strangest, series of conspiracies and narratives that the franchise have ever seen. But... is it really as bad as the internet would have you believe? Come with us as we review the Clone Saga story arc by story arc as we uncover how one of comics' most infamous series holds up today.

So far, the story has been relatively easy to follow and engaging for the most part. However, "Ka
