Futures End #48 review

Looking back to my review of Free Comic Book Day offering Futures End #0, I was really looking forward to seeing where the book went after such a strong start. And the answer is, all over the place. It’s been the Lombard Street of comics, turning on a dime. There have been some great moments […]

Futures End #44 review

We’re getting to the end of Futures End and things really hot up here. Brainiac has detached New York, enclosed it in a dome and is taking it somewhere. Can Superman and a ragtag Justice League somehow save the day? That would be telling – this comic is set five years in the future, so […]

Wonder Woman #35 review

It’s ages since I dropped Wonder Woman. Brian Azzarello’s makeover of the Amazon legend was, to understate, not my cup of tea. But I can’t resist an ending, so popped back to see how Azzarello and artistic partner Cliff Chiang wrap up their three-year story before the next creative team arrives. In a nice bow, […]

Wonder Woman #15 review

Nothing much seems to have changed while I’ve been away: Diana is still following her fellow demi-god brother Lennox around like a clueless […]

Wonder Woman #0 review

For Wonder Woman readers, DC’s Zero Month means a trip back to Diana’s childhood, and harsh lessons from an Olympian. The story opens with the 12-year-old princess of Themyscira stealing a harpy’s egg to make her birthday cake. She hands the egg to her mother, because on Paradise Island, says Hippolyta, ‘you need to present […]

Wonder Woman #9 review

A punny thing happened on the way to the wedding. Actually, several punny things, and I’m getting very tired of Brian Azzarello’s penchant for wordplay. All too often the point of scenes in his Wonder Woman run seems to be to get a pun into play, yet rarely does said pun move the story forward. […]
