Review by Kendra Hale
The last issue was an absolute whirlwind. A number of secrets came to light and we learned more about our villains, and also about the screen stars being targeted. Harley also made some new discoveries relating to the man she is partnered with, Hector. This led her to where Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #4 begins; in jail, talking to Bruce.
Don’t Save Me
Harley has found herself with the one person whose advice she holds above all others, Bruce. After the most recent events, she’s questioning her abilities and herself.
A flashback to the night that Joker had his infamous fall into the acid brings certain truths to life. Readers learn that Harley’s not the only one questioning things, as we get a shift to the villains themselves.
Starlet and the Producer don’t seem to be on the same page, and things are not going swimmingly between the two. Harley may be the one to save Gotham, but what happens when the spotlight stops on her?
If You Want Him, Come And Claim Him
There are so many delicious moments in this issue. Harley and Bruce’s talk is one of my favorite moments, as their relationship has deepened, and the moments are tender. There’s the scene where Harley asks Bud and Lou for their advice on her disguise, which is hilarious. Each part of this book just winds up to the next, and there’s no jarring, it’s all fluid. The artwork’s gorgeous and eye catching, and the writing’s superb.
There isn’t much I can say about this series that I haven’t already. Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #4 continues giving us the greatness that we expect from a comic series, and it’s without question my favorite book currently on the market. I look forward to reading it and I miss it as soon as I finish the issue. As a comic reader that’s all I can ask for; for a series to haunt me.
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
“ Off The Clock “ Writer: Katie Cook Artist: Butch Mapa Color Artist: Protobunker Letterers: Christa Miesner and Valeria Lopez Review by Steve J. Ray Some of my favorite comics are those that honor and follow the style of movies and TV shows. Comics like The Batman Adventures , for example. So, you can only Imagine my delight when a knock on my door resulted in my being handed the latest package from Penguin Random House. The box contained a copy of Marvel Action: Avengers : “Off The Clock”. This gorgeous little trade paperback collects issues #1-#3 of Marvel Action: Avengers , and is one of the most fun comics, both in terms of story and art, that I’ve read featuring these particular characters, in a long, long time. Synchronicity Strikes Again Recently I helped promote a couple of fan films which gave us a day, and a night, in the life of a superhero trying to get some time off. By some amazing quirk of fate, this book shows six Avengers (at first… ) trying to cope with some H.R.
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
