The Flash 243 review

At the end of last issue one of Wally’s twins, Iris, was dead at the hands of Gorilla Grodd. Turns out it was Grodd using his Force of Mind power to mess with everyone’s head and Iris is alive. Mind, she’s still decades older than she should be, older than her twin, Jai, and far […]

The Brave and the Bold 16 review

A few years ago, Superman answers the bat signal, covering for his out of town pal. He’s soon teamed up with Catwoman to stop the underworld auction of ‘a map to some hidden cave just outside the city’. Ulp. That’s the set-up for a truly delightful issue of one of the best superhero books on […]

X-Men Origins: Jean Grey review

Ms Marvel 29

Oh look, it’s the comic I swore off last issue. Seems it’s still in my order, so let’s have a look. Cover . . . quite amusing, a blonde woman in a Private Benjamin uniform who doesn’t look like Carol Danvers is showing us her tits and pouting. Oh, and there are some amusing anti-Skrull […]
