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.

New 'Catwoman' Series Coming This Summer From Joëlle Jones and Laura Allred

After a two-year hiatus, Catwoman returns in a new on-going series with writer-artist extraordinaire Joëlle Jones this summer. But first, she has to tie the knot with an eccentric billionaire who has an extraordinary nightlife in 'Batman' #50.


Announced during Saturday's Batman panel at C2E2, Selina Kyle's new solo monthly series will branch out of her nuptials to Batman in BATMAN #50. The press release dismisses any romantic honeymoon afterglow following the wedding. Instead, the premise of her new comic has "Catwoman back on the streets dealing with a mysterious copycat and taking on a brand new, as-yet-unrevealed villain in the Eisner nominated Jones’ debut storyline."

Jones has been one of my favorite comic book creators for a long time. Her impeccable art style on series like 'Helheim,' '12 Reasons Why I Love Her,' and 'Supergirl: Being Super,' to her creator-owned series 'Lady Killer,' has cemented her place as a bonafide star on the rise. She's finally getting the recognition she deserves by doing the writing and penciling on the 'Catwoman' series with another talented artist in colorist Laura Allred. 

DC Comics released a teaser image (above) of Selina surrounded by cats while holding a copy of 'Batman' #50 that arrives on July 4, the same day as 'Catwoman' #1. Check out the solicitation below for 'Catwoman' #1 and remember to pre-order it with your local comic book store.
