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.

Teen 'Titans' Series Begins Filming This Fall, For Real This Time

Look, I know you've heard this before but there really is going to be a show based on DC Comics' Teen Titans. While the proposed series at TNT didn't pan out, DC has promised to make 'Titans' part of their upcoming streaming service launch in 2018. To prove they're serious they've enlisted the help from some seasoned professionals who know a thing or two about comic book shows.


The all-new live-action series"Titans" will be written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery), Geoff Johns (President & Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment; The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Goldsman, Johns, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are executive producers.

According to CBR, there are indications that shooting will be starting this fall.
Not only have we been given firm details regarding the series’ cast and creators, a job posting on My Entertainment World indicates principle shooting on Titans will begin on September 25 in Atlanta, GA.
They also confirm that the team members chosen so far are Dick Grayson, Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy. The show is described as "a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe...'Titans' is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever."

No cast or release date has been announced yet. After some false starts in the past, it looks like a Teen Titans series is finally getting made. It'll be interesting to see how the use of Dick Grayson will affect the DCEU at large. WB seems to keep their TV and movie universes separate as evidenced by having two different actors portray Superman and The Flash for example. We could see a different Dick in upcoming films like Joss Whedon's planned 'Batgirl' feature. He's traditionally her love interest.

The series will air on Warner Bros’ new DC Comics-branded digital platform that will launch in 2018.
