Going into The Expanse, I knew very little about it. I knew it was based on the book series by James S. A. Corey (the pen name of co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) and I knew it was very well received by critics and fans alike.
The thing that grabbed me most about it, however, was the love people seemed to have for the show, even bringing it back from the brink of cancellation when SYFY decided to prematurely end the show’s run. Having now binged the first season in a couple of days I can safely say I am all in on The Expanse too.

Bruce Wayne wakes up in Arkham Asylum. Young. Sane.
And…he was never Batman.
That’s the set-up, at least. Though it doesn’t take long for the comic to diverge from that great hook – for better or worse.

Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Eisner Award-winning ‘Mister Miracle’ is a realistic look at mental illness and emptiness, all set against the backdrop of Jack Kirby’s wacky Forth World.

For now, with this and that currently halting production, ‘The Tower’ is acting as the season finale. But even in those terms, it’s a fun and effective episode that both sets up the impending threat and introduces us to a very different new character.

When Torchwood came back for its second series, it had it all figured out. The adult elements had been fine-tuned, the stories were more confident, and there was a real sense of self-awareness about the whole thing. For the most part, it’s really excellent science fiction.

‘Batman: Digital Justice’ is like a time capsule from the early 1990s. From it’s weird “ground-breaking” 3D art to it’s cautionary message about technology, it’s aged like milk. But surely there’s something of merit here?

Batman has gone global. After making a spectacular return from the dead, Bruce Wayne decided that there needs to be more than one Batman. In fact, he settles on there being a whole team of them, all over the world. Letting Dick Grayson continue as the caped crusader back home in Gotham, Bruce travels the globe, recruiting heroes who have all in some way been inspired by the bat.

DCeased is more than just a good title. It’s a story that offers us a new and often horrifying glimpse into the DC Universe, by ravaging the world with a deadly techno-virus. Imagine a zombie, but with powers of the Flash or Superman and you’re on the right lines.
