Comic Book Review: Doomsday Clock #2

Doomsday Clock #2

I trekked out in the snow to the comic shop again this week to pick up a copy of Doomsday Clock #2, the second chapter in DC’s 12-issue mini-series that promises to bring the Watchmen and DC Comics universes together. Does it successfully follow up on the strong start of issue #1?

Some spoilers to follow.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Five thoughts on Rey’s background

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Daisy Ridley as Rey

One of the things Star Wars fans, including me, were most looking forward to in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was learning more about Rey.

Since Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out in 2015 theories have abounded about her parents, who apparently abandoned her on Jakku. Would The Last Jedi give us definitive answers?

Before we get into that, I wanted to put down on paper my pre-The Last Jedi Rey theory. It’s hardly original, but, you know, it’s the internet. There’s a theory for everything.

There are multiple spoilers for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi in this post so proceed with caution.
