Superman #46 review

To get the obvious out of the way first, I want Truth to be over. I want Superman back in costume, powered up and living secretly as Clark Kent, playing well with his full supporting cast. I want Lois and Clark relations normalised. I want Perry White to reclaim his life from whoever the heck […]

Bizarro #1 review

It’s Bizarro No1 in Bizarro #1. Except behind the witty cover is ‘America: Part 6’.

Superman Unchained #1 review

There are no chains from which Superman breaks free in this issue. A better title would be Superman Unfolded, by virtue of the worst gimmick any DC comic has ever offered the world. Worse than stick-on Lobo. Worse than cardboard Bat heads. Worse, even, than plastic ‘diamonds’ that wreck every other comic around them. It’s […]
