What I’m Checking for this week 12/8/15

Here are a few things (Comics and TV) I’m checking for this week.

Batman #47:

I’m truly enjoying this current run with BatGordon.   It’s a nice respin on the Batman mythos before the inevitable return to the status quo with Batman vs Superman coming up.

Secret Wars #8:

Just when I thought I was done with Crossovers and Event books, Secret Wars delivered in a major way.  The entire series has been unashamed in its use of spectacle and experimenting with plot-lines.  While the series hasn’t been perfect, it has managed to sate the inner fanboy.

The Winter Finales of The Flash….

This season of the Flash has been incredibly watchable.  While I don’t think it was as good as the First Season, it did expand on some lingering plots and gave us a few new characters to pay attention to.   I like the Multiverse stuff they are teasing but I really hope they are able to tie it to the main story in an effective way.

And Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D:

AOS is the forgotten man when it comes to Comic Book TV but this season has been bananas.  It has truly hit its stride when it comes to hardcore action/espionage and Science Fiction. I can’t hype this show enough.   It’s not even the same show that it was in Season 1.  If you aren’t watching it, you are truly missing out on a substantial serving of asskickery.  

Jessica Jones:

Watch Jessica Jones NOW.  Stop what you are doing and watch it.  Support high quality/high production value programs if you want to see more high quality/high production value programs…even if you are not a fan of the source material. Supporting well written and produced representations of our medium encourages more translations of characters who aren’t in the mainstream.  Nuff Said.
