DC Recap Round-Up 2, Week 13: Double Your Flash, Double Your Black Lightning!

27 Feb

Welcome back! So thanks to Supergirl being off until March (we’ll get to the one episode that aired this month next time), it seemed like a great time to double up on the reviews of shows still running new episodes right now: The Flash and Black Lightning. We got plenty of twists and turns to cover in both, so let’s get to it… Continue reading

As Long As I Don’t Wear Tights or Spandex, Issue 10 — THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY

23 Feb

THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba (Dark Horse / collected)

I was not the biggest My Chemical Romance fan, but I knew enough about them and liked enough of their music to note around 2007 the news that one of the band’s main talent, Gerard Way, was going to be writing a comic book. It’s not unusual to have celebrities writing comics, but in 99 out of 100 cases, it tends to be someone else doing the writing as a surrogate for said celebrity. But I was intrigued enough to pick up the first issue of that series, The Umbrella Academy, and by the end, I was hooked. By the end of its original mini-series run, I was all in to anything Umbrella Academy. Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×13, “Star City Slayer” recap

13 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads! When last we left our heroes, the Team got officially deputized as cops, which solves a lot of that pesky anti-vigilante stuff, right? Well we still got issues to deal with, like William being all sulky after coming home from boarding school, which we discover he got expelled from. And we also have someone stalking our heroes, leaving them threatening notes, but nothing truly horrifying happening…yet. In the future, Mia (the woman also known as “Blackstar”) takes a friend, Connor Hawke (also known as John Diggle’s son) to find the old Arrow Bunker for some reason. Now that we got that catch-up out the way, let’s get to the recap proper… Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 2, Week 12: Thanks For (Erasing) The Memories!

12 Feb

Welcome back! We still got a decent lineup of shows to cover today, like Supergirl, The Flash, and Black Lightning, but we also got a brief chat about the recent season finale of Titans, which…I have issues with. But before we get to throwing that shade, let’s get to the recaps! Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×12, “Emerald Archer” recap

5 Feb

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’ll get to the cake and drinks eventually (SPOILERS: there is no cake), but first, let’s recap things so far. Ollie is now officially working with the Star City Police Department, and while in that precarious position, contending with the discovery of a half-sister, Emiko, who has taken on the Green Arrow look for her little mission of revenge. But where does this leave the rest of the ex-Team Arrow members? And how does all of this play into a future where Star City has gone to crap? Well, let’s jump into this 150th episode and find out… Continue reading
