Review by Kendra Hale
Congratulations! You’re Doomed
“A Seat At The Table” is here and it gives us what Harley wanted most. As a member of the Legion Of Doom, Harley faces the one person who can take her down… Joker. The thing is, he isn’t acting as she expected and this is throwing her off her game. With her crew relying on her help, as well as Ivy expecting her to keep her word… a lot rides on her shoulders this episode. Whether she will she make the right choices remains to be seen.
Has Harley found herself truly alone? “A Seat At The Table” truly gives viewers a heady mix of both serious and hilarious. Bane, voiced by James Adomian, gives us some really great moments with his vendetta against Todd, the cashier at a local smoothie bar. It’s hard not to feel bad for Harley in this one as even Batman takes pity on her. The Harley/ Joker battle has been building, of course in other mediums, through this season – with Harley fighting tooth and nail for him to see her as an equal – it remains to be seen if she’ll be able to stand strong on the rebound of her actions.
This finale has been one of the best parts of the whole series because it’s delivered on all the moments and stories that led up to it. Yes, there have been jokes and puns, but there have also been relatable moments, which is what has always been the main draw for Harley Quinn herself, and all her supporting characters. Everything has been in sync and has unfolded with more impact, episode by episode.

“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
