Justice League Dark #1 review

Magic is broken. All over the world, practitioners are being consumed by their spells, their corpses left grotesque and filled with a strange energy. Wonder Woman, the Justice League member most familiar with enchantments, has been tasked with putting a team of specialists together. But even occasional Leaguer Zatanna, who gladly accepts Diana’s help when […]

Teen Titans #20 review

The new Teen Titans are on their latest mission – bringing down the current incarnation of the Church of Brother Blood.

Wonder Woman #51 review

Some time ago, Wonder Woman sent would-be murderess Mayfly to jail for a long stretch. The last person she expects to visit her is Diana. But here she is.

2000 Dangerous For a Girl

In 2007, missing the old comic book letter columns, and dishearted by the downgrading of the DC message boards, I decided to try my hand at this new-fangled blogging thing. I started with a bit of a rant about bloated DCU events motivated by the non-ending of the Sinestro War. In 2018, here I am […]

The Amazing Spider-Man #1 review

It’s a brand new day for Spider-Man. Another. And it begins with a dream. Peter and Mary Jane atop a high spire in New York City. A rude awakening is provided by his and Robbie Robertson’s new roommate, Fred Myers, playing video games insanely loudly at 5am. Myers, like Peter, does some of his best […]

Superman #1 review

Superman has flown into space, looking for his family. Lois and Jon left with Clark’s dodgy dad Jor-El for a summer adventure, but he’s lost contact and is desperate to find them.
