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.
“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
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
