Nightwing #21 review

Does a look at a book that came out a fortnight ago count as a Retro Review? I only got around to reading this issue last night, and simply have to pour on the praise. It’s a one-off team-up between Titans buddies Dick Grayson and Wally West, just catching up as they enjoy the Blüdhaven […]

Justice League #51 review

Five years ago, Justice League was a very annoying comic. Bad-tempered heroes, sound and fury signifying nothing much….

Convergence: The Titans #1 review

In the year since Brainiac kidnapped Gotham City, placing it under a dome that takes away any superhuman abilities or advantages, sidekick-turned-adult hero Roy Harper has been doing good in a new way.
