Robin War #1 review

Once upon a time there was just one Robin. Then there was a second. And a third… But there was no overlap, one Robin succeeded another, again and again. But recently Gotham has seen the rise of a youth movement consisting of self-proclaimed Robins, would-be heroes with no connection to Batman. They train themselves, they […]

Superboy #28 review

Sometimes it’s hard to be a Legion of Super-Heroes fan, grabbing onto every comic with the smallest link to the 31st-Century’s greatest super-team.

Legion of Super-Heroes #11 review

When DC’s New 52 initiative began, only three franchises escaped the big reboot – Batman, Green Lantern and the Legion of Super-Heroes. With other DC Universe books we have little idea of who the characters are, how many of their old stories ‘happened’. Not so with Batman, GL and the Legion. And of the three, […]
