Power Girl #12 review

I knew I’d love it, but it’s the issue I’ve been dreading – Power Girl #12, the last hurrah by creators Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts (I haven’t heard that the book’s fine regular letterer John J Hill is leaving, but if so, thank you too!). A day in the life […]

Zatanna #1 review

The bad: Zee’s too busty. The good: Everything else. This is a stylish little comic, as the first-ever Zatanna ongoing debuts. The backwards-talking magician shows a terrifically conceived mystical mob boss and his band of demons what’s what after they begin to strike at the mortal world. And apart from the introduction of presumably supporting […]
