DC Cybernetic Summer #1 review

Growing up in the UK, summer specials were a thing – tabloid-sized editions of our weekly favourites on super-shiny paper, all in colour for 25p… back then full-colour was reserved for only a few pages in the likes of the Beano, Dandy and Bunty. I loved them, so I couldn’t resist this seasonal special. And […]

Wonder Woman #759 review

It’s a big day for Wonder Woman as, aided by her Amazon sisters, she moves into a brownstone in Washington DC. She quickly meets the neighbours.

Empyre: Avengers #1 review

I’ve not read the Avengers regularly for years – too many characters I’ve no fondness for, storylines that drag on. But having read the series for most of the Bronze Age, I could not resist a cover that features the call to arms, while nodding to those brilliant ‘the old order changeth’ issues. Illustrator Steve […]

Action Comics #1023 review

‘Clark Kent walked into a bar.’ It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it’s no joke for the Invisible Mafia members when Clark Kent, newly revealed as the Man of Steel, shows up. Why is he there? Let’s go back a few pages, to the start of Action Comics #1023. After a very […]

The Flash #757 review

When I was a kid there were certain images that recurred in comics, cool visuals that made me smile, or awed me, or just reminded me about the world of DC. Superman opening his Fortress of Solitude with a giant key. The Legion floating through a rainbow of time. The Venn diagram of Earths One […]
