Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era #1

Atomic Robo & the Dawn of a New Era begins with no great catastrophe but simply with Atomic Robo getting the new Tesladyne up and running. This includes welcoming the new recruits who are anxious for some science-adventuring, Bernard taking the opportunity to examine the local dormant volcano (yep, nothing dangerous there), Vikram and Lang leaving on a trip (surely no trouble they could get into), and Robo secretly hiding his new creation Alan in the basement away from prying eyes (nope, nothing could go wrong here either).

Young Justice #1

DC Comics relaunches Young Justice as part of their new teen-focused Wonder Comics line. The first issue follows the basic formula of a threat large enough it causes a group of heroes to converge and become a team. Issue #1's threat are invaders from Gemworld, a threat met head-on by new character Jinny Hex only recently arrived to Metropolis who is joined by Young Justice staples Robin, Impulse, and a reluctant Wonder Girl who all arrive separately to the scene. They are also joined by a new Teen Lantern.

The Kid Who Would Be King

Far more successful than 2017's dreary King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, there may be a lesson for Hollywood to adapt a lighter touch when embracing the legend of King Arthur. The Kid Who Would Be King is a family movie that kids are likely to enjoy more than adults, but what surprised me was how smart the film turned out to be and how earnest its themes which will help adults get onboard as well.
