Review by Kendra Hale
Can I Count On Your Vote?
“All The Best Inmates Have Daddy Issues” most certainly gets the mascara running. So, I guess that Ivy and Joker have more in common than just Harley eh? Last week we got more insight into Batman’s life, now the ladies take center stage.
The Nature Of Things
The girls are out on the town when they encounter a retrograde Joker, who seems to have no memory of the duo. Ivy suggests just ending the issue permanently, but Harley opts for a stroll down memory lane, swearing that people can change. Reminiscing back to when Dr. Quinzel arrived at Arkham Asylum for the first time, Harley tries to persuade Ivy of her logic. We get the treat of seeing some of Gotham’s most notable characters in a new light, with plenty of laughs thrown in.
Mr. Dent You Can’t Burn Inmates
“All The Best Inmates Have Daddy Issues” is another shining example of just how genius this team is, from top to bottom. It contains a perfect mix of pun work and dry humor. Foreshadowing and homages abound in this juicy bite of an episode. It’s a genuine pleasure to watch this cast work, and the depth that this series has shines stunningly in this episode. Like Shrek says, “It’s all about layers”, something Harley Quinn takes to heart.
I am always amazed at just how real this show can get and how they make you root for their villains. Actually, even that doesn’t quite sum it up, they’re able to give a complete 360-degree view of the spectrum their characters fall upon. We get to see that both camps have a human side, and as a fellow creator, that just feels like the biggest compliment that I can give to this series.
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
