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.

Tom Hardy Freaks Out in the First VENOM Teaser Trailer

Sony's Marvel entry from their 'Spider-Man' universe, Venom, starring Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams released its first teaser trailer and it's...mysterious(?).



Sony's  teaser is certainly dark and foreboding with not much given away and only a glimpse of a freaked out Tom Hardy. Hardy plays Eddie Brock who in the 'Spider-Man' comics becomes the host of an alien symbiote, a sentient being in liquid form. 

For comic book fans, the prospect of a solo film for the supervillain turned antihero seemed intriguing but not necessarily in demand. Nonetheless, Sony wants to build on the success of their collaboration with Marvel Studios (and retain the movie rights) on 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and build this extended world from the same source material with Venom now and the upcoming Silver & Black, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood featuring Spidey's other arch enemies Silver Sable and the Black Cat.

Unfortunately, for the casual moviegoer, this teaser does very little to spark interest as it looks like some suspense film starring a grumpy Hardy. Future trailers will surely improve on this providing more context and revelations but out of the gate, this teaser is a swing and a miss. 


Venom is due out in theaters October 5.
