Since his 1939 debut in the pages of Detective Comics, Batman has become an icon, instantly recognizable the world over.

Young Justice Outsiders 3 ep review

YJO_SDCC_poster.png

Hey O&G fans, the wait is over and Young Justice season 3 is finally here! We first met Young Justice’s team of sidekicks almost ten years ago, they were still side kicks trying to be independant heroes of their own. Young Justice  gave each of its young heroes arcs of personal growth and evolution. The stories made it clear why certain characters simply had to figure out who they were outside of their relationships with the Justice Leaguers.

Now fast forward two years after the REACH Invasion was stopped, the team goes through another change. NightWing takes a break from the team leaving Aqua-Lad (now Aqua Man) to lead the team. The team has added members as well as lost some ( Kid Flash-Dead which resulted in Artimis retiring). The Young team also now shares the watch tower with the rest of the Justice League, giving them access to everything and everyone.

Season 3 starts with an unresolved issue from Season 2, Meta human trafficking. Children are still being abducted and used in experiments to bring out their meta gene, so they can be sold as weapons to the highest bidder. Nightwing  has been investigating and shutting down facilities on his own with help from Oracle, but needs extra help to find the real source.  So he recruits former members of both JLA YJ for his mission.

After the first 3 eps. I feel they are taking this series down a darker path than the first 2 seasons and so far they are doing an awesome job. Betrayal, loss, and minor defeats, each member of the team is being tested. I don’t want give too much away because  it is worth the watch. In the first episode alone you can see more than few side stories developing that are episodes themselves. Overall the series is off to a good start. My next review will be after episode 12 half way through the season to see if it keeps the same pace.

Lenni Reviews: "Watersnakes" by Tony Sandoval

*This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review and is suggested for mature readers

While Mila is out playing, she meets a strange but beautiful girl named Agnes who believes ghosts live in her teeth. As they spend more time together, Mila realizes Agnes is far from a normal girl as otherworldly forces spill into Mila's life.

This is what I was expecting from Likely Stories; a trippy, thrilling, scary, bloody, fantastic fantasy story that's beautiful to look at. The art takes some getting used to but if you can appreciate the likes of Roman Dirge or Dave McKean, this will be a treat to read through. If you like dark fantasy where fairy tale nightmares bleed into real life, this is a cool book to read and I'd like to see more from this creator. 4.7 out of 5.

Press Release

Cable has fallen, and the events of Extermination have left a hole in the X-Men family. What comes next??

In the wake of Cable’s death, his adopted daughter Hope Summers is attempting to deal with her loss – but a dark and terrifying path beckons her, and the X-Men’s own Jean Grey may be her only hope for survival!

This December, CABLE creative team Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler re-team for a special one-shot to say good-bye to the time-traveling, fan-favorite mutant – featuring covers by Geoff Shaw and a special back-up story that celebrates the life of Nathan Summers, from legendary X-Men series writer Chris Claremont! 

“This issue is our chance to say a proper farewell to Cable, to honor his legacy, and to really see the immense impact the time travelling mutant had on those closest to him,” said Nadler. “Most importantly, it's about how the Summers family copes with grief, and the difficulty of forging ahead. The issue is packed with fan favorite X-Men from all different eras, and we're super excited to be bringing them together, despite the somber occasion.”

Don’t miss the X-Men story everyone will be talking about – X-MEN: THE EXTERMINATED #1 arrives in comic shops this December!
