2019 – Ten of the best in comics

It’s been a year of great comics, along with the inevitable mediocre and just plain poor ones. Things that made a big impression included the energised Superman titles under the pen of Brian Michael Bendis (with the return of the Legion of Super-Heroes some compensation for the ageing up of Jon Kent and subsequent loss […]

DCOCD – Flashpoint

If you don’t know DCOCD, it’s the podcast in which Paul and Mike of Waiting For Doom – the world’s first, and greatest, Doom Patrol podcast – look at every DC event from Crisis to… well, who knows where it will all end.

Team teleporter Wink and birdman The Aerie give the general who announced these ‘crown jewels’ to the world a chance to evacuate the subs before they act. He refuses. […]

Supergirl #37 review

Kara has been infected by poison created by The Batman Who Laughs, but rather than fall in with his gang of giggling geeks, she goes it alone. This sniggering Supergirl actually wants to help people. She’s approaching the acts of attempted heroism from a position of superiority, but is certainly not out to hurt the […]

Superman #18 review

In which Superman votes for the first time as Earth’s representative to the new United Planets and reveals to the world – heck, the universe – that he’s also Clark Kent. This is the issue I’ve been waiting for these last several months, since the DC Comics publicity machine told us what the latest twist […]

We wish you a merry podcast

It’s Christmas time, there’s some need to be afraid… when you’re reading Elvira’s House of Mystery Presents: Elvira’s Haunted Holidays. OK, that was just the old ‘cute way in’. In fact, this 1987 anthology isn’t going to have you lying awake at night, for fear its stories come true. It might, though, entertain you for […]
