Review: Batgirl Annual #2
“The Brightest Star In Heaven”
Writer: Mairghread Scott
Artist: Elena Casagrande
Review by Philip Clark Wow, what an issue. I’m loving what Mairghread Scott is doing with the character of Batgirl. The build up in this comic is something akin to a Thriller movie. Scott does a brilliant job at driving the narrative one way, before twisting down another route.
On the chase to catch a serial killer before they strike again, Barbara is forced to face a part of her past she’d rather forget. Is this just a one time deal though, or is this something she can longer keep hidden? I know I’m going to be reading the next issue to find out!
This was a thoroughly enjoyable comic from Mairghread Scott and Elena Casagrande. The pair pull all out stops for this epic story. Casagrande’s art style really adds to the whole Thriller vibe that Scott is putting onto paper.
A great read, and hopefully, not just a one-off story. I want more!

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 …

"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 …
