Teen Titans #16 review

Longtime Teen Titans foe Mammoth has escaped from super-prison and he’s got a mad-on. Luckily, three Titans are on the scene and ready to round him up.  There’s an impressive display of teamwork, so you can understand why Starfire is confused afterwards, when it’s anything but Titans Together.  Feeling left out – and old – […]

Secret Six #7 review

Superman Annual #2 review

Superman Annual? Lois Lane Special, more like. And that’s fine by me, as we don’t see nearly enough of the First Lady of the DC Universe these days. The book opens with the striking image of Lois somehow struck down, convinced she’s about to die. Her whole life doesn’t flash before her eyes, but Lois […]
