Action Comics #962 review

And just as it risks going on too long, Superman’s battle against Doomsday concludes. After several issues of back and forth, with Superman perturbed to find this Doomsday can think strategically, I was beginning to wonder how things would end.

Action Comics #958 review

We’ve had a lot of Doomsday over the last few years, and he’s long since worn out his welcome. So having him show up at the end of the last issue’s Action Comics had me nervy. He’s a big old monster who exists only to bash people to death – not very interesting, and I’d […]

Superman Doomed #1 review

Booster Gold #47 review

Well, it’d have been appropriate had Booster Gold ended at issue #52, but Flashpoint demands this is the last issue. Flashpoint also demands that Booster can’t save the day, but by gum, he makes a good effort. First off, it’s one more battle against Doomsday, a fight Booster’s set to lose until new lady love Alex intervenes, […]

Action Comics #901 review

There was outrage in sections of the US media recently as a story in Action Comics #900 saw Superman renounce US citizenship. Comic readers knew that as a standalone short in an anniversary issue, David Goyer’s tale would likely never be followed up on. And here we are just a month later, with President Obama making a personal […]
