Teen Titans #6 review

When it was announced that the new Power Girl was joining the Teen Titans, I was dubious. I remember Tanya Spears from Worlds’ Finest and liked her well enough, but she’s strong and invulnerable, and the Titans already have that in Wonder Girl. I like varied power sets.  Boy, was I wrong. The arrival of […]

Harley Quinn #12 review

It’s 2009 all over again. Harley Quinn graciously steps aside as Power Girl stars in the type of adventure typical of the deliriously delightful first year of her sorely missed series by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Amanda Conner.  Peege first dropped in – literally – last issue, amnesiac and pretty much Harley’s plaything. This time, with […]

Superman: Lois Lane #1

Once upon a time you could guarantee Lois Lane would be in pretty much every Superman story, as reporting rival, romantic partner or both. Since the 2011 relaunch Lois hasn’t been seen so much, with a steady boyfriend keeping her busy as Superman ‘enjoys’ a weird un-romance with Wonder Woman. I wouldn’t say Lois has […]

Legion of Super-Heroes #16 review

And so ends another chapter in Legion history, as the Legion of Super-Heroes mops up the last members of the Legion of Super-Villains and the sacrifice of one hero destroys the blue being behind recent calamities. One long-running mystery that’s resolved is the identity of the little blue god. The evidence pointed towards Krona, ancient […]

Adventure Comics #529 review

With tutors Night Girl, Bouncing Boy and Duplicate Girl taken out by Cosmic King, it’s up to the Legion Academy students to defend Legion of Super-Heroes HQ. And while they do a fine job, a sacrifice is the price they pay for victory. It’s satisfying to see the trainee heroes finally cut loose after months […]

Adventure Comics #528 review

It’s Graduation Day for Legion Academy students Nightwind, Power Boy, Lamprey and Crystal Kid but celebrations are muted in some quarters. Most of the younger students are deflated, angry or both at the fact that after years of training, none of the graduates are off to the Legion of Super-Heroes. They’re leaving Montauk Point, outside […]

Zatanna, stage magician and real-life enchantress. But as she’s all tied up with power leech Siphon, she’s bound to be silent. Her unavailablility tips the Kryptonian cousins off that she’s in need of a hand herself, so dispatching the dinos, they’re off to […]

Legion of Super-Heroes #12 review

It’s the Legion of Super-Heroes vs the Legion of Super-Villains in an action-packed instalment. Given that LSV leader – well, tyrant, actually – Saturn Queen has only recently begun gathering her troops I was expecting a longer preamble prior to any meaningful confrontation, but here we have the new LSV surprised by the 31st century’s […]

Superman/Batman Annual #5 review

Doomsday has hunted down the Cyborg Superman, Hank Henshaw, at the JLA Satellite while, trapped inside with them, are Supergirl and Batman. Outside, Blue Lantern Saint Walker and Starman Mikaal Tomas are helpless as the station morphs into the face of, first, Henshaw, then Doomsday. Neither bad guy is much interested in Batman, so he’s sidelined […]
