**NON SPOILERS AND SCORE AT THE BOTTOM**

After twelve years of New York City public education, I think we got up to the 1960s once. Mind you, for many of those years I wasn’t studying modern American history, being that playing with blocks and learning to add single-digit numbers took precedence. Still, from at least seventh to twelfth grade, I took what was essentially the same history class over and over: beginning with the American Revolution (being the most important fixed point in world history, naturally) we would work our way through the War of 1812, then the Civil War, then the Spanish-American War and World War I, then a little cultural history about Prohibition (and, if the teacher was cool, gangsters), then World War II and the Korean War and—like I say, this only happened once—then we would discuss the French war with Indochina, which of course becomes our Vietnam War about a decade later. All those years learning the same thing, and we only came to something that even affected our generation in a palpable way the one time. Not to mention this real preponderance on wars! Luckily, I found a book titled the Epic of New York City by Edward Robb Ellis that showed me history could be an engaging story, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Indeed, Ellis wrote two books about the American homefront during the World Wars, something I would personally have found more interesting than the obsessive charting of military maneuvers, titled A Nation in Torment and Echoes of a Distant Thunder (for WWI and II, respectively) that are worth checking out. If you want to learn about the the action from World War II, then read DC Comics’ Bombshells, which I did as can be proven if you read on!

Top 5 Fridays: Top 5 Mystical Heroes



Welcome back to another mystical addition of Top-5 Friday! Do you want to know what I think is dying out in comics? Magic. It feels like each year, the list of magical heroes continues to shrink. We had an entire team of mystic heroes, who have vanished at this point in the DC universe. There are a few exceptions to this, such as John Constantine and the enchantments on Wonder Woman, but I felt today I should take some time to tell you some of my favorite mystical heroes. The rules for this list are that their powers or origin have to have magical elements in some nature. As always this is an opinion based list, so if you see something you don't like, I apologize. Enough talk! Grab your spell books and ritual candles and let's start this list.

EARLY PREVIEW: Shade the Changing Girl #1




Written By: Cecil Castellucci
Art By: Marley Zarcone, Kelly Fitzpatrick
Lettered By: Saida Temofonte
Cover Price: $3.99
On Sale Date: October 5, 2016

There’s no such thing as a little bit of madness.

Far away on the planet Meta, Loma’s going nowhere fast. She’s dropped out of school, dumped her boyfriend, and is bored out of her mind.  She longs to feel things. That’s where her idol, the lunatic poet Rac Shade, and his infamous madness coat come it. Loma steals the garment and makes a break across galaxies to take up residence in a new body: Earth girl Megan Boyer. Surely everything will be better on this passionate primitive planet with a dash of madness on her side and this human girl’s easy life. Only now that she’s here, Loma discovers being a teenaged Earth girl comes with its own challenges and Earth may not be everything she thought it’d be. Megan Boyer was a bully whom everyone was glad was almost dead, and now Loma has to survive High School and navigate the consequences of the life she didn’t live with the ever-growing and uncontrollable madness at her side. Not to mention that there are people back on her homeworld who might just want Shade’s coat back.

Written by Cecil Castellucci (THE PLAIN JANES, Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure), drawn by Marley Zarcone (EFFIGY) and overseen by Gerard Way, SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL starts a whole new chapter in the story of one of comics’ most unique series. 

You know I'm psyched for this and all of the other weird titles in the pop-up Young Animals imprint! Read more to see some early preview pages from issue #1!

