Justice League #24 review

There’s a colossal, unnatural storm in the Atlantic, threatening the Eastern Seaboard of the US and the Justice League are stepping up. Winds of 200mph are a threat, but when you have several members with super-speed and endurance, what’s to stop you stopping it? How about the wrath of a water witch? Mera plans to […]

Aquaman #25 review

A comic as full of political posturing as Aquaman #25 seems to cry out for a George RR Martin reference. Game of Wet Thrones, maybe. I’ve never read the books, and only managed three episodes of the TV show – too much rumpy pumpy, overly beardy – so don’t have the knowledge to make a […]

Teen Titans Special #1 review

Damian Wayne’s USP is that he’s a bit of a dick – highly intelligent, but even more arrogant. I’ve defended him down the years as a wild card who can turn a story on its head, disrupting normally smooth-running relationships, injecting extra excitement.  This issue, though, he does something unforgivable.  Let’s work our way to […]

Aquaman #19 review

A few issues ago Aquaman fought the Aquamarines, human-sealife hybrids sent by the US military when Atlantis and the States were at odds. That misunderstanding was ironed out, but not before some heavy casualties. So when the leader of the Aquamarines asks Aquaman for help, Mera is understandably iffy.  Major Rhonda Ricoh wants Aquaman’s help […]

Aquaman #17 review

The war between Atlantis and the United States is over. Aquaman is a hero to the world and he’s been invited to speak at the United Nations as a likely precursor to Atlantis being granted membership. While Mera tells Aquaman he went down well, for Arthur it wasn’t just another address.  Who’s the mysterious man […]
