Scooby-Doo Team-Up #31 comic reviewMystery, Inc. gets called in for a little fun with the Atom. Scooby-Doo Team-Up #31 introduces the Scooby Gang to the Atom and a mystery at the sub-atomic level involving a mysterious ghost apparition that leads our heroes into battle against a wizard to has taken control of a miniature kingdom through use of his “magic.”

Following both the format of regular Scooby-Doo mysteries, and that of The Wizard of Oz, Mystery Inc. suspects the wizard’s power is far less mystical than he claims. While Daphne and the Atom provide a proper distraction, Velma proves her hunch and uncovers the truth behind the usurper’s power, helping to free the kingdom from his rule.

Justice League Action - Missing the Mark television review

Mark Hamill goes four-for-four in the new Justice League Action animated short. Hamill not only voices himself, both the villains who abduct him for ransom, but also the hero who steps in to foil the plot (with a little help from the voice actor). With Hamill reprising his roles as both the Joker and the Trickster, the aptly-named “Missing the Mark” actually hits the bullseye. Well played, Mr. Hamill. Well played.

Stranger Things - Chapter Two: Trick or Treat, Freak TV review

“Trick or Treat, Freak” provides much of the memorable snippets from the various trailers promoting the Second Season of Stranger Things, primarily putting out foursome in Ghostbusters costumes for basically the entire episode. Halloween returns to Hawkins, which means trick-or-treating for the gang and newcomer Max (Sadie Sink) – much to the sullen Mike‘s (Finn Wolfhard) displeasure, and new trouble with Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) discovering more ruined pumpkin patches and the beginning of a mystery which will be his primary focus him for the next couple of episodes. Getting caught up the case, the sheriff looses time causing some trouble at home with an already stir-crazy Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). Speaking of Eleven, both episode two and three begin filling in what happened to Eleven following the end of Season Two and explaining how she eventually ended up staying with Hopper in the woods.

Teen Titans #13 comic reviewWhile the rest of the Teen Titans go in search for Kid Flash to offer him a spot back on the team, against Damian‘s wishes, the Boy Wonder goes on his own search for a new member to fill the slot vacated when Kid Flash betrayed the Teen Titans and aligned himself with Deathstroke.

The Kid Flash-half of the story shows us that Wallace is still a bit lost and could certainly use the support of a team like the Titans, but despite Damian’s flippant remark about how Starfire should try and lead the time I doubt there’s any change in the Titans being able to meet Kid Flash’s price for returning and get Damain to apologize for kicking Kid Flash off the team.
