Supergirl #13 review

Well, this issue proved to have more ramifications for Kara than expected.  Part three of the Girl of No Tomorrow story, it concludes the Fatal Five’s visit to National City.

Clark Kent has high cholesterol. Who knew? That’s the cutest surprise this issue.

There’s loads of talent on display, from writer Greg Pak to co-writer and layout artist Aaron […]

Superman #39 review

Well, it’s taken a few issues, but Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr have come up with a Superman story that had me smiling from beginning to end.  Last issue saw our hero defeat super-creep Ulysses with a new manifestation of his heat vision that left him with no powers for a day. Then he […]
