Trinity #1 review

Here’s a simple tale. Realising she, husband Clark and son Jon need friends in their new life, Lois Lane has invited Wonder Woman and Batman to dinner. Here’s a complex tale.

The Flash #21 review

Here’s an encounter I’ve been waiting for since DC rebooted their comics universe, the first meeting between the Flash, Barry Allen, and Kid Flash, Bart Allen. It comes about because someone is killing people connected to the Speed Force and Barry wonders if the Teen Titan knows anything. Bart though, doesn’t feel like listening to […]
