Tom King’s Upcoming Batman/Catwoman Maxiseries From The Perspective Of A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan

It has been a wild week for me this week. Not just because AT&T removed DC co-publisher Dan DiDio from his position yesterday (seemingly as part of a restructuring effort to align DC with AT&T’s multimedia platform with more emphasis on franchising and branding), but also because Batman/Catwoman writer Tom King dropped another tease bomb this week that caused my Twitter feed to blow up.

It's Valentine's Day today, and the female-led Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (also known as Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey at some cinemas) has now been out for a whole week. While I originally intended to see the film today for the special occasion, I also had a bad day at the office last Thursday (long story) that I told myself I deserved to treat myself to something nice. I therefore decided to watch the film on opening night instead, and as for having a good time, the film does deliver on that front. (I'm actually going to go see it again at the cinema after work tonight.)

DC FCBD 2020: Generation Zero The Next Milestone To Earth-5G

DC Announced their 'Top Secret' Gold Book for FCBD 2020 today, Generation Zero, which will be the next milestone on the road to the upcoming Earth-5G.

Without revealing too much, the story is going to centre on Wally West, who will essentially be functioning in a similar capacity to Power Girl in Infinite Crisis and Barry Allen in Flashpoint. In the story, Wally will get a glimpse of the DC Multiverse's past, present, and future, and will get the opportunity to reshape it.

The Huntress: Origins vs Huntress: Darknight Daughter: The New, The Old, And The Different

The Huntress: Origins has been on sale for two weeks now, which means it's time to finally talk about the final product now that most of us have the book in hand. There's a lot I love about the new book, some of which I feel is actually an improvement over the original Huntress: Darknight Daughter print from 2006, and some that I wish had been done better than the original book.

While I won't review the individual stories featured in the book as I already reviewed them all on this blog over the span of seven years (yeah, it's been that long), I will, however, be reviewing the book as a product, beginning with the cover design, the interior graphic design, the print and paper quality, and of course, the bonus material.
