Something For The Weekend: A Round Up Of Reviews, Previews, News And More

by Olly MacNamee

Another week has flown by and we’re well into the weekend by now. So, why not pause, take a break and catch up on some of the more popular posts from the past week of comic book, film, TV and game news, reviews, previews and more in your weekly ten to takeaway?

  1. Last weekend we covered the second day of online interviews and news coming out of DC FanDome, with a number of announcements catching the interest of you, our readers. For example, Chicago P.D. veteran Lisseth Chavez joining the cast of The Legends of Tomorrow, which you can read all about here.
  2. Also in TV news, we had the Batwoman panel, which Benjamin Hall reported upon here.
  3. DC FanDome also presented the world premier of the Creative Coalition’s adaption of the Superman Radio Show of the 1940s. Check it out here.
  4. One of the big titles out this week had to be Detective Comics #1027 celebrating Batman’s… 999th appearance? Someone got their sums wrong over at DC Comics, but it didn’t stop you from enjoying our preview of the issue here.
  5. We’ve been fortunate enough over the past few weeks to have exclusive previews of Dynamite Comics weekly releases, and the new James Bond anthology, James Bond: Reflections of Death, was a popular exclusive preview from earlier in the week, and which you can catch again here.
  6. One last preview and then we’ll move on. But it wouldn’t be the same without Richard Bruton’s weekly deep dive into 2000AD that we post each and every Monday afternoon. Check up on the galaxy’s greatest comic here.
  7. Bill and Ted returned to comics this past week with Dark Horse’s Bill and Ted Are Doomed #1 by Evan Dorkin and Roger Langridge reviewed by our regular reviewer Brendan M. Allen here.
  8. Billionaire Island #6 saw the conclusion to this darkly satirical comic book series from Mark Russell and Steve Pugh, which you can read here.
  9. Bad Idea stealth dropped their first comic, The Hero Trade #1, last week. We managed to get the news out ahead of new comic book day, which you can read about here.
  10. Finally, and to keep you entertained, we have the latest edition of our very own Tito W. James’ Listen To My Art podcast which you can listen to at your leisure here.

That’s it, so enjoy the weekend and stay well and stay safe. We’re definitely not out of the woods yet.
