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. The second issue of Home Sick Pilots from Dan Watters and Caspar Wijngaard takes a surprising turn as it defies the expectations of a haunted house story established in its debut.

Final 'Defenders' Trailer Sees Sigourney Weaver Deliver the Heroes a Warning

Despite some mixed reviews for the first 4 episodes, I'm still excited to see Marvel's "street-level heroes" - Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist - unite in Netflix's 'Defenders' series beginning this Friday.


This final trailer centers around the sinister Sigourney Weaver as she warns the heroes about how foolish they are to try and oppose her. She makes some ominous threats while a montage of the heroes' significant others is shown. Weaver is calm, cool, and cold-blooded in her delivery. It's also an action-packed trailer with scenes that involve people being thrown out of windows and punched in the face. 

The consensus so far from critics who were given the first four episodes to review is that 'The Defenders' takes several episodes to pick up steam. They don't even appear on screen together until episode three.Whatever problems there might have been to start the series - pacing, chemistry, casting, tone - will hopefully straighten itself out in the final four episodes. 

You can begin binging the entire 8-episode season beginning Friday, August 18 on Netflix. 


Don't call it a team-up. Marvel’s The Defenders focuses on four heroes that come together as an ancient, powerful group threatens all of New York. The Netflix original series launches globally on August 18, 2017.