Wonder Woman ’77 chapter 26 Review and **SPOILERS**



Soyuz, Say Me, Say It Together

Written By: Amanda Deibert
Art By: Christian Duce, Wendy Broome
Lettered By: Wes Abbott
Digital Price: $0.99
On Sale Date: September 8, 2016

**NON SPOILERS AND SCORE AT THE BOTTOM**

Man, space used to be really be the Final Frontier, with brave men and women risking their lives to learn even one more iota about the inky blackness beyond out troposphere. Now, it’s like periodic updates from various robots that are about as exciting as blood test results. “Hey, we found a planet that might have a fern on it, a mere skillion billion light years away!” Great. NASA could be making it all up, how would we know? “We found the Millennium Falcon!” See, there’s the kind of discovery that gets people involved. And would it kill you to give one of these space robots a foppish demeanor and British accent like C3PO? I’m just spitballing here. Point is that the whole endeavor needs a shot in the arm, because space exploration doesn’t carry the unique cache it once did. For instance, in 1977, it was still a pretty hot ticket, and in this chapter Wonder Woman gets involved! Read on to learn more about it…this digital chapter, that is. Not space.

DC Comics Best Covers of the Week 09/07/16


Heck of a week for comic books, don't you think? And you know what comes with comic books? Covers! That's right, one cover per single issue, and that's included in the price? These comics publishers don't know what they're doing! They're practically giving away gorgeous artwork along with a full story. Which, incidentally, is illustrated too! I hope these comic book people never open an art gallery, they'd give away the best paintings and have to close down in a month! But so long as they're casting off beautiful artwork like so much flotsam, there's no reason I shouldn't capitalize on this oversight and let you know which are the best of the week!

Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five Chapter #38 Review



This is the...?

Written by: Brian Buccellato
Art by: Marco Santucci, Rex Lokus and Wes Abbott
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: September 6, 2016

Last chapter of Injustice was so damn good as we got to take a peek at the Earth-1 Universe and a whole bunch of heroes that are gone, but not forgotten in the Injustice one.  It was so nice to see Oliver Queen, Dick Grayson and even the Joker one more time, but we all know it was the calm before the storm that is the ending of this series.  How long will the calm last?  Can we see just one last pool party?  Let's find out...


Batman Beyond #16 Review and *SPOILERS*



....... Just Like New Coke


Written By: Dan Jurgens
Art By: Stephen Thompson, Lisa Jackson, Dave Sharpe
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

*Non Spoilers and Score At The Bottom*

After dealing with all of Futures End, Brother Eye, Dr. Cuvier and a psychotic Terry McGinnis, it looks like Tim Drake's time travel adventures are finally coming to an end............ and since I wasn't really a fan of seeing Tim getting his ass kicked over and over again in a strange place and time, I can't wait for Rebirth to come along and show us what Batman Beyond is supposed to be like...... I still don't even know what Tuftan was doing in this series, but it doesn't matter anymore because it won't be brought up here and thankfully, it's finally over.  In our previous issue we saw all our major players finding out that Terry McGinnis is still alive and in the guise of Rewire, but it's not all RC Cola and Pinatas because Spellbinder gets inside of Barbara Gordon's mind as well as Terry's and because Terry has a mental connection to the Batman suit.......... well, we saw Tim Drake get his ass kicked again.  Let's jump into this issue and see how everything ends and if Tim Drake can open up his own can of whoop ass before he walks off into the sunset.  Let's check it out.

Superman #6 Review and *SPOILERS*



Chip Off The Old Block


Written By: Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason
Art By: Patrick Gleason, Mick Gray, John Kalisz, Rob Leigh
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

*Non Spoilers and Score At The Bottom*

It's time to see the Eradicator get his ass kicked and boy is it about time.  Yeah, I loved seeing all the father/son stuff with Superman and Jon, but everything with the Eradicator came off weird as hell and I've really just been waiting for the whole ass kicking thing so we could get back to seeing more of the Superman family.......... Yeah, I know we need some kind of drama to keep the story going, but from reading Superman: Lois and Clark and the first two issues of this story arc, I found that I really just love seeing the family element....... which is the most interesting part of this series so far in my mind.  Before we hopefully get back to all that heart and whatnot, let's head back to the moon, where Superman has just stolen Eradicator's power by absorbing all the souls of Krypton into himself.  Let's check it out.

