Dark Nights: Death Metal #7 review

Wonder Woman is still fighting The One Who Laughs. Everyone else is still bashing said bad guy’s demon hordes. Heroes die. Heroes come back as part of Black Lantern Batman’s gang. Everyone knows reality is going to be rewritten any minute so few folk seem to be taking things seriously. By the power of Just […]

Superman #28 review

Superman has followed the Synmar Utopica to his homeworld. The stranger wants the Man of Steel there because… … I really have no idea.

Superman #26 review

Superman is falling to the ground. Or perhaps he’s flying upwards in the vertiginous opening to this issue’s chapter of the Never Ending Battle.

Khalid Nassour hasn’t been Doctor Fate for long and isn’t equipped to deal with such an experienced spellcaster, one whose natural might is […]

Superman #22 review

What with the Covid-caused delay to comics, it feels as if Superman has been fending off Mongul’s latest attack on Earth for ever. Happily, the space conqueror hasn’t reached us, we’re still unvanquished, and here’s the Man of Steel back and raring to go. Seriously, this is among the best battles with Mongul I’ve read; […]
