Astro City #44

Astro City #44 comic reviewI loved this issue! Even after years Astro City can still surprise me. With the single-issue story “The Cat Who Walked Through Walls,” Astro City #44 touches on a theme near and dear to my heart: animal heroes. In this case the animal is the pet cat of two Astro City heroines – Sunhawk and Nightingale who are completely unaware about what their pet does when they aren’t looking (other than try and knock dangerous substances off of tables and shelves).

Unaware of their cat’s power, or devilish intelligence, our heroes are completely oblivious to Kittyhawk tackling their case to stop the latest villainous plans of Popinjay on her own. Okay, she also relied on the help of another animal hero in Rocket Dog. Yes, I said Rocket Dog! Did I mention how much I love this comic?!

Samurai Jack - Episode CI television review

“Episode CI” offers a bittersweet ending to the tale of the time-displaced samurai warrior that began on August 10, 2001. With Jack (Phil LaMarr) captured all eyes turn to Aku (Greg Baldwin) who broadcasts his victory across the entire world. The final episode brings in several faces we’ve seen over the course of the series including a personal favorite of mine in the forest creatures that once taught Jack to jump good. Rising to the call, all of those once saved by Jack attack Aku giving Jack a fighting chance. While not in any serious threat, the sheer number of Woolies, Scotsmen, Spartans, Canine Archaeologists, Archers, Triseraquins, the giant Robo Samurai, and others do provide the momentary distraction for Jack to reach the Aku-controlled Ashi (Tara Strong) who not only discovers her free will but also the fact that she shares Aku’s powers – which include the ability to create a time portal.
