Superman #52 review

It’s the conclusion of the Final Days of Superman story and no one could say this issue doesn’t live up to its title. The New 52 Superman saves his friends from the pseudo-Superman determined to steal his life. And the imposter does steal Superman’s life, but not in the way he intended – and he […]

Justice League 3001 #12 review

The Justice League are fighting Eclipso and his Legion of Doom in a desperate bid to take back the universe from Lady Styx. Moments from the excellently choreographed battle alternate with key vignettes showing the relationship between twins Terri and Terry Magnus. We see how, little by little, the League is ditching the dysfunctional to […]

DC Universe Rebirth #1 review

My name is Martin Gray. I’m the fastest blogger alive. Well, usually. An 80-page giant containing 62 pages of story takes a little longer to review than you average 32pp book. And DC Rebirth has so much story, so much to chew over.  The headline, of course, is that this comic by writer Geoff Johns […]

Titans Hunt #8 review

And so it begins. And ends. Shortly after Titans Hunt began, apparently a sop to longtime fans, it was announced that it would herald the coming DC Rebirth linewide makeover. Which is rather neat, given that Titan Mal Duncan is once more in his old identity of Herald, and a key cog in the plan of […]

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #16 review

Usually, I buy Scooby-Doo Team-Up digitally. Each comic-sized issue is split into two parts, which is frustrating, but the scans are brilliant for screen grabs – great for an inveterate blogger. But hearing that the next story would see the gang meet the Marvel Family, well, I couldn’t wait two months to read the whole […]

Gone fishin’

… or rather, cruisin’. Not to Kooey Kooey Kooey, but down the Greek coastline, with side trips to Split and Dubrovnik. I’m in Santorini on Wednesday, so if I get a wifi signal may download some comics and upload the odd thought.  One way or the other, I’ll be pretty rubbish at catching up on […]

Legends of Tomorrow #3 review

Now here’s a treat, the third issue of DC’s 80pp giant collection of mini-series only a couple of weeks since the last one. I suppose the publisher wants to clear the decks for all the DC Rebirth titles; whatever the case, I’m delighted because this anthology book, with its mix of old characters and new […]
