Wander Over Yonder - The Bad Hatter

When it falls into the hands of Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) we get a little backstory of Wander‘s (Jack McBrayer) magic hat and how such a powerful item fell into the wanderer’s possession. While control of a hat that can give them whatever it needs drives both Hater and Peepers (Tom Kenny) increasingly mad, Sylvia (April Winchell) does what she can to try and cheer up her best pal by finding Wander a different hat. As is the cusom of the show, “The Bad Hatter” not only shows us why Wander needs his hat but why the hat needs an owner like Wander. In the end Wander and his prized possession are reunited allowing his wandering to continue once more.

Batgirl #47

Batgirl #47While fun, Batgirl #47 is a jumbled mess. Offering us an team-up between Batgirl, Spoiler, and Bluebird the latest issue sends Babs and Stephanie into the GCPD disguised as cops in an undercover mission so ridiculous it would have made Charlie’s Angels blush. The girls’ night out vibe is cute, but Barbara’s plan (breaking into a police station where nearly everyone knows her by sight) is half-assed at best.

It also doesn’t help that the art from the issue is a scatterbrained as the story with two different artists sharing duties. The very talkie issue also takes far to long to get to the break-in as we’re forced to wait through Babs dealing with the bizarre New 52 version of her father (seriously DC, WTF did you do to Commissioner Gordon?) and roommate issues.

Shadowhunters - Dead Man's Party

The kidnapping of Simon (Alberto Rosende) by vampires allows the series to introduce more supporting characters to the series, primarily those of Camille (Kaitlyn Leeb), the leader of the vampire clan responsible for the abduction, and Melilorn (Jade Hassouné), a faerie and Isabelle‘s (Emeraude Toubia) occasional friend with benefits. From the final scene it’s obvious that Simon’s time with the vampires has left their mark on him, although our heroes have yet to figure that out just yet.
