Gotham-season-1-episode-8-The-Mask-6-860x442Here we are in our 8th straight week of superhero TV! And the fun just doesn’t seem to stop! There’s the absence of a Constantine clip this week (NBC just didn’t release one for the show’s 4th episode), but thankfully Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Flash are back to save Tuesdays (super spies and scarlet speedsters are much more entertaining than election coverage)!

This week Black Mask makes his Gotham debut, The beautiful and dangerous Plastique explodes into Barry Allen’s life and Darryl & Carol return to Walking Dead to kick some walker ass and take names (fun fact: whenever you ask a zombie’s name, it almost always responds BRIANNNN)!

Here’s this week’s wild and wacky previews!

    Gold_Key-The_Devils_Isle_of_SpaceRemember the time when I presented the feature where I attempted to compare the Japanese animated television multi-series Pocket Monsters (known outside Japan as “Pokemon”) to the British television multi-series Doctor Who through multiple facts? Well, I had fun doing that, and just recently, I thought of another topic where two unrelated media properties could compare to each other.

    To begin with, back in 1960, comic book publisher DC Comics introduced a band of super-heroes created by Gardner Fox known as the “Justice League of America” (or simply “JLA” or “Justice League”) in the pages of the comic book series The Brave and the Bold, only for the time to later have its own self-tiled ongoing comic book series, also launched in 1960. Five years later, then-active American film studio Desilu (later fused into Paramount Pictures) launched a legendary space adventure live-action television series called “Star Trek” (nowadays better known as “Star Trek – The Original Series”). Anyway, although both science-fiction properties each maintains an entirely different premise (Justice League of America being a superhero series sometimes set on Earth and the original Star Trek being a non-superhero action/adventure show generally centering around a five-year mission in outer space) and represents a different lore (JLA representing the DC Universe franchise and original Star Trek representing well Star Trek franchise), there are certain tropes that make the original Star Trek series’ protagonal group of characters, the crew of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, comparable to the Justice League itself. Now, get ready to see the whole picture of how this is possible.

      Shot 4 for Flash DDORI have never read much comic book stories that center entirely around any of the DC Universe characters bearing the super-hero alter ego of The Flash, although I have seen a number of DC animation films and series that include a Flash as a main character.

      Anyway, I started watching the 2014 live-action television series The Flash on a regular basis when it premiered, and after seeing a number of episodes, I felt it was time to start building a list of Flash-centric graphic novels and trade paperbacks I may need to look into when it comes to finding the essential parts of the Flash’s history, from both New 52 and pre-New 52 continuity versions. So for the first time in weeks, I paid a visit to my local library to find some Flash-centric graphic novels and trade paperbacks. The Bad news was not much available. But the good news was at least one caught my interest, a graphic novel titled “The Flash: The Dastardly Death of the Rogues”, written by Geoff Johns (the executive producer of the currently running Flash-centric television series) with illustrations by Francis Manapul and Scott Kolins. Anyway, welcome to my first Flash review, fellow readers.
