It has to be said there's not a lot to come and look at in my (current) home of Bromley, SE London. There's the Churchill Theatre, if you happen to like a lot of musicals and murder-mysteries. But that's about it. Tourists - do not come here.
Yes, it's HG Wells' Time Machine fashioned out of Lego! Or at least a version of the version of HG Wells' Time Machine featured in the 1960 movie The Time Machine.
Why? Well, HG Wells was born here. There's even a blue plaque on the TK Maxx (formerly Allders) in the high street.
Of course, we used to have a mural to HG Wells in the High Street, featuring the three-legged Martian war machines from War of the Worlds.
That's now been replaced by a mural of Charles Darwin, who used to live here. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because that's not actually a three-leggged HG Wells Martian war machine, but a Tripod from the BBC adaptation of John Christopher's The Tripods.
But after the jump, we'll be looking at the flashback-tastic Justice League #51 and punch-tastic Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year 5 #26, as well as a Trinity-tastic night-time meeting in Superman: Rebirth #1. Oh, by the way, Donna Troy has a new costume this month, too, over in Teen Titans: Rebirth #1.
It was a relatively quiet week for Diana last week. For the young 'uns and the light of heart, there was a trailer for a new movie based on DC SuperHero Girlscalled DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year, which is due out in August in the US:
For the oldies and the dark of heart, there was a trailer for the extended Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is due out in June, and looks like it'll have a bit more of our Wondy than the cinema release did, albeit mainly more fighting:
In comics, there were only two appearances of note. The first was DC Bombshells #47, in which Mera flashed back to a time when her ex-husband Nereus was getting a bit jealous of her and Diana spending so much time together (I wonder why…):
But much more importantly, we also had Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1, which not only starts setting out the tentpoles for how Diana is going to fare/get rebooted in the Rebirth universe, it also marks the first time the legendary Greg Rucka has written for our Di since he was unceremoniously booted off her title at the end of Volume 2, back in 2006 - yep, it's been a decade, guys.
About the blog
A UK media blog focusing on the best scripted TV from around the world, with daily news, views, exclusive reviews and good conversation. There's a bit of a bias towards the latest and greatest US TV, but we also cover Scandinavian, Canadian, European and Antipodean TV, as well as UK TV ranging from new Doctor Who to old Z Cars, and BBC4 to S4C.
Add in film, theatre, art, books, events, competitions and even weekly reviews of Wonder Woman comics, and you've (hopefully) got officially the fourth best blog on the web for media lovers. Oh yes, and there's The Barrometer, the ultimate guide to quality TV.

I've edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for trade magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider and the equally short-lived Death Ray and Filmstar magazines; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it "web site for urban hedonists" The Tribe.
