REVIEW: 'Home Sick Pilots' #2 by Dan Watters, Caspar Wijngaard, and Aditya Bidikar

The Old James House has lost its ghosts. With her new powers, it's up to Ami to bring them back...whether they want to come home or not. Even when they're really big ghosts wrapped in metal, with lots of sharp edges and things. HOME SICK PILOTS #2 Writer: Dan Watters Artist: Caspar Wijngaard Letterer: Aditya Bidikar  Designer: Tom Muller Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: January 13, 2021 Cover Price: $3.99 Score:  ★★★☆☆ (3/5) A powered-up ghostified Ami has been compelled to find the ghosts of The Old James House in the form of an enchanted horseshoe. Its current bearer isn't going to give it up so easily. Meanwhile, Ami's friends Buzz and Rip are left looking for answers about her whereabouts back at the house.

Angela Bassett Rightly Cast as Queen in Marvel's 'Black Panther'


In what's become probably the most star-studded feature film to include Hollywood's most talented black actors and filmmakers to date, Marvel's 'Black Panther' has added yet another exceptionally talented performer in Angela Bassett.

She'll play the Queen mother to T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) aka the Black Panther, prince of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. As a result of the events in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' T'Challa must take his murdered father's place on the throne as Wakanda faces new threats. 

The film already includes the talents of  "Creed" director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira. There's also a young batch of up-and-coming actors in Daniel Kaluuya, Winston DukeFlorence Kasumba and, Letitia Wright.

Bassett currently was on FX's horror anthology series "American Horror Story: Roanoke" for a fourth season and is no stranger to action or comic book movies. She was the first Amanda Waller on the big screen for Warner Bros' ill-fated 'Green Lantern' movie and was in both 'Olympus Has Fallen' and its sequel 'London Has Fallen.' 

She's currently on the period drama mini-series on Acorn TV "Close to the Enemy" with Jim Sturgess who had this to say about his co-star.

"She’s amazing," says Sturgess, over the phone from his home in London. "She’s a real force of nature. I mean, a beautiful, amazing person — but very strong, very fiery. She was just brilliant. It was amazing spending time in a pub in Liverpool, watching football with Angela Bassett! With Tina Turner herself! It was one of those surreal experiences."

Black Panther is set to hit theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
