Action Comics #984 review

The big question for me last issue was ‘Where’s Krypto?’ Having accompanied Lois, Jon and Clark to the Fortress of Solitude in the previous chapter of Revenge, he was neither seen nor addressed.

The Flash #30 review

The new Flash creative team of writers Robert Venditti & Van Jensen, and penciller Brett Booth debut and straight away … dismay me. They open with a flashforward to five years in the future, when things are looking distinctly gloomy for our hero because, well, don’t they always? I really don’t care what’s happening with […]
