Marvel Double Action #1 review

Holy Hannah, it’s back to the Seventies for this entry in the current Heroes Reborn event. This pastiche reprint comic – think Marvel Triple Action – ‘represents’ the tragic day Sam Wilson died. Yes, in this world without a Spider-Man it’s not Gwen Stacey, but the Falcon who dies due to the diabolical dealings of […]

Supergirl Annual #2 review

The bad news. Supergirl has been sacrificed at the altar of the Batman Who Laughs crossover. The good news. Writer Robert Venditti finds a workaround so he can tell us a story of the last days of Krypton. And boy, do I love those. I must have read a dozen DC tales down the years […]

Supergirl #36 review

If you can’t say something nice… Well, yes, but I review this comic much every month and skipping an issue because I didn’t enjoy it is basically me saying, don’t bother.

Supergirl #25 review

Dog space suit! That’s my favourite thing in the first of three stories in Supergirl’s giant #25th issue. There’s other stuff in there, of course. Kara continuing her quest to learn the truth behind Krypton’s destruction, aided by Coluan scientist Z’ndr Col. A fight with new baddie Splyce, the Caretaker of Krypton, which sounds like […]
