The Flash #30 review

The new Flash creative team of writers Robert Venditti & Van Jensen, and penciller Brett Booth debut and straight away … dismay me.

Superman #28 review

Ten out of ten for a striking cover design as Ed Benes follows Aaron Kuder’s lead on this month’s Action Comics to give us an especially earthy treatment. But can you judge the book by this cover?

Teen Titans #6 review

Kid Flash’s run-in (sorry) with Superboy has left him out of synch and in danger of vibrating to death – can the rest of the Teen Titans find someone to save him?

Teen Titans #5 review

Superboy has pretty much beaten Wonder Girl but before he can turn her over to his masters at NOWHERE, her new friends – christened the Teen Titans by Red Robin – arrive on the scene. After a bunch of individual tussles, they lie defeated but score something of a win … Superboy tells the shady […]

Kid Flash breaks out of the N.O.W.H.E.R.E. facility, taking another prisoner, Solstice, with him.
