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.

*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.

Nicotero, an award-winning executive producer, director, and make-up special effects creator on THE WALKING DEAD has come on board, with his company KNB EFX, to create the new Spawn design for the upcoming McFarlane/ Blumhouse Spawn feature film.

“I'm a long-time fan of Greg’s work and the projects his company, KNB have done throughout the years,” said McFarlane “Working with him once again, to re-invent the Spawn 'look' so it will match the supernatural theme in the movie, is going to be a fun process.”

*This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review.
After her mother's death, Marjorie is holding down the family laundromat all by herself and raising her little brother as her father is still mired in his grief. She has typical outsider problems at school but she also has to deal with the conniving Nigel; who is after the laundromat to demolish the building and replace it with a resort. Feeling disconnected and helpless, things change for Marjorie when a ghost named Wendell sneaks into her shop.
This is a beautiful story about a young woman dealing with loss the best way she can. The laundromat is a perfect setting after such a deep shock since, after the death of a loved one, you do feel like you're spinning and being tossed about beyond your control; feeling transparent and lost, just floating through life.
Not too much time is spent on the "mean girls" schtick, as that can get old real fast. The idea of ghosts being actual sheets could be stupid if not for the amazing art. The whole book is in such a soothing palate, it's a pleasure to the eyes. Wendell and his friends are delightful as well but if I had to nitpick (and of course I do) this is another of those awesome graphic novels that feels like it ended too soon. I wanted to know more about everyone; even that dipshit Nigel: He of the Punchable Face.
Also, and this is spoiler territory here, something about the ending didn't quite sit right with me. SPOILERSSS!!!
Marjorie starts using Ghosturizer - basically ghost detergent/stain remover - to save her failing business, which seems a bit exploitive to me. I get that do misadventures it was Wendell's fault in part that Marjorie got into some extra trouble but unfettered access to otherworldly cleaning products? Seems highly suspect.
Other than that, awesome book. It's meant for kids but I recommend to anyone who needs a daily dose of DAWWWW!! 4 out of 5.

Valiant is proud to present your first look at the covers for HARBINGER WARS 2 #4 (of 4) – an unstoppable pulse-pounding climax in the SEISMIC SIX-PART CROSSOVER EVENT that will wreak havoc across the landscape of the Valiant Universe! On August 29th, it all ends here as Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR, ETERNITY) and superstar artist Tómas Giorello (X-O MANOWAR) bring the cataclysmic showdown to an unforgettable, heart-stopping conclusion… and when the dust settles, nothing will be the same!
We called it the biggest, most impactful, most ambitious Valiant event ever attempted – and we meant it! From across the Valiant Universe, the paths of all of the world's most formidable heroes – X-O Manowar, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, Ninjak, the Secret Weapons, H.A.R.D. Corps, and dozens of newly activated psiots – have finally converged, drawn together by their old ally Livewire's last-ditch effort to protect the powerless.
Now, the long-brewing battle between Valiant's greatest icons will finally reach the stratosphere – literally – and, out of the ashes, a new order for the Valiant Universe will be hewn as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and comics juggernaut Tomás Giorello present the MUST-READ comics showdown of 2018! On August 29th, no one gets out unscathed in HARBINGER WARS 2 #4 – featuring covers by J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA), Felipe Massafera (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern)!
But first! Jump on board the astonishing first issue of HARBINGER WARS 2 when it descends on comic book stores everywhere this month on May 30th! This summer, the most anticipated event in Valiant’s publication history begins in full force as Matt Kindt and Tomás Giorello crack the Valiant Universe in two in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4)!
For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us – with the potential to be activated at any moment – has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…
Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.
In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Stanchek, is leading his band of Renegades across the country, activating any potential psiots willing to join them, and building an insurrection force of ultra-powerful and unwieldy new abilities that will soon bring war to Omen’s doorstep…and the unstoppable force known as X-O Manowar raging back to Earth.
In the West, Livewire – the telekinetic technopath with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will – will be forced to choose between her former allies…or her newfound team of Secret Weapons. As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one-time teammate – and setting the stage for the most shocking, most violent, and most consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!
On May 30th, master storytellers Matt Kindt and Tomás Giorello offer up an unprecedented collision of Valiant heroes as X-O Manowar, Livewire, the Harbinger Renegades, Bloodshot, the Secret Weapons, Ninjak, and a cast of thousands draw their battle lines in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by J.G. Jones(Wanted), Mico Suayan (MOON KNIGHT), Juan José Ryp (NINJA-K), Felipe Massafera (Flashpoint: Abin Sur), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT SALVATION)!
*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
One night, an owl spies the ghost of a young girl skipping across the swamp and goes to investigate. Despite the advice of his fellow owls, he decides to help the lost ghost figure out why she is lost and the mystery of how she died.
Despite being predictable, this is a beautifully drawn, sweet story. The art is a treat for the eyes; soft and flowing when it needs to be and crisp and scary when it needs to be. The detail is fantastic so, even though this is a pretty standard 'find out why the ghost died so they can move on' story, it's so pretty, it should be seen.
The ending is a bit abrupt and I would say this is too dark for very young kids but I enjoyed it and give it a 3.9 out of 5!
