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?
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
Writer: Jeph Loeb Artist: Tim Sale Review by Eric Lee Welcome to our year long retrospective of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's seminal classic Batman story: The Long Halloween. Each retrospective will be released on a monthly basis. We will provide literary analysis and insight on one of the best Batman stories ever. Is The Long Halloween as good as its reputation? Read on to find out! Batman and 'The Godfather' The story starts off with the writer Jeph Loeb homaging the opening to The Godfather. Just like Don Corleone, Bruce Wayne boldly proclaims: "I believe in Gotham City." Bruce Wayne's character arc summed up in one sentence. The sentence is simple, but an important statement that defines Batman's character arc for the whole series. He has just completed his first year as Batman and his promise to rid Gotham of crime may be in his grasp. Bruce is uncharacteristically optimistic in not only his own abilities, but the power of the city
