Green Lanterns Rebirth #1 review

Green Lanterns are great. They have the ability to overcome great fear. A fantastic personality trait. Trouble is, the rest of their psyches are full of holes.

His captive, Superman, is horrified, […]

Superman #34 review

The Ulysses story continues with the new hero being introduced to his birth parents, the Quinns, who sent him off to another dimension because the world was ending, then, two minutes later, found it wasn’t. Oops. Bit of a parenting fail there.But Ulysses is an understanding fella, and he had a nice upbringing on the […]
