Sandman: Sleep of the Just

I’ve been reading comics most of my life, and usually stick with the superhero themed ones, but when Sandman #1 came out, I was hooked. I read each issue, talked about them with a good friend who generally doesn’t read comics at all but enjoyed these, and was constantly surprised and enthralled with where the stories went.

Coming Attractions: Marvel Announcements from SDCC

San Diego Comic Con, SDCC as most call it, is a hugely anticipated fan event. It’s the place where, among other things, a lot of big announcments are made. This year is no expection, and the folks at Marvel did a lot of talking about forthcoming projects. We got some character confirmations, specific release dates…

Doom Patrol: Dead Patrol

Now, they deal with versions of the afterlife, strange magic, really weirdly expressed grief, and get some guest stars from one of the greatest comic book series of all time. “Dead Patrol” is a really busy episode.

Superman and Lois: Worlds War Bizarre

Now, Ally Alston (a very obscure character in the comics) and her cult have managed to put two worlds in grave danger, and the Man of Steel seems to be out of action. Things are looking grim in “Worlds War Bizarre,” the episode before the season finale.

Ms. Marvel: No Normal

Last episode resolved most of the story in Pakistan and the ties to Kamala’s family history, but ended with a major development back in Jersey City. Things get wrapped up, with plenty of surprises along the way, in “No Normal.”

Ms. Marvel: Time and Again

Ms. Marvel has been a fantastic series so far. It’s visually stunning and clever, Iman Vellani is doing wonderfully as the titular hero, and they’re taking time to flesh out the characters and family relationships.