Everafter: From the Pages of Fables #1 Review


He Needed the Money

Written by: Dave Justus and Matthew Sturges
Art by: Travis Moore, Michael Wiggan and Todd Klein
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016


My only foray into the world of Fables was the Vertigo/Dc Digital First book, Fables: The Wolf Among Us which I enjoyed quite a bit.  Nowadays, the whole Fables concept is no longer new and there are so many variations that you can take your pick which one is your favorite (mine being the Sisters Grimm books).  The thing I like best about the comics, however, is the more mature and adult nature of the whole thing.  The Wolf Among Us was not a book for the young ones and with the same team on this one, I expect the same.  So, is that the case and is it any good?  Let's find out...


Bloodlines #6 Review and **SPOILERS**



We’re the Bloodlines Gang and We Take No Guff!

Written By: J.T. Krul
Art By: V. Ken Marion, Sean Parsons, Andrew Dalhouse
Lettered By: Sal Cipriano
Cover Price: $2.99
On Sale Date: September 7, 2016

**NON SPOILERS AND SCORE AT THE BOTTOM**

Why are there so many songs about Bloodlines
And the alien leeches on our spines?
They give us powers
But they slowly devour
Our brains, we commit violent crimes
So we've been told
And some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see
Some day we'll find it
The Bloodlines Connection
The killers, the dreamers, and me!

Nightwing #4 Review and *SPOILERS*



The Long Game Sure is Short


Written By: Tim Seeley
Art By: Javier Fernandez, Chris Sotomayor, Carlos M. Mangual
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

*Non Spoilers and Score At The Bottom*

Just when I was really starting to get behind this new status quo for our hero, it turns out that this is the last issue to the whole Parliament of Owls shebang!  I mean, it was I think just two issues ago when Nightwing was talking to Raptor about playing the long game to take down the Owls.......... and apparently they've played long enough...... Weird.  So yeah, with Nightwing crossing some lines to get the trust of his new employers, I guess he figures there's no time like the present to tender his resignation and hopefully get back to the whole hero thing.  Let's jump into this issue and see what Dick and Raptor do with the blueprints to the Labyrinth and what kind of info they can get about the book of wisdom from Doctor Leviticus.  Let's check it out.

Harley Quinn #3 Review and **SPOILERS**

My mom spent a lot of time raising her kids on the same movies she watched as a child. Since she recalled fondly the 1950s double feature monster flicks and Friday night Depression-era B-rolls, most of the movies I saw were what some esteemed film critics would insightfully call “crap.” And yet, even in this crap, there were some sparkling peanuts and niblets of corn, as with George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, considered the grand daddy of the modern zombie movie. It’s a low-budget affair, for sure, in a grainy black and white film that belies its 1960s production. Plainly described, it’s about a bunch of hysterical people trapped in a house, looking more like a theater production than a motion picture. And yet within these “limitations,” Romero creates a sense of immediate dread and hysteria, even while tackling some serious social issues—that persist until today. I should say no more! If you haven’t seen it, you should watch it. And if you have seen it, let me know what you think of it in the comments. I wonder how many find the movie “silly” today, and yet have come here to read my review of Harley Quinn #3, possibly the silliest comic book on the stands!

Aquaman #6 Review and **SPOILERS**

Cyborg: Rebirth #1 Review and *SPOILERS*



Restarting The System


Written By: John Semper Jr.

Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

*Non Spoilers and Score At The Bottom*

Okay Cyborg, what do you have for me this time?  I mean, I love Cyborg, but it seems that all he did in the New 52 and DCYou was hack something or get hacked by something....... and I understand that we have ourselves a living computer as a character here, but isn't there more to Vic Stone?........ You know, besides for all the daddy issues that is.  Hopefully we find out here if this new series is up to the task of giving Cyborg a little more character than he's had over the past couple of years and if he'll be pitted against something that requires more than some super hacker-y.  Let's jump into this issue and see what Rebirth has in store for us.

