Review by Kendra Hale
“Finding Mr Right” launches us into another day in Harley Quinn’s quest to be seen as a true villain. Her new crew in tow, she’s in search of the one thing all good villains need… a nemesis. Not just any nemesis will do either, and with this goal in mind we take a step into the rocket launcher that is all of Harley’s spontaneous plans.
I Need A Nemesis... Chest Hair Required
Harley and her crews have been doing their hardest to be taken seriously in Gotham as elite villains. It’s an all-consuming thought for Harley, but it seems like no matter how successfully her plans turn out, they aren’t getting any attention. Gotham has its eyes on who the Caped Crusader is fighting… so Harley puts out an ad for a nemesis. This brings King Shark, voiced by Ron Funches, to her door. He is a tech genius who tries to help get her more views, which leads to my favorite part of the episode.
Finding Mr. Right is hard as the only hit is from some part-time fling, so what does our lovely Harley do? She steals the mother-loving Batmobile! It’s been a minute since a show has caused me to literally laugh out loud, and this scene got me. What’s so perfect is how with Harley, there are no explanations required, these things just happen. It’s unknown to her though that Batman is sending Robin, voiced by Jacob Tremblay, instead of going himself.
Super Special Guest
This episode has so many great moments, the laughs are there for the taking. Watching the Tawny Show unfold is worth the entire episode in itself. The banter between these characters is so fun, and watching the dynamics build between the crew is great. All the voice actors have really outdone themselves with these character translations, and the art team is absolutely great.
I fully look forward to the rest of this series and am fully on board with it being extended/renewed for a second season. It’s clear that DC have hit the nail on the head with a show like this. “Finding Mr Right” has been one of my favorite episodes so far.
If Harley Quinn continues the way it has, then I can’t say anything bad about it. It’s a pleasure to watch and review this show, and we’re only on episode 4. Each instalment has been a gem.
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
“ Off The Clock “ Writer: Katie Cook Artist: Butch Mapa Color Artist: Protobunker Letterers: Christa Miesner and Valeria Lopez Review by Steve J. Ray Some of my favorite comics are those that honor and follow the style of movies and TV shows. Comics like The Batman Adventures , for example. So, you can only Imagine my delight when a knock on my door resulted in my being handed the latest package from Penguin Random House. The box contained a copy of Marvel Action: Avengers : “Off The Clock”. This gorgeous little trade paperback collects issues #1-#3 of Marvel Action: Avengers , and is one of the most fun comics, both in terms of story and art, that I’ve read featuring these particular characters, in a long, long time. Synchronicity Strikes Again Recently I helped promote a couple of fan films which gave us a day, and a night, in the life of a superhero trying to get some time off. By some amazing quirk of fate, this book shows six Avengers (at first… ) trying to cope with some H.R.
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
