Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Karai's Vendetta

Until recently I’ve stayed away from the newest cartoon version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles due to its awful hip-hop version of the classic TMNT theme song and the CGI design of the series which is a far cry from both the original comic and popular 80’s cartoon. After a couple of episodes I’ve gotten used to the look of the new show (but not the theme), and although the series seems aimed at a younger audience than even the original there is still some fun to be had.

“Castle, I think I’m standing on a bomb.”

Castle - Still

While investigating a suspect in a local bombing, Beckett (Stana Katic) accidentally steps on and activates a bomb in the man’s apartment leading to a flashback-heavy episode as Castle (Nathan Fillion) tries to keep his partner’s mind off her situation while buying time for the bomb unit to defuse the threat and Esposito (Jon Huertas) and Ryan (Seamus Dever) grill the bomber (Adam Rose) on how to disarm the device.

The Flash #19

in Comics

The Flash #19Although the cover teases the first appearance of the New 52 version of the Reverse-Flash, which we only get in final couple of panels, most of The Flash #19 deals with Barry Allen stopping the prison break of the Trickster and several other prisoners caused by the Outlander Nation.

Once again Francis Manapul is back to do the issue’s cover, but the art inside the book by Marcio Takara, which isn’t bad, is certainly a step down from what we were getting before. The storyline of Barry working without his powers, which is never properly explained here to anyone not reading Dial H for Hero, works all right, and by the end of the issue the Flash has his powers back and things are back to normal.

That is until the comic introduces the new version of the Reverse-Flash (whose awesome original costume has been thrown away for yet another lackluster New 52 redesign). It will be interesting to see what version of the character has made it into the New 52 and what exactly his plans are for the Scarlet Speedster. For fans.
