Since his inception in 1973 by comics’ legend Jack Kirby, Klarion the Witch-boy has been a servant (or a lord) of chaos. It’s only appropriate that his New 52 debut be reasonably chaotic, but Klarion #1 could do with a little fine-tuning and straight-lacing.
Maura totally kicks ass in ”Wedge” and “The Wilderness” as she becomes more confident about who she is among her family as well as in public spaces, and the negotiation between public and private selves and the concern for public reputation drives a lot of the action in these episodes.
Trigger Warnings: suicide
Case of the Week:
Marren Trudeau (Elizabeth Perkins from Weeds) has been accused of insider trading after a video surfaced with her making out with the CEO of the other company: “Pay attention folks, this is what Pilates can do for you.”
I’m laughing, but I don’t really like her. I’m not a fan of all these unsympathetic clients.
The mom from last week was so boring, and the killer-husband from episode two was just creepy.
Interesting times are coming to the South.
A strong proponent of Conservative, Biblically-led Legislation, South Carolina has long been a bastion of Old South ideals and behaviors. However, the last three months have seen a decided shift in the direction of progress.
In my corner of the globe, we’ve been making our way into fall, as I’ve begun to see students huddling over their pumpkin spice lattes on every corner of my campus. The comics, too, are dropping like leaves, as we’ll be taking a look at Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man 6, Ms. Marvel 9, and Storm 4 this week!

I loved watching this!!!!
This week, The Flash delivers a second episode that’s even stronger than the pilot. This ain’t a perfect show, but it’s getting a lot of things right.
Like the pilot, “Fastest Man Alive,” starts with an “intro thingy” voiceover from Barry. Like, he literally calls it an “intro thingy.” This is light, irreverent stuff – hitting exactly the right tone for a Flash TV show.
The dialogue scenes between Barry and Joe – and between Barry, Caitlin, Cisco, and Wells – are tight, snappy, and a pleasure to watch.
I really love that this is a superhero story that isn’t afraid to keep things light and fluffy. The Flash has flaws, but its commitment to this tone is not one of them. And, if it keeps this up, I think the show’s greatest legacy may be proving that a hero doesn’t have to be grimdark and tortured to be entertaining and interesting.
Mary Lambert’s much anticipated full-length album, Heart On My Sleeve, is finally out, and it is everything we could have hoped it would be and more.
Heart On My Sleeve is aptly named, as Lambert refuses to shy away from her emotions, her secrets, and the harder parts of living as a lesbian in a society that still treats gender and sexual minorities as inferior.
