Week 43 2013 | Part 4 | Comic Reviews


By: Cynthia A. Justice League #24 Forever Strong The origin of Ultraman!  Oh but first, isn’t that an awesome cover?  I thought so. Anyway!  All right, so here we really got to see just how opposite Earth 3 really is, from beginning to end.  Not only was his upbringing different, both pair of his parents were completely different than everything on Earth 1.  It was certainly illuminating how that world turned out and showed us more about Ultraman and why he sniffs []

By:Cynthia A. Genre: Supernatural drama, Horror, Fantasy Starring: Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Daniella Pineda, Leah Pipes & Danielle Campbell “Sinners and Saints”:  That was a good episode that actually made me feel for Devina for once.  Not only that, it took away whatever sympathy I had for the Witche’s and as for Elijah, god how I missed him.  It seems to me that the originals, well Klaus and Elijah, are finding women in their lives []

Week 43 2013 | Part 3 | Comic Reviews


By: Cynthia A. Supergirl #24 Death Becomes Her Talk about power.  Supergirl was rocking it in this issue.  She was amazing.  In the collective, she took control over them, she took control over the collective.  She took over the collective and sought out Cyborg Superman, who just happened to be her father.  That was certainly an unexpected twist.  And while he is trying to give his daughter back his body and return to being half of a being, Brianiac is attacking the []

By: Cynthia A. Genre: Crime drama Starring: James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Egg  old, Ilfenesh Hadera, Parminder Nagra & Harry Lennix “Gina Zanetakos”: Oh my God that was great episode.  I have to quote Robert Bianco of USA Today: “The Blacklist is a solid weekly crime show built around a genuine TV star.” James Spader steals the show week after week, his character is captivating and his subplots build such an mystery and build the intrigue wondering keeping the viewer wondering []

Week 43 2013 | Part 2 | Comic Reviews


By: Cynthia A. The Flash #24 Reverse Conclusion Other than the writing, the best part of this comic is the artwork.  The angular finishes make it look so animated, so full of life, something we need in the comic book world.  Although it is only a comic book, the narrative and way the artwork flows from page to page make it seem as though I am watching a Saturday morning cartoon.  The dialogue is good, and the narrative, both bring to life []
