5 Fandom Friday: Funko POP!

I can only imagine collecting Funko POP! figures would be a very, very slippery slope for me.  For one thing, I have very limited storage-display space in my home.  For another thing, they’re all so cute!  This year, they’re rolling

Batgirl 38: Backsliding

Don’t be fooled by the shy, demure girl on the cover who’s apparently afraid to ride the subway.  In this issue, Batgirl does a complete 180 from badass to Bad Guy. But first, let’s talk about the good things. Even

Wonder Woman: Rescue Angel

A friend recently tipped me off that issue #19 of Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman, “Rescue Angel part 1 of 1,” was right up my alley and not to be missed.  Wonder Woman?  Really?  I was quite sceptical, but this

What's the Secret? Secret Six is Back!

Yes, fan-favourite Secret Six has been rebooted.  What does this mean?  Well, seems that it means that all those characters you knew and loved and wanted to see more of are…. Gone.  That arc is done.  No more Deadshot, no

5 Fandom Friday: Fandom Resolutions

I’m not like, 100% sure what a “fandom resolution” is yet, so I may be wayyy off base here in my list, but I’m also really excited to see how everyone else interpreted the prompt!  On with the Five! 1.

Batgirl #37: Gaga for Banksy

I’m gonna say it, I think Batgirl #37 was the best Burnside Batgirl issue yet!  You know that saying, don’t judge a book by its cover?  That absolutely applies here.  The first few pages are definitely…a little off-putting.  Selfie!  Kawaii!

Batman: Endgame

Confession:  I’m getting kind of tired of the Joker. I got through Death of the Family but just barely:  those rambling romantic Batman/Joker dialogues nearly lost me forever.  But when a friend tipped me off that Batman:  Endgame was going
