Graphic Novel Review: Harley Quinn and Power Girl by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti

I liked Harley Quinn in her debut in Batman: The Animated Series, one of the few characters in comics who transitioned well from TV to comic books (and not the other way around). She has become an iconic character and, no disrespect to Margot Robbie’s excellent interpretation of the character in Suicide Squad, all the fans probably hear the voice of actress Arleen Sorkin in their heads.

I really enjoyed that the author didn’t just look at historical contexts, but also at political and social contexts at the time the texts were written.

Book Review: Hiddensee by Gregory Maguire

I did, however, enjoy the structure of the story, much like the old German fairytales many of us grew on.

Graphic Novel Review: Batwoman Volume 6: The Unknowns by Marc Andreyko

The Unknowns are a strange team up, which frankly I enjoyed. Clayface was my new favorite, and The Demon Etrigan is always fun to read. I don’t believe that Batwoman needed a team though, I enjoyed it much more when she was played off as being on the fringes of the Bat family, working alongside them but not with them.
