Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League (Rebirth) #8, Wonder Woman 75th anniversary special #1

Posted on November 8, 2016 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share




The big Wondy news of last week was, of course, not just the release of three lovely new posters for next summer's Wonder Woman, but also a brand new trailer featuring Amazons, super-speed, maybe a bit of flying and a whole lot more, too!

Needless to say, if you want a moment-by-moment breakdown of the trailer or screenshots of every single important bit, those options are available, thanks to the Internet. Because apparently, the trailer's very, very popular.

Meanwhile, in other minor news, Gal Gadot suggested Halle Berry should be her love interest in the next movie, which should make good old Phil Jimenez very happy, at the very least. Probably.

In the comics world, there were only a couple of new arrivals featuring Diana: Justice League (Rebirth) #8 and Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1. The former was really more of a guest appearance in which Wondy has to stop Cyborg after he gets hacked. Unfortunately, whatever hacked him is then able to hack Green Lantern's ring…

But that was it. So let's focus purely on that 75th anniversary special after the jump. See you in a minute.

Intu Bromley really, really likes HG Wells now

Posted on October 3, 2016 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

In June, my current home town of Bromley decided it was going to start celebrating HG Wells again, after getting rid of the mural to him that used to be here the best part of a decade ago. Well, I say Bromley but it's actually huge corporate giant Intu, which took over the Glades shopping centre a few years ago and renamed it Intu Bromley. 

Since then, things have progressed. The Lego Time Machine has now been given a permanent home in a glass case at the foot of the ground floor escalators.

And this weekend, in a probably temporary display, we got this:

So well done to the greedy giant corporate for doing what the council arguably should be doing. At least this weekend. I imagine it'll be Santa's Grotto  next week.
