Bee and PuppyCat #1
Writer(s): Natasha Allegri, Garrett Jackson
Artist(s): Natasha Allegri
It’s a quirky new take on the magical girl genre with Bee, the forever unemployed main character who can’t seem to figure out life, and the mysterious PuppyCat, a stray…whatever it is…that she stumbled across who has a powerful secret. Fighting bad guys has never been so funny.

STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL – SON OF DATHOMIR #1
Writer: Jeremy Barlow
Artist: Juan Frigeri
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Getting cut in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi and being rejected by his former Sith master Darth Sidious isn’t going to defeat Darth Maul. In fact, it only makes him mad enough to take on the galaxy—with an army of Mandalorians!

A part of The Clone Wars season 6 you never saw!

Rating: ★★½☆☆

    y’know, i think the nolan batman flicks that leave affleck’s batman in a hopefully better place than we all think. at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, Batman leaves Gotham with the message that anyone can be a hero, anyone can become Batman, anyone can sacrifice a little (or all) of themselves to make someone else’s day suck a little less. TDKR ends on an incredibly hopeful, optimistic note.

    So hopefully, that’s the message that Batman gives Supes by the end of MOS2. Yes, Superman destroyed an entire city and killed a dude on worldwide broadcast. Yes, Supes is a living weapon. But he can take that strength and endurance, and use it to make the world a better place. He can stop an energy blast from hitting a busload of kids. He can stop a building from falling on an old lady. He can haul the nuke out of the city far enough so nobody is harmed by the blast.

    And now I really want to watch The Iron Giant, which was a better Superman movie than MOS was.

      TLDR, Batman can show Superman that being a hero is more about sacrifice than heavy hitting punchy-punchy.
