Fantastic 4: Antithesis #1 review

‘A new story from a classic era’ is how Marvel describes this four-issue mini-series and based on the first instalment, this could prove a classic itself. So far as meeting the criteria of the quote goes, ‘new’ it most certainly is, and as for ‘classic era’, that’s fair – the costumes and presence of toddler […]

Action Comics #1024 review

Good as symbolic cover images can be, I do like it when a book shows a moment from the story. And that’s what John Romita Jr, Klaus Janson and Brad Anderson’s shot here is, a beat from Brian Michael Bendis’ current serial.

The latest issue of the Brian Michael Bendis/Ryan Sook reboot has the usual amount of the former and very little of the latter. That’s because it’s gimmick time, with Sook and inking partner Wade Von Grawbadger contributing a gorgeous big battle spread, while every other page features the work of a different artist. To make […]

Metal Men #9 review

Now that’s a fantastic cover, as illustrator Shane Davis and colourist Jason Wright homage a poster for 1933’s King Kong.

Sad days at DC Comics

If you follow any of the big news sites, you will have heard the news – Warner Bros are laying off something like 800 employees from various divisions, with DC losing around a third of staff. Worst hit is DC Collectibles, which is being shuttered, while the DC Universe app team is also badly hit. […]
