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.

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
Article by Paul 'Professor Elemental' Alborough When DC comics laid off so many of their staff the other day, I was devastated*. Another little piece of joy taken away, more fantastic creative people losing their jobs, another big conglomerate stripping creativity for parts then crushing the scrap, and a much reduced chance that my proposed ‘Ambush Bug VS Plastic Man’ crossover mini-series script would ever be approved. It goes without saying, but 2020 is as bad as the Marvel Swimsuit comics from the early 1990s. That’s bad. Social media being what it is, (that is to say a huge purple monster, hell bent on sucking the joy out of life, spreading division and destroying Metropolis,) has given DC comics a bit of a kicking over the last decade or so. Never quite seen to be as hip and cool as Marvel, DC rebooted with their "Rebirth" in 2016, which saw the original comic book line return to its roots. Many said this was just a cynical ploy to shore up its fanbase, and cla
Article by Adam Ray Wizards and the fine people working on Arena's upkeep have promised us a surge to bring Historic to a true forefront. Arena's format. I mentioned in a previous article a lot of the details. Simply put, permanent queues for Historic are coming back on May 21st. To celebrate this, they're releasing another Historic Anthology. 27 cards this time around, we have the same 4,000 Gem or 20,000 Gold pricetag for playsets of all the cards. We've seen two previews: Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger immediately become the new favourite Ramp payoff and Phyrexian Obliterator be Historic's way in for Mono Black Devotion. Now, let's check out something new. From cycles to cycling, enchantress to enchantment-counters, and we are very much landed. Shrines of the Faithful We've seen the flavourful Kamigawa cycle of Honden be shown off for this release. Both powerful and flavourful, the shrines all work very well when played in multiple
