Nightwing #16 review

Here’s a book that promises something fun and gives us so much more. The cover tells us it’s Damian Vs Dick for the Bat-Crown. It’s a bit of a non-issue because Dick and Damian are a generation apart so there’s no reason they can’t both wear the pointy ears at some point. Heck, Dick already […]

And DC Rebirth has so much story, so much to chew over.  The headline, of course, is that this comic by writer Geoff Johns […]

Cyborg #1 review

Hey, Cyborg has a life? Who knew? Not me, and I’ve been following him in Justice League for three years. There, he’s basically a talking Boom Tube with a very loud whisk attachment. Here, he’s a guy with feelings, friends, maybe even a bright future. We join Victor Stone shortly after his latest JL sortie […]

Multiversity #1 review

A few years ago DC published Final Crisis. This comic tells the story of the one after that. It mirrors the original Crisis on Infinite Earths by having heroes from parallel universes gathered in a Monitor satellite to be told by Harbinger that Something Awful is Coming.  It differs in that the writer behind this comic – […]
