James finally gets his Monkey’s Paw wish, and has persuaded Seb and returning special guest Caroline Siede to watch Robert Rodriguez (and James Cameron)’s Alita: Battle Angel! But will they find themselves surprisingly charmed by it, or just mock him relentlessly for fancying a robot?

Meanwhile, the news section gives Seb the opportunity to talk about Peter Capaldi and Grant Morrison for quite a while, so there’s his wish taken care of as well. We also look at the Birds of Prey teaser, the latest hilarious update on New Mutants, and yet more on the ongoing Spider-Man situation, because how could we ever get fed up of talking about that?
