Red Hood and the Outlaws #5 review

Artist Kenneth Rocafort and colorist Blond present a killer cover for the fifth issue of this consistently excellent DC New 52 original. The imposing monster. Helpless hero. Hurting heroine, hair flowing like blood. And all imposed on a gorgeous winter scene … The artwork’s just as impressive inside, in a more sequential way, of course. […]

Uncanny X-Men #5 review

This issue the Brotherhood of Evil X-Men handles a dangling plot thread from an X-Force story. Angel had become evil old Archangel again (he’d fit right in here) but Psylocke was too soft to kill him, meaning 5,000 people died in a nuclear blast. Oops.

Legion Lost #5 review

‘Never stopped you either, energy-sock.’ And there you have it, my favourite line in this week’s comics. But who said it? Stick around, embrace spoilers and I’ll get to that. As we rejoin the storyline, Dawnstar is fighting super-villain from the future Alastor – three of him, due to his manifesting the powers of a […]
