Tasked with intercepting ‘Emergent’ crises, manifestations of leaked Source Wall energy among Earth’s populace, the Titans are called to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

Adventures of the Super Sons #1 review

‘The boys are back in town’ proclaims Dan Mora’s scrappily energetic cover, and DC isn’t kidding. Damian Wayne and Jon Kent return to publication after the editorially driven cancellation of their regular series and are more fun than ever.

Justice League Dark #1 review

Magic is broken. All over the world, practitioners are being consumed by their spells, their corpses left grotesque and filled with a strange energy.

But even occasional Leaguer Zatanna, who gladly accepts Diana’s help when […]
