Blue & Gold #8 review

Ryan Sook’s movie poster cover is the perfect opening to the final issue of a spectacularly good-natured mini-series. Two shining heroes getting great reviews for their endless good deeds. And that’s pretty much how things stand as ‘Unmasked at Last’ opens. Michael and Ted’s Blue & Gold Restoration venture has been doing good all over […]

Justice League #67 review

And once again we have a cover that seems to belong to a different month. Nowhere in this issue do Black Canary and Green Arrow fight a gang of Deathstroke cosplayers.

Superman Red and Blue #6 review

Immortal Wonder Woman #1 review

Before DC’s two-month Future State event began the company produced a free magazine, with features about the characters.

So although the Gotham-set books all reflect a Bladerunner future, they’re not all […]

Legion of Super-Heroes #11 review

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Legion… Earlier this week I was chatting on Twitter to other longtime Legion fans, saying that while I’m enjoying the latest Legion of Super-Heroes series, the team has rebooted so many times that I no longer think of any Legion beyond the original and Zero Hour versions as […]

Young Justice #20 review

It’s their final issue so what better time for the teenage superheroes of the Young Justice league to choose a new headquarters? Make that ‘an old headquarters’. It’s the Secret Sanctuary of the original Justice League of America; also, the HQ of Young Justice a multiversal reboot or two ago (as well as the Doom […]
