Review by Philip Clark
“Clown for Hire” Part Two is a fun fuelled epic comic this week. Harley’s back from her trip to Apokolips, only to find out that her home is about to be demolished! She needs to come up with some money and fast! First trying her hand at some rather mundane jobs in the last issue, she finds a job listing online for a bounty hunter.
Leading her on a hunt to kill Lord Death Man, who can’t be killed. This leads to much confusion, and desperation from Harley as she attempts to get the money to save her apartment.
Please don’t ever get rid of Tina. She is an absolute diamond. I love her and her character. To be able to go from feeling right at home on Apokolips, to not being able to deal with going up the street to buy groceries. Honestly, I think she’s my new favourite character ever.
I also love Harley’s go get em attitude. She’s known for her spunky attitude, but this issue shows her grit and determination. What I also love about this issue is the fact that Harley’s not doing it for herself. She’s getting her apartment back for her friends, every time she feels giving up someone gives her a speech that makes her keep fighting.
Okay, so I was left feeling very confused at the end of this issue. There were a couple of things that came up in this comic that I am left just staring at the page about. I won’t spoil them for you, but when they come up, you’ll know.
Otherwise another delightful read.
Give Tina her own series. Harley’s a great person who’s trying to be the best friend she can, in her own roundabout way. Humphries needs to sort out some of this mess in the next issue. Well worth a read. Especially if you appreciate a little crazy.

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 …
