Action Comics #980 review

Kneel before Zod’s bubble butt! Blimey, that’s rather the cheesecake cover on the new Action Comics. Nothing like this scene happens inside, though, as this issue is the precursor to Cyborg Superman and the Eradicator meeting the former Phantom Zone villain. Presumably he’s still working on his glutes as this chapter opens with new Superman […]

Superman #19 review

Still, the scene jibes with my feelings as […]

In a prison cell, somewhere, Tim Drake laughs.  But who did Mr Oz have locked up, who would be obsessed with Superman and have the power to  break out of a cosmic cell?

Superman is convinced. L’Call the Godslayer and partner Zade have shown the Man of Steel visions of a future in which Lex Luthor is the new Darkseid. He agrees that Lex must die, that millions might live. He agrees to deliver the killing blow if they hand him the ceremonial sword.  I think we all […]
