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 […]

Nightwing #16 review

Here’s a book that promises something fun and gives us so much more. The cover tells us it’s Damian Vs Dick for the Bat-Crown. It’s a bit of a non-issue because Dick and Damian are a generation apart so there’s no reason they can’t both wear the pointy ears at some point. Heck, Dick already […]

FF #12 review

Last week, in Fantastic Four #600, the Future Foundation kids teleported the Baxter Building’s upper three levels away in order to escape Annihilus’ insectoid incursion. We rejoin them as they phase onto the top of a mountain in Latveria, just as an alternate world Reed Richards, time traveller Nathaniel Richards, super-villain Dr Doom and his adopted son […]
