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

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.
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.
