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.

Valiant’s Most Anticipated New Title Expands to Ongoing Series with LIVEWIRE #1

Valiant is excited to share that LIVEWIRE – the most exciting new launch of the publisher’s “BEYOND” initiative – has been expanded from its previously announced limited series run into a full-fledged UNSTOPPABLE ONGOING SERIES!

LIVEWIRE #1
Written by VITA AYALA
Art by RAÚL ALLÉN with PATRICIA MARTÍN
Cover by KHARY RANDOLPH
ONGOING SERIES | BEGINNING DECEMBER 2018

Arriving in stores this December from Vita Ayala (Supergirl), and the artistic team behind the best-selling SECRET WEAPONS series, Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín, LIVEWIRE #1 will begin the character’s first ever solo-led series in the history of Valiant Comics... and will send the technopath known as Amanda McKee down a devastating new path of heartbreak and heroism!

“Following the events of HARBINGER WARS 2, Livewire is in a vulnerable position, both literally and morally,“ writer Vita Ayala told CBR. “To bring her back to a state of equilibrium (in terms of who she is), we needed to take her down to her foundations and build her back up again. That is not to say that she is becoming a different person, but rather, that we want to get to the core of her and reinvigorate her convictions.”

Once, Amanda McKee knew her purpose. She wanted to wield her machine-manipulating powers for the good of humanity, to protect other superpowered people like her…and time after time she faced betrayal from mentors, colleagues, and even the U.S. government. Now, in the wake of the worst disaster the country’s ever faced – one that was directly caused by her hand – Livewire must decide for herself what kind of hero she will be…if she’ll be one at all.

In the wake of hotly-anticipated Valiant BEYOND titles like FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 in September and BLOODSHOT RISING SPIRIT #1 in November, LIVEWIRE #1 will launch the critically acclaimed publisher out of 2018 and into the new year with an unforgettable BANG!
