Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 Review

We’ve all had days when we don’t know who we are anymore. But for Diana, this is the literal truth. A truth about falsehoods – she’s remembering conflicting stories about her past.  Was she made from clay? Or is she the daughter of Zeus.  How can she be god of war? What were the circumstances […]

Doom Patrol #7 review

This is one of those comic books in which the stars of the show hardly appear, but you’re having such a good time it’s barely noticeable.
