Review: Justice League Odyssey #4
“Ghost Sector” – Part Four
Writer: Joshua Williamson Artist: Philippe Briones Color Artist: Jeromy Cox Letterer: Deron Bennett
Review by Adam Ray
The rocky start this title experienced appears to be over. It has become grounded and established in the current DC run, despite the changes and rewrites. Williamson has successfully managed to create a mystery and I am now entirely invested. This series is in its early stages, yet I am certain everything will become clear. As for right now, it is compelling to me how planets our heroes have never been to can venerate them so strongly. This issue also does the series’ title justice as well.
We really go on an odyssey in this issue. We depart from the tense situation issue three left us with on the junk world, and go to one of the machine worlds. The variety of planets adrift in the Ghost Sector really allows for a variety of stories to be told across this new spot in the DC Universe. I enjoy a story’s setting when it’s mixed and immersive. This creative team has perfectly captured each planet as completely distinct.
The journey also allows us to see just how these heroes have affected the Ghost Sector. A vision of each of their followings have come clear by now. This part of the storyline adds some personal opinions into the world of DC. A person having faith or bond to a religion can lift them. It is a beautiful thing to see. However, there are some times when that bond is too strong and it becomes zealotry. That is when faith becomes far too dangerous.
Throughout this story, one character who does technically qualify as one of the leads, has been busy. Darkseid has been a malevolent guide on the sidelines. He was included among the line up for this series, so it’s easy to assume he’d be significant. At present, he’s little more than on the fringes, delivering foreboding prophecies. I sincerely hope his relevance to the series increases, and Soon.

“George R.R. Martin Presents: Wild Cards: Now And Then” Writer: Carrie Vaughn Artist: Renae De Liz Inker and Color Artist: Ray Dillon Book Designer and Letterer: Thomas Napolitano Wild Cards: The Drawing of Cards excerpt written by Paul Cornell, penciled by Mike Hawthorne and Enid Balám, inked by Adriano De Benedetto and Lee Townsend, colored by Ruth Redmond, and lettered by VC’s Cory Petit Published by Bantam Books and Available from Penguin Random House Review by Steve J. Ray Wild Cards: Now And Then is a brand new graphic novel based in an alternate reality and shared universe co-created by George R.R. Martin, the man behind the now legendary Game Of Thrones TV show, and the books that inspired them. This alone makes this book intriguing, but the writing, art, colors, design, and lettering by the amazing creative team would still make this volume an essential purchase, whether Martin’s name appeared on the cover, or not. I’ve not played the game, or read any of the thirty-plus W
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
