March was a busy month as always, between writing and editing news reports for Multiversity Comics, and reviewing Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning for the site. Ahead of it finally being released in the US, I also reviewed Armando Iannucci’s deliciously dark comic book adaptation The Death of Stalin:

I also turned my attentions to reviewing the cancelled G.I. Joe comic “Scarlett’s Strike Force,” which still managed to see its first three issues released:

And like every month, I penned a column on a property I’d like to see turned into a comic book, in this case the Oscar-winning Get Out. This one was written as a back-up for last month’s on Horizon Zero Dawn, in case a comic was announced during the game’s first anniversary.

After IDW announced it would be rebooting its Transformers line of comics this year, I wrote my first longform piece for the site on what that meant to me. This essay has actually received thousands of views and has been shared by writer James Roberts. What I can say? We all love Transformers.

There’ve been a few other, non-comics writing I wanted to pursue, but was just too busy. The news about Ant McPartlin was deeply shocking to me as someone who grew up watching him on TV, but ultimately I felt unsure about expressing too much sympathy given the people he endangered. Likewise, Ready Player One’s release would’ve been a perfect time to dust off an essay on Spielberg and diversity I’d been writing, but that dormant draft has become genuinely psychologically intimidating.

Personally, I’ve been playing a lot more video games than normal lately, between Assassin’s Creed Origins, Dreamfall Chapters, Life is Strange: Before the Storm’s “Farewell,” the final chapter(s) of Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within, Night in the Woods, Beyond: Two Souls, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. It’s probably because all the big movies in March received mixed reviews, which is best exemplified by how apparently toothless the Tomb Raider movie reboot is compared to its game counterpart.

As always, feel free to support me by donating to my PayPal or buying me a Ko-fi.
