Domino #5

Domino #5 comic reviewWhile the overall plot of Domino versus her new arch-nemeses doesn’t progress much, there’s still quite a bit to enjoy this issue including our girl grasping a measure of insight while fighting off a club full of enemies alongside Shang-Chi. Finding calm in the storm, Domino realizes that her powers can work for her (and why that can terrify all those around her).

There’s a noticeable weight taken off Domino’s shoulders when she stops trying to force her powers and just let them work naturally for her. Of course, there are still questions about what happens when her adversary either takes those powers away or decides to ramp them into high-gear again. Has she learned enough from Shang-Chi? Time will tell.

Elementary - How to Get a Head / Uncanny Valley of the Dolls TV review

Elementary gets a bit cheeky with its latest two episodes. The puntastically titled “How to Get a Head” centers around the discovery of a headless victim whose death initially appears to be linked to the occult. And in “Uncanny Valley of the Dolls” the sole witness to a murder turns out be a sex bot whose memories help Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) catch a killer. In each episode Bell (Jon Michael Hill) is the focus of the B-story, first in the search for a detective to replace him when he leaves the NYPD (foreshadowing some possible trouble for Holmes and the department in the future) and later in and old acquaintance (Ian Hart) of Sherlock holding up Bell’s chances to get into the US Marshals out of spite. While Holmes’ attempt to cherry-pick Bell’s successor may have failed, he proves to have far more success in his carrot and stick approach to removing the vindictive roadblock to Bell’s career change.

Catwoman #2

Catwoman #2 comic reviewCatwoman‘s investigation into the impostor responsible for burglary and murder, tarnishing our protagonist’s already bruised name, leads her to a warehouse full of fakes and more questions. Quickly dispatching the women, who turn out mostly to be unemployed actresses, Selena is left with a single breadcrumb to trail back to the man who hired them (but still no clue, as yet, as to why).

What we do learn here is that the Governor Creel’s wife Raina wasn’t expecting one of her frauds to commit murder. What she did want, other than drawing Catwoman out of seclusion, however, still remains a mystery.
