Review by Philip Clark
“One Of My Turns” part two. Harley and Frank have dropped in on a cult gathering deep within the New York sewers. Finding themselves overwhelmed, it takes some quick thinking from Harley to save the day yet again.
This issue is full of Harleyness. Sebela has done yet another fantastic job of writing the incredible Harley Quinn. Channeling the craziness and strangeness of the character perfectly onto the page. The story really suits Harley’s style. It showcases Harley’s unique style at heroism and problem-solving.
I feel that the issue was great for those being bullied or having to deal with some form of peer pressure. Now, I’m not saying to do what Harley put in play. But it shows that there is a way out. Which is a fantastic message to send to those going through something similar. Harley’s just a great wholesome character that many readers can relate to. That translates brilliantly in this story, Sebela has written an incredible story. I cannot say enough good things about this story run so far.
The only niggle I can have, is that I feel Harley does a lot better in an ensemble. I feel like she’s much better as a team player, adding that spark of crazy to a situation. As great as last issue was, I feel this week’s issue was better due to the fact Harley had more supporting characters. It was still missing that, something though. That stand out supporting character that I feel she needs. Something akin to how she was with Joker. A protegee, or sidekick that she can teach and have witty banter with. That’s all I feel is missing.
Yet another strong issue from the creative team. Sebela writes an interesting story, with characters that are easy to relate to. The artwork is great in this issue as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the comic and look forward to where the story goes next.

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
