Star Wars The Bad Batch Season 2
This weekend is WonderCon weekend! Some of Team Popverse is going to be attending and I am one of them. Convention weekends (especially one that don’t involve a long bit of travel beforehand), aren’t super conducive to enjoying a bunch of media. Of everything I have on the horizon for the weekend I’m most looking forward to what DC and Warner Bros animation is bringing to the table. Between Batman: The Doom that Came to Gotham and Justice League X RWBY, I have two animated movies in my very near future. DC original animated movies are some of my favourite superhero movies period. I’ll fight anyone that Under the Red Hood the best Batman movie! Every time I get a chance to cover, or simply enjoy, a new animated adventure from my favourite superheroes in the DC Comics universe I know I am going to have a good time. Plus, Tati Gabrielle?

Chris Arrant (Editor in Chief):

This weekend is my last weekend before two weeks of conventions, so I'm enjoying it like I should. Procrastinating on prepping by watching Star Wars: The Bad Batch. As a huge fan of the original Clone Wars, I was pre-disposed not to look forward to Bad Batch do the heights it'd have to reach but... I was wrong. It's still that good, even without who I thought were my favorite characters. I'm not finished yet, so don't spoil me. Packing can wait.

Graeme McMillan (Staff Writer):

This weekend, I’m choosing violence. Specifically, I’m choosing the triple-bill of John Wick Chapters 1 through 3, in honor of both the fourth movie arriving in theaters as well as the untimely passing of Lance Riddick last week. It’s been some time since I’ve seen the first one, but if there’s anything that this weekend deserves, it’s a trilogy of ultra violence and increasingly arcane mythology building, all anchored by Keanu Reeves demonstrating the value of under-acting. I’m going to be following through with a celebration of the joys of arcane mythology building by also going back and finishing my re-read of Marvel’s old Transformers comics from my youth. Quite what was going on for the majority of that series, I still can’t work out almost four decades later, but there’s no denying the appeal of a series that just gets progressively weirder and more nonsensical.

Tiffany Babb (Deputy Editor):

I'm driving to Wondercon every day this weekend, which means that I'll be listening to a book on my drive. In this case, I just borrowed from the library the audiobook of Death of a Laird by M.C. Beaton. It's part of a series of mysteries, and I'm looking forward to seeing if I like it!

I’ve finally gotten to the final book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, A Court of Silver Flames, and I’m excited to dive into that. I was reading this series at a pretty steady pace, but took a brief pause to read a stand-alone book while I was traveling. I’ve heard this one is very good, like on the same level of A Court of Mist and Fury good, and this one is also told from a few different point of views, so I’m excited to see where this book goes. I shall let you know!
