The sequel series to the much-lauded Avatar: The Last Airbender has at last gone quietly into that good night, but what impact if any has it left on us? Korra will be best remembered for putting its female characters front & centre and making them active participants in their story. The other element of its legacy unfortunately is the continuous squandering of rich story material; fascinating moral quandaries and character potential dropped every season to start anew. We must offer a certain level of admiration for their willingness to attempt something daring and being willing to engage with challenging subjects, but also temper it with frustration at what could have been under different circumstances.

A bit overdue but still not too late to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Batman, and we intend to mark the occasion with aplomb. But what more can possibly be said about this masterpiece of TV animation? Quite a bit, almost two hours worth! The shows impact on DCs successive output across a range of media, the tragic pathos of many of its villains, and just how does Greg always seem to show whenever AKOM is involved? It's all here in this giant-size issue of SOTSM!
