Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #9 comic reviewFollowing the events of last month’s issue, the Scarlet Spider makes a pair of new friends (well… if you are grading on a curve) and works with Ricochet to track down the other hero’s former (and now resurrected) partner Hornet. Knowing there’s far more to the story that Ricochet is willing to divulge, and the fact that it’s been some time since he’s played well with others, Scarlet Spider’s team-up doesn’t last that long (although the consequences do involve our hero getting in over his head and Richochet racing through a casino without any pants).

There’s plenty of action in Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #9 featuring Reilly take on Hornet. As to just what the former hero’s story is, or what that mystical totem is, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Star Wars Rebels - The Occupation TV review

“The Occupation” marks the Ghost‘s return to Lothal. While the Rebellion is more concerned with an abbreviated communication from Ryder Azadi (Clancy Brown) concerning the the Lothal Imperial Factory, Ezra (Taylor Gray) is far more anxious to help his homeworld fight off its Imperial occupation. But he is unprepared for the destruction he finds; is he too late? Is there anything left fighting for? There are several callbacks to previous episodes including appearances by Ryder, Vizago (Keith Szarabajka), Jai Kell, Valen Rudor, and Puffer Pigs.

Once Upon a Time - Beauty television review

“Beauty” has two main purposes. First, the flashbacks allow the show to say goodbye to fan-favorite Belle (Emilie de Ravin) while filling in a bit of Rumpelstiltskin‘s (Robert Carlyle) past prior to his arrival in Hyperions Heights. While awkward, the scenes do allow for a nice farewell to the character. Although we only see glimpses, it’s obviously a good life the two of them shared while suggesting that perhaps Rumpelstiltskin may finally be the hero Belle always knew he could be (or at least heroic-ish). The other piece of the episode explains the purpose of Tilly (Rose Reynolds), whose mad ravings help prod the good detective’s past providing the kind of kick in the ass the character, and the season, need. With his memories (and powers?) restored, I’m wondering just what Rumpelstiltskin’s plans might entail.
