REVIEW: 'Red Sonja' #17 by Gail Simone and Walter Geovani

★★★★★ (5/5)
(Possible spoilers ahead)  Leave it to Gail Simone to take a familiar storyline and make magic out of it. It doesn't hurt to have one of the most dynamic she-devils in print as your heroine either.

★★★★★(5/5)
In a clever and creative twist this month, Copperhead #9 tells the events of issue #8 from a totally different perspective.

REVIEW: 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' #4 by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, Robert Hack, and Jack Morelli

★★★★☆ (4/5)
One thing fans of horror take for granted is the effects of all those bloody deaths on the survivors. Whether for expediency or indifference, there isn't a lot of mourning going on before the next action piece. 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' #4 is different as the titular teenager grapples with the horrific death of a loved one with the pathos and heartbreak you'd only see in real life. It's a remarkable exploration of pain and guilt amid extraordinary circumstances.

In Search of the Greatest Latino Superhero, Part One (Opinion)

Ok, quickly name the greatest Latino superhero you can think of. Can you think of one? Two? If you're an avid comic book fan you might have said Vibe or The Question or Blue Beetle or maybe the new Ghost Rider. How many do you think the general public can name? The answer is probably zero. Zorro maybe if you're lucky. In this age of comic books and comic book adaptations, the call for diversity has never been greater. Yet, the elephant in the room for me has been the lack of a frontline Latino superhero that has transcended the page and into the public consciousness. Despite making some inroads with Latino characters in comic books the quest for the greatest superhero is a false prophecy.

5 Things We Want to See From 'Sleepy Hollow' Season 3

After a brilliant rookie season we thought season two would build on the superior chemistry between leads Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison and continue being the fun and eerie supernatural drama we love. Unfortunately, 'Sleepy Hollow' inexplicably wasted the goodwill and patience of fans by being wildly inconsistent, unnecessarily convoluted and stopped being fun. It would have surprised no one if Fox had canceled the show. Instead, it was renewed for a season three with promises from the network that the show would be revamped. We've got our fingers crossed, but there are a few things we'd like to see next season.

REVIEW: 'Cyborg' #1 by David Walker, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado

★★★★½ (4.5/5)
