Justice League #24 review

There’s a colossal, unnatural storm in the Atlantic, threatening the Eastern Seaboard of the US and the Justice League are stepping up. Winds of 200mph are a threat, but when you have several members with super-speed and endurance, what’s to stop you stopping it? How about the wrath of a water witch? Mera plans to […]

Action Comics #49 review

There’s a moment in this comic that pretty much sums up my reaction to the continuation of the Truth storyline, which features a depowered Superman lost in a world of grumpy people.  Thank you, Justice League.  This is a frustrating issue. There’s loads of talent on display, from writer Greg Pak to co-writer and layout artist Aaron […]

Flashpoint #2 review

Yo ho ho, me hearties, it’s Deathstrokebeard and his merry pirate band. Clayface, Icicle, Electric Eel, Machiste, the Fisherman, they are indeed a motley crew. And more than faintly ridiculous in their pirate togs. Still, as Gypsy Rose Lee learnt, you gotta have a gimmick. Especially in  a crossover event. So it is that in […]

Flashpoint #1 review

Barry Allen wakes up at his desk in Central City’s crime lab to hear that he’s meant to be finding proof local hero Citizen Cold murdered someone named Miss Alchemy. Realising this isn’t his reality, he rushes into the corridor, spots he has no Flash ring and stumbles down the stairs. At the bottom is someone who’s […]
