It has certainly been an entertaining month with the whole spectrum present from big name properties to self publishing. Interesting to see long established characters like Wonder Woman and Catwoman still delivering top-notch drama. But celebrity is no guarantee of success as some dire Tomb Raider offerings proved.
My star was Catwoman for showing how female characters can be strong, sexy, smart and vulnerable at the same time and to the Wet Moon series for making real life seem so riveting.
See you next month (assuming I have any sanity left).
