This Week in Comics: March 8-14, 2021

Welcome, everyone, to This Week in Comics, or as I call it, Captain Comics' Random Thoughts About Comics and Stuff. I hope someone brought snacks.GENRE MOVIES & TVIt's a quiet week on screens. There are no new fantasy/sci-fi movies and no genre TV premieres. A Discovery of Witches Season 2 is coming to an end, but only if you're watching it weekly — if you have cable access to BBC America, you could have watched the whole season on Jan. 8. And it's been renewed for a season 3, so it's not…See More

"I was concerned when an episode ended with the two kids in a duffle bag. Whether he realizes it or not, the alien is changing. He obviously chose to let them live when he didn't have to with that lake close by."

"I laugh out loud during every episode. Doc Harry (the alien) is quirky and naive in so many ways. I am not bothered by the less human aspects of the character because he is not human. I don't expect him to have the same ethical behavior as most…"

"Thanks for the recommendation, Richard. I was wondering if Debris was worth checking out. And I have been enjoying Wynonna Earp, so I would recommend that."

This Week in Comics: March 1-7, 2021

Good afternoon, culture vultures! Here's an overview of the week to come in comics and related pop culture. It's a little late — I usually post on Sunday — but as you can see, we're trying something new.For the record, in the outside world the Johnson & Johnson single-shot vaccine is joining the fight against COVID-19; an investigation of New York Gov. Mario Cuomo has begun; many Texans are still without power, water and ethical leadership; and Donald Trump gave a speech at the Conservative…See More

"I'm sure Gary Frank's variant cover to Generations Forged #1 is a homage, but I can't name the original. Re. the Elric volume, I believe the first three images are Druillet's, and the others Cawthorne's."

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
