In case you missed it, or just want to see it again…
To celebrate the release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ WONDER WOMAN film, Warner Bros. Consumer Products has showcased an entire online store dedicated to all things Wonder Woman! The store offers officially licensed collectibles, accessories, clothing, media, and home decor. And right now, there is Free Shipping, No Minimum on U.S. ground orders! You can even pre-order the blu-ray already. The prices seem a bit high on some items such as books and dvds, if you’re used to shopping Amazon. And there’s no way I’d ever spend $25 on a tshirt. But some of the accessories and even higher end items are better priced.

HAWK: When Desmond Miles is called away on an urgent mission, he entrusts fellow Assassin Jonathan Hawk with the search for the Scepter of Isis – a powerful ancient artifact, lost in time.
EL CAKR: In the present day, Assassin Jonathan Hawk fights through a terrible setback to unmask a traitor in the Order’s ranks, whilst his ancestor El Cakr battles Templar agents to gain possession of the powerful Scepter of Aset in 13th century Egypt.
LEILA: In 14th century Egypt, the seasoned Assassin El Cakr seeks to return the mysterious Scepter of Aset to the Brotherhood… when it is stolen by a mysterious woman named Leila. Seven centuries later, El Cakr’s descendant Jonathan Hawk desperately tries to get his hands on the relic – leading to an ultimate showdown between the Assassins and the Templars. The grand finale of Assassin’s Creed’s Egyptian saga!
The Hawk Trilogy collects three previously published graphic novels: Hawk, El Cakr, & Leila. Each with the underlying Hawk character storyline. Hawk is an Assassin with a missing eye, that the Templars have confiscated. His DNA holds the secret to the missing scepter. As the two groups search for answers in the past, it’s a race to see who finds the artifact first.
This was an action-packed adventure with intriguing and colorful characters. The trilogy flowed well, as well as Hawk’s backstory. I thoroughly enjoyed this saga and was disappointed when it ended as the characters and their individual stories were fantastic. These Assassin’s Creed graphic novels are becoming a must-read for me.

Doctor Who Shirt – Well, I got the exact same shirt last month, so that was weird. I’m not a paying customer though, so maybe they just had extra. I’m sure if you got a duplicate, they’d send you out a replacement asap.
Comic and Sticker – This Superman and Green Lantern is a fun retro comic I look forward to reading. I’m not sure what this cartoon mouse is, but I don’t do anything with stickers anyway.
Summary: This is the first time I’ve gotten a duplicate shirt. But I have friends and family members who enjoy the show who I can pass this on to. If you need to replenish your geek wardrobe with nice quality tees, look no further. In fact, I may just keep this as a sleep shirt, even though I’m not a fan of the show. And the bonus comic is always fun too.

Supergirl moves to National City! As Kara Danvers, average American teenager and high school student, Supergirl must balance her life as a superhero with her new life on Earth. But some demons from her Kryptonian past are coming back to haunt her, and Kara will find herself face-to-face with her father: the sinister Cyborg Superman!
Supergirl has been adopted by the Danvers who work for the DEO. She fights crime while maintaining her secret identity as Kara Danvers, a teenager trying to get an internship at CatCo. Fans of the Supergirl tv show will see a lot of similarities here. It’s a reboot, so I’m not totally opposed to changing her origin story. This story arc focuses mostly on Cyborg Superman who claims to be Kara’s father. The story is fast-paced and action-packed. And while the constant fighting of Cyborg Superman was exciting, it may have been a bit too drawn out. I would’ve liked to see more of her normal teen side, interacting more with her peers and Cat Grant. Hopefully, we get more of that in the upcoming installments. The artwork was nice. And characters have a lot of promise, so I look forward to reading further in the series.
An all-new adventure set in the continuity of the classic 1978 Battlestar Galactica television series! The Galactica’s search for sanctuary takes them beyond the limits of known reality and into a cosmic mystery where the hunters become the hunted, ruin and despair dot the skies, and Adama goes where friend and family can’t follow.
I’m a big fan of the classic Battlestar Galactica, so I read all the books and comics I can get my hands on. The story is a bit strange – Apollo and Starbuck get stranded on a strange planet. Meanwhile, Adama and the Galactica are under attack by an unknown force. It’s never fully explained where the planet is or where these strange new enemies came from or what their motivation is. There’s also an odd part where Adama is being psychically attacked. There was a lot packed into this short graphic novel. I did like the addition of some familiar foes being forced to ally with the Galactica. And the retro feel with plenty of action was just what I was hoping for. I wasn’t a fan of the artwork at all, unfortunately. The characters faces looked bulbous and hard to distinguish. If this storyline continues, I’d be interested in learning more about these new enemies as a lot was left open-ended.
