Superman: Lois Lane #1

Once upon a time you could guarantee Lois Lane would be in pretty much every Superman story, as reporting rival, romantic partner or both. Since the 2011 relaunch Lois hasn’t been seen so much, with a steady boyfriend keeping her busy as Superman ‘enjoys’ a weird un-romance with Wonder Woman. I wouldn’t say Lois has […]

Demon Knights #1 review

I’ve seen tons of riffs on the Fall of Camelot, I guess we all have. But Demon Knights begins with a fresh look at the moment that the dead Arthur is wafted away to Paradise, as one of the book’s soon-to-be-stars breaks out of her assigned role with style, and maybe just a smattering of […]
