Mr Miracle #12 review

It’s the final issue of Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mr Miracle maxi-series and I read it with a growing sense of dread; not so much because of events in the story but due to a fear they wouldn’t stick the landing. The thing is, as I’ve said previously, I’ve bought every issue of this […]

And then there’s the story arc title, ‘Intergalactic Lawman’. […]

Wytches: Bad Egg Halloween Special #1

‘Trees were always the enemy.’ If you’re of a certain age, you’ll see this sequence and think: ‘Salem’s Lot’. Followed by, ‘don’t let him in!’ It’s a typically unnerving moment in Scott Snyder and Jock’s Wytches: Bad Egg Halloween Special, a 64pp story returning to the world they created a few years back, a world […]

Doom Patrol #12 review

Pretty dull. Or rather, pretty and dull. That’s the latest issue of Doom Patrol, which arrives six months after the previous one and about a year late in terms of when it should have appeared. For this is a prelude to Milk Wars, the Doom Patrol/Justice League America crossover so late that the milk had […]
