Dragged out for a night on the town by new landlady Dallas Sorrentino, Superboy meets her posse and finds he doesn’t like alcohol. He likes the thugs who threaten Dallas even less.

Superman 11 review

How’s that for a cover line? I’m down to learn the ‘secrets of the suit’. Why does the invulnerable Superman wear an armoured union suit?

Superman #8 review

Now that’s one creepy cover. The men behind it are Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Rod Reis, the artistic team making the current Aquaman series look so good. With luck, some of their fans will be enticed to check out this book starring the Sea King’s fellow Justice Leaguer, Superman. I know, it’s 2012 and […]

Superman #7 review

Alien overlord Helspont sends a powerful robotic ‘thrall’ to Metropolis to assess Superman and finds him worthy; worthy of enlisting him in his quest to make Earth Daemonite territory. When he finally meets Superman himself, he can’t understand something (click on image to enlarge): And with that one moment, showcasing a defiant hero, proudly wearing […]

Green Arrow #7 review

Take three girls. Three attractive, deadly girls. Triplets with massive assets. And never mind their brains, they’re stunning to boot – this is comics – and their blonde charms prove useful for getting Green Arrow’s attention. Along with hundreds of tiny arrows aimed at his head. Ann Nocenti gets her run as writer off to […]
