Superman #34 review

The Ulysses story continues with the new hero being introduced to his birth parents, the Quinns, who sent him off to another dimension because the world was ending, then, two minutes later, found it wasn’t.

Supergirl #34 review

When is a SuperDoom crossover not a SuperDoom crossover? When it’s a superb issue of Supergirl written by Tony Bedard.  I wasn’t too hopeful going into this issue. Just look at that cover. It’s well drawn by Cameron Stewart and lushly coloured by Nathan Fairbairn, to be sure, but check out poor, sad Kara – if […]

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #10 review

The creatures of myth are on the loose and Mystery Incorporated are in the thick of it. Given that they’re visiting Paradise Island, it’s not so unexpected; what is weird is that the monsters are appearing, attacking … then vanishing as if they’d never been.  The opening instalment of this two-part “digital second’ story ended […]

Grayson #2 review

Lor luv a duck, it’s those bloomin’ Yanks, writing about dear old Blighty again …Oh all right, the dialogue’s not too bad in this England-set issue, as Agent 37 – better known as Dick Grayson – decides the best way to blend in with the Leicestershire locals is to use his stunning facility with accents.
