Justice League #60 review

Last issue, a new threat appeared in the kingdom of Kahndaq – Brutus, monstrous warrior from the homeworld of new heroine Naomi McDuffie. Now, having connected the invader’s energy signature to Naomi, Black Adam, Kahndaq’s ruler, wants a word, and turns up in her Oregon hometown with typical bombast.

Suicide Squad #6 review

Fight scene choreography is something I have trouble with; either a lot of artists are less than excellent at it or, more likely, I’m terrible at parsing the visuals.

Suicide Squad #2 review

Amanda Waller is gone. She’s ceded her job as Task Force X supremo to the mysterious Lok. And where it used to be that missions were voluntary – a super convict agrees to be a covert op for the US in return for remission – there are new rules. It doesn’t actually sound like a […]
