Catwoman #39: “Better Than He Does Himself”
Catwoman #39: "Better Than He Does Himself"Or: the one in which Selina Kyle confirms a rumor. This is an important issue plotwise: It’s the one in which Selina has to decide if she’s going to war against an ever-more-powerful enemy; it’s the one in which she has to sit down in the all-neon diner that Drive forgot and decide if she can even believe she has a brother, much less anything he says.…
Sleepy Hollow: “Tempus Fugit”
Sleepy Hollow: "Tempus Fugit"And so, the second season of Sleepy Hollow comes to a much brighter end than expected, given the rest of the second season; the reverse-pilot played with the beats that worked so well in the pilot, with just enough character work to make it play out believably differently, and so much action it avoided a lot of the historical cringefest it could have become.…
Red Carpet Rundown: Oscars 2015
Red Carpet Rundown: Oscars 2015Ah, the Oscars! The most complicated Hollywood event of the year, employing phalanxes of stylists and makeup artists and managers and PR agents and event handlers and press, where a rainstorm means scrambling to keep water off the guests, stylists flying into their kits for waterproof mascara just in case, a cadre of umbrella-holders, and forty-five PR assistants with 150 BPM heart rates and staticky radios all praying they aren’t stationed by the tent seam that’s going to dump water on Julianne Moore.…
Sleepy Hollow: “Awakening”
Sleepy Hollow: "Awakening"“Awakening” aired on Monday; it’s the penultimate episode of the season for Sleepy Hollow, and I am only just now done laughing about John Noble’s face from the scene in which Katrina reveals she’s gone evil and she’s sort of done being married to Ichabod and just wants to raise an army of zombie witches instead, by using the Liberty Bell.…
Reign Reports: “Sins of the Past” and “The End of Mourning”
Reign Reports: "Sins of the Past" and "The End of Mourning"So, we haven’t had a Reign Report here for two episodes! Technically the first one is because I was heading to California for the DC Talent Summit, but let’s be honest, if the episode had been amazing I would have made the time. Instead, it was just a pile of awkwardness with a plot point on top.…
Catwoman and Other News
Catwoman and Other NewsI have some fun bits of news! We’ll start with the big one. DC announced its June titles today; among them is the note that I will be continuing as the writer of CATWOMAN. It wasn’t a sure thing – I was taken on initially for a single arc, and the future was conditional.…
