This is a week with a lot of good releases, but few great releases.

If you’ve been following one of the creepier celebrity stories making the rounds this year, you may know that Allison Mack, best known as Chole from Smallville, has been arrested this week for complicity in crimes allegedly committed by a bizarre sex cult. Earlier, the investigation looked at Kristin “Lana Lang” Kreuk’s involvement, but she left the group years ago, and claims the activity at that time was less legally and ethically troubling.
If you want something less serious or scientific, we’ve got two recent cosplay videos by Youtubers, below.

Back in 1938, Action Comics #1 turned up at the newsstands and drugstores of America. The cover featured a man in a blue and red suit and a cape running while holding up a green late model automobile.
The comic-book cost ten cents.
In 2014, one of the few remaining copies sold for over three million dollars.
In 2018, DC Comics published issue #1000. It’s an 80-PAGE GIANT, making it about the length of its famous predecessor. Whereas that Depression-era funnybook only devoted its first story to the Man of Steel, 2018’s is all about the Superman.

DC has announce that Spielberg will be making a film based on the comparatively obscure (that is, to non-comix-readers) Blackhawks comic.
Whether it takes place in the quasi-established DCU remains uncertain, but I think it has potential. Like Iron Man, the mainstream will come to it with few source-based expectations, and, if I recollect correctly, Spielberg has had a hit or two with films set in the same era.

On the CW, we are Dropping Content as the seasons come to a close, so I have revamped these posts to include some more comic television! I am not going to say I got everything based on a comic, but I added the ones I watch. If there’s another comic show you like, please comment and I’ll include it. I’ll throw any streaming series up as they show up.
For our Debut Catalog, Lucifer thinks he is going on nocturnal missions, Supergirl returns bringing Laurie Metcalf with her. The Flash continues fighting against intelligence, Black Lightning ends his first season with a showdown of black vs. white, Supergranad is still trapped in a terrorist cell, and Arrow has expanding businesses.
From the House of Ideas, Legion is still crazy (and that description probably won’t change) and the Agents take a trip to Rome to stop Malficent’s daughter from breaking the world. In Riverdale, the “teens” get prepare to put on their bloody musical.

We’ve reached the midpoint of the… Season? Series? and the situation grows increasingly bleak for the men of the expedition–
–at least, for the ones who remain alive.

This is a good week for fans of 50s comedies or classic DC animated TV series.
