Naomi Season Two #6 review

‘It all ends here!’ yells our heroine on the cover of the final episode of her second mini-series. Well, kind of.

Detective Comics #1062 review

Evan Cagle’s moody cover, featuring a swanky new logo by Darran Robinson, is a declaration of intent. This new run of Detective Comics is going to be all about the melodrama – a play with music. The music arrives in the first scene, on the stage of an opera house in darkest Gotham. There’s an […]