Justice League #4 Review


Rebirth This Rebirth

Written by: Bryan Hitch
Art by: Jesus Merino, Andy Owens, Tomeu Morey, and Richard Starkings
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

I don't think it would surprise anyone to find out that in general, I have not been enjoying Justice League since Rebirth.  I have a full list of reasons that I will not go into, but instead will try to stay focused on the positives...at least for this intro.  The art in this book has been pretty solid lately and the inclusion of the Green Lanterns (Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz) and Pre-Flashpoint Superman gives the book a different dynamic than we've had in years.  That's about it for the positives as far as I'm concerned so I am just going to get on with the review.  Is this the issue that turns it all around and shows that Bryan Hitch had a great story going right under our noses all this time?  Let's find out...


Supergirl #1 Review



Parents Just Don't Understand

Written by: Steve Orlando
Art by: Brian Ching, Michael Atiyeh and Steve Wands
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016


I was not a huge fan of the Supergirl Rebirth issue, but I am still looking forward to a good run by Steve Orlando and company.  The thing I want the most is seeing Kara head to high school and all the craziness that brings about.  Of course, there is also that whole Cyborg Superman thing looming in the background and that's enough to get me fired up as well.  So, let's stop talking and let's get on with my review of Supergirl #1. 


Green Arrow #6 Review


Fight to Survive!

Written by: Benjamin Percy
Art by: Stephen Byrne and Nate Piekos
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016


I was really looking forward to seeing Ollie on the Island after the end of last issue ("not again", ha ha ha!), but it looks like we are taking a detour to deal with Emiko, Shado and this Sins of the Mother story arc.  While I am a big fan of Emiko, I can't really say I am any bit of a Shado guy so I must tell you that I am a little worried going in.  Ben Percy has done me good so far in Rebirth, however, so i am going to wait to pass judgement, but that's kind of par for the course as a comic book reviewer.  At least, that's how it's supposed to go, right?  Enough about me and my rules, though, let's get on with the review...


Flintstones #3 Review and **SPOILERS**



How the Town of Bedrock Got Tough On Immigration

Written By: Mark Russell
Art By: Steve Pugh, Chris Chuckry
Lettered By: Dave Sharpe
Cover Price: $3.99
On Sale Date: September 7, 2016

**NON SPOILERS AND SCORE AT THE BOTTOM**

Now that the Flintstones is an accepted part of DC Comics continuity because I said so, I wonder what Bizarro Flintstones would be like? I mean, the characters in the Flintstones are basically unusually-articulate and advanced cave people, so would Bizarro Flintstones just be regular, heavy-browed Cro-Magnons? Or would they just be like the regular Flintstones, but with everything reversed? You keep following that line of thought, eventually you have Fred playing Stone Age records on his face while pterodactyls sip soft drinks and relax on a couch made of granite. And that’s when you’d have lost the plot, for while I can entertain a civilization of prehistoric human beings that watched a television hewn from rock and rode around in cars powered by running, I can’t abide by the thought that dinosaurs did the same. That’s just the height of ridiculousness. Luckily, the Flintstones comic never gets that silly, as you’ll learn if you read my review of issue #3! Not the mama.

Batman #6 Review


Crazy? Insane?

Written by: Tom King
Art by: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Oclair Albert, Scott Hanna, Marcelo Maiolo and Deron Bennett
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

The Weird Science Get Fresh Crew has a joke that if Eric ever gives a book a perfect score, we will
close up shop and start doing something else...like become a world famous song and dance team.  I, on the other hand, will give out a 10/10 to a comic that blows my mind, but I agree with Eric when he asks, "Where do you go from there?"  Well, Batman #5 blew my mind, I gave it a perfect score and now that issue #6 is here, I'm worried I might have painted myself into a corner.  What if I like this issue even more?  What if something in this issue sheds new light on the last?  Maybe Eric is right and I should start working on my "Me and My Shadow" routine.  Before I go to such extremes, I will at least read and review this issue.  How was it?  Let's find out...

