Review: Suicide Squad #47
“Agent Of Oz”
Writer: Rob Williams
Artist: Philippe Briones
Review by Philip Clark Captain Boomerang is many things. A liar, a thief, a murderer, but there’s one thing he isn’t; a lying murderous thief. Wait… that’s not right. Struth mate, he’s taken down the ruddy Flash. He needs to be respected!
After the events of “Sink Atlantis”, Rob Williams writes a filler issue that gives us more insight into Digger Harkness. Whether this is just for a single issue, or for a small series-within-a-series arc remains to be seen.
Boomerang Bounces Back
There have been a lot of things happening in Digger Harkness’ life recently, and not all of them have been good. His history has been alluded at in previous Suicide Squad issues. Most recently when speaking to Waller about his life before being a criminal. It appears, according to this issue, that he was actually telling the truth.
That’s right folks, the tall tales of Captain Boomerang was correct information. Imagine that!
Happy go lucking his way through the entire comic, Harkness manages to disrupt massive arms deals and hunt down a dangerous Australian villain. Unable to keep himself from making quips, Captain Boomerang doesn’t really take his new solo mission too seriously. He does however, manage to succeed in his mission before the final panel.
Overall, the issue is a great comedic read. Something fresh and fun to settle the heavier stories that Williams has been writing recently. It certainly makes me look at Captain Boomerang in a new light. Williams is doing a fantastic job at enhancing the images of certain characters. Killer Croc and Deadshot being the most obvious so far.
I really enjoyed the artwork in this issue too, it really fit well with the feel of the comic. Philippe Briones does a brilliant job at capturing the essence of Captain Boomerang on the printed page.
An excellent filler issue to tie the fans over until the next story arc. Williams and Briones have added extra layers to the beloved character of Captain Boomerang.

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 …

Review by: James Stone
"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 …
