Review by Kendra Hale
“L.O.D.R.S.V.P.” starts with Harley and the crew up to shenanigans again. This time they’re stealing Atlantean jewels from Aquaman. First thing? Horrible puns… such horrible puns. However, Harley and the gang are successful, thanks to kelp from Ivy. This successful venture gets them an invitation to visit the Legion Of Doom, which is what Harley’s been waiting for. My last review can be found here. All set? Let’s go!
Reluctantly Ivy goes along with Harley and the gang to the Legion, where they’re treated to a tour by Scarecrow, voiced by Rahul Kohli, who hones in on the crews’ desires. Everything seems to be too good to be true, expect for Ivy, who’s rightly suspicious of the whole thing. She corners Lex, voiced by Giancarlo Esposito, who drops a truth bomb that could drive a wedge between Harley and Ivy.
The revelation doesn’t sit well with Ivy, but what is she to do? Harley’s her best friend and this has been shown brilliantly throughout the whole series. L.O.D.R.S.V.P begs the question, what can happen when there’s a break between two besties? We also see Harls on her own dealing with the League member she was most anxious about… Joker
“L.O.D.R.S.V.P.” gives us an overlapping story instead of an all-in-one. Harley Quinn has given us many important storylines, but this one sets up to one of the most important so far, in my opinion. What will Harley do, now that she has what she has worked so hard for? Is the Legion Of Doom really all she has wanted for herself and her crew? Or, should she be far more careful of what she wishes for?
“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
