Action Comics #987 review

This is the one you’ve been waiting for! It’s an old comic book cover line, usually sheer hype. This, though, is the one we’ve been waiting for, the beginning of the storyline unveiling the identity of Mr Oz. The mysterious manipulator who’s been behind the scenes since DC Rebirth began stands revealed this issue.  Yes, […]

Justice League United #8 review

Andrew Robinson’s cover is impressive, like something from DC’s long-ago Hawkworld series.
