Superman #38 review

Supergirl #27 review

Space mercenary Lobo is dead, killed by an out-of-control Supergirl. His corpse – which hasn’t shown the Czarnian tendency to heal instantly – is being opened up on the dissection table at Dr Shay Veritas’s Block research facility. Veritas is watching her lookalike assistants from behind an observation glass, along with Kara, who’s appalled at […]
