Caffeine Is My Reckoning
“Bensonhurst” continues what began in last week’s episode, “A Seat At The Table“, which is very welcome, as that was one heck of a cliffhanger. My expectations for the follow -up were very high indeed, so let’s find out what happened to Harley and the gang!
There’s No Place Like Home
After a fight with literally all of her crew, Harley finds herself at L.O.D. lost and sad. After talking to her inner Harleen, she decides that home is indeed where the heart is, so makes her way to her Mom’s. In the beginning, it seems to be all lollipops and rainbows, but Harley soon realizes that all is definitely not what it seems, specifically when she has to deal with her Daddy Issues. Meanwhile, Ivy is in the fight of her life as she learns who had the audacity to not only kidnap her, but plans to do a lot more besides!
With Frank branching out to try and save the day, Harley’s dealing with targets on her back and no help… there are a lot of lives on the line. The suspense definitely ramps up as we watch our favorite characters face the most perilous of situations. Who will come out of this unscathed is for you, the viewer, to find out!
Sure Pack Of Winners
“Bensonhurst” was quite an interesting watch, presenting us with a different version of Harley’s family. It’s fascinating to see everything come together as the episode flows. As always the voice cast is phenomenal and the new appearances of Charlie Adler, Susie Essman, and Rory Scovel all bring brilliant new delights to the table. The episode is high paced and definitely delivers a rush, as we watch how everything ends for this part of the arc.
We get deeper insight into the characters of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy: On one hand, we get to see more about Harley’s past and what makes up this version of her character. With Poison Ivy we get to see more about her power and about her personality. Each episode is an amazing glimpse into the world as Harley sees it and “Bensonhurst” is another of the many interesting stops along the way.
As the series draws closer to its finale, each and every episode has been fighting for the top spot on my favorites list. If we take a look at Harley Quinn with those eyes, we have to expect the quality to remain high in the remaining episodes.
“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
