Telltale Games have announced several new titles and release dates for upcoming episodes of their currently running series.

Episode 3 of Guardians of the Galaxy, More than a Feeling, will be released on August 22nd, 2017. Episode 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 is expected to be released in the same month.

Speaking of August, a sequel to Batman has been unveiled, titled Batman: The Enemy Within. Said sequel will follow up on the tease from the end of the last series, where Bruce Wayne's mysterious and unhinged ally(?), John Doe, escaped from Arkham. Episode 1, The Enigma, is stated to come out on August 8th, 2017.

After three seasons and two spinoffs, 2018's The Walking Dead: Season 4 will be Telltale's last venture into their popular The Walking Dead video games. Series regular Michelle Hutchinson will return to voice recurring protagonist Clementine.

Perhaps most surprisingly, Telltale have revealed they're working on a second season for their critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us, based on Bill Willingham's Fables. Not much is known so far beyond the release window, but Adam Harrington and Erin Yvette will reprise their roles as Bigby Wolf and Snow White, respectively.

A long time ago, when Ann Nocenti was announced as the new writer on Catwoman, I had a look around to see what else she had written to see if I liked her stuff. I think I only read a preview of her Catwoman (where Selina hisses No parents! I'm a bastard child! Can't you tell?) and then decided it wasn't for me. It was a good decision, as it really wasn't for me.

Better value though was her 2004 work with
John Van Fleet on Poison Ivy: Cast a Shadow. I haven't seen anything like his work in my time of reading comics, except a little bit of Johnathan Hickman's early stuff. Fleet is very moody and dark, but uses light and shadow well, especially in this story which is all about light and shadow.

Because it's Ann Nocenti, it's absolutely barking. It's a clear enough story, and follows the standard things you'd expect from a Poison Ivy tale, but everybody involved goes around chewing the scenery.

The synopsis is pretty standard too
A rash of bizarre deaths Batman has been investigating is somehow linked to a new tower that has been blocking out the sunlight to Poison Ivy’s cell in Arkham Asylum.

Let's begin )
I like this story, because it's beautiful, and it has something to say, but Nocenti is quite overblown with what she does and how she does it that some things get lost a bit in the shuffle.

“Seeing Gotham for the first time with clear eyes, his psychosis now cured, he starts to understand the absurdity of vigilantism and how Batman's actions are only contributing to Gotham's endless crime cycle. Joker sets out to beat Batman by becoming the White Knight that Gotham really needs.” -- Sean Murphy

"I'd also like to stress that the portrayal of Batman presented here is not definitive and is not necessarily how I would write the character otherwise. The repressed, armoured, uncertain and sexually frozen man in Arkham Asylum was intended as a critique of the '80s interpretation of Batman as violent, driven and borderline psychopathic. My own later portrayal of Batman in the JLA comic was one which emphasized the character's sanity and dignity; in the end, I figured that anyone who had gone so far and been so successful in his quest to avenge his parents' death and to help other people would have ended up pretty much straightened out. Bruce Wayne would only have become conflicted and mentally unstable if he had NOT put on his scary bat-suit and found the perfect outlet for his feelings of rage, guilt and revenge." - Grant Morrison

In light of some of the recent Joker posts and discussions on his sanity and morality (or lack thereof) and the ethics of Batman keeping him alive I decided to revisit what I consider to be one of the definitive Joker stories.

Before Bane was ever conceived, there was another villain who "broke the Bat". Deacon Blackfire, from 1988's The Cult. Who, despite having no real powers, is frighteningly successful purely by appealing to the worst emotions of those around him. It goes about as well as you'd expect...
