My Greatest Adventure #1 review

Last year DC gave us the Weird Worlds anthology, six issues of great-looking, flighty fun. Here’s the sequel, with two of the three stars of that book back, while the irritating Lobo is, happily, gone.

Doom Patrol #13 review

One of writer Keith Giffen’s aims with this book has been to give the readers something new every month – a character, a concept, a fresh take on the DC Universe … last issue he outdid himself with the revelation of Elasti-Woman’s true nature. She’s sentient Silly Putty. I never saw that one coming. This month […]

Doom Patrol #7 review

This is one of those comic books in which the stars of the show hardly appear, but you’re having such a good time it’s barely noticeable. So Robotman, Elasti-Woman and Negative Man are off panel until the final page of the story, recovering from the events of Blackest Night and awaiting transport home. This leaves […]
