Justice League UnitedI’m a sucker for a gathering of the team tale, so this original eight-pager is right up my alley. It’s mostly heroes and villains responding to the request of JLU members Alanna Strange, Stargirl, Animal Man and Equinox to help plug some holes. In reality. It seems that the Convergence – hey look […]

A-Force #1 review

It’s impossible to ignore the huge publicity this comic has generated for Marvel – I’m not sure why the pre-issue furore, it’s not like this is the first comic featuring an all-woman team.

DC Sneak Peeks reviewed – Justice League 3001, Dr Fate, Bat-Mite, Bizarro, Deathstroke, Green Lantern: The Lost Army, Aquaman, Action Comics, Gotham By Midnight, Lobo

Justice League 3001 If you’ve not been reading Justice League 3000, here’s a nifty chance to see what the book offers – a new twist on the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes with a splendid mix of laughs and conflict. But behind the fireworks JM DeMatteis emotionally layers his future versions of Wonder Woman, Batman and the rest […]
