Tim Drake: Robin #1 review

It’s funny, everything about this comic screams ‘Young Adult’ but it’s about a guy having a midlife crisis. Tim Drake has packed in college, bought a houseboat, dumped his girlfriend and is experimenting with his sexuality. He may still be a teenager, but Tim’s always been mature for his years. As we join him in […]

Action Comics #1047 review

Comics today aren’t cheap, but if Action Comics #1047 had consisted of just one particular page, I’d still have left the issue smiling.

Flashpoint Beyond #5 review

We begin at the end. The end of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, whose fourth of seven issues appeared the same day as this comic. Oops. To cut a long story short… nah, you need to see where co-writers Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams and Tim Sheridan go. It is exhausting! Whether you explain infinite earths […]
