There’s things to watch this week, even if it is a bit of a mixed bag. The new Disney+ Muppets show has gotten some good reviews and folks are excited to see The Umbrella Academy back for its second season.
Me? I’m going to try and figure out where I can see the new Charles Manson doco series from Epix: Helter Skelter: An American Myth.

This is a comic book released this week. It looks wonderfully daffy.
It’s available to buy digitally via Comixology.
You can also buy it as a physical book at your local comic book store. In Australia I recommend: Kings Comics in Sydney, Comics Etc in Brisbane, and All-Star Comics in Melbourne.
See you next week!
