I’ll be back to work later this week, so I’m savouring this last couple of days off with Lady M. We had a nice walk round the block earlier, and now we’re just enjoying finishing up Stargirl on Amazon. There’s a lightness to it that makes a fun contrast with the more po-faced Arrowverse. As a long-time fan of the JSA and comicbooks in general I’m finding it a joy to see a superhero show that absolutely leans into its roots and source material. Even better, even the most mustache-twiddling villain has nuanced and sympathetic writing. Like the best JSA stories of the last decade or two, it’s concerned with family and legacies – and is all the better for it.
It’s all enough to make my geeky heart glow.
