PiercingMetal Thoughts: As always, there are numerous titles concurrenly coming out for this company but for the sake of keeping this section quick and easy we only speak of the first issues for the most part here. That said what do you think of these few? I love Harley Quinn as she is such a fun and spirited kind of psychopath and who doesn’t want a little madness in their life from time to time. I also like the idea of giving the Bombshells a title since those statues from where this draws inspiration are something else. It will be interesting to see how this title fleshes out. The movie titles intrigue me and I just might give them a go based on how much I have been enjoying every DC Comics animated feature. They are so damned good and if you have not seen any of them, I suggest you download somewhere (legally of course) or watch a stream via whatever method allows you to enjoy these in full. I think Netflix has a few of them but am not sure about Hulu. Okay that is all that I have for you with this chapter, I will see you again next time. Feel free to chime into the comments with what DC Titles you are currently enjoying. I always love to hear from you.