PREVIEW: Everafter: From the Pages of Fables #1



Written by: Dave Justus and Matthew Sturges
Art by: Travis Moore, Michael Wiggan and Todd Klein
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

From the team that brought you FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US comes a new chapter of the FABLES legacy! In a post-Fables world where magic abounds, it can be wielded for the greater good or used to plant the seeds of anarchy and terrorism. The Shadow Players are a global network of agents—both Fable and mundane—tasked with policing a newly enchanted world and protecting humanity from itself. EVERAFTER features the return of series favorites Bo Peep, Peter Piper, Hansel, and Connor Wolf, as well as exciting new characters and a terrifying new villain! Written by FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US veterans Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus with gorgeous art by Travis Moore (Fables: The Wolf Among Us, JLA All Stars), you won’t want to miss this series that FABLES creator Bill Willingham himself told us we had to get into your hands as quickly as possible! 

Now that's a solicit for ya!  I wonder if the guy who wrote it was getting paid by the word.  Anywho, I am always up for a new book and I really enjoyed Justus and Sturges Fables: The Wolf Among us digital series so I will be reviewing this book.  Check out the preview and meet me back on Wednesday for my review.


PREVIEW: Batman Beyond #16




Written By: Dan Jurgens
Art By: Stephen Thompson, Lisa Jackson, Dave Sharpe
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016



With the threat of Spellbinder behind them, Tim Drake and Terry McGinnis face an uncertain future. It’s time to rebuild New Gotham, but who will wear the mantle of the city’s defender? This is the biggest turning point in the series to date and sets the stage for BATMAN BEYOND: REBIRTH #1, also solicited this month. 
FINAL ISSUE
Well, it's finally happened.  Batman Beyond is at its final issue and we can soon look forward to a this title being Rebirth-ed and hopefully getting some of the legacy back that made this character as popular as he is.  I know I'm looking forward to that, I just don't know how the damage inflicted on this series by Futures End can be fixed at this point.

PREVIEW: Green Arrow #6



Written by: Benjamin Percy
Art by: Stephen Byrne and Nate Piekos
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

“SINS OF THE MOTHER”! Following the shocking events with the Ninth Circle, Green Arrow’s wayward sister/sidekick Emiko travels to Japan on a quest to destroy the crime lords who control her mother, Shado, the assassin who murdered Oliver Queen.

Sins of the Mother, huh?  Are any of those sins making an 8 year old boy who is scared of everything, watch the Amityville Horror?  Or to a lesser degree, Salem's Lot?  What about being such a horrible cook that this grown up boy can only eat things the shitty way she used to cook them?  These are sins, you know!  These are the Sins of my Mother!!!!!!


PREVIEW: Nightwing #4




Written By: Tim Seeley
Art By: Javier Fernandez, Chris Sotomayor, Carlos M. Mangual
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016


“BETTER THAN BATMAN” part 4! At last, Nightwing and Raptor enact their endgame to shut down the Parliament of Owls permanently! But the Parliament has one last card up its sleeves: The Moloch, a giant owl monster whose mission is simple: eviscerate Nightwing and Raptor.

I don't know if it's just because it seems like a big ass undertaking, but I never imagined that Nightwing and Raptor would try to take down the Parliament of Owls so damn quick.  I don't know if the solicit is is getting a little over zealous or not, but this certainly seems like a book worth reading.

PREVIEW: Supergirl #1



Written by: Steve Orlando
Art by: Brian Ching, Michael Atiyeh and Steve Wands
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: September 7, 2016

“REIGN OF THE CYBORG SUPERMAN” part one! Supergirl is back and working for the DEO to defend National City! As Kara Danvers, average American teenager and high school student, Supergirl must balance her life as a superhero with her new life on Earth. But some demons from her Kryptonian past are coming back to haunt her, and Kara will find herself face-to-face with her father: the sinister Cyborg Superman!

I want as much Supergirl in high school as I can get and it looks like we will certainly get that!  That and the art style makes this book look like so much fun!  Let's keep our fingers crossed...
